      yawn, watching olympic basketball is already boring, i wouldnt want to watch this either. they are leaning towards 7 on 7 we could probably send high schoolers to make it more competitive but would probably still easily win.

        How many countries actually play American-style football? I smell an NFL conspiracy. It's all a plan to expand, internationally...

          yep. this is a better plan than just plopping NFL franchizes down in other countries and hoping for the best. It's gotta be a grassroots system for other countries to not only love football and pay to watch it, but also supply the players who will make up the rosters.

                  7 on 7 it states, and at that i almost guessing flag. Wouldnt be hard to get alot of flag games in just like they do now with other sports

                    if it's flag football then forget it. What's the point?

                        not anabolic steroids, no. I think the NFL has a good testing proceedure, not perfect by any means, but good enough to test for blatant cheating.

                          bad idea. More obese people in the world and 99.9% won't make anything close to good money.

                            I have no idea if you're joking, talking about football, flag football, steroids...

                              On the world's stage American Football is niche sport, I don't see that changing anytime soon.
