Rugby 7s is far more competitive internationally than Baseball with far more teams with the potential to win. It's also much better to watch, in fact it'll probably be the best sport to watch at the summer Olympics, period. It should stay. Just because Americans don't play it much doesn't mean it should be dropped.

If anything is removed it should be racewalking since whether or not a walker is actually walking is completely subjective and we can see on TV that none of them actually are anyway. It's BS and comes down to who's style looks the most like walking while still actually running.

No it's not. When walking, regardless of speed, you are ALWAYS in contact with the ground thru one of your feet, in running you break contact with the ground.

If a proper, viewer friendly format could be developed along with some better camera angles and commentators who don't sound like California surferboys I don't see why it wouldn't work.
As is though, no..

I agree with this, rugby is played everywhere and it's one of the toughest sports I've ever played!

Few sports are more competitively internationally than baseball (or basketball for that matter). Just because European countries suck at it, doesnt mean its not more competitive. Chuck on the WBC once in awhile and maybe you'll educate your simple, euro-centric mind.

Rugbys about as tough as a 9th grade girls pillow fight. Grow a set.

The problem is live paintball is boring, and until the sport cleans up its attitudes it doesn't belong in the olympics or even the xgames. Far too much blatant cheating. All 3 sports you listed are more exciting to watch than paintball if you ask me.
There are way too many examples of times you get hit and can get away with cheating, therefore, it will never be an olympic sport simply because of that.

none of u are ambassadors of this sport if u dont think it deserves to be in the olympics...cheating happens in every sport. if you ever want to see paintball become a real recognized sport we are going to need to get as much publicity and popularity as we can. if u think about it...if this sport ever became as big as snowboarding (which started at about the same time) we need to get off our high horse and start to welcome all people and aspects for the sport. if cheating is the issue lets have 1 or 2 reffs watching each player. u guys act as tho these lil problems will prevent it from ever happening. i think its jus a matter of time b4 it happens.

and how badass would it be to represent USA, as one of the best in ur country to play against the top players from around the world. i think it wud be an awesome idea because almost 40 known countries already play tournament paintball. all we need to get is to 75 countries to compete on a world wide scale and have it be known as an olympic sport. which will hopefully have some real money thrown at it so it can become a real sport and people can make a living off it.

Naw, I love the sport. I just know there is no money to be made in televising paintball. And there isnt enough popularity to put it in the olympics. And when there's no popularity, there's no $$$.

An Olympic pie eating contest would be more fun to watch than Olympic paintball.

They won't even consider adding paintball to the x games, why the hell would they add it to the Olympics?

It won't even make the X-Games because the only people who say "yes" are those who type like they're 14.

I don't really see why not. I just wonder if they will start discussions with special kill cams on each player to check if they got hit. And who knows with what crazy ideas people would come up...
