Eliminate One Olympic Sport and Add One Olympic Sport
« on: May 18, 2021, 02:01:38 pm »
The discussions this week are lame. Break up the Sino-minutiae.

Figure this should be discuss-y enough without being troll-y. 

Get rid of sailing. If you're going to keep it, add sharks or some shit.

Add in MMA. It's one of the biggest sports in the world and for it not to be an Olympic sport is just plain stubbornness.

Also, they should add American football just because.

Get rid of some of those shooting events. It's not like shooting a gun is a great test of your athletic ability. Or the equestrians events, if you got to involve another living being, it shouldn't be in the Olympics.

Horse racing is the sport of kings and equestrian is the sport of gentlemen and ladies. I say it stays. Riding horses is NOT easy. There's a definite body skill factor involved. That being said, yeah I can see that the people will be gunning for equestrian events.

The problem with shooting is they use those lame air pistols. Have people compete with real firearms. That or have them do like, the Gurkha shooting competition or some sort of John Wick course.

Maybe add shuffleboard?

Didn't say it was easy, but exploitive. It's not like you know the horse's true feelings about getting on a plane, and then competing.

What exactly is it that "the crazies" wish to happen? What sports have already been ruined by them? And which sport is next on their agenda?

That's a good question.  I guess they are just beginning their ascent so there is plenty of ruining to be done.

A man can't get pregnant is a triggering statement that will fire up the crazies and the extremists. 

Science doesn't matter when it comes to feelings.

Is bullfighting an Olympic sport?  Also, an incredibly elaborate obstacle course a la American Gladiator would be cool.  Great for TV. Equestrian events may require skill but how many people outside of the event are tuning into an afternoon of dressage?

when we add MMA, are we getting rid of boxing, karate, judo, taekwondo, and the two kinds of wrestling?
also get rid of curling, who gives a fk about curling

You a big fan of women's sports there? Support them by going to watch your local team? Or are you just using them as a prop for whatever beef you have?

Maybe not dressage, but show jumping. And if they added some horse racing to it, well that would certainly draw interest.

If the bull was given metal-tipped horns and none of those piccadillos or whoever on horses helping out the matador, then I'd be for that. Something like a 50-50 between the man and the bull. Give em one of those 1950s style boxing posters  "Throwdown in Cape Town" Or have it be the first Olympics in international waters.

Hmmm...should be under consideration

i think all the fight sports should stay as they're all sufficiently different (except karate. karate can **** right off after 2020). MAYBE get rid of greco-roman. but boxing/tkd/judo/wrestling are all different enough imo

i'd love to see skateboarding but it's too subjective. but an olympic game of SKATE would be tight
more gg more skill

Well, I could advocate for men's sport, but trans men are no threat physically speaking. They still have a women's lung, heart, muscle, and bone density.
