There is a little debate about which sports should and should not be included in the Olympics, particularly soccer. Let’s go down the rabbit hole!

Beau Duré, a freelance Guardian, writes in: “I actually wrote for Soccer America that women’s soccer no longer needs the Olympics and it would be better to emphasize continental tournaments, including what I call AAA: America, Africa, Asia.

“Sports that have long-established competitions that are more important than their presence at the Games should try to do something different to make their Olympic competitions unique. How about mixed team golf and tennis events?

“But the mistake people make is to think that a sport that is not important their the country should not be big anywhere. USA! USA! USA! don’t go crazy for canoe / kayak slalom. But when I covered it in Beijing, the press tent was overflowing. I think half of Eastern Europe was there. “

Joel eley he writes and says this: “The solution for football is to replace it with futsal. Easy to do. I also think that Olympic sports should be one of the main achievements in that sport, so there is no football or golf for me, and I cannot understand why they are so against including netball. “

Scott thinks a quick game is a good game: “Olympic football should consist of penalty shootouts ONLY! It’s exciting to watch and finish quickly! Yes! “

Another tweeter called VoiceOfTheMysterons offers a slightly more outlandish suggestion: “Continuing the theme of the new Olympic sports, and as a means of attracting even * younger * spectators and competitors, how about Tail the Donkey, Musical Statues and What’s the time, Mr. Wolf? “

Do we consult the experts? Jonathan Liew writes this: “This, perhaps, is the biggest problem in Olympic football: a problem that feels specific to men’s football, but may come in time to subsume women’s football as well. Nobody seems to really know what it is: a development competition, a star vehicle, a sideshow. “
