    Water polo really needs to go it is just painful to watch… I think they need to add billiards.

    I agree.

    I'd kill off all team sports and bring it back to individual achievement.

    Ping pong isn't going to go anywhere, the Asians are insane for it. They LOVE it. But if they're going to get ping pong, we should get to keep softball goddammit!

    Every single time I turned on the TV we had endless volleyball heats or bloody water polo. zzzzzzzzz Coverage of field athletics was extremely patchy so we got a bit of javelin and pole vault. I don't recall seeing any hammer, discus, high jump, triple jump, long jump...

    It's pretty obvious where the big money sports are and that's where the TV cameras were too. Bring back the amateurs!

    Wha?? We got to see all the track & field. Did you not get to see high jump women with that stunning Russian girl? Or the Decathlon's Bryan Clay? Really some neat stuff. BTW, Aussies uniforms for the ladies basketball team were SO much better than ours!

    I'd get rid of soccer and tennis cause there are too many Championships and all that for them, handball cause it's really boring, baseball and softball cause no one watches it outside the USA and it's boring as hell, equestrian cause it's animal abuse and some ridiculous shit like tandem diving, triathlon and all that. Oh and women's beach volley because my boyfriend goes gaga over it.

    I don't really want to add anything. The Olympics are too big as they are.

    I think that every sport should be represented at the Olympics. To me the Olympics is the best of the best. In every sport. I'd like to see that. I just wish the tv stations here in Aus wouldnt be so fucking biased.
