I guess he think that the rest of the world plays American Football? Big dummy.

Not to mention the risk of injury as many of you have already mentioned.

What a hoot, and what was he thinking, key word there, "thinking"! Not a chance, not in any lifetime.

I think they should have Professional Wrestling instead, it an be a subdivision of wrestling (freestyle, greco-roman, professional) each country sends one wrestler plus one tag team, and all the cheating, controversy, and bad publicity can begin and end with that sport, it can be self contained and above all else, the promos would be more interesting than the ones NBC shows between events now !

They could make it olympic flag football. Imagine trying to grab Chris Johnson or Adrian Peterson's flags?

They actually have a football World Cup every four years. The US didnt compete the first two competitions. but have dominated the last 2 competitions with Division I and II players.

IFAF World Championship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Well, Goodell is tired of people snickering whenever he mentions that the NY Giants are the "World Champs".
