    Television ratings? Try to find pentathlon or any shooting sport on TV olympic coverage. All you will see is paired underwater lesbian swimming and ribbon twirling and diving. Maybe an hour of a fruit on a horse jumping over shit. All interspersed heavily with Bob Costas gushing over the tragic private lives of obscure athletes using long emotional sentences.

    Next thing they will do away with will be track and field, but they will replace it with Americas newest favorite sport, nannying. Front runners for gold seem to be Bloomberg and the state of California.

    Fucking faggots. It's because the 15 voters represent countries that only won like 3 or 4 medals of the 72 handed out in wrestling last year.

    To be fair, they used to do all the events naked.

    Track had to suck.

    On second thought, we should bring that back. If all the Olympic events were done in the nude, I'd totally watch more. Ratings would be way up.

    The ad revenue for women's gymnastics would be ridiculous.

    Woman's beach volleyball is paving the way.

    Yet the following Olympic events exist:

    Handball
    Badminton
    Table Tennis
    20km race walk
    50km race walk
    Dressage--whatever the hell that is (some sort of fancypants horse walking or something)

    Golf. They replaced wrestling with fucking golf. If they replaced it with MMA, they'd be one thing, but they replaced it with with one of the most boring games on Earth.
    Naked kickboxing was worse.

    Naked female Olympics would rule (for the most part, unless some bitch was bleeding.)

    It certainly would've outed some of those Chinese and East German "women" that won a bunch of medals over the years.

    Golf? At least those other asshat sports require constant physical effort.

    Yeah, I'm thinking different threads is not going to help other countries beat us and Russia, which is why IOC took it away.
