    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    I think 20/20 cricket would be good, even though i've never seen a game of it..

    Union 7's would be good, Same with League 7's. Netball is another which should be considered..
    I wouldn't mind Rugby 7's - another Gold for New Zealand

    I would axe Dressage. How anybody can find it entertaining is beyond me - and that is not like me to say that

    Other 7's teams would be surprisingly competitive. "Another Gold" you make it sound as if you've won a fair amount already

    Couldn't agree more on the dressage though (Other equestrian is OK)

    Mate if you appreciate anything to do with horses you would understand dressage... The things the horses do are amazing...

    i agree, just because i dont find a sport uninteresting doesnt mean i think it shouldnt be an olympic sport, theres probably 1 or 2 people on earth who enjoy the equistrian, so why shouldnt they get the chance to see their sport in the games....

    I agree with Blewy, i done Dressage when i was a nipper at pony club and it is hell hard...couldn't be bothered watching it but many horsey people enjoy it alot.

    As for cricket...no it shouldn't be in the big Os, enough joke sports in their already.

    I reckon 20/20 cricket could be in the olympics- wouldn't it be over faster than a baseball or softball match? why not cut those two and have 20/20 instead. I reckon more people play cricket across the world than baseball- the entire population of the indian subcontinent wouldprobably outnumber baseball people by themselves, not counting all the rest.

    I'm not really into horse's, I have tried to get into it, but I find it painfully dull.

    At least the commentary could be a little bit more exciting.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    We're not debating the amount of people who follow each sport, just that it is played more widely than cricket.

    If you go deep into South America, I bet they wouldn't know what cricket was, but would know what baseball was.
