    And do you think would win the Gold then?

    And how about commenting on the CommonWealth Games comment, or is because you have no arguement and I have won it?

    No I don't think that they would be guaranteed a Gold.

    I didn't comment on the Commonwealth Games because the only thing I could say to that is that it was in 2002, and more recent 7s have been very close and have more relevance.

    Lets get rid of the sports that get their fair share in the sun like football & to some extent basketball etc. Id much prefer to see someone beat the odds in table tennis than watch yet another excuse for football to be played.

    No I am not digging myself into a hole.

    I am only defending myself in an arguement, and I have the guts to comment, like a few certain forum members run off when questions get asked at them.

    I think New Zealand would be in a medal match at least, and New Zealand are strong in 7's (Like winning of recent Titles).

    But Marc who do you think you win Gold?

    i cant agree, i dont care what anyone says, the olympics is the pinacle of the sporting world, should that mean the highest profile sports like football shouldnt be in the games? There should be more sports not less...

    I cannot say because it is too close to call - there's no one dominant side, and even if there was 1 dominant side, that's no guarantee of Gold (look at the USA 4x100 side and Basketball side)

    Yeah, probably because baseball is a kid's game.

    Heck, I get bored to tears watching baseball. It is about the most boring game I've ever seen. Jumped-up Rounders is all it is. It's fine to play, but not much fun to watch.

    If there were more sports the Olympics would go on for 3 weeks or more! And how could a city or country bank-roll so many events & stadiums?
    A gold-medal for 7's rugby?...what a waste of time.

    The olympics going for longer wouldnt be a bad thing, they could easily add a few more sports and extend the games by 4 days....

    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 *********!
