This is a question that commonly comes into people's head. Which sport should become olympic? Many a people have said rugby, polo should become olympic. more recently squash has been applying for the 2012 olympics
I'd therefore wanted to start a thread concerning which sport should become olympic and which you think have the best chances....cheers

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Roller (AKA in-line) hockey. If it were to become an Olympic sport, some of the national teams could potentially have NHL players on them, as some of them have played in various roller hockey leagues since many of them operated in the summer. In some areas, roller hockey is become quite popular and the demand for roller hockey rinks is beginning to be up there with ice hockey rinks.
This is the team sport with the largest worldwide following that is missing. Besides it's only right that the true rugby powers get a chance to claim the title, the USA are the reigning gold medalists having won it in the early 1900s the last time it was cotnested at the games.

Quoting DSMflyer (Reply 20): Baseball, after they get rid of it following the '08 Olympics. It's ridiculous that it was voted out.
And get all the damn professional athletes out of the games. I don't want to see The Rocket, LeBron, or any other professionals out there. Get the amateurs, the college players, the people who play for the right reasons! Can I get an amen from the congregation?
