Maybe we shouldn't focus so much of our society around sports in the first place?

mathamagical: On the one hand Fark china, on the other Fark the ioc, on the other if the us doesn't go it will make the hockey tournament less interesting.

If we skip china we better be skipping whatever upcoming events are thrown in horrible dictatorships in the middle east too otherwise it'll just look like hypocritical whining


Don't worry, the US Men's soccer team will probably boycott the next FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

/by not qualifying for it

At least the Summer Olympics should be taken back to Greece.  They should simply build a one-time, state-of-the-art facility and every country that participates helps pay for upkeep.  Do the same for the Winter Olympics where it makes sense.  The only part I actually enjoy about it moving around are the ceremonies that the different countries put on.  Beyond that, meh.  After the mess that was Rio, it just needs to stop.
