for example, the olympics, the USA is usually in the top two or three countries for the last decade or so, atleast.

And yet Jamaica, with a population of 2.7 million dominates track and field, and India struggles to even compete.

I just don't get how you guys can have the arrogance to say "if we actually tried we'd beat you"

This is the type of shit Fuuma was referring to. It's fucking annoying.

confirmed troll...

 

Formula 1 clearly doesn't pay the bills well enough, so does tennis or any other sport that is not dominated by muricans ;-)

 

edit: nice how you edited that post...

Americans, in general, get their asses kicked in cycling. Belgium ftw.

If you're a naturally gifted young athlete in the US, you are funneled into football or basketball. That's just the way it is. Baseball is in the next tier, and below that is everything else.

That Kevin Ware injury in the Louisville Duke game was gruesome.  Looked like a tibia-fibula compound.  Poor guy.

That's the way it is in most countries.

Here is Julian Savea. He is naturally gifted at running over people.
Does that mean I think he's going to dominate the sport of table tennis if he gave up rugby?

Somehow I don't think he'd be particularly good at this:

I've only seen one injury worse.

Not for the faint of heart.

Hendrix, if there was the infrastructure/money/popularity to train in table tennis at an early age in the US, someone like him probably could become pretty good at it. When I referred to naturally gifted young athletes, I was referring to people whose physical gifts translate better to explosive sports. Sports like football and basketball highlight the disparity in physical ability between people. There are other sports that are more forgiving in that regard. You have to take body shape/etc. into account, but you could find some less popular sport equivalent such as wrestling or even shot put or something for someone like him.

Also Regis, did you order the purple Margiela shorts? They look pretty nice.

There's always more popular sports that take the best athletes in every country.

Here, rugby dominates. In eastern Europe olympic weightlifting has a large following. there are probably rugby players and weightlifters who could've been exceptional Gridiron players.

But they're not, and it's stupid to say "if we cared about it, New Zealand could produce teams that would smash the USA at American Football".
