Of Course He Does – So Roger Goodell wants to see ‘American’ Football in the Olympics …how not surprising is that.  Have said it before, Goodell has done a lot to get the NFL to where it is today, not just a Fall/Winter sport but pretty much a 365 day behemoth which you can’t avoid even if you tried.  I applaud his efforts to expand the awareness of the sport overseas but how can he even think this would ever, ever happen?  Baseball is played in more countries then football right now, and at higher levels, but you don’t see MLB clamoring for its inclusion in the Olympics.  Some things are better left alone & the inclusion of NFL style football in the Olympics is one of them.  Trying to push that agenda just makes Goodell look like a megalomaniac, which maybe to a certain extent he is.
