If Football was in the Olympics(series conclusion)

Recommended Posts

I've always wondered what it would be like if football was in the Olympics. So the way I have it set up is a 16 team bracket.

here's the qualified teams:

USA

Canada

Great Britian

Germany

Austria

Mexico

France

China

Japan

Russia

Netherlands

Argentina

Australia

Brazil

Czech Republic

Poland

Starting with the USA

away will be posted soon. C&C is appreciated and questions are welcome.

Edit: Now is 18 team bracket with Italy and Spain replacing the Czech Republic and Poland, plus the addition of Denmark and Sweden

Always at least interesting when people do these ha

I'd hope the US would have a much subtler uniform. These are kinda predictable.

But if they want to use the flag that garishly, they shouldn't reverse the stars on the shoulders.

I'm a big fan of this and Love the US concept you've got going but I would hope they wouldn't play in 2014 in Sochi seeing as they are the winter Olympics but 2016... I'm all for that!

It would make for a better preseason than what the NFL has now. However, it would make for a much better Pro Bowl if it were in the winter games.

As for the concept, no complaints. I love it. Can't wait to see what's next!

This is cool, but the USA would destroy everyone else in football. Not to take away from these concepts, I'm just saying.

This is the kind of thing Nike would do.

I really like the concept except for the sleeves. I agree that the colors on the stars should not be reversed, and I think the other sleeve might look better with horizontal rather than vertical stripes.

Yes, but that's what happened at first in basketball. And then other countries caught up.

That's because other nations actually play basketball.

Yao Ming, Pau Gasol and others represented their home nations, even though they play in the "American" league. And with the CFL, I'd predict the US and Canada sweeping gold and silver every single time.

Doesn't make it any less fun to watch. I could watch the US smash other nations in basketball any day and I'm not even a big fan of the sport. Football, though? Count me in.

I'm not sure we would see top football stars play. As it is now, we only have Japan and Canada as threats

Actually Poland ain't too bad either. And IIRC Sweden is decent as well. And if allowed, I think American Samoa could be a contender.

Love the jerseys, but personally, I'm not digging the helmets. I think the sleeves ape the flag enough that you could take some creative liberties with the helmet a little more. Maybe a shooting star to get a center helmet stripe look? Just my two cents. That said, this is a great concept, and I can't wait to see the whole set!

Make the helmet more subtle and you have a winner.

correction on my series, jersey's will be a primary and secondary since color v. color is allowed.

Well it's hypothetical, so imagine if football was a global sport.

also should the secondary be red or white?

But in basketball, when America started sending NBA players (late 80s) there were multiple euro stars. Drazen Petrovic, Sarunas Marciulioni, Detlef Shrepmpf, Arydas Sabonis, etc. The NFL doesn't have those guys right now. There are practically no foreign players.

Good idea. It would be neat to have national football teams. I like your mix of the blue and red.

The white set is beautiful. I'd use it over the red, which is also good. The white pants help the white uni's as well

I really like these. A good concept that I can fell the patriot inside of. Sound too poetic? Well anyway, I'll follow this thread, love the us uniforms. Just keep the stripe and star split on the helmet. Nice keeping it simple, while putting a jazzy taste.

My complaint is that there are too many stars on the helmet. I'd make them bigger, and only 50 of them. Maybe a ring of 13 on the sleeve to reference the initial 13 colonies
