The Olympics are not like any other planetary race on the planet. In 16 days, there are over 300 events that represent 35 sports and each country is competing on the planet to host their prized coins and look forward to the 4-year Summer Olympics as long as I can remember. But there was always something missing. One of the most popular sports in the United States and the 10 most popular sports in the world, it seems that handling the 2024s and flag football can be an Olympic sport, but there are still obstacles to becoming reality. First of all, we explain why it was not easy for American football to enter the Olympics, so let's follow why we think flag football is a logical solution and choice as the Olympic Sports of the Future
WHY NOT AMERICAN FOOTBALL OLYMPIC SPORTS?
According to a NFL.com article, the biggest logistical problems in American Football's sporting activities at the Olympics are very similar to Rugby's game. With a large number of players in the teams, the "gender equality" formats, where both men and women are involved in all sports, and a compressed 3-week schedule that would be a harder physical game than between football and rugby. Furthermore, in the case of American football, the entry limit is largely due to the fact that each player must equip the pillows and the equipment, so it is used slowly in many foreign countries, especially for the poorer type.
Knowing all this, it's hard to notice that the sport would be suitable for the Summer Olympics. Rugby is very similar to football, as there is very little sport in terms of gear and exercise, its basic level and much more international tracking. This, among other things, has recently allowed Rugby to start the Olympics from 2016 when traditional style is replaced by a less traditional "hetens" format that is moving faster with fewer people that could help a similar track for American football or soccer football more accurately.
IMPROVING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
More and more high school, college and professional teams are beginning to reduce the number of contact exercises, still sporting the soft padded headgear and shoulder protector. But what if we were to limit contacts to high school and high school while addressing concerns about sports that fully accepted the Olympics? There are many controversies recently and not just in the NFL, where concussions give cause for serious concern. From recent levels of youth football, evidence is based on the idea that even concussions, recurring puzzles and collisions may appear in later age brains in the 8-13 age group. Many researchers suggest that children should not play football at all, suggesting that the head of a child is "the bulk of their body and their neck is not as strong as the adult's neck and brain injury as adults."  DREW BREES LIES TO FLAG FOOTBALL SAVE GAME
From 2015, studies show that flag football is the fastest-growing youth sport in the United States, far exceeding the growth in traditional football. Many individual high schools replace football soccer and invite schools from other regions to follow the creation of organized tournaments and classes. Even an officially recognized university sport in many states, and women, especially flag football, is a way to have easier participation against the physical nature of tackle.And he is not the only one. Recently, Drew Brees was interviewed by Peter King on NBC's preparatory program, and he had some strong words on why he thinks flag football is the answer. "I feel that football football can save football," Brees said. Brees coach son flag football team and played flag football himself in junior high, he never played to handle soccer in high school. "I feel like (flag football) is a great introduction to many kids in football," said Brees. "Otherwise, I feel it is very easy to get in and get early bad experiences, and then I do not want to play again. I feel like you put the pillows once, so many other elements are in the game, in the trainer's favor in many cases and to be honest , I do not think enough coach knows enough about the real basis of the game, especially when the cushion continues on the youth level. "Many other professional athletes and coaches shared similar feelings, praised the sport of flag football and the popularity of sport
Football football is not a disappointment or just a recreational development tool that nourishes football, a full-fledged movement that has its own identity and purpose, and it is time to recognize this difference
Internationally, it is becoming more popular, much faster than traditional American football , where the entry barrier is much greater than the need for complete pillows and equipment. In Mexico, for example, flag football is popular, where most are seen # 2 to play soccer and to close fast, and it is estimated that 2.5 million children attend primary school. International troops are starting to leave some of the popular American flag football tournament with Panama, Indonesia, Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, and more frequent events.
Everywhere the flag of the sport flags the interest and interest of the football.
Adult level was a record year for flag football football. New big tournaments are on the rise all over the world as thousands of teams participate in all ages, formats and styles. Cash prizes were high at all times, expected to exceed $ 100,000 in the next calendar year. Sponsors have begun to recognize EA Sports, Nerf, Hotels.com, Red Bull and other big brands who have seen the value and growth of flagging football so they can reach their target audience a great deal. Women are always at a high level, reflecting their popularity at the youth level, and most favored in American football in Central and South America.
So, how does this lead to the Olympics and the American Football as an official sport? Let's first look at a little story where the sport is now with the International Olympic Committee or the International Olympic Committee
. Historically, an international alliance is needed to enter the Olympic Games as a demonstration sport for a world championship race. It must be at least 6 years ahead of the planned Olympic Games. The International Federation of American Football, focusing mainly on the fight against football, has a flag in the league, complied with this standard and was approved in 2012 and was provisionally awarded in 2014. This could create a path for American football, sport and flag football, such as sport discipline, but IFAF has since faced a disadvantage because of alleged scandals, mismanagement of events and the spoils of funds that do not mean the short time of sport shooting. Fortunately, in 2007, the International Olympic Committee adopted a new, more flexible set of rules enabling the programs to be revised after each Olympia, starting in 2020, releasing all sports to present their case by winning a simple majority vote
. So, the opportunity for US football to be part of the world's most prestigious sporting event, but how can we overcome the obstacles to the sport's structure to meet a successful Olympic sports event?
FLAG A FOOTBALL THE OLYMPIC INCLUSION PICTURE
Football in all respects does not fit into the mold as a logical choice for the NOB, there is flag football. Here are the 4 most important reasons why football should be the next Olympic sport.
first Less physically demanding than the soccer ball
As we have already stated, football is a much safer alternative than football. Less hits and crashes mean fewer injuries, and flag football is a proven success story model to be commended for keeping the game for future generations. But when it comes to the Summer Olympics, security is only a part of the physical needs of the sport, considering that you fit less than a 3-week window at all levels of competition and have lifelong action in practice and right. Imagine playing 6 to 7 full-fledged football games with limited contacts in just 16 days, not to mention other possible tournaments during the year. For banner football it is not uncommon to play 6-7 games on weekends or even one more day, so the sport is more than prepared for this game.
2nd International Football Football Interest Exploding
As mentioned above, this is an important issue in determining whether a sport is fit to take into account and while traditional American-style football is extremely popular around the world, this is a lower barrier to entry as much as costs and equipment go, do not require full length and striped soccer fields for participation and it is easier to hold larger competitors and championships to encourage local interests.
Less Participants Needed
Depending on which format is used (our idea is either 5v5 or 7v7), football requires far fewer participants than traditional football. Part of this is due to the fact that less physically demanding sports and less substitution are needed and the other is due to the need for fewer specialized players such as kickers, punters, special teams, offensive lineman, and so on. the team is likely to have 50+ competitors, so the flag must have a maximum of 15 players and less than one third of the number. This is important because the Olympics cover 10,500 athletes and coaches. Again, it is possible to compete for more countries, especially in poorer countries, where the smaller and less financially motivated team has more sense for the above reasons
. This is not just male sport
Gender equality is the ONG's main focus. The 2012 Summer Olympics were the first in the category of competing women in the sport. Today, the new sport, which belongs to the Olympic Games, must include both male and female participants. To combat football, women's players have almost the same interest in understanding. Although there are female players and even some women's football championships and organizations, they simply do not fit in mold, especially with physical factors and other issues that hinder entry. For flag football, this is not a problem as above, and women's participation is internationally booming.
THE NEXT STEPS TO FLAG FOOTBALL AND OLYMPIC INCLUSION
So how can we take the next steps to bring the flag's football momentum straight to the next available Olympic Games? IFAF has already helped start the process of acquiring UN football in recent years, but with their public opinion and apparently no move from 2014, further steps need to be taken to make progress. What we know is that flag football is taken seriously at all levels since we are first involved in history where larger organizations are taking steps to enter the flag for football and to create bigger and more international events representing bigger sports. We believe that football, even against one's own or against football, will appear in a number of FUTURES in the next 10-20 years.
