So the USA softball lost for the first time since 2000 in Sydney. How?? :(

Now I guess softball is going to be gone in future years....anyone know why this is? Pretty stupid in my opinion unless they have some good reason I can't think of.

Since the IOC decided to cut baseball, I'm assuming they decided to lump the two sports together. They didn't like MLB'S weak drug policy and refusal to allow MLB players to participate. As for softball, I remember one of the reasons was the USA dominated too much, but that doesn't seem to be an issue anymore.

By that logic, swimming should be eliminated cause Phelps won every event.

I don't see how it's our fault that we dominate the sport. The other countries just need to get better. Our handball teams are terrible, so how about we get rid of that as well since softball is being removed.
