BTW, I think it is highly unlikely that this will happen unless there is another terrorist attack in which many Americans are killed.

That would be bad news for the players that know they will have only one chance at getting to the olympics

ala 1980 Moscow

"...spokesman for the US Olympic Committee said: “Today there is absolutely no consideration given to the notion our team will not be in Athens.”

I remember 1980 and I tought that it was very unfair to the American athletes who knew it was going to be their last Olympics.
