I was cruising around today and came across this post by the Scrapyard Dawgs:

I am happy that these players have earned the honor of being able to represent their country at the Olympic games in 2020.  But I cannot help but think that these are the Dawgs' best players, and if they are playing for Team USA they won't be playing at the Scrapyard.  So should this team really be celebrating the leave of absence of their best players?  Should the Dawgs be celebrating Team USA selections?

Gonna be interesting this season. 5 Dawgs, 4 Pride & 3 Bandits on Team USA rosters. Maybe this will give the Racers a better shot at a Championship? Who knows maybe we will have an International Champion?

If this is a signal that Team USA and the NPF are working together then why not celebrate it? Of course it'll have an impact on the NPF season, but it'll also gives some other players a chance to step up and make a name for themselves too.

Big problem: Will fans attend games when the best players are not playing, or even in attendance? Don't think most fans will? If softball is put on the Paris 2024 roster will these NPF players stay with Team USA? I just don't see the NPF keeping the best players if they can go play on the USA Olympic Team. A player can make a lot of money off an Olympic Gold Medal!

Can't answer for anyone, but if softball was included in the 2012 Olympics would all those players have left Team USA for the NPF after 2008?
