    Maybe that's the ultimate solution. Remove ALL nationalities and have the athletes compete as independent individuals (or independent teams for team sports).

    Unfortunately, the games would still have to be held somewhere, and somebody would still get all butt hurt over something, and would encourage another boycott.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    They wear our flag. If we say stay home, and they are patriotic, they do.

    What if the rule was Pray to Allah, would you still feel it was just a cultural thing? What if the rule was you can kiss anyone, as long as it's the same sex? You all good with that? It's the same difference.

    That rather defeats the entire point of the games.

    Why would they be arrested and deported as long as they aren't making out in public. I don't see why there is a need for a boycott at all. Just don't show that you're gay in public while you're in Russia. I don't think Russia cares what we think anyway.
