Can there ever be a new sport to gain the spotlight, notoriety, athletic grandeur, and merchandising heights like that of the major sports of baseball, football, hockey, basketball, boxing, soccer, auto racing, and even lacrosse? So far, only variants of the major sports have come close to achieving that level of success but went off as a fad. With the fictitious "Rollerball", the use of diminished roller derby brings a new forum but how will it be a sport? There was a movie called "Baseketball" in which baseball and basketball were combined. That sport did not fly. Then there's wrestling.
