  2. Well, (1) the IOC is trying hard to cut down the costs of the bid campaign; and (2) if RSA played the "Africa card" shrewdly, I am sure a $25 million campaign will more than suffice. They should also hire someone like Mike Lee to guide the campaign. And maybe Durban should go for the 2022/26 CWGames first before shooting for the BIg One. Once they have those items checked off, an RSA bid would be unbeatable.

  4. Lol Maybe they wont bid at the end, only a 0.1% of non-americans may now where it is. Its simple, Tlusa = doesnt respresnts the American people. Badenweiler, GER; for example, seems to have more national identity. So even Orlando hosting Olympics hears better

  5. Gladly, but if you're still going to post inaccuracies about me, then I'll have to correct your absurdities. It'll be easier to forget about you once you stop posting such diatribe.

  7. It's not a question of any lack of faith in Spain's ability to provide adequate security. Of course I'd expect it's military and intelligence and policing would be up to the task. But it's a bit of a cheek to fudge your security budget figures so much so you can pitch your bid as some zero cost or sub-billion dollar games. In 2012, the contract for GS4 alone, the company that was going to do the private security before it defaulted, was about $425 million. Being abit more up-front and honest, rather than try to pass up the whole security budget as a mere $18 million, would have been better for

  8. Urrggghhh......I'd have absolutely no problem if you showed no personal interest in the test because of the team selection. But actively supporting the other side because Scottish players aren't good enough at the moment is what annoys me. Sorry. Don't you reckon it'd be FAVOURING Scotland if Gatland were to pick a Scottish player over an English or Welsh one he felt was superior? What you're actually asking for is special treatment in some ways, with the threat of supporting the Aussies if your players don't get in. Perhaps it's time Scotland looked at why it's not getting players into the

  12. Noone wants a shitty cheap games. God how many times does it need to be said. What $2 billion budget? When London was what $14 billion? And Sochi is $50 billion? Modest is a freaking understatement. The IOC are already rather embarrassed by the huge cost blowout by Sochi I don't think they want to see a $2-3 billion dollar game budget prediction to quadruple. Play it safe, choose the more capable, more realistic city. Tokyo.

  14. FIFA wants Argentina-Uruguay 2030 World Cup: Grondona BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - FIFA wants the centenary World Cup in 2030 to be jointly staged by Uruguay and Argentina, who met in the final of the inaugural tournament, Argentine FA (AFA) president Julio Grondona said on Thursday. In 1930, Uruguay, then the double Olympic champions, beat Argentina 4-2 in the showpiece match at the Centenario stadium in Montevideo in front of a crowd of more than 80,000. "FIFA wishes to celebrate the World Cup's 100 years in Argentina and Uruguay, I can confirm that," said Grondona, the senior vice-president
