  1. Didn't even bother to read more than a couple sentences. I'm done with this whacked site filled with angry crazy people who also have personality defects. You're ridiculous.
  2. Instanbul is going down the path to becoming an Islamist republic at this point. And too much part of the powder keg of crazies known as the Middle East (even though they absurdly call themselves "Europe"). I do think another Rome games would be nice. It'd be nice if it went from Paris to Rome.
  3. You're nuts. And compulsive to boot. You've never read something in a magazine or a newspaper and tossed it down 'cause something you read you didn't like? Or thought it was stupid? Ridiculous? Really? And why do you interpret things to such extremes? And what significance does reading it in a newspaper have? Also, I actually lived in L.A. for over a decade. Did you? You're just as crazy here as others man. You really try to portray yourself as Mr. Know-it-all. Mr. I'm -So-Rational. But you're crazy. It's like you're yelling at eveyone and shaking your finger at them when you type. This place is a anylum of really....interesting people....and you're the leader.
  4. It's funny but you keep trying to pigeonhole me into the same category and "motives" as apparently is usual of the people around here. You come off as a real "know it all", as in you think you do.
  5. Being so much bothered by it? You exagerrate like there's no tomorrow.
  6. Where do get that it's "personal"? You make a lot of assumptions about people. L.A. is dump, and I dislike the Amercan South, and Texas. But what's so special about that? Everyone has their preferences.
  7. Oh of course. The IOC is one of the most corrupt, self grandiose, self important, idiotic, asshole organizations in the world.
  8. My God, people here have definite personality problems. Nasty.
  9. What differencemdoes it make? I lived in L.A. for more than a decade. I know the city very well.
  10. And yes, Atlanta had nothing over Toronto other than bribes and Coke.
  11. Atlanta just disgusted me and I'm not a great fan of L.A. What an ugly awful place it was to host the games in. But they had no choice. It was that or no games that year. I also moved to L.A. in 1988. Some of the "look" was even still up around the Coliseum (though trashed). I remember looking around and thinking "I can't believe they hosted here"
  12. Awww, you weren't alive in '76? I was a kid but I remember seeing Nadia score her perfect 10's. And L.A. '84 is clear as day for me. Anyway, you seem to already know the answers to your own question. You just like arguing.
  13. And in the future, what, France always and forever only bids with Paris?
  14. You just cannot compare Montreal and Los Angeles. Two totally different situations. I'm so sick of this mytholgical aura L.A. '84 has developed since then. It's so overrated.
  15. By the way, what's with the snide comment about Canada. What, you think Canada was some backwater in 1990?
  16. Because I knew they'd be tacky (and they were). God forbid Texas ever gets a games.
  17. First of all, the IOC wouldn't be choosing between Paris and Lyon. Lyon could be perfectly capable of hosting. And Barcelona was kind of a nothing city until they hosted in 1992. 1992 is what made Barcelona what it is today. Lyon beats Los Angeles. San Francisco beats Lyon.
  18. I disagree about France. Lyon could be a host city. Just like Milan could be in Italy. Or Barcelona was for Spain. It doesn't have to be the capital.
  19. I definitely would have been on the Toronto side. I remeber when I picked up the paper and saw that Atlanta had won to host 1996, I was like, "are you kidding me?" I threw the paper down on the table in disgust. I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a mistake, and it was.
  20. Man you love to argue. In 1976 the games were very different. Corporate sponsorship didn't play the role then that it did in 1984.
  21. I didn't say it was "wrong", don't put words in my mouth I did not utter. I just said, if it could happen that way for the USA, it could have happened for that way for Canada too. The "population size" thing is something that get's bandied about by people the likes of which post here, but I have never heard or read of an IOC president or member saying that.
