  1. agreed on both. I live in Brisbane and work in the CBD. I would love to discuss the bid from a locals perspective, but when i do post, it just gets drowned out by the long form articles. The long form articles are great as a historical record but it really stifles conversation
  2. in my day job i'm a lawyer and in the past ive dealt with domain name disputes. i can tell you know auDA will roll over and turn over any .com.au domains with a quick lawyers letter, especilly when someone has 200 domains. one company i acted for had the aussie distribution rights for a productm and someone registed <producttrademark>.com.au with a competing product on it - AuDA assigned that to us within 10 days
  3. here is a youtube video from channel 10 news in 2008 talking about bidding for 2024. here is another from 2017. Another from 2019. Brisbane bidding for the games was no secret - it's been in the news and on the TV. if anyone was suprised by the bid, they were not paying attention given Bach has met with the Premier multiple times, including in brisbane
  4. did you look at the feasibility doc? the public approvals are all listed there. I'm also old enough to remember the bid process in the lead up to the awarding of Sydney 2000 in 1992/3. there was a lot of people who were extremely against the bid, given both Brisbane and Melbourne had bid for previous games and been rejected. to give you an idea of the popularity of the games come the opening ceremony, this is from a newspaper article talking about the ceremony's tv ratings The Friday night broadcast of the ceremony saw ratings peak at 72 in Sydney and 71 in Melbourne,
  5. yep. I'm starting to think that brisbane 2032 could be the most important games in a century. Brisbane is really the first smaller city to host the games in the new norm era, after LA & Paris. It’s also no secret that the games are struggling to find host cities, for a myriad of reasons including economic viability and public support. Should Brisbane 2032 be successful it will show the IOC and smaller cities that the games can be in regional cities, therefore opening up a lot more hosting opportunities and cities that considered themselves too small may now see that they could h
  6. to those coming in here and having a moan about Brisbane 2032: look at this from the IOC's point of view you have a country with a successful history of hosting international sporting events - at one point they hosted what the IOC president called "the best games ever", along with sports such as the commonwealth games, and other various events. this city that is putting there hand up has support from all 3 levels of government, large public support and no need for a referendum. Approx 80% of the venues already exist 11 years out. your also struggling for hosts
  7. no. they lowered the bar to allow anyone to host. its called the new norm...
  8. ‘An opportunity for Qld’: SEQ must build legacy if Games bid successful, Olympics boss says credit: brisbane times By Tony Moore March 19, 2021 — 5.45pm In the lead-up to the 2032 Olympic Games, national and international sporting bodies should base themselves in south-east Queensland, the preferred host bidder, Australia’s Olympics boss said during a visit to Brisbane on Friday. The idea was one of 20 economic and cultural potential legacies of the 2032 Games proposed by the Committee for Brisbane, if the region was confirmed as the host o
  9. it would be madness to not keep him on BOGOG - his experiance and connections alone would be worth it
  10. really interesting stuff. thanks for sharing that
  11. brisbane arena is the name they are using for what is being called in the press here "Brisbane Live" - the concert venue built over the roma street rail yards
  12. the proposal is that the new privately funded brisbane live venue will have a temp pool installed for the swimming. Nissan Arena has a capacity of 5000 in basketball / netball config. i am unsure how many they can reclaim by adding additonal seats but i suspect it is at a minimum 500 it's not out of the realms of possibility that the north Ipswich reserve will get an upgrade anyway to NRL standard, should the Ipswich bid to join the NRL is sucessful over the redcliffe dolphins bid, which should be announced later this year
  13. i suspect the event will have national artists - sydney 2000 had John Farnham (Lives in melbourne), Human Nature (Sydney), Vanessa Amorossi (Melbourne), Tina Arena (Melbourne) and Pee Wee Ferris (Sydney) amongst others
  14. Brisbane's busways were constructed with the ability to be turned into segregated tramways in the future so this is not out of the relams of possibility
  15. jeez thats a bit harsh. what i would say is that Brisbane 2032 Coates' pet project - the same way Barcelona was Samaranch's.
