    Team GB at Rio

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/37140834 How can you disqualify someone with no evidence? These athletes work for 4 years only to get kicked out by an official who thinks he may have seen an infringement but can't prove it. Brazil now make the final. This has tainted the end of these otherwise very successful games for GB.

    CAF encounters "Um Mundo Novo" (A New World)

    Look after yourself, Martin. I would have the same problems with the heat.

    Manchester and London to host Olympic celebrations. Great choice! I will be there in Manchester. These games have been extraordinary for GB. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-37136717

    Athletics @ Rio 2016

    It's 4am here and I just yelled like a lunatic when DaSilva went over. That's what the games are about. Best moment of the games. Congratulations Brazil!
  6. What a vile, unpleasant place this forum has become. Have some of you heard yourselves? You do realise that most of what some of you are displaying here amounts to not much more than bullying, abuse and intimidation? You come here for fun? Grow the hell up!!! It is quite obvious that many of you are enjoying the current situation with Tony. Tony could try the patience of a saint - granted - but I think after a while you have to just ignore those that you conflict with. I came here originally to learn and share thoughts with likeminded people on a common interest. I am sure many of you did the same. However, for some time now this website seems to offer nothing more than just a place to score childish points. I found this website was starting to bring the worst out in me around the time of the 2012 games. I had a realisation back then that I was getting more stressed than fulfilled by the petty nature of Gamesbids. That was a few years back, it has gotten so much worse. I look around now and am so glad to have left when I did. I have not been around these forums much for the last few years, maybe just once every other month to have a brief look around at the news. I can't believe some of the abuse I have been reading. I also can't believe it has been left to fester by the moderators and Rob Livingstone himself. It is tiring to read for me, I can only imagine how frustrating it must be for regular members who are not involved in the bickering. It seems most of the good people who used to post here have abandoned ship leaving only a handful of good people still around from the days when these forums offered a real purpose. It seems that many of the new members have picked up on the negativity of the forums and decided to just run with the theme. It is very obvious when you don't post here regularly and are able to step back and see the bigger picture. You only get one life. Do you really want to spend days of your life just arguing, fighting and bickering over who is right and who is wrong? That being said, something definitely needs to be done to help Tony and subsequently the existing members here who just want to debate Olympic matters. He seems a troubled chap and as someone else said on this forum - not sure who it was - I think Tony will be happier for having his access taken away from him. Even if he doesn't quite realise that himself. It can't be good for a young lads self esteem to be the butt of so much vitriole and ridicule, even if he often provokes it. Can I also say that whilst Tony is English, he does not speak for an entire nation. I would appreciate it if some of you took that on board before abusing an entire nation to score some cheap points. It isn't pleasant to read and says more about you than anything else. I fully expect some retaliative replies to come my way in retaliation to this post . I will not be responding to them. I no longer care for most of the people on this website and therefore do not want to get drawn into a long, childish argument. However, I do think what I have said needed saying, allthough I fully suspect it wll fall on deaf ears. Adios.

    Glasgow - The Verdict

    I loved, and will always love, the London opening ceremony. There were segments i liked more than others. The going out segment was pretty bad but the industrial revolution segment blew me away. I also loved the London bombings tribute. The closing was less of a success for me but still very entertaining. I tend to prefer the structure of an opening ceremony. Closing ceremonies seems a little chaotic in comparison. Manchester did an amazing job considering their budgets. Glasgow seemed like they didnt even bother in comparison. The opening was Ok but the closing was a big mess. Awful.
  8. You got me there. :-) It was hilariously cheesy in parts.
  9. Manchester did not have a huge budget but still managed a show that wowed. I just found the Glasgow closing to be artistically poor. I am all for reducing the ridiculous amounts spent on some opening ceremonies. However, they do have a purpose...and that purpose is to entertain. I wasn't entertained.

    Glasgow - The Verdict

    Pretty much a perfect games in terms of hospitality,crowds,venues and good organisation. The only thing that I can fault were the 2 ceremonies. The opening was below average,but the closing was dire. Full marks for the gay kiss though.
  11. Who said anything about wanting it bigger and more flashy than before? However, this was a closing ceremony of a major sporting event and I would have expected a little more effort into presenting a show. I didn't like the opening ceremony but at least I could appreciate the effort and human spirit of what was presented.
  12. I'm outta here....before I say something I should.
  13. This is absolutely the worst closing ceremony I have ever seen. No effort made whatsoever apart from hiring Kylie. Switching off now, to watch some paint dry.
  14. Kylie love, stick to the dancey stuff. Your voice is far too nasal for the slow songs.
