  1. First, the Copa Sudamericana. Now, defeating UC at their home... closer to the Double Championship. Thanks Universidad de Chile for everthing!

      felicidades universidad de chile! :D

  2. It seems the announcment of Poland withdrawing was from a TVP fake account on Facebook. The TVP said that they have not announced nothing officialy yet.
  3. Nice logo! IMHO, Rosario would be a much better option than La Plata, at least about what the city can offer...
  4. San José or Panamá would be good choices for 2023... Central America must host someday...
  5. Today, President Piñera announced the winner of the contest for the Citizens' Park that will surround the National Stadium. It is supposed that most of the works will be done by 2014 for the ODESUR Games and totally for the 2019 PanAm if we bid. Here is the video
  6. The only good thing about Chile in the past two years, now was screwed again
  7. The match against Uruguay was disgraceful. First, five players were expelled for drinking before the training... and now we have lost also the goalkeeper and the defenders. Borghi is doing such a terrible job. We can't have 10 goals against! Bielsa, please come back!
  8. Uruguay 4-0 Chile. I think we should move to OFC to stop these disgraceful moments

      one blowout loss to the defending world cup bronze medalist is not bad. It happens ask Turkey.

      Being defeated by Venezuela; then 4-1 to Argentina and then 4-0 to Uruguay. And playing terrible... that's the problem.

      Oh I didn't realize the previous results.

  9. Three times in fact. 1975 was cancelled after the coup d'etat of 1973. As Ikarus said, the government was more worried about killing people. And I don't think they were able to paint in a few months all the National Stadium and clean all the blood on the walls. 1987 was cancelled after the March 1985 earthquake that destroyed a lot of places in and around Santiago. And the Second PanAm Winter Games were scheduled for 1995 in Santiago, but cancelled after Las Leñas 1991 was a big failure. About La Plata... Current government is much more capable of hosting the Games now than in the Menem er
  10. Here is a 2010 video I found with the venues of the 2014 ODESUR Games. Some of the venues are being renovated already, one example is the Court Central (here is how it looks now). http://www.3tv.cl/index.php?m=video&v=16329 The venues of the 2014 ODESUR Games will probably be the base of the Santiago bid.
  11. It's not an official rotation policy. San Antonio (USA) bidded for 2007 and Lima and Bogotá bidded for 2015.
  12. 1975 was two years after the coup d'etat. 1987 was two years after a big earthquake.
  13. It seems it's on: Santiago is bidding for the 2019 PanAm. The president of the COCh is lobbying in Guadalajara and taking note about the organization. http://diario.latercera.com/2011/10/15/01/contenido/deportes/4-87078-9-ilic-negocia-los-panamericanos-de-2019-para-chile.shtml http://diario.latercera.com/2011/10/16/01/contenido/deportes/4-87206-9-los-millones-que-necesita-chile--para-ser-sede-panamericana.shtml
  14. Yesterday night, at the broadcast of the OC, the reporter said that the venues for the 2014 ODESUR Games in Santiago are being built with Pan American standards.
  15. Argentina 4-1 Chile Borghi SHOULD resign. The new president of the Federation and the coach are doing exactly what Chile did in the worst time of its history as a team. I can't believe... Bielsa did so many things and in less than a year we are playing worst than ever. And all of this is President Piñera's fault.
  16. Happy birthday Chile!

      Felicitaciones al pueblo hermano de Chile!

  17. Chile must change. No more repression, no more government stupidity. ¡Educación pública, libre y gratis para todos los chilenos!

  18. Sure, because Latin America is a Far Eastern region...
  19. I think that Argentina dreaming about hosting the World Cup at this moment is a reaaaally bad joke. They have just hosted the worst Copa América in the past years... the stadiums weren't the problems: it was the organization. They couldn't manage the ticket selling, the press, the accommodations, the broadcasting, etc, etc...
  20. For sure, Chile won't get the Olympics soon, especially considering the small coverage of the winter sports for most of the population. Although the ski centers are less than 40kms away, most of the people of Santiago don't visit them. So, a potential Chilean bid in 2022 would be more about awareness of the city and about the winter sports in the country. In any case, I would say a WOG in Chile would be more interesting. Santiago itself has more population than whole New Zealand and better ski centers. I think South America has a great potential to increase the participation in Winter Olym
  21. This is an interesting piece of news I read today in one of the most influential Chilean magazines. The idea has no more background that any of my GamesBids contest proposal, but this is another step to put the idea of a Santiago Winter Olympic bid in discussion. This week, a simple but striking sticker appeared in several cars in the capital, consisting solely of the Olympic logo and the phrase "Santiago 2022." Behind these mysterious adhesives is the architect Federico Sanchez and the young designer Juan Carlos Labarca, which are fine-tuning the last details to officially launch the cam
  22. Depressed. First, Chile eliminated and then a killing spree in my subway station

  23. I agree that Ollanta Humala would be more like Lula than Chávez. He doesn't have a majority in the Congress to pursue radical reforms so he will be more focused in moderate changes to keep`Peru growing as done in the past years... Ollanta will be working for development of the poorest people, so I think probably a Pan-Am Games won't be his priority. Alan Garcia was the pompous and egocentric guy (have you seen the giant Christ statue that he built without asking?) that would have LOVED to have a PanAm Games... so I am questioning if Lima will finally bid for 2019.
  24. Three halves? What's next? FIFA allowing players to wear burqa? Or be naked? (although I'm not totally against that proposal ^^ ) This is becoming insane... you can't start changing the rules of the sport just because you had the GREAT idea of playing in the middle of the desert...
  25. It's not going to happen... they won't accept a pentanational bid. So, I think Burundi should go on its own instead... after Qatar, they could be the frontrunners.
