  1. basically the problem it seems rob is the Availability of Land to keep a Club's Stadium in the same district of London ? that is understandable . I can see where Fifa is desiring the 2012 stadium simply because it can fit with what they require on the outside of the stadium if the stands are kept up until 2018 . Clubs in England it would seem are not building to host the World Cup but to just attend to their needs which of course are longer term. Jim jones
  2. so why is it that this proposed TottenHam Stadium is shoe horned into a piece of Land Rob . Is this not the problem Emirates seems to have that may indeed ironically leave one of Englands Newest stadiums off the list ? John Obi Mikel (Nigeria), John Terry, Joseph Yobo (Nigeria), Kanu (Nigeria) being bid ambassadors for England 2018 should be good after all England 2018 was to get in touch with Dr Amous Adamu a nigerian somehow to prevent his vote going to Australia to eliminate a 2018 commonwealth games potential candidate city .

  3. Off topic MOD . I am crying racism here LOL. Jim jones
  4. Except for a Scottish Nut case who has his nose in the business of a games that does not concern the Children of the Sheep. Athlete Baw Haw Haw Haw Haw . The only workout he does is running his mouth about things he is complete ignorant to IE what is an IAAF class one certified facility and how a stadium gets that stamp from the IAAF. Jim jones
  5. Back to the topic Child of the Sheep LOL Jim jones
  6. you never get the point . no one goes out that says Gee I am going to risk putting an athlete in a situation that is rare in the the course of his or her's career . that is the bottom line . Yeah you can have some record broke or you can have Ron Clarke in the process . Unless your athlete has run mountain races or long durations which would not be the case of a sprinter then they would pass on voting to put a sprinter in that position . Jamaica , Trinidad and Tobago, Cuba , St Kitts and other Caribbean Nations would vote for a Toronto or Lima simply on the basis of avoiding bogota. Jim jo
  7. It is hard adapt to altitude that quickly especially if you are from a Caribbean Island living at sea level most of your life. Broken Records at the pan am games might be restricted to Pan Am Games Records which are generally far off the mark of World Records. The competition is generally not there as American's send a C team of Athletes and many teams send B grade competitors who are young and in development. You are not going to have a Usian Bolt running at altitude in Bogota or even any of the Semi finalists of the 2012 olympics or the 2016 olympics for the Americas. Those people qualify at
  8. Ron Clarke a very good high ranking middle distance runner from Australia nearly died running at altitude in Mexico city 68' . no major problems ? Gee i think nearly killing a man is a major problem. Jim jones
  9. Man Again you have half a clue . Sprinters at high altitude you don't have much of an effect on them as durations are short for their events but who would want to risk a career on what the unknown is for each individual. The Jamiacans are unlikely to say . Hey lets travel 6000 miles to live in an athletes village a mile high in mid european Athletics Season risking our pay checks on the Pro Circuit in Europe or even our entire careers . We are talking sprinters who generally can command appearance and endorsement fees into the 100's of thousands and millions . Lima or Toronto would get those v
  10. Well apparently the screaming infant knows Capitalization and upper case letters . Do you know what I actually mean by Children of the sheep ? There is not defining it because I invented the term . Jim jones
  11. So where you do think a federation or the athletes should go on Delhi 2010? The Child of the Sheep would say oh it should not have been awarded to anyone without pale white skin but the fact remains it has been awarded simply because you cannot deny the Largest Democracy in the World the Games in 2010 while China was awarded the only games that really amount to anything two years prior being the 2008 SOG's . The Federation would look totally out of touch with the rest of the world including the Only Games that matter celebrating the youth of the world VS the festival that celebrates our commo
  12. Racism against the UK ? Gosh you are the people who cornered the market on racism IE the BNP. Jim Jones
  13. Well take care of your own backyard and staging on the Commonwealth Games afterall the last time Rob Maxwell and a Japanese mobster were the White Knights Edinburgh had to go to trying to salvage those games . Jim jones
