  1. It looks as if Barcelona is full steam ahead for 2022 according to the mayor, Xavier Trias. However, his statements only a day after Madrid failed to win the 2020 bid won't be making Barcelona any friends in Spain at least... http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2013/09/09/barcelona/1378727392.html Essentially he said that, in Spain, only Barcelona has the class to compete against the likes of Istanbul and Tokyo. And people here said that Madrid was arrogant. I feel that's pretty rich coming from a city that is relying on mountains that aren't really even near Barcelona to make it's winter bid v
  2. What is with this urge to rub it in and be cruel about Madrid's loss. It really says a lot about you. I haven't seen arrogance, I've seen stubbornness and an unwillingness to back down against the barrage of "reasons Madrid's bid sucks" from most of the anglo commentators on this forum. What else do you expect from Spanish people? Not to support their bid? God you have got to be kidding me... I'll take a Mediterranean attitude any day over the sarcasm and viciousness of my own countrymen that you and Baron display, FYI. What a couple of grade A pricks.
  3. **** off please. I don't want to hear it from you. Your especially vicious attitude towards Madrid's bid for months and now calling "Castillians" stubborn like you even understand anything about Spain that you haven't parroted from some wikipedia article or another member is way too much for me right now.
  4. Tough luck for Madrid. I was so excited about the idea of a games there. Three rejections in a row from the IOC...pretty clear message I guess I just hope the bloodsuckers from Barcelona don't get their 2022 Winter Games or that'll be it for this century for the rest of Spain. I'm glad Tokyo got the Games though.
  5. In the same post you just said you have no doubt that Madrid could be a "fantastic Olympic host" and then went on to ask why should the IOC "suffer an austere Olympics" It really seems to me that you don't like the Madrid bid and you don't like seeing people supporting it on here. What else do you expect from Madrid supporters other than support? Please get over yourself and go post on Istabul's thread if all you care to contribute here are constant attacks on Madrid and the members supporting the bid. Your point that you don't think Madrid should host because of the economic crisis has be
  6. Congrats? I guess now that your point has been so snidely made we can all rest easy that this important issue was laid to rest..
  7. I found a live stream for all you other Americans!! It's BBC Sport http://www.vipbox.tv/watch/63204/1/olympics-opening-ceremony-countdown-live-stream-online.html
  8. You're so eloquent FYI... I almost want Madrid to win just to see you eat your words. Fact is Madrid has a solid plan; the only negatives, and granted they're big, are the economy and the pull of Tokyo and Istanbul's candidacies. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
  9. I have objectivity. Cheap insults, however, are not objective. But I digress, the issue is resolved BTW what other language do you speak besides Spanish and English?
  10. I don't think an Istanbul vote takes away Europe's chances for 2024 at all. It's not exactly seen as a European city compared to Paris, Berlin or Rome. I also don't think it's seen as an Asian city, despite its efforts to be thought of as " straddling two continents". But the fact that it would decrease the likelihood of another frontier games is all the more reason why IOC representatives from possible frontier cities would not want to vote for it. Y para ti Shrek. Este foro es para hablar de las candidaturas de una manera respetuosa y no insultante. Madrid tiene tanto derecho de estar
  11. Oh shut up, that's so not called for. I was doing some thinking about IOC voting politics, and I feel that voting Madrid is the best thing that every IOC voter from outside of Europe with a horse in the 2024 race could do for their own chances. A Madrid Olympics would boost the chances of N. America, Africa, and Asia by getting the european cities out of the next race. Any possible South African bid gets a boost because Istanbul wouldn't have won and taken the "frontier" games role for the second olympics in a row. If any Asian countries are thinking of bidding (I can't think of any to
  12. I don't think Madrid will bid again for a long long time if they don't win this time and I want to see a Madrid olympics in my lifetime. So I want Madrid to win more than ever for mainly selfish reasons lol. Istanbul's turn will come very soon and they'll bid again if they don't get it, and Tokyo's too, being one of few Asian cities capable of hosting the games in the near future. Madrid has too much European competition in Berlin, Paris, Rome, Moscow etc. for it to be certain that they could win after this go. ¡Vamos Madrid sé que tú puedes!
  13. Thank god they're going to change the spanish outfits according to the russian firm "Bosco Sport". Although, I still would rather a Spanish firm designed the uniforms, they could use the help especially with the economic crisis. http://elpais.com/elpais/2012/05/11/gente/1336731865_788452.html (article in spanish)
  14. Spain could host the Olympics more than successfully and has a strong chance of winning for 2020. Doha, on the other hand, is definitely not going to be chosen no matter how much money they can throw at the IOC. Stay classy...
  15. lol that one picture posted wayy bigger than it showed up on the preview, I'm sorry guys! haha baron there's nothing wrong with a few pictures to adds some color to all the dry paragraphs of debates
  16. Madrid is, for me at least, one of the most beautiful cities I've been in, which include London, Paris, Barcelona, and Prague. There is so much natural beauty in both its urban parks (Retiro, Oeste) and peripheral parks (Casa de Campo, Madrid Rio(Manzanares)) as well as the surrounding vistas and areas (la sierra) A litle bit of iconic Madrid...
