  1. The headline, then the titles and the people chosen...
  2. We should plan a big GamesBids Forum meeting in Rio in the weekend (Aug 13th.) I'll be there in Rio and many of us will be there too. What you guys think? We could go to some bar, to have some pastel and beer! It would be amazing.
  3. I'll be there!!! Basketball in Olympic Park and Volleyball in Maracanazinho with a special GB Forums friend! That will be amazing! Really excited here!
  4. Brazilian bureaucracy and judiciary system... When you realize how hard is to surpass all phases in a tender, you starts to understand will works always starts delayed. They are already happening in the ready venues, like World League Finals in Maracanazinho right now. As explained a lot of times here... Brazilian bureaucracy to start works is terrible. You can have tons of sues in justice not to mention, companies must fullfill lots of stupid requirements... About Mr. Coates, it was commented here in Brazil by people inside the Olympic Movement, that it was a political speech, indeed to avoid Nuzman (Brazilian NOC President) to gain status inside the IOC. Curiously few months later, Mr. Coates come to Rio, saw all the works and said he was wrong. (Of course, no big media on his second speech).
  5. Not proud of it, but this is how things works here.
  6. Canadians being silly about medal table in PanAms... LOL

      Victor, PanAms was major when Globo or Band broadcasted it. Nowadays, nobody does not even know about games. About Canada, As I clearly said, they are caring about Brazil - this is silly.

      Canada must focus in surpass Cuba or be the first at home (by surpassing USA), not caring about Brazil.

      Now Brazil is in third place. But Canada should be worry for USA

      Brazil won't surpass Canada and USA, and probably will stay behind Cuba.

  7. TV Record, the one with rights to broadcast it in open air in Brazil, is showing almost nothing. Globo is showng a 3-minute recap in main news but since Globo does not have rights to show footage, it's a very cold report with few interviews. In fact, few Brazilians realized there are PanAms games under way right now... Maybe Toronto 2015 is one of the less known PanAms ever, at least here in Brazil.
  8. Let's say, I'm in the middle of the hurricane... Sportv confirmed already 16 channels. And ESPN have 4 channels in Brazil. Grupo Globo: Globo, SporTV, SporTV 2, SporTV 3 and SporTV 4, Sportv 5, Sportv 6, Sportv 7, Sportv 8, Sportv 9, Sportv 10, Sportv 11, Sportv 12, Sportv 13, Sportv 14, Sportv 15, Sportv 16. Grupo Band: Band and Band Sports Grupo Record: Record and Record News ESPN: ESPN, ESPN HD, ESPN Brasil and ESPN+ FOX: Fox Sports and Fox Sports 2 Eventually Fox can use "Fox" regular channel to broadcast stuff, but I doubt it. And Globo News can enter live at any moment in case of breaking news and resumés...
  9. The script is ready, of course, however, they are now working on the script assembly. They are thinking about how it will run. They are also studying all viability issues. The team is working on a complicated stadium, which does not have all the necessary structure. It is clear when it was reported the issue of Maracana coverage: the structure must support 120 tons, only supports 80 tons. Pre-production is the hardest part, because they have to think of creative solutions to run the script. From this point that international producers become part of the project.
  10. Somehow, yes, they will do with the Marina the same thing that happened in many countries with soccer stadiums... They will refurbsh and increase the price of the place in name of modernization... (I saw some nice and funny protest from English soccer fans against the increase of ticket prices due stadium modernizations) In the other side, the place do need modernization and refurbshment... I don't understand why can't they negociate a middle-term that could benefit both sides?
  11. Brazilian do the things at the last minute (PanAms, World Cup, Youth Day, UN Environmental Meet) - it's like a national tradition... Why people is still worried? One day before the Opening Ceremony everything will be there, smelling new and shining and few employees will be removing dust from the construction... Nothing new on it.
  12. And in fact, I was happy when Argentina won gold in Football... First gold after 52 (!!!) YEARS!!! - Tired of kicking drunkard, focusing back on Rio Olympic Games threads.

  13. LDOG, Brazil sometimes makes me sad... Argentina always makes you sad. 23 years without any PRO title. SHAME! VERGUENZA!

      *yawns* what nonsense, ofc I celebrated, we won two football olympic golds in my lifetime. yes, not even close to be like a world cup, but I wouldn't trade them for a Copa America to be honest.

    3. DannyelBrazil

      DannyelBrazil

      Olympic Games is an Under 23 title... And as I said before, no Argentine player in albiceleste raising a trophy since 1993.

      And I wouldn't trade any of our 5 World Cups for an Olympic Gold medal or even less, some Copa America...

      Tired of this... Keep trying Argentina, now, busy with Olympic Games threads. Copa America talkings lasted 2 days - too long.

  14. No, we wouldn't, this team of Brazil is a shame... Our worst generation... But, at least our worst generation won some Confederations Cup. What to say about Argentina... Now 23 years without any title... LDOG, Brazil sometimes makes me sad, sometimes makes me happy. Argentina always makes me happy.
  15. Nice! Barrios, try translate it by yourself, Google is doing some weird translations all the time...
  16. LDOG, I saw Brazil won several titles (2 World Cups indeed) during my lifetime, when was your last time? 1993? *still laughing here*

      hahaha, defeated both Brazil and Argentine were...

      5-time World Champions only one of us.

      PS: Soon, it's time to celebrate Bolivia 6 - 1 Argentina.

      Germany at least is a world class team.

  17. I loved the way Copacabana sidewalk pattern in the bottom become Sugarloaf in the top... That was nicd
  18. What a happy ending!!! Congratulations Chile! Time to celebrate it big!!! I can't even feel bad about Brazil. We are witnesses of the worst Brazil's team ever. I'm really worried about World Cup qualifiers. And finally I'm truly happy about Argentina!!! hahahahahahah Now 23 years without any pro title. Since my childhood I didn't see any Argentine player in albiceleste raising a trophy - that's special! #rivalry
  19. Congratulations Argentina national team! Now 23 years without winning any pro Football title! It was amazing Chile, celebrate!

      Only thing that remains of brazilian football, celebrating others' defeats.

      Pretty much true, but, at least I saw Brazil won several titles during my lifetime, your last time? 1993?

      *still laughing*

  20. Defensive? First, you have the right to hate whatever you want (but, I'm glad you liked), and somehow, after all these years, with all respect, I couldn't care less about the opinions here... Even if you hate everything about the games (it's not the case), so far, all the reviews around the internet are great, so, I'm pretty okay with this... This card "the defensive host city member" is so 2008-ish. Don't use it again, it doesn't work anymore. At least with me. This said, I'm also trying to figure out how it is made... As I said, I bet in coil spring and plastic simple mechanism... IMO, it's not anything electronic nor very intricate, indeed, the games message about recycling materials gives us a tip... Your point about 12,000 pieces is perfect. They won't make anything costy and crazy. I didn't watch Glasgow CWG games (not broadcasted here in Brazil) and I don't know what is the Queen's baton... Sorry About Vancouver and Sydney, I'm almost sure this torch does not involve hydraulics...
