  1. Actually, and this is proof that we are in fact living in a bizarro world.. baron does have a point (sort of). Russia is trying to appeal the ban. So perhaps with the Olympics pushed back a year, it gives them more time to appeal. Obviously they would need to win that appeal, which yes, does seem pretty unlikely
  2. Had to happen. Olympics move a year back and just about everything else needs to get out of their way
  3. Makes sense. Everything moves exactly 1 year minus 1 day. Should be relatively easy to reset
  4. Too early to know what will happen to the world economy. Yes, this has the potential to be a major blow to their finances, but speculation at this point is probably very premature
  5. Would be convenient if they could build the new arena to open in 2028, leave the existing forum up, use both for the Olympics and then demolish the other one (my understanding is that they are NOT at the same location). But sports and construction timetables rarely are that convenient so I doubt it will work out that way
  6. Interesting news regarding a 2028 venue... Clippers Owner Steve Ballmer Agrees to Buy the Forum from MSG for $400M in Cash
  7. Not true. It's a reason, but it's not THE reason. That's the preferred timetable for a lot of sport federations and other entities. It's not mainly for the benefit of American television
  8. And then Paris wouldn't host 100 years after the first time they hosted
  9. Decades from now, there will be a trivia question "what year were the 2020 Olympics held?" Not a trick question, but a very interesting blip on the radar. Notable that they're keeping the 2020 branding. Happy the Olympics will still happen, even if we have to wait another year for it
  10. Why wouldn't it be? The Euro and the Olympics were originally supposed to be in the same year. Now they're still in the same year. Again, remember that the men's tournament is U-23, so it's not the same kind of tournament. The question is what happens to the Women's Euro, which was slated to be held next July/August, so right in the window the Olympics is likely to occupy. That may have to get pushed back to 2022. Helps that the Men's FIFA World Cup isn't until November, so that Summer window is potentially open
  11. UEFA is the least of their concerns. Both events were supposed to be this Summer. And remember the Olympic tournament is primarily U-23. Agreed about the 2022 Winter Olympics. Either Summer 2021 or Summer 2022 puts them in the same proximity time-wise to Beijing. Don't forget the matter of the Paralympics though.
  12. Exactly. All of the qualifying will need to be rescheduled, so many countries and sports federations will need that time to ramp up properly for the Olympics
  13. Probably has to happen during the Summer
