  1. Almost one year without vising this website and today after the WC I thought about the Olympics and remembered game bids... I come here just to read athensfans is still spouting the same BS he hid in the past. Pathetic. I still remember when he said WC stadiums would be empty because brazilians had no money to buy the tickets. Actually he was quoting a moronic lawyer from an obscure newspaper. Same crap. Now, the funny part is that this dude worried about how Brazil spends its' money is the same dude that have a sig and username praising the Athens game, the 2nd worse in modern history, trailing only Atlanta 96. But the irony is that Greece still suffering the economic consequences of those Games, because they were a small country that would not be viable hosters. Athens 2004 cost ~7% of Greece's annual GDP at the time. Rio 2016 wont even reach the 1% mark, lol. btw, back in 1999, years prior to the games, 18% of greeks households had not running water. Around 9% of all households (and 25% of low-income households) lacked direct access to a bath or shower (Eurostat, 1998). Talk about hipocrisy... PS: Millions of american have not access to running water right now. Anyways, this has nothing to do with the Olympics. It would be a valid discussion prior for the citizens pior to the bid campaign now that discussion doesn't have a place. Bringing things like this to a thread called "Rio-2016 news" just show either ignorance or downright trolling. Too bad gamesbids lacks moderation to keep this trolling controlled. Since there are no moderators this pathetic dude can still explicit his personal frustrations on this forum on daily basis.
  2. He's crack and cocaine user or a crack user? I know the Active Ingredient is the same, but snorting cocaine is not as bad as smoking Crack. So... If he's only addicted to cocaine I can see him turning things around but crack is too much. I don't know anyone that recovered from crack addiction. And I know a lot of cases. Unfortunately it's a huge problem in Brazil. Oh, I just google'd the news about him a bit before posting. Something sounds fishy. I doubt he was a crack addict. He seems normal or maybe it was a long time ago. Seriously. You cannot hide a Crack addiction. Simply impossible. Unless even fucking crack is better in Canada. If that's the case I'm moving to Canada ASAP.
  3. Hey Scotties, what's up? Does anyone know where that thread about Scott's independence went? This forum really confuses me, I can't find it. I just realized one more thing that makes me love Scotland and I want to post there.
  4. Canadians or others? I immensely doubt the Americans top swimmers will participate in the pan ams. they never do. Athletics, then, it's even worse. Not even some Caribbean nations send their best athletes. Hopefully I'm wrong.
  5. Your argument, as I understood, is: USA vs. England drew good ratings not because of real football followers but because it was an game involving US and A. So you expanded by asking the ratings from Algéria vs. Slovenia to compare with the US and A game so you could prove your point. So firstly I let you know I doubt such game was broadcast in the US, therefore we can't know the real ratings, and secondly I tried to explain to you that even tho, most likely, a Slovenia match would have shitty ratings in the US it still wouldn't make your point valid because it would also have shitty ratings in every corner of Planet Earth. Even in Brazil, and we all know Brazilians love football. In conclusion: that isn't a good argument at all. Anyways, I believe you are underrating real Football growth in the US. IIRC it's the most practiced sport in schools in the US and with the growing concern over safety of the practitioners of other "violent" sports that are popular in the US, real football will only grow. Thx sawker mons. We love ya.
  6. Come on, Mr.Quaker. Don't act so condescend with me. I know NFL is huge in the US and A. They wouldn't lose much, I meant, because the niche group that loves 'soccer' usually don't like 'football'. I mean: girls, latinos, europeans descendants... Do you have numbers showing the overlap in the fanbases is bigger than I thought? FIFA would need to avoid having USA games on a Sunday, tho.
  7. It had better rantings the NBA too, but since you're canadian I thought you'd value Stanley Cup more so my point would be better understood. Now about Slovenia - Algeria. Did they broadcast that game to the US? That wouldn't have great ratings in no part of the globe outside of Slovenia/Slovakia (are they rivals? SImilar name, so I'll assume they were once connected but a trivial problem the brother countries separed and now they hate eachother with passion ) and Algeria. Such a game would be on premium cable in most part of the world.
  8. Hahaha. Ok! That sounded more Argentinian to me. We are good again.
  9. How many millions of people are you discounting? Do you realize that you're discounting an US population that would bigger than the majority of the countries in the World? How about the womans? They are more than 50% of the country, aren't they? Millions of girls love the real football in the US. Btw, the ENgland vs. USA game on the last World Cup drew much better rantings than the Stanley Cup finals average.
  10. Compared to WC? Yes. See the IOC executives crying because the WC would affect their event. You're are from Canada so your insult doesn't surprise me that much. And people say I'm too aggressive here. If I reported all the insults ignorant users threw at me, you'd be all banned. But I don't like to resort to undemocratic solutions. I'll respect your right to lack proper manners, Mr. Intoronto. Chicago was also much stronger than Rio, if you read the technical report you'd know. rolleyes emoticon.gif Technical reports means very little nowadays. WTF is Mayne-Nicholls? I meant the newspaper. The royal press still crying. They absolutely can. Now about the NFL: I don't think fox would lose much in the ratings. Anyways, if the contract says nothing about the date where the WC should take place (and I doubt FIFA would allow this) then they can only cry. What a stupid writer. Is he seriously comparing a fucking kids tournament to the greatest sportive event on the World? lol. U17 tournaments always have empty seats. It's an amateur tournament that only hardcore fans care, and most hardcore fans are only hardcore about their clubs, not NTs. So tickets are usually worth very little or just given for free. btw, I think I just met Captain Obvious: "The FIFA under-17 World Cup will include plenty of future stars – but they aren’t stars yet. Drop a tournament with a bunch of unrecognizable names into pretty much any land, and this is what you are likely to get, a tough sale." OH REALLY????? Oh really? OMG! What the **** is his point? If he knows a kids tournament is a tough sale, then why is he bringing this up as an argument against the Arab WC?
  11. 1 - Nope because I already posted here you people are wrong. Continental rotation ended years ago. and yeh, 2030 = Argeguai. Just like 2022 was going to Qatar no matter what and I wrote this here before. You people simply don't know how FIFA works. 2 - It's funny how the Internet works. Can you prove that Qatar bribed FIFA executives? Nope, right? But yeh, it's a "fact" they bribed FIFA executives. They most likely did, just like other Bidding nations - most likely - did as well.
  12. your NT sucks, that's a fact. 22 years without winning **** = sucking. lol Now I'm sure you're from somewhere else that registered here just to debate with Danny. Yeh dude, I surely meant being disrespectful was an argentinian common trait. I wasn't even defended you argies few posts back. Sure. I didn't meant we were talking about football. An argentinian would know how to properly discuss football without crying. You're an Euro/Yankee that know Messi and that's all. Saying Messi is the best ever already threw me off. Coming from an Argentinian that was really strange since Messi until a couple of years ago was criticized a lot by Argentinians and every argentinian I know don't put Messi ahead of Maradona. The older ones don't even put him over guys like Di Stéfano. So yeh, now that I know you're not Argentinian: bye bye. I wont reply to ya no more. Olympicsfan, my post was to lcog. I even liked your post. That's how we debate football here in the 3rd world.
  13. "I know that (though we deserved to pass them in 2006). It's just that these two users brought up Argentina's title-drought as some kind of argument to prove... something which isn't clear to me." The point is that Argentina's football went downhill after Maradona. Your NT sucks and having been sucking for a long long time. To olympicsfan97, thx. You wanted to debate football, here I'm. It is bloody football, mate. Not chess, simply Football. Now I really doubt you're Argentine since you're crying because of that. ps: Argentina wont get past the Quarter Finals. I'd bet you on that.
  14. "yeah, I know they're friendlies." LOL, if you this why mention? Usually friendlies mean absolutely nothing. Unless is a prep game before a big competition. And messi is already the best ever? lol. He isn't better than Di Stefano, haha. Let alone Pelé.
