  1. If you think for one second that Paris, or any other European capital for that matter, could be ‘enticed’ into bidding again after a fourth upset then you are living in cloud cuckoo land! Most posters on this MB have perfectly well understood from the word ‘go’ that what is at stake today for the IOC is the very survival of the SOGs in Europe. The IOC knows, as it’s been said and repeated here, that LA would bid again in 2028 or even 2032. Paris wouldn’t. And probably neither would any other European A lister. Any other aspect of the bid is just hot air…..
  2. How's the gas leak? http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/07/us/california-governor-declares-emergency-over-los-angeles-gas-leak.html?_r=0 https://hereandnow.wbur.org/2016/01/20/la-gas-leak-legislation
  3. ....which is another way of saying "I know where the bodies are buried" !!
  4. I hasn't and it won't. You should also wait for next week's final results after the second round.......
  5. French Sunday paper publishes 1998 internal UEFA memo to FIFA which includes reference to payment agreement between Platini and FIFA. http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/35020279 http://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1032301/hope-for-platini-but-new-us-department-of-justice-indictment-keeps-heat-on-leading-fifa-officials So they knew about that agreement all the time! Hard cheese Splatter! And better luck next time you son of a b****!!!
  6. 23h56 Paris time: Hollande has just declared a state of emergency and the closure of all borders.
  7. They may perhaps have nothing to prove to the French but they certainly have a lot to prove to any other potential bidders if they don't want the recent debacle to happen again....
  8. Not so much 'pessimism' as 'realism'. The French remember what happened on the three previous occasions and they trust the members of the IOC only as far as they can throw 'em! It's for the IOC to now show a clean pair of hands and show that they have - finally - got their act together and rooted out all the rotten wood....
  9. American buffoons like you need to (re)read your history and remember that if it hadn't been for France you Yanks would all be speaking English!!
  10. That was only one missed penalty. In 2011 we stopped counting after 10 missed penalties!!
  11. Agreed. Commiseration to our Scottish friends who deserved to win. We in France know how you feel. Joubert was the ref who presided over that final game back in 2011 which was so heavily rigged against us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7C6bTHyC0U
  12. O'Brien suspended for a week. http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/rugby-union/34511312 Serves him right......
  13. Plucky bunch those Georgians. They certainly didn't go down without a fight......
  14. Marseille is just a 3 hour train (railroad) ride from Paris using the TGV. It was the 2013 European capital of culture. It's also an incredibly warm and friendly city......that's if you don't get lost in the Quartiers Nord!
  15. "Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano"
  16. If you don't give us the games, Teddy Riner will come looking for you!! #JeReveDesJeux
  17. Lol! Are you reading this Jim Sloman and Rod Sheard?
  18. Lol! Ask the reporters from Channel Four's "Dispatches".......
  19. .......at the British taxpayer's expense. Apparently.
  20. ".........redacted on grounds of national security...." !!!! Looooooooooool!! :lol: :lol: What a complete shambles. Lamine Diack must be soooo kicking himself!
  21. Very interesting. That poster + the message you posted on another thread gives us a unique insight into what a potential Toronto 2024 strategy will be to counter the Paris bid. Thanks for that. Just hope it doesn't come back to bite you in the a*** in a future Toronto bid......
