  1. http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/index.ssf/2018/04/snazzy_redesign_for_hayward_fi.html (This is a link to one of Ken Goe's articles discussing capacity)
  2. Do you have evidence stating the render is for 30,000? This has been a point of contention in the media ever since the release of this rendering...
  3. So this happened... http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/index.ssf/2018/04/university_of_oregon_rolls_out.html Thing is, this is what the organizers say is the complete 12,500-seat POST-Worlds Hayward Field. What the organizers say is that they’ll put temporary bleachers in the gap in the northern part of the stadium. So that phallic errrrrrrrrrrr tower is a 9 story “admin and communications” building and observation deck... if that gap is it, the bleachers would have to be three times the height of that tower. A later interview “clarified” that they’d also stuff seats into the rest of
  4. This is already settled. I believe the pundits who surmised that Amazon already has a “general” metro in mind, but the bidding war will sweeten whatever incentives... ...that metro Washington can offer it. That’s to say the people who hacked Amazon and noticed a lot of inquiries being made about Arlington County VA leaked the info and all.
  5. I can’t be nice here. For the close, it looked like there were more athletes than attendees. Not that NBC let’s the IOC hurt for cash. BTW, I think this is more a reflection on the IOC instead of SK.
  6. http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/index.ssf/2017/09/hayward_field_renovation_pushe.html#incart_river_home So now I wonder who Phil Knight is trying to squeeze for cash. The stink is starting to take hold. The 2020 Olympic Trials were already relocated. So if this actually gets done... ...oy vey... ...you're probably making the 2021 season (Ducks, Pre, NCAA) the shakedown cruise.
  7. What's this about "walking back" statements? Don't trust Trump worth a damn. And the movement needs to ask and answer a lot of questions now.
  8. http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/index.ssf/2017/02/friday_morning_news_notes_link_52.html Kind of a catch-all article from the main T&F reporter at the Oregonian... who does mention that the target for beginning construction is now a year behind schedule and fundraising isn't going as well as expected.
  9. There's a website that has popped up. Part of me wanted to put it in the forum with serious 2028 bids just for contrast, but because I can't quite bring myself to take it anywhere near seriously, this thread seems appropriate. http://oregon2028.com/
  10. I don't think you need any more translation than you already got. Mark Geiger refereed the Mexico v Panama semifinal, he called a late handball (Mexico had already had one dubious PK call to get through their quarterfinal against Costa Rica)... and later, Geiger admitted he made a mistake. All sorts of heck broke loose in Atlanta around that call, so lots of hurt feelings. Geiger also admitted to not necessarily refereeing in MLS the way he does in CONCACAF and mentioned something about "entertainment value" when approaching MLS games. He's been assigned to Seattle v Vancouver this weekend,
  11. http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/index.ssf/2015/05/sunday_morning_news_notes_link_20.html#incart_related_stories Eugene 2021 organizers want to host the 2020 Olympic Trials AFTER renovations are complete. Certainly a good test event.
  12. http://www.oregonlive.com/trackandfield/index.ssf/2015/05/wednesday_morning_news_notes_l_20.html Renovation will, at this point, result in 14,000 permanent seats and 16,000 temporary for the Worlds. Meanwhile, already 2 years into a 7-year commitment hosting the NCAA championships, Vin Lananna will seek a permanent commitment.
  13. Direct flight from New York to Eugene for this? Oh dear. It's simple. Fly to Portland. Take MAX downtown to Union Station. Take Amtrak to Eugene. Don't start spending the airlines' money for them. Fair bet Amtrak can add trains for this event more easily than airlines can add inventory. This is Nike's baby. Phil Knight will probably take care of stadium improvements and TEMPORARY expansion himself. Where there's generally a lot of bleachers, I'm guessing mostly a temporary concrete structure. I would expect an improvement and expansion of the main stands. The historic east side stand probab
  14. What the... (WHOOSH!) That was interesting. I was last seen conceding 2021 to Europe. There seems to be an emerging "apologies for choosing Qatar" effect.
