  1. Somehow, I have the feeling in my gut that these games are not going to be as successful as the IOC wishees - which is a polite way of suggesting they could be an unmitigated disaster.

    Maybe it will take a few YOG's for us to get used to them, but it doesn't have the same feel as the real games

    Does any one else feel this way?

    Don't know if I would be supporting my city trying to be host for something nobody cares about

  2. Who do you think will be applying for these games - both in the short-term and long-term (if there is one) - countries and cities that couldn't hope to get the Olympics or cities using this as a stepping stone to the big games - and if you get these games. will it hurt your changes to get the Olympics because your just being greedy as you have already had your games - give someone else a chance?

    I'm also not sure which athletics will attend - in some sports - gymnastics, swimming, diving, etc the athletics in the Olympics can be awfully young - who gets to go to these games?

  3. I think you're dead right. Assuming the no new infrastructure rule doesn't extend to refurb or redevelopment of existing facilities, I'd like to see Sheffield go in for it, preferably with a revampled Don Valley Stadium.

    Do you believe that the IOC would give Sheffield the Youth Olympics of 2010 when London has the 2012 Olympics

    Also, countries have to consider if a "Youth Olympics" would be held against them in the future if they plan a bid for the big games?

  4. When i try to enter to the Off-topic board it says:

    What can i do??.. :help:

    I get the same message

  5. I hate to spoil the party, but I agree with someone who said the NZ is too small and it would cost too much

    Remember, NZ is about 1,000 from Australia - that's a far piece to go for your nearest neighbour (of any size)

    If NZ we faced with a $9B (projected) or $14B (actual) bill that The citizens of Athens/Greece now face, it will have a significant effect on the financial position of the country

    i had read somewhere that NZ was holding itself out as a country that had been able to get is deficit under control and is actually paying off its debt (this could also have been a very old article)

    i would hate to see a country that size take on something like the Olympic Games ( and I see the SOG as being an easier case that the winter one)

    Sorry for a little realism.

    And yes, I have been to NZ, and maybe I don't want to see it spoiled by making all the changes that would be required to hold the Olympics

  6. Here's the message I'm getting:

    It only comes up on Andrew Syd's "Stolen Olympic Torch" and RIOMAN's "Someday will South America host the Olympics?" threads.

    Next time you get this problem make a note of the number of users on GamesBids.com Forums indicated at the bottom of the main page.  I'm not sure what may be causing it but it could be traffic.

    I am still getting this message when I try to open any topic in the "General olympic discussion" section, and its been the same for the last week

    Am I just too impatient, if i leave the screen on for about 30 seconds, it takes it that much longer to go back

  7. This morning I posted a new listing in the Sports Illustration Predictions category of Athens 2004 general - it was a comparison between the Sports illustrated predictions and the USa Today predictions - and now its gone - how and why did it disappear?
