  1. Might it be possible for the following to happen: 12 members of the forum select one of Soarings' ideas and create a short bid proposal - I was thinking the 8 top cities added to Boston, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Houston, and to do a little research covering such areas as: Current venues and possible future venues - pro or college supports Infrastructure in the area including any problems and how they might be addressed The local economy and potential ways to fund any games Political/public opinion i.e. any previous expressions of support or suggestions of bidding. The X Factor - what
  2. and I do think Seattle should be higher up especially as they are in discussion about a future bid albeit with the idea of using Vancouver. After all, they have two major sports complex within 6miles of each other - Husky Stadium and UW facilities, the CenturyLink/Safeco Field area soon to be joined by a NBA/NHL arena. Whilst Husky Stadium has lost its track, the rake of the stands has not changed so a deck arrangement could be used and there is plenty of space to add temporary seating to raise the capacity to the minimum requirement. There are warm up areas a stones throw from the stadium as
  3. I think there needs to be a stronger definition of what is meant by capable. 1) What will they have as the main stadium? 2) What will they do with it afterwards? 3) If they try to go for a compact bid, who will pay for potentially all the new venues? 4) If they use existing facilities like SF how can they convince the IOC that a massively spread out bid will be acceptable? 5) What differences will occur between now and 2017 which are known that could impact on a city's attractiveness i.e. Seattle are building a new NHL/NBA arena? 6) Does the presence of the two big American sports making
  4. but aren't I supposed to be someone else? Surely I must have used this term before? You don't call yourself Gods .... just act like them Again when people comment about me I respond back .... however I have zero interest in discussing any comments I make in relation to the content of the thread.
  5. Surely I must have used this before during my schizophrenic moments? I am sure you can fabricate some so-called evidence if you cannot be bothered to try to look it up.
  6. Do members have the options of deleting their accounts? I did not see any warning if this was not possible when I joined which surely is not correct nor fair
  7. Almost as silly as abusiving someone by suggesting that they were formally banned members. There are more than 7 posters on this forum
  8. Actually I am asking you not to bother to reply my apparently worthless and inconsquential comments. The communications blockade only applies to the following - Athenfan, Quaker2001, PotatoChips, FYI, SirRols, Runningrings and you You've made it clear that everyone has a low opinion of those two, hence your attempt to paint others as them. I am quite happy to converse and discuss with all other members except those blocked who I have listed.
  9. All where you have implied I am someone else who has been banned clearly trying to associate my comments with that/those individuals. I have no interested in PMing anyone I have blocked. I simply request you block me back.
  10. They can choose and waste their time writing a detailed rebuttal. In every case, I will remind them that they are blocked and suggest they don't waste their time, as I will not read a simple word they write. It was you and some of your colleagues who decided to decend into personal attacks. This is the outcome. It is much easy for you to block me so you don't need to read the "inconsequential opinions" of an "ars*hole" who is an "idiot with dementia" and who apparently has "schizophrenic" tendancies (direct quotes of those blocked except the last which is paraphrased) This goes for any thr
  11. With UK games in 2002 and 2014, I can't see a 2022/2026 UK bid as it is too soon and there are more Commonwealth countries able to host the games including the first ever African games. I think the next two bids for 2022 and 2026 will come from Africa, Canada (or North America i.e. the Caribbean) or Singapore before going back to the UK or Australasia in 2030
  12. "In January 2007, The Washington post reported that Redskins owner Daniel Snyder was meeting with Washington, D.C., officials about building a new stadium in order to return the team to the District." http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/10/AR2007011002496.html "In the 2011 offseason, nearly 10,000 seats were removed from the upper deck to reduce capacity to 85,000, making FedExField the second largest venue in the NFL. During the 2012 offseason, 4,000 additional seats were removed to make way for new suites and party decks." http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/FedEx
  13. Sorry why are you replying to my comments? Please block me so we don't have to see each others opinions.
  14. Sadly I think it will be Tokyo as the Istanbul bid is becoming a bit random
