  1. how is 70,000 HALF of 80,000? Gillette Stadium holds 70,000 and can EASILY be Upgraded Did you not Read the List of Stadiums? And the Superbowl being held in 18 days at the Mercedes Superdome holds 4,000 more people then Gillette .. 4,000 Rio 88,000 London 80,000 Beijing 90,000 (population!) Athens 70,000 what same!? Sydney - insane LOL Atlanta 85,000 Anyways all I was saying is its doable... Not once did I ever say that Gillette should be the Olympic Stadium... I clearly stated that Boston has Infrastructure that is comprable to other cities and has the inovation and economy to u
  2. No Actually that was Scrapped EARLY ON in THE BID! Check Again... And the Point was it's in 5 different Burroughs AND ANOTHER STATE!
  3. INSANE... HOW CAN A VOTED ON CANDIDATE CITY THAT PLACES IN A RUNNER UP POSITION AFTER THREE ROUNDS OF BALLOTED ELECTIONS NOT HAVE BID DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO THE IOC... YOUR INSANE! I HAVE ONLY SAID IT 10 TIMES! ... NEW YORK CITY - THIRD RUNNER UP - 2012 ACTUAL LOCATION NEW JERSEY! MADE IT TO THE SHORT LIST MADE IT TO THE CANDIDATE LIST MADE IT THROUGH THE EVALUATION PROCESS IN 4th PLACE RIO 8TH PLACE LONDON 3RD SUBMITTED CANDIDICY APPLICATIONS! MADE IT TO FINAL ROUND OF VOTING LONDON 1ST PARIS 2ND MADRID 3RD NYC 4TH MOSCOW 5TH RIO DID NOT MAKE THE FINAL ROUND! THAT IS THE COMP
  4. And I have already been through a successful international bid process, I am not here for your coaching.... Especially when it lacks any comprehension of viable information relayed back to you in whats considered a 2 way conversation :-)
  5. I'll say it again... your doing nothing for me. I am not part of this committee... much deeper... have a great night. I'm DONE Those are Villages :-) Not Greater Boston ummm haven't we talked about that!?
  6. and you guys need to keep better track of who said what to who because your throwing facts and **** at me to quotes I did not say :-)
  7. They Didn't That's crazy since they were Runners up in the Candidate Final Rounds! ok so allowed in Chicago but not in Boston... because your map includes no neighborhoods of Boston Proper ;-)
  8. Newbie haha... Only to communicating with uneducated, contradictory statements that carry no merit or really a response to anything I have said.. I am far from a newbie in this life and I have been reading this attack tactic garbage to every person that has submitted a bid potential... my mistake was joining in NEW JERSEY 2012! NEW JERSEY 2012! NEW JERSEY 2012!
  9. Excuse me but I don't need to name you Winning Cities that was not the argument... The Argument was that COOPERATIVE BIDS and STADIUMS NOT LOCATED IN THE SAME STATE! OR the HOST CITY are ALLOWED.. . Any city that makes it past any round of voting, including the first round has been approved of these stated above, they do not make it to the short list or to a candidate bid without that.. LIKE NEW YORK CITY 3rd RUNNER UP - NEW JERSEY 2012!
  10. You are so clueless really... Foxboro 2024.. haha So according to you, all the things that are printed in bid documents, delivered to the IOC are lies, incorrect and not accepted.. Got it.. So when NYC Bid for 2012 and was the 3rd runner up there concept was not to have SEVERAL OLYMPIC CLUSTERS SPREAD OUT in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and East RUTHERFORD NEW JERSEY where guess what kids THE OLYMPIC STADIUM would have been in NEW JERSEY.. Meadowlands, Flushing Meadows!? NOT NICE PLACES and NOT CLOSE So its ok for them to use Boroughs but not Boston... and it's ok for them to use old exi
  11. Seriously who are you? Where were you educated!? The area of Boston city proper alone is 90 square miles, 50 sq miles land and 40 water. and that is JUST boston the PROPER meaning just the inner city LOL.. Boston is Commonwealth city so therefor its considered Greater Boston that is the city, and that would be the location of the games... and that would be the area of the Bid... That is 4,674 Square Miles ! Rio - largest city in Brazil - 485 square miles London - 606 sq miles - BY YOUR RULES otherwise they wouldnt have won the bid right? because "The Greater London Urban Area was not
  12. Semantics is all They Have... If you look at every response they pick and chose what they want to pick apart and they clearly love to design rules specific to Boston Biding because none of them exist... This will be my last response to this ridiculous back and fourth rather than having a real conversation about an amazing oportunity for any city or person involved whos willing to work hard and make it happen.. the IOC allows COOPERATIVE HOST CITY BIDS - Example: previous potential applicants and future applicant cities WASHINGTON, DC & BALTIMORE, MD (46 Miles Apart) which is the sa
  13. And I'll Repeat Again... Those Venues were examples of existing infrastructure .. the first 2 were viable for Opening/Closing LOL... Oh Required comes from you once again... where did I say that any of our locations would be used "AS IS"... Man you are so not worth it. I need to restrain my passion sometimes but Ignorance is not how you debate... Boston is just as Viable if not more then any of the other US Cities. And where we lack in some areas we make up with it in being a Sports & Culture Meca the Sports Title Capital and the Home to the Oldest Marathon with the First Women's O
  14. HAHA I love when people pick and choose... You missed the entire point of course... more then have the host cities have utilized EXISTING STRUCTURES... Therefore we can do the same and remodel the point is we have the space & the locations.. And Gillette is infact nominated for both those superbowls L has been chosen now.. And Yes... they have a Commuter Train Line... something other cities would build :-) The others were venues that can be utilized not specific to sport or ceremonie but proof of existing structures... if a Baseball Stadium can accommodate 40,000+ people why c
  15. I have been on here for a very long time, long before Boston Considered. I have had my own dreams of that... My Comments come from me personally and my experience and research, Obviously people who are passionate and knowledgeable on the Topic are going to post... And I don't necessarily disagree with you being skeptical, it's a major major endeavor from all sides for ANY City or Country and Skeptics are going to be Bostons largest problem. I personally am 100,000% for this and will be behind it (and I crack up every time I see that Boston or someone in Boston thought we were going to bid
  16. The Last 5 Gay Games have had more Athletes then the Olympics by 1,000 or more Athletes and that's not Including the multiple thousand people in the cultural events. And between 2 and 5 more Sports. Gay Games - (35 Sports) Cologne - 11,000 Chicago - 12,500 Sydney - 11,000 Amsterdam - 13,038 NYC - 11,200 Vancouver - 8,000 San Fran - 5,000 San Fran - 1,500 *Games #1 Olympics - (29-34 Sports) London - 10,500 Beijing - 10,900 Athina - 10,500 Sydney - 10,700 Atlanta - 10,300 Barcelona - 9,300 Before this 6,000 or Less
  17. So because you quote with no knowledge that we don't have a suitable location for the main stadium that makes it fact?... first lets get the distance rule out of the way... There is no distance rule! It's quite obvious it should be in the center of it all, but clearly not required. and 9 times out of 10 a new Neighborhood is created because it can't be in the city itself.. 1992 and 2010 were widely dispersed. Torino had locations in 4 different parts of the country, Rio is split into four clusters rather then concentrated in a single area. and Nagano had events that were 43 MILES from the
  18. In terms of the number of Participants they are the same and Gay Games has more Cultural Participants then the Olympics, in terms of Sports and Venues they are nearly the Same the Olympics obviously encompasses a greater spectrum of events but again same total athletes. The infrastructure has been well thought out and researched for an event this large multiple times and we already hold events with more people.. And the Gay Games puts on their event without the need to build all the extra venues because it's already available... The Olympics is clearly something that can't compare in that its
  19. 90% of the Olympic Host Cities that have to build all of their venues is because 1) they don't have any sports in their country, especially to the size of 10,000 participants at once. and 2) they need the infrastructure to begin with. Almost all US Candidate Cities already have the Venues in place and just need upgrades and the rest is to make it Olympic Grandeur not because they don't have the Capacity... Boston has far more Capacity then 75% of any major city in the US. Boston is a Sports Meca & Capital and Home to the OLDEST and FIRST Modern Day Marathon. Every Elite Runner in the World
  20. It's an Exploratory Committee we have not announced to the media until be have some more concrete reports completed. And why wouldn't the person in charge of the Social Media for Boston-2024 not have a screen name called Boston-2024 LOL... And from personal experience as a Board Member of Bostons Bid for the 2014 Gay Games which is they LARGEST Sporting and Cultural Event in the world to and above par to the Olympics, this is an extremely feasible opportunity for Boston. Boston couldn't be a better fit for the Summer Olympics, and all of the cities and surrounding Sports Teams & Owners a
