    Ukraine Sets focus On Future Olympic Games Bid

    So looks like this Zelenskiy is still doing stand-up comedy! At least Bubka is trying to keep his big lofty idea more down to earth lol.
  2. Chicago should demand their $100 million back!
  3. So let’s see. Up to nine votes total. That means Rio definitely would’ve been voted off in the first ballot. F@cking astounding.

    Shanghai 2032

    Roger, just consider the source. Enuff said. It’s the same one who kept saying that the IOC should just call up a certain central Asian country to “save” the IOC’s butt for 2026. And the same one who suggests a Summer Olympics in “January”.
  5. IDK about that - it’s been really nice without you know who.
  6. FYI

    Were the bookies right on 2026?

    I guess not. Cuz didn’t the bookies say Stockholm? At least that’s what was being discussed over in the “who will win, & what will be the vote difference” thread. As far as future betting, isn’t there always something to bet on, regardless of the process? Especially since the rest of the IOC members are supposedly going to still be filled in with the new process.
  7. ^As already has been mentioned here before, & not by me, but Coates has an axe to grind against Melbourne. So that’s why they’re currently not on the table, cuz Coates has gone out of his way to push Melbourne aside for his own personal vendetta during his re-election campaign for AOC president. Again, if you claim that Brisbane isn’t going to win anyway, then all your accusations are really a moot point.
  8. Perhaps you’re confused, cuz we never argued this over & over again. It was Beijing over Almaty, remember? Which, if we’re going to be this schoolyard game, you got WRONG, & I got right. And so f’n what if John Coates is “praising” the Brisbane bid (& Bach is just being diplomatic, not necessarily praising anything). Cuz remind how well that worked out for Gunilla Lindberg & Stockholm 2026. Right, look in the mirror. Cuz you’re seeing what you want to see. Aren’t you the one that keeps saying that Brisbane won’t win anyway, so WTF is your problem then.
  9. You need to tell this to Darcy then, since it very clear that he enjoys to ‘misrepresent’ my posts, even though it’s obvious that I’m not the only one with this opinion. Maybe he’s ‘obscessed’ with me or something for whatever his reasons.
  10. That was an interesting read. Damn the welfare of the athletes (which is what the IOC always rants about) & spectators as long as they can get every bit of revenue they can for their Olympic ‘investment’. Do-haha! Exactly, the date argument was merely a smokescreen to deny Doha-ha for other real issues that the IOC couldn’t just come right out & say to them (depsite of what any other ‘naive’ bias bid supporter around here wants to say about it).
  11. Talk about biting your nose off to spite your face type of mentality. That’s hardly ever a winning strategy, though.
  12. It’s not just a matter of size, but also of perception, though. St. Louis is also a metro area of 3 million, but can anyone here see them hosting again in the 21st Century? Or Minneapolis/St. Paul with a metro area of almost 4 million? People here still balked about Boston 2024 & their greater metro population is well over 5 million, comparable to Sydney & Melbourne.
  13. The IOC is probably keen on returning to Australia at some point. But are they really “that keen” on Brisbane, though (other than John Coates, of course)? Sydney 2000 Athens 2004 Beijing 2008 London 2012 Rio 2016 Tokyo 2020 Paris 2024 Los Angeles 2028 Brisbane 2032 or 2036? (Especially for a city that requires a lot of work which would then seem to go against the “New Norm”)? That’s like Germany putting up Leipzig or the U.S. going with Kansas City or Minneapolis. I know many outside the U.S. here were flabbergasted when the USOC originally chose Boston for their 2024 bid. I know the IOC is in a very senstative spot these days, as far as bid cities are concerned, but it’s not like they’ve totally done away with their old ways of thinking that much, if last Monday’s election of Milan for 2026 is any indication.
  14. Okay, so it’s settled then, (west) Westphalia for 2032, & (SE) Queensland for 2036 then! And for winter, SLC 2030 & Sapporo 2034. That would take care of the IOC for most of the 2030’s, as well!
