  1. Maybe they should just reuse Tokyo 2020ne's. That would be part of being environmentally friendly. lol
  2. Wait a minute, I wouldn't be so quick to declare such a thing just yet! What does our forum "double-fetish expert" have to say about that first.
  3. Wow, so changing it cost even more money. I remember bits & pieces about that, but never really paid too much attention to it at that time. It's things like that where budgets start to get overblown. Makes you ponder how much of that goes on then, especially with the smaller things, but it all adds up in the end.
  4. They're only a thing cause Jacques Rogge (previous IOC president) wanted to leave behind something for his so-called legacy. But what they really are, is just a waste of resources.
  5. Lmfao I think that Baron is right afterall.
  6. OMFG - I've said this here in the past before, but I would've f'n paid to see such a match-up on these boards! It would've made any previous Olympic bid race on these threads PALE in comparison, to say the least! I can just envision the forums here on that very topic now, & the participators, in a 'parallel universe'!!
  7. Oh really? That's interesting then. I thought I had read in the past it was due to cost-cutting because the Tokyo 2020 Olympic budget was beginning to get out of hand. I didn't mind the original design either. Looked very nice in the renders.
  8. Lmao I believe it's called sarcasm. And you missed it.
  9. Wait, what. In what alternate reality was this? Since the IOC automatically awarded Los Angeles the 2028 Olympics in a double-allocation back in 2017.
  10. Only Tokyo Could Pull off These Games? Not Everyone Agrees https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.usnews.com/news/sports/articles/2021-07-25/only-tokyo-could-pull-off-these-games-not-everyone-agrees%3fcontext=amp The first link didn’t work.
  11. You’re posting about the Future Host Commission for the Games of the Olympiad like you always do when someone mentions Brisbane & it’s bid circumstances. You even started out by saying Brisbane, so thank you very much. I knew the moment when someone else mentioned that Brisbane was given the Games ‘underneath the table’ that you’d be coming around spouting otherwise, ‘buddy’.

  13. Can you please stop spamming these threads with all of your confirmation bias BS whenever someone says anything about the real circumstances surrounding the Brisbane 2032 coronation, geez (this is the Tokyo 2020 news thread). Even Annastasia P. knows exactly how it all went down.
  14. This makes much more sense if it were for a Winter Olympic bid, not a summer one (since Kazan is still only half the size of even Brisbane). And even then, the Ural mountains are quite far away from Kazan. So yeah, St. Peterburg is a no-brainer instead.
