    Why Agenda 2020 Will Fail

    Well with only two cities it has shown that agenda 2020 is a failure, the IOC is totally lost! Now why bother until September, the IOC should call a special meeting and give not award one city 2024 and the other 2028. It is totally stupid to move forward with this, it is now a joke! Some might disagree but I have been right in the past. The cost of the Olympics is still out of control.

    Tokyo 2020 News - General

    It is time that the IOC really address the of cost of the Olympics. Agenda 2020 was a joke! Rome main issue was Euros. Now Tokyo needs cost cutting, well lets see add more sports is that a cost saving. And IOC Prez Bach stated Rome lost a billions, well Rome is up a billions because now they don't have to bid. But I have bin posting cost is the the elephant in the room of the Olympics.

    Olympic Trivia

    What year was the Olympic flag introduce and in what city?
  10. So the IOC puts its best face forward when it comes to the environment. Well Pyeongchang2018 has completed the destruction of the primeval forest which has stood on Mount Gariwang for hundreds of years to make way for the Alpine Downhill ski event which will last for all of three days. The new golf course In Rio millions of Reals for a game no one cares in Brazil. The IOC doesn't care about the environment. O I forgot Beijing, a co worker got back two weeks and well God help us!

    Why Agenda 2020 Will Fail

    One year after Agenda 2020 and what do we have. Only two true cities that can handle the Summer Olympics. Rome could care less about the games the only thing that matter to the Italians is football. Let’s get this over with give it to LA and call it a day. O yeah the IOC needs to be wine and dine first.

    Why Agenda 2020 Will Fail

    The best city is Paris everything is in place. Rome can’t afford it and the Italians don’t want the Olympics. Italy is in tough financial position. Toronto has no main stadium that’s a lot money. Let’s give it to Paris and this ordeal and waste of money is done. Boston mayor was smart he knew what the Host city contract demands were.

    USA 2024

  21. So The IOC Prez wants to do something. All talk just as the IOC is, adding another sport for 2020 and at the same time controling costs. In my opinion we at Gamesbid should run the IOC. All of us have their own thing so we might make the Olympics better or even save them. Here's an idea let Football pro in the Olympics. O yes I forgot FIFA they like to have control.
