  1. A co-worker emailed and explained that a new government is elected and they are going cut back on programs? I think?
  2. The cost is the cancer of the games. Many who don't care about the Olympics are now speaking up and just saying "we don't want the Olympics" So for an event that claims to be the biggest event in the world. Many don't want and many more don't care for it. But does the IOC need the US to save the games again (LA 1984) and we could see 1979 again. The Olympic world is very different today than yesteryear. The IOC fail many and I do mean many, many times to face this issue (or crises). This is only the beginning.
  3. Its very sad to see what happen to the might Motor City. Off to St Louis.
  4. Why do you think I'm saying Detriot. Because I'm right now in Detriot NOW! Want to come for a vist Baron?
  5. Why not just leave it in London everything is already there. And besides London is safer than LA. It truly is!
  6. But at least Detriot try, NYC eastern time zone so is Detriot.
  7. So by saying what you just said why would any city want the Olympics? The money would come from the Feds to help the city all of the old sites would torn down and state of the art sites would go up. The poor can't afford to go to the Olympics any way. Their are many cities in the US almost bankrupt. Then the USA is not a safe bet for the IOC.
  8. This would be the best test for the Olympics. Consider this the IOC always say the “legacy of the Olympics” well think of it new buildings it would clean up the city. Besides you say bail out remember the US auto industry. I think it should be serious looked at.
  9. Name one thing that other cities in the USA have. That Detroit doesn’t have. 1 Crime 2. Corruption 3. Roads falling a part It would force the federal government to invest it would be great for Detroit Detroit 2024

  11. Now this is a city that needs a boost and having the Olympics would bring back and clean up the city.
  12. I think Detriot would make a great city to bid for 2024.
  13. Sure its low ratings because they have yet to show the olympics. many co workers just stop watching because of the coverage. So to all who think the olympics are the sporting event, think again. NBC is awful!
  14. For us at Gamesbid its something to rest of the planet, its the do and see thing. But next week no one will care.
  15. With the injured Canadian hockey player, I think the owner is not very happy. Leading , to that the NHL will have second thoughts about 2018. Mr Bettman not very impressed of course its very early but to fly out to Korea in a nation that could care less about hockey.
  16. Is NBC going to show the Olympics or in six minutes we are going to a commercial break.
  17. Lets see what would be the Pros and the Cons? Pros: no more power for the IOC they would have to do something.
  18. I read this one http://www.mndaily.com/opinion/columns/2014/02/09/find-permanent-sites-olympics
  19. I just read that many in Norway don't want 2022. The IOC better take note or this could be "the shape of thins to come" IOC prez has try to court Rome and Paris into bidding but many are getting fed up with the cost. " the cost is the cancer of the games"
  20. Here's NBC coverage 6 minutes of sports, five minutes of interviews and 12 minutes of commercials NBC is pathetic!
  21. Rumor has that the National Hockey League is non committed to send its players in 2018. To be fair I think the NHL is the pro league that suspends its season for the Olympics. This will be interesting to see, I think the IOC will have to cut a check to NHL secretly for loss of revenue, if the NHL is going to be part of the Olympics.
  22. Is their a web site that Coomonwealth reports can be down loaded?
