  1. A competition that's nearly over for submissions... this is to say that the deadline is only just over 36 hours away, at 1PM LONDON TIME ON SATURDAY. I will start the vote on the evening of Monday 2 January so we can all recover from the New Year weekend. I won't refuse any entries that come on the Sunday because I'm not a monster.
  2. The original greatest of all time, I can't imagine what it would've been like to see him play at the time - especially when he emerged in 1958. Been expecting it for a while, but at least he got through the World Cup and got to see that final. RIP
  3. Ok everyone, a quick pre-Christmas stocktake. @fatixxx @Sir Rols @Scotguy II @Victorian have all entered both their logos, thank you! @Bear has entered a logo for Reykjavik, so Nairobi is still waiting for you. @Aussie bum (Davey) & @JDCLauron have both entered just for Nairobi so far, so Reykjavik waits for you. I will @ everyone in my list again: @paul @Glacib @Lord David @R__ @thatsnotmypuppy @mr.bernham @woohooitsme83 @VIK @baron-pierreIV @JMarkSnow2012 @nzl @Utkarsh Verma @Athensfan @Citius Altius Fortius @Olympian1010 @TorchbearerSydney @JO2024 @Nacholympic @aismanggo @Anthony @Jon Will Chambers @DannyelBrazil @ScoBit @Palette86 @Fiorenzo @pcutone @Olympic Fan Darcy @Athens 2004 forever @ulu @Qss212 @PikyoK This is the final @ I will do. As we have a field of 5/6 logos already, I will warn everyone that this year, I will NOT be extending the comp beyond my usual accepting of anything that comes in before the vote starts. So the deadline, the hard deadline, is 1pm London time on SATURDAY 31 DECEMBER. I intend to start the winter vote on 2 January, so that little extra period will only apply to New Year's Day. Thank you
  4. Yeah, everyone is pleased for Messi - nobody deserves it more. Remember if you, or anyone else, wants to try to make up for defeat in Qatar by bringing some glory home (or if you're Argentine, to continue the celebration), you can enter this very competition! Entries still very open
  5. @paul @JDCLauron @Glacib @Lord David @R__ @thatsnotmypuppy @mr.bernham @woohooitsme83 @VIK @baron-pierreIV @JMarkSnow2012 @nzl @Utkarsh Verma @Athensfan @Citius Altius Fortius @Olympian1010 @TorchbearerSydney @JO2024 @Nacholympic @aismanggo @Anthony @Jon Will Chambers @DannyelBrazil @ScoBit @Palette86 @Fiorenzo @pcutone @Olympic Fan Darcy @Athens 2004 forever @ulu @Qss212 @Bear@PikyoK @Mr Tickle @fatixxx @Scotguy II @Sir Rols @Victorian have all put in a logo for each city. @Bear (I mistakenly put you in the general list, and I can't delete @s for some reason) has done one for Reykjavik but not Nairobi, while @Aussie bum has done the opposite, Nairobi but no Reykjavik yet. Here ends the stocktake (nearly) halfway through December. Let's see some new entrants!
  6. It's the kind of thing Bach would do as well. Reykjavik won the election fair and square, but you do have a kindred spirit in @Sir Rols who suggested putting Trojena in the election in the first place! I wonder if we'll see any logos from you in the comp, we're always looking for new entrants
  7. Quoting these, because although we've had a good number of posts, it would be nice to see more new entrants! Not forgetting @Mr Tickle who I couldn't get on those. Does that give a notification to everyone I @, when it's in a quote? Rols?
  8. Still wish England/UK had gone for this instead of Euro 28...I mean we've just effectively had a men's Euro very recently so it's not as exciting a prospect as a full World Cup would be (although good to host it all, especially for Wales, Ireland and NI) - especially off the back of the women's Euro. I know which of the two Euro tournaments gave a better impression of England as well - on and off the pitch...
  9. I've done Frankfurt - Munich in one go by ICE, they're very nice trains but it still felt looong. RR is obviously further still...I guess Munich would want to host what it had in the European Championships & spread the rest out all over Bavaria & the rest of southern Germany? Maybe even get Salzburg & northern Switzerland involved to spread the love/cost & prove co-hosting can work?
  10. Interesting... it's certainly one way of solving the athletics stadium problem! Munich to Rhine Ruhr is a long way though, would it work? The first truly national scale Olympics?
  11. Bumping again, both in the hope of attracting more entrants and reminding them & everyone (although I should've done this on the right day, Saturday) that there's 3 weeks left to submit. That's plenty of time, but it'll pass quicker than you think
  12. Oh well. Come on Morocco, this time for Africa! Talking of... https://www.gamesbids.com/forums/topic/34349-16th-annual-gamesbids-olympic-logo-competition-logo-submissions
  13. I mean it doesn't change the fact of this being a monumentally daft idea but is it actually any of the IOC's business? It's an Asian Games event organised by the OCA, if they want to be completely insane do the IOC have any way to stop them?
  14. Those Nigerian princes, what will they think of next Btw, anyone know what's happened to Daveypodmore? He was the only one of last year's set who didn't have an @ come up...
  15. That's a new angle... make it fit with the German timeline to say to Munich 'vote yes, you're guaranteed '. Between Munich, Sapporo and SLC, do we have the potential beginnings of our "rotation pool"?
  16. Some actual Olympic bid news - you know, the thing the board's for - has happened, so this is a good time to bump the thread
  17. Award 2032 in 2021, then wait until probably 2025 to award 2030...ok Reading between the lines, I strongly suspect they're going to use the coming couple of years to come up with a rotation pool to announce all from 2030-whenever the pool runs out in one go. I'm not sure why they'd mention that if that wasn't a fairly serious plan.
  18. Not often you see a clean sheet in a shoot out. Good to see someone unexpected get through, and I wouldn't want to play them if I was any other team - their fans are special. ...are they really gonna be denied yet again if they have another bid?
  19. The shootout was terrible... was hoping Japan would win too, Croatia are really quite dull, as good as Modric is.
  20. There was me thinking I was the only one providing Eurovision references to the thread Anyway, been meaning to do this for days now - the @s from the start of last year's comp, just to alert anyone else. Some of these will have been alerted already, because I'm just copying from last year's, but there's nothing wrong with extra reminding: @paul @JDCLauron @Glacib @Scotguy II @Lord David @R__ @thatsnotmypuppy @mr.bernham @woohooitsme83 @VIK @baron-pierreIV @JMarkSnow2012 @nzl @Utkarsh Verma @Athensfan @Citius Altius Fortius @Olympian1010 @TorchbearerSydney @Sir Rols @AustralianFan @JO2024 @Nacholympic @aismanggo @Anthony @Jon Will Chambers @Victorian @DannyelBrazil @ScoBit @Palette86 @cfm Jeremie @Fiorenzo @pcutone @Olympic Fan Darcy @Athens 2004 forever Also it's a useful chance for a bump
