  1. As much as I am disappointed about this result, as much I dont want too see a German bid for Summer Games. They are far too big nowadays.
  2. According to an article on sueddeutsche.de the IOC would love to go back to Norway. The article quotes FIS-President Gian Franco Kasper. He says that Oslo is the strongest candidate.
  3. Everywhere are the comments so negative. I will never experience Olympic Games in my country.
  4. Munichs referendum is this Sunday. But if Oslo annouces its interest, without having the gouvermental support und withdrawls later, Norway can say goodbye to Olympic Games for the next decades.
  5. Now that Oslo is in the race, I think we have a (new) frontrunner, even if Munich bids. The Norwegians are much more popluar compared to the Germans and Bach can not lobby for Munich anymore.
  6. Munich is probably out as a host for the semis and final, since the President of the DFB has announced today, that Germany will bid for the Euro 2024.
  7. A majority of the members of the Bavarian Parliament has said today, they will support the bid, if the referedum will be positive. Only the Greens have said, they are against a possible bid.
  8. Because the Bavarians will elect a new parliament on September, 15th and the Germans will elect a new parliament (Bundestag) on September, 22nd. Although the two biggest parties in Germany will support a new bid, it is possible, that the Greens will become a member of a coalition government after the elections in Bavaria and for the Bundestag. The Greens were against Munichs bid 2018 and I dont see them supporting a new bid for Winter Games.
  9. The Olympic Park needs money to repair something or to modernize the swimming pool. Every intra-structure needs money. But apart from that Munich had the best concept for the stadium, arena and village after the Games. The Park was frequently visited and it belongs to the most visited Olympic Parks in history. 2022 wouldn't be such a problem, since the majority of arenas are already in place.
  10. I dont see Olympic Summer Games in Germany. The Games are bigger now. Germany has a very good sports infra-structure does not need desperately new arenas or stadiums. Furthermore Munich is still paying the bill of the 72 Games. The Olympic Park needs millions of Euros every year and the City can not afford it. Berlin has already a huge debt and it wont get much public support, since Berliners are very lazy. I do support Munich 2022!
  11. If you are really from Germany, you should know, that your sentence in capitals does not fit to 2012.
  12. Let 2004 repeat! Seriously, so I have only three matches to support "my" team...
  13. A German delegation was at Auschwitz today. An English, Dutch and Italian delegation will follow.
  14. Again the Netherlands? They had the Euro just in 2000. If England doesn't bid because of 1996 and Germany doesn't bid because of 1988, why should the Dutch bid?
  15. Maybe I sound arrogant, but I hate these 2-, 3- or 4-nations-bids. That means, that the teams are automatically qualified for the group stage. We see it this year and we have seen it in 2008, there are quite tough groups and there weak groups. The Ukrainian team is a joke and the Swiss/Austrian teams have been a joke. Let Russia, Turkey, France, England, Spain, Italy and Germany host the Euro and not these tiny nations like Austria or Switzerland or unsuccessful nations like Poland and Ukraine.
  16. Germany will lose against Portugal and the Netherlands. Spain and Italy will be the other semifinalists. The Dutch will lift the trophy.
  17. France will host the EURO 2016 because of Platini! Not because it had a good bid.
  19. Well, maybe Sweden is more successful in Curling or Ice Hockey than Switzerland, but they would die for Curling and Ice Hockey. There would be not a much difference.
  20. PC has won, because they presented a bid for third time in a row and it has won, because a few Korean companies are top sponsors of the IOC. Sweden can not offer that. Therefore I find it not correct to compare Ă–stersund with PC.
