  1. Buji all the way ! I'm Christian but I have strong muslim connections in my family. I've never seen Bibi as the warmonger that some people want him to be. Peace is possible with Bibi too...I'm part muslim but my boyfriend's a French Jew. So if it's Buji, cool as I love him (dont ask me why). If it's Bibi well, I like him too. Only Israel is capable of giving us a political choice with cool people.
  2. Just a trompe l'oeil. A temporary illusion. As much as I like Britain, their medal count will fall dramatically in Rio in comparison to London. I'm talking abot long-time efforts, lasting results, and a real commitment for athletes and sport.
  3. A much funnier position is to be outside of it all anyway. The IOC's much funnier to control from the inside, but without getting involved in those ruinous, always uncertain olympic bids. Controlled from the inside by our IOC members, and decide the fate of other olympic aspirants. JC Killy was one who understood that, shame he isn't a member anymore, but he did a great job. France might get something out of it, and there's the pleasure to see them all fight for something that only one will get...And the power to decide. I'd rather focus on the athletes and on giving them the financial ways to be stronger and stronger. No one truly cares about where the games are held anymore, and most people even forget. It may be something that the older generations have trouble understanding, but among the younger globalized ones, no one really cares whether the games are held in Africa, America or Asia: all of them are in the world anyway. A powerful nation at the olympics, that's the real power.
  4. You should've lost faith in the IOC in 2005 already. Most French people have. But well, if you believe in it that much you should get a list ready by 2017, one with all of your favorite places to get drinks & forget...
  5. Thanks Mainad. Believe it or not - and even I was surprised to feel so sad about all this - but we've all been particularly shocked by the deaths of those 2 young guys in such dreadful circumstances. Not to forget the amazing & brave F.Arthaud. 2 young athletes who also happened to be amazing human beings, talented, and struck by destiny. Life's really ugly sometimes. The INSEP, a training center which is a kind of goldmine where all the biggest hopes of French sport go, paid them a heartbreaking tribute today. Many of them were in tears and it should remind us that we still have great athletes. Great athletes that us French people should also support for the moving tribute they gave to their lost friends. Among them, and as a way to try to look ahead: Loic Pietri (judo) Eloyse Lesueur (long jump) Romain Magula (swimming) Giacomo Perez Dortona (swimming) We share their pain and will be backing this new generation of athletes.
  6. Looked for it in French as the emotion's greater but I didn't find it. A golden girl in every sense of the way...I'm very saddened. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6qkb_l4rbE
  7. He's alive, he was part of the show, but he wasn't in the helicopter.
  8. As for Florence Arthaud, I knew her less because she wasn't an athlete of my generation but I know her as the woman who sailed by herself in 1990 and beat all of the men she was opposed to. The first one who showed a woman could beat men in this discipline. We've lost 3 spearheads of the French sport.
  9. Swimming's one my favorite sport and Camille was the kind of swimmer I like. Natural, devoted to her sport, the absolute opposite of a manners and malice.
  10. I was shocked to learn this, this morning, especially as a sport fan. When I heard Alexis Vastine & Florence Arthaud were among the victim I had a shock but when they named Camille Muffat it sounded incredible. Not only Alexis Vastine was a handsome, talened boxer, but he was a very funny and sensitive guy.
  11. NKM isn't in favor, neither are many UMP members. She's neutral and "cautious": http://www.lejdd.fr/Politique/JO-2024-a-Paris-Hidalgo-partante-NKM-prudente-641674 You're forgetting many political sides in your vision by the way, and many people. The Front National is opposedt the games, they represent 30% of the French electorate right now, and are about to squash all of the traditional parties in the upcoming departmental elections. Many in the far-left parties and the greens are against as well. But you have a majority of people in favor of the games at the moment - see, I give you that. But on the moment all these people I mentioned will start getting interested in the olympic games topic, figures could dramatically invert. Not many people will want to be involved in the defeat that Paris will face, should a bid come true.
  12. That's all up to the pro-Games...But my humble opinion is that you should include Flo
  13. It's not negativity, it's a lack of will, and no thirst for the games anymore (for those of the French who don't want a bid of course). There's no crying either, we just don't want any bid nor the games...Apart from that, we're really fine thank you To be honest, I think it's also about time to stop talking about Chirac ? He wasn't the most clever man ever, that's a fact, but it's only one factor among many, I could give 4 names of 4 IOC members and their nationalities, (we have them ), who promised they would vote for Paris and weirdly changed their votes on the voting day. A friend of mine working at L'Equipe confirmed that to me. So Paris would've lost anway. Chirac or not. As far as I'm concerned, I would love to see Africa be awarded its first games...It's Africa's time and they're very capable of doing it. haha thumbs up
  14. Awesome radio speech (that I could've written) by French sport journalist Pascal Praud. He's known by all the French and operates on the biggest national radio station (RTL) so it's great to see such a wise & relevant message reaching such a large audience. For the non French-speakers: In a nicely written chronicle, he points out that intending to present a bid isn't serious. That we all know well that 4 billions will turn into 10 in the end, and that the way the IOC works is way too shadowy and suspicious to spend money and energy on a bid. The Singapore walloping is also recalled, underlying that everything had been done to win back then, to end in a defeat. I would've added that we have even less chances than in 2012, but that's an awesome job which could hopefully open some of our compatriots' eyes.
  15. Pour dire ça t'as vraiment rien compris à ce que j'ai dit...Laisse tomber.
  16. I'm acknowledging those supports Rob, and believe me, I saw them. I just have a different opinion. Being a very new British resident (and loving it) I have demonstrations of affection and sympathy everyday, not just about the olympics. Now I'm not sure the French generally deserve it . Good job.
  17. Haha go for it mate. F*** the naive idiots is more relevant. The idiots who will once more put a whole country to shame and give it another international humiliation. You'll make a fool of yourself just like the bunch of amateurs in Paris who will be part of it. Like many French people you don't sound like you even have a clear idea of the the world we live in. You're stuck within your own borders and your idea that your country is the best Just take a look at your speech..."Boston's weak...Africa's not ready..." We're the best and the others are sh*t right? That's definitely the way you're gonna win... We'll see you when your teeth are shattered, and your hopes as well.
  18. Will all respect, I do no really get the way you see things either (but we dont have to agree, do we). No, I do not think that the 2024 games will return once more to Europe after the IOC already chose to return to Europe immediately after Athens 04' and Beijing 08', leaving other continents aside. Taking heed of this fact, no, I do not think that following London 12', Rio 16', and Tokyo 22', the IOC will once more choose to get back to Europe, and once more push aside North America or Africa. I do not think that the 2024 games will go to a city that's 200 miles away (and 2 hours by train) from the place that hosted them in 2012. On the other hand, I do think that there's a real appeal in making the first African games and that the United States can really play their card too. My points may not sound logical or relevant to you, but they are obvious to me. That's what I think though. For all that, yes, the competition will be tougher than in 2012; and for people in our country with no memory and naive enough to use the argument "it'll be our 4th one so this time...We're finally gonna get it!!" which was something that was already said in Singapore back in 2005, is just lamentable and dispiriting. But I can show them places in Paris selling whips and handcuffs if humiliation's really what they're into...
  19. Incorrigible, naive, stupid...So they're doing it again, eh ?...Words aren't sufficient to qualfy this irresponsible move and that masquerade in an even tougher 2024 competition. It seems like politicians, who know nothing about sport, do not learn from the past and make decisions in complete ignorance. 2024 will never go to Paris. Maybe it's time for a reminder...But no, these people's level of idiocy is such that they won't take heed of warnings anyway. Go ahead ! http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3d5_paris-2012-pari-perdu_news
  20. He's absolutely right actually. London already got it in 2012 when Athens had hosted in 2004. After a round of London-Rio-Tokyo, and if there's the choice between going back to Europe or finally go to the US 28 years after Atlanta 96, it's not excessive to say the US has an advantage. At least, it's definitely not worth a facepalm...Or maybe the idea of Boston winning thrills you so much, you don't even want to believe in it. I hardly believe that such a seemingly expert eye on olympism like yours doesn't see how big your chances are. (now, there's Africa, they'll probably give you a much tougher time than Europeans but that's another thing).
  21. Usually they burn UK/US/Israeli flags...It gives them a little change once in a while ! We have the support of non-radical, tolerant muslims who do not find the cover to be "hateful" and who, like us, believe in freedom to criticize religions. There's nothing we'll yield to defend our values, freedom, democracy, refusal of backward treatments of women, acts of barbarity against sexual / religious / ethnic minorities. We do not regret those "demonstrations" made by those people without any ability to think. People with a tribal attitude, a level of knowledge equalling 0 and deficient brains with nothing else but their religious monomania, and their stubborn hatred. We're delighted by it. Also, congratulations to the Belgian forces for shooting 2 scums linked with the Charlie attacks, and arresting a third one before they commit an attack. We'll keep publishing whatever we want without anything being dictated to us, and if one or some of them feels like threatening our values again or our Jewish compatriots, they should try and dare. They'll taste some of this, like the parasite that attacked the kosher supermarket. We're ready now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKCvq1ltRIM
