  1. So it comes down to a final round. In the previous round of bidding, LA and Rome supporters proved resilient, and prevented yet again Paris winning this thing. We ended up with LA of 38.76 per cent, Paris on 47.83 per cent and Rome on 17.39 per cent. So it's Arrivederci Roma (sorry Tony). And, as per IOC protocols, a final attempt to sort this out once and for all. I'll declare the winner next week.
  2. Okay, I guess I started it, so I'll have to see this through. In the initial poll, it was posited that we act like the IOC acts, and see how our intentions might reflect the IOC voting for the 2024 next year. Paris made a strong start, and looked for a long while like winning in one round. But, with a few late day votes to its competitors, it saw its share of the votes slip after the week from an over 50 per cent share to a close, but no cigar, 48.57 per cent share. Budapest, on the other hand, garnered a single vote, and as per IOC procedures, would be eliminated in a proper bid city vote. We'll proceed then as if this has happened. We now have three bidders left to compete for the hosting honours: LA (40 per cent in round one), Paris (48.57 per cent, as mentioned) and Rome (8.57 per cent in round one). We'll give this about another week to see who votes. Let's see where our collective desires would lead us!
  3. Okay, as suggested by alphamale86, let's see how our expectations and opinions stand for the 2024 bidding cities. And, maybe (again as he suggested), we might over the next month replicate the IOC voting procedures and see who we come up with, So, say, in a week's time we might see how the results stand and if no city gets a simple majority for question 1, we will eliminate the lowest scorer and try a second round vote. And so on, until we get a 50 per cent plus majority for a single city. Easy, and entirely non-scientific, but we all like a poll. So which is your pick to win? And who in your heart do you want to win?
