Don't believe everything u read...

Well, you guys have just read the Annecy development.

As for the USOC saying "...we will open up the bidding..." Yeah, right.  Like New York has been dreaming about it only for '84 years... And they will have 3 new stadia by 2009-2010, EXCLUDING a projected Olympic stadium: a new Yankee stadium; a new Giants stadium in the Meadowlands -- and the Olympic stadium in waiting at the new Shea-Mets stadium in Queens.  And don't count out the Jets stadium yet... THey also want one of their own.  I just hope the other cities don't take the bait and waste their energy just to play the USOC's dangerous game.  

Yeah, I read that man can't fly in the air...  :rolleyes:

Incidentally, how dead is the New York original Olympic Stadium (the Jets one?).

Wasn't one of the problems just that certain people in power thought things were being too rushed to get it through before last Wednesday.  So, now that they've got more time, can they look at the plans again and try and sort out the finance problems again or is it definately dead now?

If it's dead, presumably there's still a big chunk of downtown New York that's waiting to be redeveloped?  So, what would they do with it now?

Bloomberg is put for reelection in November.  So obviously that takes priority.  With a little more time; things will sort themselves out and you will see NYC run for 2016.  

If NYC survived and came back from 9/11 - what's one Olympic setback?  After all, it's only $$$.
