Quaker2001 Posted December 22, 2012 Report Share Posted December 22, 2012 Jeff.. Jed...same snake...diff name. Couldn't be bothered how they do. I DON'T follow any of the US pro sports leagues AT ALL. I figured.. too much sweat for your tastes? The problem with Candlestick point has always been the weather. It was especially bad when they played baseball there and all the provisions they had to mitigate the effects of the wind and cold were never really as effective as they thought. So while the Olympic plan was pretty solid from an Olympic standpoint, it was anything but the solution the 49ers were looking for. And I probably don't need to remind you of this, but a lot more Americans follow the NFL on a regular basis than any sport that has even been in the Olympics. I simply said that absence of public information is not an indicator that a bid is not in the works. I also said that if someone wants to keep a bid under wraps until it is advantageous to publicize it, it is possible to do so. So then what is an indicator of when a bid IS in the works? I know it's early in the process, especially that the USOC has made it clear they're not taking phone calls yet, so like you've said, maybe it's not all that surprising we're not hearing much. But again, I know this is the argument we always have.. I don't presume that hearing/seeing nothing means we can't take anything from that or that if a bid is being worked out, the logical explanation is that they don't want anyone to know about it, because I still fail to see why that's supposed to be advantageous.
