Quaker2001 Posted February 1, 2015 Report Share Posted February 1, 2015 It just happens. There are certain things one has absolutely NO control over. Actually, even worse than the NYC 2012 stadium glitch was the San Francisco 2016 stadium snafu when those cursed, inbreeding DeBartolo-York freaks made their announcement just as SF 2016 was presenting at the finals down in Orange County before the USOC. Yes and no. You do have some control over who you're working with and who you're dealing with. The NYC2012 folks had to know they were entering a political tussle when they offered up their West Side plans. They thought they could make it work. They thought wrong. Just like the SF 2016 decided to partner up with the 49ers. We know how that turned out. And no.. SF 2016 was not worse than NYC 2012. Maybe it was to you because it scuppered their bid, but it didn't occur a month before the the bid was put up in front of the IOC. But that's neither here nor there. This is the risk of doing business over an Olympics. Sometimes you'll come up with a great plan with few roadblocks. Other times, that's not possible. Dollars and sense aside, that's why cities aren't eagerly jumping at the chance to bid for an Olympics. Sometimes there's a plan that could make it work. Other times.. no so much, and they don't want to take the risk in the first place. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
