FYI Posted June 24, 2013 Report Share Posted June 24, 2013 What's changing is that the top European candidates are either dropping like flies, or aren't looking very promising due to coming up referendums in those respective communities. It's just a hypothetical. But if the likely candidates for 2022 are gonna be Poland, the Ukraine & Tblisi, heck, I'd even say that Denver, even with their big '72 faux paux, wouldn't be a factor at all. Sure, the USOC seems to be systematic in their 2024 endeavor. But even they have acknowledged that 2024 is no guarantee that they'll bid. As recent as last month, the USOC mentioned that they'd hope to dwindle a field from 10 cities to two or three by November (right around the deadline for 2022 interests). Who's to say that they may not even be happy with those prospects for whatever reasons. The USOC has also mentioned that they're going to gauge the prospective competition for 2024. What if they deem it to be too competitive. It's always mentioned a lot on here that the Summer Games are harder to grasp than the Winter ones bcuz it's much more vying. Not saying it's a forgone conclusion. But obviously, I'm not the only one here that thinks it could still be a plausible scenario, considering all the factors.
