Quaker2001 Posted September 23, 2016 Report Share Posted September 23, 2016 10 minutes ago, FYI said: What are you trying to say here? The Canadians on here would vehemently say otherwise. The "America has hosted too often" argument. Gets a little weaker with each passing Olympics. Of course there were other factors involved.. New York's underwhelming bid for 2012 and the revenue deal for 2016. But again, as the theory goes drop the New York or Chicago bids into the 1996 bid and do they win? Probably they do. Drop Atlanta's 1996 bid into the 2012 race following a U.S.-hosted Olympics in `96 (not that Atlanta would be in that position anyway) and they probably get laughed out of the room. And good for what Canadians here would say. Doesn't mean it's wrong. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
