So they won't have the same issue 8 years later? :blink:

I think that even if Krakow didn't do multi-country, then Stockholm or Oslo would still win. I can kind of see now that I might of been a bit over the top with the multi-bid saga. But even if the IOC has no problem with multi-country, Stockholm or Oslo (Still think Stockholm) will win.

That just restates the question without an answer. WHY won't the IOC support a bid with a discipline in another country.

The thing is, is that excluding the Melbourne 1956 Co-Hosting with Stockholm because of circumstances, the Olympics has never been Multi-Country. But with Fifa, The World Cup in 2002 was co-hosted by Japan and South Korea. UEFA has co-hosted Euro's 3 times, Holland and Belgium 2000, Austria and Switzerland 2008 and Poland and Ukraine 2012, which shows they would accept a joint bid again in the future, where the IOC hasn't in the past before. But I suppose, I might of been over the top with the multi-country bid saga with Krakow.

There's the thing.. it very explicitly states that a bid can incorporate a venue from another country is geography or other circumstances make it necessary. Doesn't mean IOC voters have to select the bid, but to push the idea that simply because there's no precedent in terms of a winning Winter bid that it wouldn't happen isn't giving them their due. And as many people have said, this is setting up a lot like the 2020 race where there isn't necessarily 1 compelling candidate and everyone in the field has their flaws and shortcomings

Holland and Belgium 2000,

Uhmmm...one of the sailing finals of Antwerp 1920 (so in 6 years, that's going to be a Centennial), was actually held in Dutch waters -- in the very TWO countries you mention later in your post -- and that is in the Official Records. You think you know everything, Mr. 66-year old???

Her opinion? Sure didn't sound like that to me -- the first time. yeah, calling me a child. Ever heard of "takes one to know one, Pillan"? :P

And frankly, I DON"T care what you think of me.

And UNTIL u showed up...show me WHERE I bashed the Stockholm bid??? S H O W M E!! It's your warped, twisted pro-Swedish slant again working...thinking every one who points out the main weakness of the Swedish bid, is "bashing" it. I guess Krakow's got you shaking in your boots, huh??? Stupid, hysterical responses like yours deserve the same, Pillan.

Way to win friends & influence people for your cause. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Krakow needs an another country to help them. Not sure if that is positive. Sweden will do everything alone. I see a big problem with to countries host the games.

I think distance of about 600km is more of an issue to overcome then a bid with one venue over its borders. However I think Sweden has more of a sell then Poland does a) because of winter tradition B) Sweden is a winter power c) it is the last frontier for winter sports to have not hosted.

I'm just amused by this topic and this forum in general, as usual. I don't get why so many people here take these things so freaking personally (and I don't even mean you in this case). Funny thing.. I went into the Stockholm/Are thread to see the genesis of that discussion. This amuses me (note the date)...

When did I ever bash Sweden? Sweden has done nothing bad towards me; why should I hate her? I am ridiculing the 'Anchorage / Bozeman' dreams of others here who state that a 10-hour flight to Anchorage is just the blink of an eye.

Aside for some posts in that thread from vomit.. I mean gromit (close enough), guess who was getting in a heated discussion with Pillan on Sweden before you got there? Yours truly!

This is why I tend to stay away from these city-specific discussions. Say something positive and a bid and it's "you love that bid so much, how can you be so blind to their problems." Say something negative and it's "how can you bash the bid so much, you don't know what you're talking about." Sorry to go off on a mini-rant there, I know I've done that a lot lately it's just the general nature of this for everyone to get so defensive and pissy at each other. I am so glad I don't have a dog in the fight on this one.

Krakow needs an another country to help them. Not sure if that is positive. Sweden will do everything alone. I see a big problem with to countries host the games.

So did Salzburg. They managed to get 25 out of 95 votes. Didn't win them anything, and them using Königsee is a simpler setup than Poland's bid using Jasna. But still, at least to have it within driving distance makes things a lot simpler than Stockholm using Are. I know it's in the rulebook that they can do that because of geographical issues, but I still don't think the IOC is going to be too thrilled with that, particularly that it's a venue and a sport that is easily affected by the weather.

We made hell here totally without reason.

Im aware of weakness of Krakow bid. Alpine disciplines in Slovakia are handicap for bid. Cant disagree. IOC wont be delighted with this, but this is really good motivated. Not economical reasons, just geographical and ecological ones. IMHO better reasons than Salzburg had.

I just feel that calling it 'multibid' isnt fair. Its Polish bid including one venue abroad.

Someone here mentioned language and currency issues. Actually polish and sloviakian language are similiar and understandable in both directions.

Also I can bet a lot of money on fact that in 2022 Poland will use Euro as Slovakia. The biggest problem i can see here are law issues and high discontent of Slovaks with fact that their country participate in Polish bid.

I support Krakow bid with whole my heart. But as well as most of You I feel its not going to happen in 2022. I knew cases in OG bidding, I knew that both Norway and Sweden have more roots in winter sports and more influence in international organizations. But still, sometimes dreams come true, youll never know untill you'll try.

I think that would be great experience if Krakow will make it to the short list. And Im sure if only Stockholm will treat their bid seriously they will made it too. But still im afraid I see moves of Oslo and Krakow and silence from Sweden.

@Baron why can't you accept that not everyone has the same opinion. If we all believed the same thing, there would be no forum.

^^ How so? Unlike Krakow or Stockholm, at least Oslo can boast on how transport between Oslo and Lillehammer was really not an issue.

Still the distance and 'been-there/done-that' factor - 2x already. Time to open up the Games to other places if the IOC wants a truly global following.

Take a look at the 2020 voting. The IOC voters are fine with the been-there / done that. (Side note - anytime you have to claim "2x" on Stockholm, to make a point, you've automatically lost."

If that were simply the case, Istanbul would've won 2020. It takes more than just saying "go to new places to keep the Games truly global". If it's really that simple, the IOC needs to rush to India ASAP to keep up with a true "global following".

But the Olympics do have a global following. Take a look at this silly board. Every continent has been represented at some point.

Always find it interesting how we all here never can seem to come to a consensus on how to view a former host city/country that is bidding. Is it a positive that they hosted a successful Olympics before? Or is it a negative because the IOC wouldn't want to return there?

I've said plenty of times that I'm not sold on a future Los Angeles summer bid unless I see something different out of them. That said, the United States did land another Olympics 12 years later because they put up a city in a field of less than compelling candidates.

I wouldn't count out Oslo on the basis of 1994 and certainly not 1952. Stockholm's bid is flawed. Krakow's bid is flawed. Beijing almost can't be taken seriously. And then it's Almaty or Lviv? After all that, Oslo doesn't look so bad. And again, 2020 showed that the IOC is more than happy to move away from their new frontier trend.

All of that pragmatism means nothing when a certain you know who is set in their own bias ways. So many here have already outlined the 2022 scenario, but it never sinks in when you have krakow blinders on.

With that said, I definitely give the Polish bid more credit than Lviv & Almaty, but it's certainly not a slam-dunk like a certain someone wants to portray it. And as far as Beijing goes, like I've said all along, they're the reliable back-up plan just in case the top 2022 applicants falter in anyway shape or form (i.e. lack of government backing, etc).
