Delhi 2010

Recommended Posts

1. It is not just my opinion, but the opinion of many people that Manchester held an exemplary games. Even the heads of CWG federation have stated this. (Sorry if this dispels your attempts to portray Manchester as a poor host- we'll need to wait until Abuja hosts for a total disater to occur in hosting the Commonwealth games.)

2. The test event mentioned in the article was not the 'English' athletics trials but rather the AAA's athletics trials which encompasses ALL of Britain. So, the article is wrong.

3. People not finding their way around a stadium is hardly a failure. Delhi might not even have one completed. That's the difference which people are worried about.

So Jim, your attempt to belittle Britain again really just shows you up for the sad human being you are.

Manchester held a great games, Glasgow is going to host a great games and you'll just have sit at home with your momma, in New Scotland, I mean Nova Scotia and watch or maybe you can take a vacation to Abuja for the duration.

Yeah the opinion of Manchester People really holds water . What major event did they ever host in the recent past ? THe 30th anniversary of Coronation Street ?

If you go by the schedule for Test events posted for New Delhi 2010 and what happened in that Story you would be looking at the athletics portion of the Games having the Test Event in New Delhi staged 4 months before the opening compared to 5 weeks before the opening. Whether New Delhi actually carries through on that schedule we will see but 5 weeks before the games the venue with the vast amount of events does not spell exemplary staging by any means. Why couldn't Manchester have staged a test event in April ? Stadium not ready ???? Man Manchester only had a Stadium without one end having Grandstands and yet the contractors said back in 2000 they doubted it would get done . The Velodrome and Aquatics Centre was there. Did Manchester add a rail link to the Stadium ?

Of course hey this is the nation who actually canceled the 2005 World athletics Championships because the Scaffolding Tartan Field concept was shown to be bogus yet Glasgow 2014 depends on that concept to stage the games they were rejected for in 2002. Auckland for a potential 2018 bid does not even entertain that idea . Belittling Great Britain is not difficult as Great Britian has a history of doing it herself.

If by your mind Manchester was an exemplary then having a Test Event for Athletics for New Delhi in September would put New Delhi in the same league? A month before the games is terrible really .

Here is a reminder of the concerned on one Barry Maister in regards to Manchester 2002

Commonwealth Games: Worries ahead says Maister

By TERRY MADDAFORD

National Olympic Committee boss Barry Maister has real concerns about cramped facilities at some venues for next year's Commonwealth Games.

He remains confident, however, that elsewhere Manchester will be ready for the July 25 opening ceremony. He is not so sure about the 2004 Athens Olympics.

And, he feels the ever-expanding Commonwealth Games are bad news for any New Zealand city hoping to host them in future.

Maister, the NOC chief executive, president John Davies and selection overseer Bruce Cameron are back from the Commonwealth Games Federation forum and a whistle-stop tour of games' sites.

There are worries over the venue for aquatic events at next year's Commonwealth Games and about the university accommodation which will house athletes and officials.

"The swimming venue is a problem," said Maister. "One of the most popular sports on the programme is being staged in a centre which seats only 1500 spectators. They hope to add another 1000 by building temporary seating over the diving pool but even then they are going to be well short of what is needed.

"By the time the media and VIPs are taken care of, there is not going to be much left for the public. The pool is more a community facility than a competition one.

"The village accommodation at Manchester University will be cramped and a lower class than athletes expect nowadays," said Maister.

He has no such concerns about other sports, including track and field, to be held in a new main stadium which will become the home of Manchester City Football Club.

"They have built the main stadium and some other facilities in a rundown part of the city, which is commendable.

"The indoor stadium, which will host netball and boxing, reputedly has seating for 20,000, the largest in Europe."

Maister has other concerns.

He is worried the games are becoming too big and will almost certainly cost smaller countries any chance of hosting them in future.

"Looking at what is being spent in Manchester and what is proposed for Melbourne in 2006, there would be no change out of $1 billion if New Zealand were to host them again.

"There was a lot of discussion about the size of the games at the forum," said Maister.

"There are already plans to restrict games from 2010 to seven or eight mandatory sports and a couple of team events.

"The Commonwealth Games are already bigger than the Winter Olympics and next year's games will, with 6000 athletes and officials, be the biggest multi-sports event ever staged in the UK."

Again go and look to Athletes or sports Admins . Do you actually know any personally ? I do. A city of Manchester who's last great event was probably World War 2 does not have much of a yardstick to compare.

As much as press will harp on the negative you usually have some good news stories surrounding an event . If Calgary 88 had been a repeat of Montreal 76' in any shape or form I frankly would have said Canada Can't get its act together for Vancouver 2010. We heard the whining of Europeans for 88 and all I have to say to that is we made a huge profit for the third time in the history of the Olympics and that came when it was desperately needed for the very survival of the Olympic Movement.

With Mr Maister ,who is still the New Zealand Olympic Committee's chair, we have no words from him on New Delhi and with a Louise Martin came the words on the New Delhi Athletes village that New Delhi will have the best athletes village for a commonwealth games so far.

There is a great difference between what New Delhi is trying to accomplish and what either Glasgow or Manchester ultimately did or will do. THere are no stories of finances being the problems with New Delhi 2010 while the UK games of 2002 and 2014 seem to have that as a running theme. I thought the UK was superior to everyone on the planet ? New Delhi like a Kuala Lumpur 98' or Beijing 08' is an expression of coming into a club of great nations thru a sports festival . New Delhi 2010 still has the jury out on that . Frankly as a supporter of Emerging Economies doing these things I can't see how New Delhi gains those goals via the Capital Phase of these games but really they are not alone in their folly.

Perhaps not, but the fact of the matter is that the president of the CWGF believes Delhi will really struggle to match the standards met by Manchester and Melbourne.

"The CGF is extremely worried about the organising committee's ability to deliver the Games to any comparable standard to that of the last two editions of the Games in Manchester (2002) and Melbourne (2006)."

There's no room for misinterpration here and his opinion carries slightly more weight with me than yours Jonezzz. The World Athletics Championships, London 2012, or anything else for that matter has nothing to do with this. This thread is about Delhi and every informed individual (this doesn't include yourself) has raised massive concerns which completely overshadow any problems other recent games have had.

Belittling Great Britain is not difficult as Great Britian has a history of doing it herself.

That's lovely to know, but you're as good as admitting you're a xenophonic c#nt and a troll.

Manchester's aquatics venue held in the region of 4000 plus seats so the article's claims were proved untrue.

Also, it is highly disgusting to say Manchester's last great event was world war two. Are you familiar with how the most famous football club in the world play in their 75,000 seat stadium regularly in Manchester ?

Jim, you keep trying to convince people to hate Britain and use lies to make your arguments. Manchester 2002 happened 7 years ago and you are still moaning about it. Sad little man!!

The only reason any news emerges in Britain about finances is that there is a transparency issue in our country which gives the public information. Lots of countries are secretive about such things. I think this shows how Britain is more open about these things. However, Britain also never had the threat of having the games incomplete like Delhi has and hence why the sporting community is worried for Delhi as is the CWG federation.

Everyone on these forums know you are a racist bigot and hence why everyone laughs at you. Did you see that thread in the general 2016 area where one forum member jokingly suggests that a silly article was wrote by you. The reason they made that thread is because people think you are an idiot and when people see stupid things they automatically think of you. Ha ha.That's you legacy on these forums - you are a laughing stock!

Excuse me whilst I laugh at you Jimmy!

Go Dehli and go Glasgow and please send my best wishes to Abuja as I hope they can overcome this troublesome hour of unrest and maybe oneday stage the commonwealth games - if the social unrest doesn't prevent it.

This is the same man who thought London 2012 was taking place in the home town of Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon, I kid you not. What he is and isn't aware of about the UK is hardly relevent to any real or worthy discussion (especially not in a Delhi 2010 thread).

And I am sure Nigeria has a very glorious track record of hosting international events with their fold-in velodrome and inability to host a simple Beauty pageant. Not to mention their wonderful handling of logistics during the All-Africa Games.

Now remind me, which country was it that eventually hosted the pageant ? I think it started with a G... :lol:

Well hey considering you call me a racist bigot when it is your country who aired a BNP leader the other night on the BBC with people in violent protest outside the Studio's trying to suppress freedom of expression of a Neo Nazi I take that comment with a grain of salt.

How long has it been since the Campbells Slaughtered the MacDonalds in Glencoe and yet the Mac Donalds still hold a grunge more then 3 centuries later ?

Jim, you really are a silly man.

The BNP has nothing to do with this topic nor does an historic event that happened 3 hundred years ago.Stop mentioning silly things as you are making fool of yourself.

Jim, Delhi is a city in India and this city is hosting the 2010 Commonwealth games. Do you understand this? Your racism against Britain is not acceptable and has nothing to do with the topic.

Go have your squabbles elsewhere - this is about Delhi

So where you do think a federation or the athletes should go on Delhi 2010? The Child of the Sheep would say oh it should not have been awarded to anyone without pale white skin but the fact remains it has been awarded simply because you cannot deny the Largest Democracy in the World the Games in 2010 while China was awarded the only games that really amount to anything two years prior being the 2008 SOG's . The Federation would look totally out of touch with the rest of the world including the Only Games that matter celebrating the youth of the world VS the festival that celebrates our common enslavement that British colonies endured for centuries .

What was the plan B. award the games to Hamilton which doesn't even come close to being the largest city in Ontario or Canada ? Have the organizers of Hamilton 2010 try to compete with Vancouver 2010 for sponsorship ? You can never go back in History if the history in not wrote. Hamilton would have been different of course but you would have probably had the only parts of the Commonwealth that have population growth being Africa and Asia say . Screw it , New Delhi Rejected a third time . It smacks of mighty white nations ruling over us .

The Facts are that Manchester itself was in danger of Canceling 2002 games and all they provided for New Venues was basically a New Athletics Stadium .

Imagine if Manchester had to do what New Delhi is doing for their hosting which is totally overboard ? New Subway Lines , many flyovers , an 80000 seat stadium , a second stadium for Rugby Sevens , an Aquatics Centre , a Velodrome. an actual Athletes village not college dorms . Hamilton would have been committed to match New Delhi line item for line item. Hamilton I am sure presented MacMaster University for an Athletes village but that trumped by the promises of New Delhi.

The history of an event and how it was staged in the past is totally relevant to it's continued future. That includes a games touted as the "model" by some who are blinded by patriotism .

I wonder what the excuses will be in 2014 when history is again repeated ? The Ironic thing is the opponent for 2014 seems to be on the path to providing the Transportation commitments for their 2014 bid on time while Glasgow has dropped the ball crying poverty. I have yet to read a single article from New Delhi 2010 press stating that they are cutting back on anything in regards to their games promises . Really for speed and saving themselves for embarrassment they should do like the Scots are doing or Manchester did before them . Put the games in proper prospective that less then 200 million dollars is what you get in return for staging the games while you lay out 2 billion dollars and up. The Exposure is What ? The UK who paid a mere 4 million pounds for Games rights for 2002 ?

A games no private company in the UK would take Merch on consignment when the Uk last hosted ? A games that the English team had to pay for uniforms for the 2006 games because no apparent maker in the UK thinks there is any value in sponsoring even as goods in kind ?

New Delhi's biggest mistake was taking these games to mean something a kin to the Summer Olympics. Both Melbourne and Manchester took the view of it being the consolation prize for not winning Olympic bids. Maybe is it foolish pride that has India take that lofty approach for something that has little value even in the White Commonwealth Nations .

Everyone, this is a racist comment made by the bigot Jim Jones.He is trying to hijack the Delhi thread.

Jim Jones has stated "The Child of the Sheep" meaning that Scottish people are subhuman - he is saying Scottish people are animals. RACISM.

Do not stand for it as people like Jim are sick, depraved human beings who live their sick fantasies through the cowardnoce of the internet where they promote hatred and racism.

You know, it's a bit disappointing we don't have more (do we even have ANY???) Indian members.

For a country that places so much profile on its IT abilities, and where English is still an important second language, I'd have thought we might have had more Indian games fans here.

Is it just the stereotype that if it's not Cricket, they're not interested? Is nobody thyere starting to anticipate a great games just over a year ahead? I hope we start getting more Indian members as the games approoaches - and is India still making cryptic musings about an Olympic bid?

And by the way, it's a bloody long and slow relay route for the Baton??? Almost a year to go, and it's already on its way. I know the Commonwealth is vast and scattred, but this seems waaaaayyy long.

You know, it's a bit disappointing we don't have more (do we even have ANY???) Indian members.

For a country that places so much profile on its IT abilities, and where English is still an important second language, I'd have thought we might have had more Indian games fans here.

Is it just the stereotype that if it's not Cricket, they're not interested? Is nobody thyere starting to anticipate a great games just over a year ahead? I hope we start getting more Indian members as the games approoaches - and is India still making cryptic musings about an Olympic bid?

Well there are a lot of indian members on the net talking about the CWG, but most of them are on the Skyscrapercity forums :U

Go here and you'll find quite a good activity and most of the posters on this thread are indians http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.p...911&page=86
