Man, I can't imagine the chaos that would become of NYC if they were to win. Hotel rates are already at sky high prices, this would just push them well beyond that.

It would be a shock if it's not Paris. If for some reason it's not Paris, it'll be London. NYC probably has little or no shot (which seems to be fine with most people i've talked to who live there).

I go with Paris too.

Putin shall buy the Olympics w/ Kraft's ring.

Paris seems to be the only city of the five where the residents actually want the games.

Red Dog 07-01-05 03:07 PM

When is it announced?

shizawn 07-01-05 03:17 PM

I'd prefer New York only because it'd mean more live events, but Paris will probably win.

Baghdad ;) j/k

I say Paris

Ginwen 07-02-05 07:29 AM

Paris. If not Paris, then London, but I think it'll be Paris.

After Atlanta and SLC, I think IOC wants the Olympics out of North America -- we bring the biggest contingency and (likewise) we bring the largest fanbase when it's in the US.

Current Odds

Paris: 2-9
London: 7-2
Madrid: 12-1
NY: 25-1
Moscow: 50-1

The NY odds dropped considerably after they coudn't get approval to get the stadium built in Manhattan and had to present their plan B.

ChiTownAbs, Inc 07-04-05 09:36 AM

Which stadium? The new Jets or Yankees?

eXcentris 07-04-05 01:56 PM

The stadium the Jets were supposed to use. The state of NY refused to give the $300,000 subsidy required to build the 78,000 seat Manhattan stadium.

Quake1028 07-04-05 02:02 PM

Paris.

Red Dog 07-04-05 02:17 PM

I thought the new NY stadium proposal is one for the Olympics and Mets in Queens.

I would assume that Yankee Stadium (either a new one or the existing one) is part of the bid - as the baseball venue.

Correct but this is plan B, it was not the original proposal made by NY to the IOC, which was the new Manhattan/jets stadium.

I'm more concerned with who's gonna win the 2012 Special Olympics.

I was always under the impression that the Special Olympics were awarded to the Olympic city AFTER the Olympics were done.

FantasticVSDoom 07-04-05 06:51 PM

I would say Paris, and I just pray to God its not NYC. Its crazy enough around here now, no need to make it anymore. But they are saying that if NYC doesnt get it for 2012, they will be a good bet for 2016.

:hscratch: it was a joke. (believe it or not)

ChiTownAbs, Inc 07-04-05 08:13 PM

Paris or London would be nice, but I'm leaning towards NYC.
