No, no, you don't get it. No point in trying to explain it to you.

Same as Leipzig in 2012. It was too small

Things were a little different then, the main competition for '96 within the US was from Minneapolis (which is a little under 400,000, but a metropolitan population of 3.1 million). Minneapolis probably had a better bid, but did a terrible job of selling it. But times have changed a lttle, cities like Atlanta and Minneapolis will probably never see another chance at the Olympics.

Yes, but Atlanta had a metro area of over 1.5 mil in 1990; the capital of a state of 6,000,000; and the major city in a region of some 25 mil+ people -- all within its national borders.

Doha is about 95% of the country of Qatar. And what? 40% of the population are expats.

Good thought. But the IOC at that time did not depend on the networks for their big bucks, as it does now -- and the sports calendars are a lot more set in stone now than they were some 40 years ago. That's why.

Good Analyis I think exactly the same maybe it's time for Chicago though I am not a big fan of another US City to host the Olympic quite close to the last one but with this scenario maybe they will just pull it off for Chicago huh
