That's debatable. If you read or listen to the coverage of the voting the opinion that the Barcelona one was the best ever is still widely supported.

2016: ... (Rio, I hope).
Madrid is a wonderful city, but if they win there needs to be loud protest against the IOC voting process. Athens, London, Sochi, Madrid* - it's kind of getting out of hand.

We saw what so many Chicago supporters feared. Unless there is a clear, clear favorite, the voting system almost encourages voters to get rid of a couple candidates before taking the vote seriously. This causes voters to vote geographically early on and there can be surprise eliminations early because of this, as voters are not voting for who they really think should host the games. It's a flawed system and something I think the Chicago supporters saw as a real threat to their bid, which it was.

Come on Rio! Was very surprised to see Chicago out so soon.
I don't really count the Winter Olympics. It's a totally different and vastly more limited pool of bid cities.

Chicago seemed to suffer from a lack of support. The question of whether it was financially feasible also played a big role. Rio has the support of the people. Madrid has the financial advantage for having built almost all venues.

People like me? You don't know me c#ntface

I do, however know that from your posts you don't deserve an Olympics in your city. Your posts lack Olympic spirit and have done throughout this thread. I'll be happy if Rio wins, but not for you, as you've consistently been a **** in this thread.

WOW!!
I cannot believe Chicago was voted out in the first round.
Something smells funny,,,,,,,
it either shows how much the world hates the US or how much internal politics is involved in the IOC (Samaranch). Im not a sore loser, im just upset it went out in the first round. THE FIRST ROUND!! AHHAHHA

If Samaranch has that much influnce, the IOC needs reform!
Good try Chicago, maybe 2020.

Go Rio!! cuz they are cool peoples.
Not Madrid, not Europe, again.
