although i would love NY to win, it is quite obvious that they wont. That being said i think the best bid would have to be London's, followed by Paris. But sadly with all the politics involved in the voting of the IOC, Paris might end up winning for it's policy making =/.

I think it says something when a city so badly hit by war in a nation so badly affected by it is the only one capable of hosting the games after WW2.
Yeah i have always wondered why was it us who hosted the 1948 Olympics?! Surely the US could have held it?

Paris is way in front at the bookmakers, and they are not often very wrong. London in a fairly distant second place, everybody else is nowhere. If you genuinely think Paris isn't going to win then put your money where your mouth is, you could make a killing.

Paris 1.14/1
London 9.6/1
NYC 50/1
Moscow 50/1
Madrid 70/1

Surprised to see Madrid behind Moscow in some bookmakers odds. Here is Ladbrokes odds - more realistic i think.

Paris 1.20
London 4.50
Madrid 13.00
New York 21.00
Moscow 67.00

Yes, sure, whatever. London bribed the judges, sponsored the ETA attacks in Madrid, stalled the stadium negotiations in New York, organised the strikes in Paris and is now preparing Chechen uproar in Moscow. AND ON TOP OF IT ALL WE'RE GOING TO RAPE YOUR DAUGHTERS NEXT CHRISTMAS MUHAHA!

**** this thread, I'm back to the UK forum, no reasonable discussion is possible here.

I live in NYC, and I do NOT want the Olympics in NYC. I see very little benefit, and many costs, not even taking into consideration the security burden it will place on my home city.

Paris 2012 in difficulty with the french NO ?

It is possible. However Paris will start a stronger worldwide compaign and it started today with a new report :

http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/CU0506/S00010.htm

Paris - the peoples choice for Olympics 2012

"While citizens in hopeful 2012 Olympic host cities London, Madrid, Moscow, New York and Paris hold their breath in anticipation of a July 6th Olympic Committee decision, a large number of the world’s inhabitants have already made up their minds about which city they would prefer, and it’s Paris, according to the findings of a global study conducted by ACNielsen."

About the european constitution referendum, Bertrand Delanöé, paris'mayor, enjoys to say that 66% of parisians said yes.

Bribing the Judges?

What by offering a package to help athletes from developing countries who cant afford plane fares, accomodation and food to take part in thier dream to compete with the best and represent thier country in one of the greatest cities in the world.

Yeh nice one.
