Auckland is wonderful, for sure it would make a great candidate for olympic games, only because new-zelanders are great in sports, i am sure all of you will be welcomed very well in Paris or London

(A little advantage for Paris from NZ since Jonah Lomu supports the bid please ? )

and...what is your point exactly ??? a group of 20.000 people, mainly english speaking and young said they prefer seeing the games in Paris rather than London...so what are you trying to say with your above statement ??

actually i would expect that a group of english speaking young people would vote London before Paris, in any kind of poll....

Estoy deseando que Madrid gane los juegos olimpicos para que asi se le quite la prepotencia a los de Londres.

Prefiero a cualquier ciudad antes que a Londres.

2012 Olympics should be held in Karachi or Islamabad, Pakistan. It's about time for us to shine.

Yeah but in order to get the games you have to bid for them? Last time I checked the IOC didn't have the choice to go for Islamabad.

You wanna talk about racism? So don't forget to tell us about some of your forumers like EnglishKevin:

You can only take so much bullshit from a country that has only been a democracy for 50 years and . A country that had colonies in south america that have all been piss-poor third world failures .

No Spanish Concorde . No Spanish Aston Martin , Jaguar or Rolls Royce . In fact what has spain ever made ? I can't think of any modern industrial product that the spanish have invented whether it be a tv , car , plane , tank , ship or bloody vaccuum cleaner .

Spain .....one of europe's second rate nations that has just started to look a bit better thanks to the EU and the richer more successful countries like the UK , Germany , Holland & France handing it money

Spain.....the type of country where they would openly go hysterical in the streets if they ever won the eurovision song contest or actualy won anything because they never have .

Pathetic bunch of children.....runing around an internet forum getting your little greasy third world gang together and getting all excited over a silly little online poll . If you had a better history and hadn't been such a failure you A . wouldn't be so bloody excited over nothing and B . Wouldn't be so ******* desperate to get noticed .

Greasy ******* third world spicks .


Is that meaning that all English are racist? Because I start to have a strong feeling that this is what some of you are trying to tell about the Spaniards, a country where over 650'000 foreigners come every year with the hope of starting a better life...

No further comments are needed I think...

i hope Madrid will win!it's going to be difficult for all the cities.They are all fantastic cities.
if Madrid doesn't win, i prefer Paris, Moscu or New York ¡great cities with great people!
London is a city i like a lot, but the english forumers have disappoint me. i hope they wont get 2012 olympic games.
i can't understand why english forumers are all the time telling spanish people is racist.bad people is in everywhere (hooligans,racist...) but they are the few or i want to believe that.
please stop this children discussions and let's talk about the bids with respect.thanks

os pido españoles que no caigais en los piques estos porque no merecen la pena, vamos a disfrutarlo y a pasar con las tonterias de algunos. yo sigo pensando que mas importante que responderles es demostrar que estamos a la altura y tenemos la mejor candidatura.

By the way, this very sad situation doesn't seem to happen only in Spain:

...Despite concerted efforts by the Football Association and other organisations, racism and hooliganism remain serious problems in UK football...

This is the source in case you want to know more about it (was quite easy to find something about this serious problem that affects most of the countries on google):

http://www.independence.co.uk/public...esinsport.html

Before criticising other's country you'd better check yours first as it isn’t necessarily the best example to follow in terms of hooliganism and racism...

And is the only one you know? ignorant, like most of english people. Ignorant.

A country where they were still riding on donkeys 20 years .

Second sign of ignorance. We've been a democracy since 1977, after a long dictature, but before the dictature we were a democracy. Did you know that? Ignorant!.

No Spanish Concorde . No Spanish Aston Martin , Jaguar or Rolls Royce . In fact what has spain ever made ? I can't think of any modern industrial product that the spanish have invented whether it be a tv , car , plane , tank , ship or bloody vaccuum cleaner .

That's why you are so ignorant! We invented the helicopter and the submarine for example. Ignorant!

Spain .....one of europe's second rate nations that has just started to look a bit better thanks to the EU and the richer more successful countries like the UK , Germany , Holland & France handing it money

I could tell you a lot of things about spanish economy and why Spain is doing great but I don't think you will understand. Is not only because you gave us some money. Not to much by the way. Ignorant!

Spain.....the type of country where they would openly go hysterical in the streets if they ever won the eurovision song contest or actualy won anything because they never have .

Are you talking about the celebrations for the rugby world title in London? I though you were gonna destroy the city. By the way we won eurovision 3 times. Ignorant!.

Pathetic bunch of children.....runing around an internet forum getting your little greasy third world gang together and getting all excited over a silly little online poll .
Are you talking about you?

If you had a better history and hadn't been such a failure you A . wouldn't be so bloody excited over nothing and B . Wouldn't be so ******* desperate to get noticed .

I'm sorry for some english people, I've been living there for two years and they are not as stupid as this one.

when a stadium full chants monkey noises questions can be raised about Spanish football, not Spain as a whole, then when it is repeated at a further two matches then repeated by its coach on two seperate occassions as well.

However, I wa surprised because one would expect if Spanish people were going to be racist to anyone it would be to arabs and morrocans not black people.

But Kika if that happened in England and the English coach said those things UEFA and FIFA would have gone mental probably keeping England out of competitions, what happened to the Spanish FA? not much. Lets judge everyone in the same way shall we instead of trying to put a spin on it.
