That's nothing, we mexicans are still paying for the 68 olympics with a tax called "tenencia" (payed every year equalling 2% of the value of everybody's automobile)., can you believe that???

If they do it here in USA 2022 then they should use the Giants Stadium for the Finals in The NY Metro Area
New York is the capital of the world, and certainly one of the best cities in the U.S

So whats the deal...

2022 is quite realistic for the US to host.

With the next two venues confirmed as 2010 South Africa and 2014 Brazil it's extremely unlikely that 2018 would not be in Europe. The USA is bidding for 2018 but more than likely it's groundwork for a 2022 bid and not a serious attempt on 2018.

OMG!! 40 years today!!!! Ay-yay-yay!!

I rest my case.

Also, I believe Greece had a huge deficit the 2 years after Athens 2004. And I understand that a number of the Athens venues are 'white elephants' today -- falling into disrepair and neglect. They can't find enough uses for them.

No, im just telling you to stop ruining this thread...if you think your so right then stop trying to argue with everyone, its pointless

this is an international forum, open your eyes a little. it has nothing to do with intelligence, just that you cant seem to accept other points of view.

I also see a 2022 bid for the US., 2018 is going to be a war between Spain and England., 2022 will be a sure lock for the US. I went to 2 games in Dallas in the 94 WC and they were fantastic in every sense., I really think that Europe doesnt realize the soccer hipe thats going on in the US., MLS is growing every year, in soccer and infraestructure level., teams are growing in their fan base and everybody knows that in the ages from 5 to 12 (boys and girls) the US has the largest organized leagues in the world.

Most Olympic sports generate little interest outside of the games themselves.

Please don't tell me you about to compare a diving pool or cycling velodrome to a football stadium.

Please stop acting like a troll. You're embarrassing yourself.

Oh, F&ck u!! Who asked you to be monitor, miss prissypants?

Obviously your mind can only recognize football stadia -- not the whole picture.

Very narrow.

Pathetic.

Theres no sense in arguing a point you know you cant win. Just suck it up and admit your not going to win this one.

Back to the topic, please!!!., US has everything to organize the best WC ever, but not in 2018., Spain is my frontrunner., '82 (the first WC that I remember) was fantastic, that final between Italy and Germany was simply great.

But why put down others? So it's OK for someone to put me down but not for me to reciprocate? Kindly explain that.

2 can play the condescension game as well as 1.

It's OK for the 'mexican' poster to simply state his views. I just mention something about Athens in a sentence or 2 -- and I get slammed by some perverse pr*ck -- and you second that.

Is your thinking so limited?

Your the one who started the name calling and the irrational responses. Obviously your going to disagree with the people on this thread, but you seem to be going about it the wrong way, as if every time someone disagrees with you its like they insulted your mother. Dont be so defensive all the time.

I got into the stadium in mere minutes, and found my way to my seat easily.

I can understand how the metro station might get blocked due to the large amount of people trying to get a metro ticket from the machines after the game, but this can be avoided by issuing special world cup passes so that people can move smoothly across the turnstiles.

I simply don't see the need for wasting money on a new stadium when the skins could spend that money on good players. Sure, a roof is great, but it's not the most important thing when it comes to a stadium. I find all the other features of the FedEx field to meet the standards of the other major stadiums of the world.
When you have to deal with it all the time you would understand. FedEx Field is slowly killing the Redskins fan base.

Oh, please. I wasn't born yesterday. It's the tone of condescension. Who the h*ll does he think he is? And it's NOT the first time this iain pr*ck did it either. I didn't pull that condescension sh*t on him.

I really don't have to take it. I can give as good as I get.

look, believe it or not i probably agree with what you say on this board more than i agree with anyone else. I just think if you really have a problem then you just have to let it go. Obviously there is a HUGE anti american bias on this board...isnt just ignoring these people the best way to go? arguing with them wont change their ignorant views. and stop being so damn short with me...i dont think im coming across meanly in any way, so dont be so sarcastic to me

Well, it certainly didn't seem that way. I mean you actually seconded iain's post "100%" -- so how else was I to interpret that??

I generally don't let the "anti-American bias" pass. As you may have noticed, I am feisty and will fight. Actually gets my juices flowing. I'll take criticism if I think I am wrong. But not if I am not. And I'll slam it back in their face if they are wrong or unjustified.

So I have served notice that I am not going to take any old 'guff' -- and if anyone wants to play the 'sarcasm / put down' game -- then they're on.
