I'm the racist? You just said that only white people can be considered bogans.

Back to USA though
If they are put to good use, then's great by me. As a fan of both NRL and AFL, I'd like to see those venues packed. Right now, though, visions are a bit grandiose.

I'm pretty sure someone can explain it but that's the definition, only someone using it in that manner is a racist like yourself.

BTW impressive knowledge on Australian grounds, why don't you publish the American ones instead?? After all aren't you claiming to be American??

But the reason why this is important to FIFA is that a private company can easily go belly up, leaving FIFA holding the bag and costing them more money than they would have ever wanted. Goverments are much less likely to go belly up. That is why it is attractive to FIFA that a government supports the bid. And why the role (or lack of) of the US Government is an important issue for the US bid!
1-President Obama hosted Sepp Blatter in his oval office in 2009.
2-Bill Clinton, some bid commitee members and team USA were hosted by President Obama and Vice-President Biden before the 2010 WC. It was a first time.
3-Vice-president Biden went to South Africa for the opening game and met Sepp Blatter.
4-Bill Clinton brought his weight for supporting the US bid, was watching some matches with some ex-co members and had breakfast with seven ex-co members.
5-The FIFA inspection team had a breakfast in the White House, met Shaun Donovan, US Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
and a senior counsellor, watched a video from former president George Herbert Walker Bush and met severall city mayors.

So there is a government involvement to the bid. Governments are not obliged to spend big money for a WC.
THe FIFA inspection team had a break

I generally like your posts Krudmonk but in this case you are just plain wrong. Winning the bid for 2022 is the catalyst to setting up our sporting infrastructure for then next 40 years and it's already evident that almost all of these developements were to / are being built over the next 10 years anyway. I fail to see how boosting a stadiums capacity by a mere 7000 using temporary means for a one off event is a waste. I think you know this too.

The only venues I imagine won't see any development if Australia doesn't win is the Canberra Stadium and Blacktown. I'd imagine Townsville's Stadium would get a far more modest redevopment and the Sydney's ANZ and SFS would probably remain as they are.

Sure sure keep dreaming T74, I don't think even the Qatar bid team have made a more embarrassing statement and they've made some real bad ones.

as I said, try buying a paper and stop relying on Today Tonight for your news:

http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news...111-17oih.html

A high-profile panel set up by President Barack Obama has recommended deep spending cuts and sweeping tax reforms in a bid to slash US budget deficits by four trillion US dollars over the next decade.

Firing the starting gun for a bruising political debate, the bipartisan panel's co-chairs proposed "painful" cuts to defense and domestic spending as well as an overhaul of the fiendishly complex US tax code.

Warning "America cannot be great if we go broke," Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles outlined rapid reductions to bring the deficit under control and reforms to reduce long-term debt, which currently stands at over 14 trillion US dollars.

Offering both Republicans and Democrats something to chew on, the chairs said the "country will not be able to compete without a plan to get this crushing debt burden off our back."

The measures include a 200 billion dollar cut in discretionary spending in 2015, split equally between defense and domestic outlays, to bring the annual deficit down to 2.2 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).

I think it was X who asked..."aside from Blazer, Warner and Thompson, who else can the US bid count on?"

Our offices just got off the phones. Here's your answer: In addition to the 3 above, Salguero, Hayatou, Leoz, Teixeira, Anouma, Valcke, Beckenbauer, Lefkaratis and Llona will compose the (first-round) U.S. bloc.
