If this is your sole arguement for Athens being the best games you are more stupid than I thought. It is simply not a credible reason.



Dont forget the winners received wreaths? I am so excited I cannot contain myself. You say you don't care about ceremonies. Another hypocritcal comment by yourself. There have been many multiple comments made by yourself that would be prove otherwise. Should I go and source them?
My comment was in response to JimB. If he dosent Like Ceremonies, then How can one say Athens wasnt the Best Olympics? Sydney had Drug Cheats left right and centre. Athens was a hell of alot more cleaner. If you couldnt see that your stupider than i thought.

You are a complete knob. You can't string a rational or coherent thought together online. I try to accept some people in this world have less grey matter. You consistently prove you have a vacuous and empty head.

Nothing you say, contribute or add to debate shows any glimmer of intellect - you can't even post something original. Your arguments are cyclic and continue along the same theme post after post. I wish Mo Rush would shoot you, he would be doing most of us a favour. I come back here months later and you still sprout the same baseless shit. It's any wonder you have been vilified in the Oz forums.

So now you say that Athens was better beacuse it had no drugs... wake up and smell the roses - Athens too had drugs cheats. Drug detection systems are infallible - there is always room for error and there is always people that will beat the system in some way. You are naive to think we live in a perfect world and the Athens games was perfect.

There are a multitude of ways in which one could subjectively judge which olympics to date has been better. Your opinion (and that's what it is) is not everyone's. So why don't you STFU for a change and mind your own business. You change your interpretation daily and alter your reasons to suit the posts made. Why don't you try and stick to one idea - it's all you are mentally cabable of.

Don't worry Giorgos can, he seems like the all-knowing guru for anything and everything that happens is this world. I am sure nothing much escapes him.

For all the flak it recieved before the games, Athens turned out to be the best. Very good venues, plus the added historical bonus.

1. Athens 2004
2. Athens 1896
3. Any other Games

Discussing the "best Olympic Games" outside Greece is like discussing the best red wine outside France.
Sorry Guys, no country has the Parthenon, no country has Olympia, no country has the term "Olympic" as a native word.
I can accept anything and I do not praise Greece and Greeks as the "chosen
race" in any case, but face it: On top of the games, Olympics are about spirit and culture, thus about heritage. I'm sorry australians and all other host nations/cities, technically and economically you may argue forever, but simply
put, there is only one Olympia and it lies in Peloponnese in Southern Greece.

Heritage, Spirit and Peace.

You're one of those guys who goes to all sort of problem just to prove your case no matter how lose the connection is, ay? Very sensitive guy inside, intravert who just splashes emotions without even thinking what others people portray you as.

I dunno why you live in Australia or try to bag Australia as if it really dissappointed you directly. Sounds like arrogence from outside but soft slack-loser jealosy inside.

The world will improve as soon as natural selection takes it place removing you. Just keep digging your own grave, every shovel ya stroke the more pychlically depressed you'll be. Take it as an advice.

one day you'll learn.
