False. You'll find that most Greeks think that the Athens games were outstanding, wheras I have seen more non-Australians vote for Sydney I'm with Mo Rush. Don't you get bored talking crap?

Haha, um..thing is. No one actually cares?

Are you proud of that?
Well, we had a known Olympic Torch bearer who wasn't caught using drugs before the ceremony. Are YOU proud of that? Haha. Anyway, again you're only focusing on the Opening Ceremony. I'll remind you in bold letters: The Opening Ceremony is not the only thing present at the Olympic Games. You're a horrible representative of Greece - one can only hope that with such cheap logic like yours, the games NEVER go back to Athens.

ill start... sydney was the best games ever and athens was a pile of poo. that should get you going.
I have never read more embarassing and disgusting posts to any thread since joining this site. Reyrey knew exactly what he was doing when he started this thread, and some people have completely taken the bait. How embarassing...

What is wrong with the world today? (there's a thread if ever I heard one)
"Who has the bigger *****", alright!

Why do people feel insistant that their opinions matter most? By all means, add your thoughts, but to attack others is just plain crazy. Accept that people are different. If other's do not agree with our opinions, does this mean that they are wrong? NO! The world is made up of billions of amazing people with very different ways of thinking, living, etc. Fine, disagree but it's so barbaric to attack another for such ridiculous reasons.

Personally I couldn't seperate Sydney with Athens. Is it because I was incredibly lucky to have attended Sydney? Or because I am of 100% Greek origin? Doesn't really matter does it?
I am all for national pride and it's positive influence on a society but come on people!!!
You can't take away the amazing Greek influence on modern society and neither can you disreguard any other race's influence either. I hold a special place in my "mind" and heart for what they achieved and gave us. This however does not make me think I am superior...just lucky to understand its importance ( ...and probably only to me).

So for the Greek contingent, get the hell over it! You are completely embarassing yourselves and showing the world a very bad side to our society.

So who held the best Olympics? Oh I don't know...how long is a piece of string?

(by the way, I welcome positive feedback to this post. You don't have to agree with any of it but at least have the intelligence to be courteous and respectful)

Giorgos and Landos must be the two biggest f*******s on the forum. They are too stupid to deserve a response.

Yes most of what you have said is exactly that... CRAP.

Rest assured we are keeping track of it even if you are too stupid to remember some of the insane and offensive things you have said.
