Maybe someone should just bite the bullet and start an "American Sports Leagues Suck!" thread and move all the animus over to it?

Just a suggestion.



Question: what city has the most indoor arena's that hold more than 10,000?

Because that's mostly being used for gymnastics in 2012. The finals will be played at the O2 though.

The Aquatics Centre interior picture above is an old render. Capacity is actually 17.5k Games-time with a massive reduction post-2012. And of course, 2/3rds of the Olympic stadium is temporary, and the basketball arena is entirely temporary.

Yes. It's an entirely temporary structure which can be moved post-games without too much trouble. The handball arena is permanant, so there won't be the need for the basketball arena in the park post-2012 as well. The plan is to move it to another city, though we don't know which city that'll be yet.

If we where talking about state/province in my opinion it would have to be Texas.

Talking about cities I think Dallas should be thrown in to the mix, maybe it won't win but its worthy of the talk with all the stadiums, arenas it has.

Impressive list, however i think LA has Athens beat. there are at least 6 arenas in LA with a seating capacity over 12,000 (Staples, Forum, Sports Arena, Galen, Pauly Pavillion, Ontario) and countless others for high schools, colleges and so forth over 5000.

Galen only holds 10k and change so you'd have to drop the criteria to 10k and up to include it.
