Olympics Cancellation

At this time, that would be crazy but sounds like it will happen. Still notice they have about 1,000 new cases per day confirmed in Tokyo, a region with about 30 million people. The US is far above that rate in new cases and has been pretty much since last April.

Ask yourself how much does the IOC love money?........and then give me +140 for the limit.


You're right. But it doesn't mean cancellation prior to the opening ceremonies. Just a few
cases in the Olympic village can have a rippling effect. They might not have a choice
if teams can't practice and/or athletes are sent home home.

Yup, will not sponsor anything Olympics related.
Its worse than that. Toyota is still paying to sponsor the Olympics, but fear of public reprisals from the Japanese people has led them to just abandon their TV ads and other marketing efforts. So they are paying for what will be blanks if this goes off. The Mexican media is all over the Olympics and what's going to happen since they don't care about the NBA or the golf that just passed, they have been watching this situation so closely and its really interesting to hear all this stuff I didn't hear in the US where if it isn't impacting the US, it doesn't get reported.

And as they pointed out, its not about what the IOC chooses to do first. The issue is the local political and health authorities could basically say its illegal to hold any events such as the Olympics and pull any licenses they have and the IOC is stuck. Due to the time difference and weather there, most athletes were planning to be there by now so they will all be stuck with the costs and logistics and then told sorry go home now. That would be the ultimate piss off moment by the Japanese to the world.

Well, the Olympic competition is underway. That awesome US women's soccer team starts with a resounding defeat at the hands of Sweden, 0-3.

Its just a guess, but I'd bet Railbird will have a gleeful morning.

Rail is like the lone Dont player at the craps table. Only enjoys misery but he can't enjoy it for long because there is always someone enjoying life coming along to piss him off.

Soft cancel. Individual competitions will be canceled as well as mass positive tested athletes DQ'd. Will not only go down as the worse and worse Olympics, gold medals will have no legitimacy, prestige.

And a prediction from the Futures Cat. To seal the infamy legacy. The fuck you variant will be seeded at the Tokyo Olympics. That will put it an historic epic fail level.

I wonder how the books are going to handle the O/U medal counts for posted countries?

I feel like everybody uses mental health as a scapegoat when things aren't going well but when things are going your way, you never hear squat about how great their mental health was heading into or during a competitive match/feature.

But I agree no crowds, no mojo. It doesn't feel like its that important. Overall dud.
