    2024 Paris Olympics - not the official thread

    Anyone else think this is going to be the final epic french flavored shitshow nail in the coffin for the Olympic "movement"?

    Transit strikes, trash strikes, black bloc weenies rioting in the streets, this is going to be awesome.

    Maybe some Saudi group should buy the IOC too?

    I'm sure there have been discussions. Would the IOC take a one time buyout or just continue on their current path of lapping up huge $$$ from countries desperate to make a name for themselves every 2 years?

    Any timing on when the official thread will drop?

    They're tied up for the moment with golf, then they may turn their attention to FIFA before getting around to the IOC.

    2024 Paris Olympics - not the official thread

    I’m not sure they’ll buy FIFA. I think they are just buying all the teams and players. And the stadiums. And the jerseys. And the equipment.

    Hey - when they buy and trademark the term “football” will the NFL have to pay licensing rights fees?

    Johnny Football becoming Johnny The Oblique Shaped Ball?

    Hmmm.

    Doesn't exactly roll of the tongue.

    Well we already can’t use Super Bowl. So now it’ll be the Big Oblong Ball Game.

    Should be fine.

    I wonder what a Saudi-Johnny Manziel partnership would look like?

    Time to shoot your shot with the Paris 2024 mascot!

    In connection with the Saudi buyout of soccer discussion above, it appears they let one slip away, Lionel Messi to Inter Miami

    It only LOOKS like they let one get away. Men In Blazers made the comment yesterday that it's the first step in the Saudis just buying MLS.


    I laughed.

    Are we sure this isn't the official thread? Because it feels like the official thread.

    The unofficial official thread as it were? I vote yes. Unless SA has a suitcase full of cash for me to change my vote

    Aren't there minimum standards for official threads?

    If not this place would be nothing but chaos.

    The official thread club wouldn't have any of our threads as a member.
