I'm placing my money on Paris...well if I could gamble, I would.

I voted London, because then it would be easier for me to go and see some stuff.

I picked the one that I want to win it rather than the one I think would, because I haven't the foggiest idea who is going to win. (Moscow, they're due.)

as long as it's not NY I am happy. Traffic stand-stills and new stadium plans are the last thing we need.

When is it going to be in South America or Africa?

Boo Hiss.

I vote for London, because the TV coverage will be best from there.

Yeah I hope it's in London - They'll probably make a dedicated digital channel for each of the stadiums =P
I voted for New York, just because I read an article on it all in the New Yorker and thought of it when I read this.

Moscow! More of an ego-boost to the Russians :p

Madrid is a pretty good choice too.

Not London or New York.

I want it to be in London, it's truly an amazing city. I certainly DON'T want it to be in New York, those people are already so full of themselves. Given that, I think it's gonna be Paris. All my sources have indicated that is far and away the favorite at this point in the process. Paris is currently the favorite at all online betting sites, often by huge margins, being anywhere from 1-4 to 2-9, closest I saw London was 7-2 at a place that offered 1-6 Paris. On the other side of things, Moscow is normally rated 100-1 or worse, not a good sign for the Russians.

London would be nice, might actually see something then..

I don’t care. You Europeans can have it. Let you governments waste money on pointless garbage. Greece is going to have higher taxes for the next ten years because of the Olympics in Athens. No thank you.

I imagine Paris has the best shot. It put the best bid in after all.

New York's bid was a joke. When they asked where the stadium was, the best that the bid team could come up with at the time was something about maybe building one. It has since been cancelled, and we had to ask for another fifteen minutes to pitch plan B. (Another stadium that is not going to be built).

It should be in greece every time.
