IOC President Jacques Rogge needs a reality check. 37 years later and over 1 Billion dollars and the Montreal Olympics were finally paid off. so much for high priced finanical analysts project assumptions. His comments regarding that the City of Vancouver taxpayers will benifiet from the resale of the codo is pure speculation,what crystal ball is he using?How does the City of Vancouver plan to repay each tax payer their profit from the sale as any lender would expect.That was never mentioned. One more thing, Team Canada hockey jerseys have to be changed because Jacques says they are too commerical,some one better tell Nabisco,Kellogs,GM,Ford and the countless others who are paying to take full advantage of the media coverage for profit. Maybe team Canada should wear Tim-Bits jerseys at least it's still Canadian. Get you Head out of the sand Jacques and tell the truth. Oh by the way,your poster boy Michael Phelps,he may be only 23 yrs old as you said and we should forgive him. I agree he has only inflicted pain upon himself and his bank account where your organization inflicts huge finanical burdens on millions of people for decades to come. i suppose that makes you proud of what you are doing.Good Luck.
