Hi to All
This in the Morning Paper.
The total price tag for the Olympics has grown in the last two years from $5.5 billion US to more than $7.2 billion.
Some analysts predict the final cost could climb to $12.5 billion.
A record $1.5 billion is being spent on security alone.
What are your feelings on this? Personally i think it has passed the stage of making any sense.
My personal opinion is with all the Drugs being used by the Athletes it no longer represents what it once did and is simply now about Money.
The Athletes strive to Win for future Endorsements and Show Fees they can get for entering other Events after the Olympics, due to their Draw Factor.
The Costs to prevent Terrorist Attacks has burgeoned to ridiculous highs and overall the Monies could be better spent on more beneficial Social Programs.
Leave the sports Events to smaller venues that presently exist imho.
What Say You???
