Didn't Bach say something along the lines of he didn't want to cancel the olympics and disappoint the athletes?

I'm no olympian, but personally, I would rather have had the games cancelled or postponed feeling everyone was on a pevel playing field rather than have the games go ahead and then lose my opportunity due to sheer chance while others get to compete.

I wonder how many athletes will feel severely depressed during snd after these games.

@Numan

Is it false? I really don't know. Apparently the US gymnast that became infected was vaccinated. I don't know when, but that seems not so promising.

It's the same all around. You know none of them are actually footing the bill. Their taxpayers can pay for their flight and whatever else until they get to Japan and then we can comp them on everything with our own taxes, because why not?

Welcome dignitaries. Are the Japanese people happy to have you? Oh, you don’t care one way or the other? Seems legit.

@mokuyobi

I'm happy for the athletes and hope they can enjoy themselves!

Me too! Imagine the exhilaration of playing in the olympics in front of a crowd like that! It's probably like nothing they have ever imagined! I mean, I remember my little league days and, wow, FIFTY people?!?! They must be enjoying the hell out of this experience!

Posted in: Bach says canceling Tokyo Olympics not an option despite COVID See in context

I wonder if it's possible to sue the IOC for gross negligence if everything explodes.

I mean, if the JP government can't help those of us struggling to make it through this on scraps, then maybe the people can recoup some of our tax dollars afterward from the organization they gave our money to.

Wiggle room. They can hold anyone they don't like accountable, while allowing others to slide if they wish.

Posted in: Heatstroke or COVID-19? Similar symptoms could confuse at Olympics See in context

Save this post for posterity as it's a nearly guaranteed outcome.

When it all goes with a confluence heat, humidity, Covid19 and general understaffing at hospitals, it will just be Jgov blaming the IOC and the IOC blaming Jgov in an endless circle jerk until it all just goes away when the next "scandal" erupts.

The lives lost will be a footnote, at best, and citizens will contiue to let them get away with it.

Posted in: Osaka hospitals buckle under COVID-19 onslaught See in context

I have lived in Osaka for years. Durig the first two SOEs, people did everything asked of them for the most part. This latest SOE, I think everyone just reached their breaking point and only a minority of citizens stayed home.

Basically, no change.

But the numbers have steadily decreased (according to reports) the past couple of weeks. However, we still dozens of COVID related deaths reported daily and continue to see articles about hospitals being overwhelmed.

BY WHOM?

How are these falling numbers resulting in greater death and hospitilization rates?

I have felt for a long time that the Tokyo numbers are being manipulated, but only recently have I begun to feel that Kansai's results are now also being carefully controlled.

I just don't buy it any more. Call me a conspiracy theorist, or an idiot, but things just don't add up.

There must be someone that will eventually come out with information proving that things are not on the up and up, and I truly hope anyone and everyone involved gets their just desserts.

None of this bowing and groveling for a bit only to step out of politics and into a cushy position on some company's board of directors. I want the guilty parties to waste away in prison for their complete lack of care for humanity and their ovwrwhelming greed.

Posted in: Coates: Tokyo Olympics to go ahead even in state of emergency See in context

He acts as if he has sole control of the choice, regardless of the peoples' wishes and, the way he states it, even without regard for the government's choice were they tochange their mind in holding the games.

I would absolutely bust a gut if they all showed up and were just denied entry at immigration.
