Visit New Web Site “Chicagoans for Rio”

This site is an absolute blast, filled with information, a great “Back the bid” video and even an online store!

Chicagoans_For_Rio-screen.-small No Games doesn’t know who these folks are but we love their sense of humor. They’ve obviously done their home work. They did expalin themselves to GamesBid.com.

  1. See, my point exactly! –Chicagoians are so self-concerned and Chicagocentric, they do not even care how the Olympics effects other cities!

    In the budget deficit counter, the “deficit of Rio doesn’t even matter for Chicagoians!”

    Oh, please!

    No Games Chicago is a pure reactionary movement. Just as arrogant as Daley and his cronies….

  2. I hate you guys. Are you trying to screw my country? If you think Chicago should not have an Olympics why then Rio?

    We are a country much poorer than the USA, we don’t have education, security is a big issue, and corruption is screaming all over the place.

    Bring the troops back from Iraq and pay this darn thing, just do not screw with a poor country…

  3. A better solution: Why not just abort the Olympics altogether? Why should cities waste billions to showcase freaks hopped up on the latest steroids?

  4. Looking at the two websites anyone can see they were not put together by the same group. Also if you follow the links they lead you to “Rio 2016’s” official site requesting you to help them win the bid. I believe the “Chicagoans for Rio 2016” site, etc. is at least partially funded by “Rio 2016”.

    No Games Chicago has never endorsed or advocated for Olympics in any city. No Games Chicago has been advocating NOT TO HAVE GAMES HERE in Chicago. NGC leaves the decision of where they should take place up to you.

  5. Yes, it may not be created by No Games Chicago, but then why it to their site?! It is an indirect endorsement to this mentality in my view.

    “No Games Chicago has never endorsed or advocated for Olympics in any city. No Games Chicago has been advocating NOT TO HAVE GAMES HERE in Chicago. NGC leaves the decision of where they should take place up to you.”

    No Games denies the Olympics coming to Chicago, which results in it going to another city. If the mantra was “No Games Anywhere,” then this point would be valid. No Games Chicago avoids worrying about the consequences of their position by solely focusing on Chicago, and not the repercussions it will bring other cities.

  6. As long as you are promoting this website on you’re web page, you’re backing Rio’s bid.

    It’s a blast, isn’t it?

  7. ummmm, and Rio doesn’t have the issues you bring up about Chicago?????

    You guys are a joke.

  8. And if you want more:

    That’s why we shouldn’t have these games, we should first invest in education so that people can have a life, and so that these violence levels drop…

    Rio is a better option, agreed.

    That’s a good idea! And we don’t need some spoiled multi-millionaire brats with over bloated shoe endorsements trotting around town like they own it. Sorry guys, we won’t be able to afford those shiny $200 running shoes of yours. Let alone those $1,000+ a pop olympic event tickets to see you have a Gillette moment for some gold medal.

  11. This website is a fraud. GamesBids.com did an investigation…

    http://www.gamesbids.com/eng/olympic_bids/2016_bid_news/1216134700.html

    Did NGC work with these frauds from Rio? How classy!

  12. The post above happened yesterday morning in Rio, for those who don’t speak Portuguese, a guy kidnapped a woman, but the thing is that the kidnapper was handling a grenade, yes a GRENADE!

    That’s a very good Olympic place to go, it’s really a BLAST!

  13. I can think of a real good blast of a way to waste $15 gigabucks: Send George W Bush on a one man one way mission to Mars to make him the governor. The whole world would LOVE to watch the rocket blast off with Bush 2 onboard. 3 2 1 And LIFTOFF!!!! Cyanara, arsehole! Na Na Na Hey Hey GOODBYE!!!
