I'm sorry but this question doesn't make sense.

This guy has some outlandish "campaign" to bring the Olympics to New Orleans and he continues to bring up things like building new stadiums for it. Anyhow... To the OP:

You do know about the millions of $$$$$ in improvements they're making to the Superdome, right? It's not going anywhere anytime soon. As for soccer, the Jesters barely fill up the Pan American Stadium at City Park.

Why, please show your intelligence of how this will not work.

I can step in here, busta, and it's not like you don't KNOW, but it gets really F'ing hot in NO.
Athletes don't want to compete where they can't hardly breathe. They had the track and
field Oly trials down at Tad Gormley one year and it about killed the lot of em. NO would be
the perfect city to hold the Olympics in from a fun and people standpoint, but it's highly,
environmentally impractical.

Can you imagine the level of corruption that would ensue if that much money was to start flowing through N.O. ? As mentioned before , the weather is horrible . Not enough venues , too much crime , the list goes on . Won't happen .

Hypothetically, if they can do it in Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, and Seoul; then they can do it in New Orleans. The only thing that really stops this from working is lack of infrastructure and the fact that any new venues would have to be built in the East or on the Westbank. If Rio can get the Olympics apparently they aren't as concerned about crime as they used to be, or something went down in a back room.

I heartily agree with this statement. Rio is overrun with crime.
NO can handle the infrastructure AND the building, but I think that no rational person
thinks it's a good idea. See what I did there?
HAhahaha
In fact I would say hosting the summer Olympics in NO is every bit as viable as
holding the winter Olympics in NO. IT IS all about money and ratings, but the athletes
get some consideration I am sure, and there would be no fewer than 3 deaths from the
heat I would wager.
