I really like the stark simplicity of the Madrid logo...and Moscow looks like it's planning to share the games with Canada.

I like the NYC logo the best... how clever is that?!

I do really like the typography on the Madrid logo, but the flame is akward. London's is incredibly busy.

I agree that NYC's logo is best. Very creative...

However, how does NYC deserve the games? The credentials are based on feasability of pulling off the games, game venues, transportation issues, sponsor moneys, and recent games in the country, among others. Considering how Atlanta had the 1996 Summer Games and SLC had the Winter Games in 2002, it's too soon for another American Olympics. Both Paris and London are far more deserving based solely on the fact they haven't hosted since everyone in my province got electricity.

But it all comes down to who gives the best presentation or lines the IOC's pockets the most...(I'm talking to you, Salt Lake City. <_< )

I don't know how you could really pick, none of them really stand out and I'm betting NYC is ahead because it's on our continent.

I've got a tie between NYC and London. The Statue of Liberty / Athlete concept is great. And I really dig the colored ribbon in the London logo, which represents the Thames.

I'm betting that London gets the games.

also from the NYC one....

It is a alleged rumor that the 2 color boxes are subliminally representative of the Twin Towers (since one is slightly taller than the other)

I'm a big fan of the London logo. It's something that's pretty cool without looking abstract. Of course I've been seen the logo before and it looks even better when compared to the other cities. Madrid's looks like someone just ran over to his computer and through something together on paint.

I guess you can see it like that.

But here's a logo that would prove that theory wrong

In all honesty, will the IOC give the 2012 Games to NYC?????

The IOC may think that NYC isn't still secure.

The damn Osama Bin Laden is free in someplace in that world.

If it's not NYC, it will most likely be Moscow, In my opinion.

If Paris gets it, look for some shady shenanigans.....

Great bit of trivia/rumor NewYawkSeahawk! Very interesting.

I'd rank the logos:

1) New York City

2) Paris

3) London

4) Madrid

5) Moscow

As for who will end up hosting the games, I think that they'll go to either Paris or London, with Paris being my early gut instinct as to which city will actually be named host.

That said, sentimentally I'm rooting for either London or New York City.
