why does there always seem to be controversy on where the summer olympics are held?

in the past few summer olympics namely this year and the year they had it in beijing, many people complained that it was super polluted. some even doubted they would be able to clean the city up on time.

    Because of shady deals (not that that's just an IOC problem; FIFA are at least as bad) made.

    Because of the BIG sums of money spent to enter a bid.

    Because of the HUGE sums spent by the one with the winning bit - hundreds of millions to build stadiums that are really only used for the event and have little practical use for the local community (because the venues are simply too damn big for economical local use).

    Its always like that because some fans like to moan and the media are like exaggerate on things to sell newspapers.
