Then throw in the AO, then throw in all the other one off events such as the Presidents Cup in 2012, the FINA World Swimming Championships in 2007, the World Cycling Championships in 2010 and everything else, and quite frankly, you have no idea.

Melbourne has been voted the sporting capital of the world numerous times and by more than one org. Link:

So pardon Melbourne if it has to budget a bit. Recently made news that it forks out 30 million a year just to host the F1 GP, but according to Bernie Ecclestone, that's about right so go figure.
Whatever you say, man. We just want you to do as all a favor and pull some strings so that we don't have to watch that commercial anymore.
Consider the set of all sets that have never been considered.
