Just as Chicago tries to ride out one storm buffeting its bid to host the 2016 Olympic Games, it could face another problem: possible backlash from a money-related dispute between the U.S. Olympic Committee and the International Olympic Committee.

"I don't see how this can help," IOC Executive Board member Richard Carrion of Puerto Rico said via telephone Wednesday.

He also thinks if powerful IOC members are angry enough, it could result in behind-the-scenes lobbying against Chicago.

"I'm sure Chicago is horrified," he said. "I would be."

University of Chicago economist Allen Sanderson said IOC members may be inclined to shun Chicago's bid if additional controversies pile atop these two.

"The IOC just doesn't want the hassle," Sanderson said.

Maybe someone can get the IOC to watch these great anti-Olympic videos I came across on the YouTube. Check it:
