Chicago fell short in its Olympic bid for the 2016 Olympics yesterday, with Rio de Janeiro getting the nod. Many close to the situation feel that it is Milton Bradley's poor attitude and behavior that cost the city of Chicago the 2016 Olympics.

When he heard of this Milton Bradley was apologetic, while at the same time blaming everyone else for his behavior.
"I am sorry that I appear to have cost Chicago the 2016 Olympics," said Bradley.
