The fight for the future of the Olympic Stadium
I don't think anyone expected the decision on the future of the Olympic Stadium to be quite so noisy and divisive.
The main point of this post is to give you a chance to express your views here - which you can do at greater leisure now the decision has been postponed - on whether it's West Ham or Spurs taking over the site in Stratford. But first, on the day we heard about the delay, some quick thoughts from me on what the brouhaha is showing us.
I should say as a BBC staffer I'm neutral on issues of public policy, and I've no footballing allegiance to either club.
But first and most obviously, it's a very tight race. I don't believe we'd be hearing from the high-level participants currently flooding the airwaves - Keith Mills on Friday, Seb Coe on Sunday, Craig Reedie today - if the issue were settled.
The Olympic Stadium is a key part of the 2012 legacy in London's east end
Second, to use one of my favourite cliches - two things can be true.
It is unarguable that the promise made in Singapore was that there'd be an athletics legacy in East London. There can be no doubt about the commitments on an athletics track, even though my colleague David Bond has shown that the original idea is no longer on the table.
But it's also true that a football stadium with an athletics track wouldn't in all honesty be anyone's first choice - and the competing effective soundbite was from Harry Redknapp, with his comments: "Try to mix football and athletics and you end up with a great big bowl of nothing" and "I hate going to grounds where there is a running track to get past before you see Subbuteo-sized footballers through your opera-style binoculars."
This is turning into one of those occasions when you're pleased it's someone else making the choice. But there is, of course, another factor to bear in mind - and that's money.
If we're talking about the Singapore promises, one of them was about the cost of the Games and in 2005 it was estimated at £2.4 billion.
By 2007 that figure had risen to an estimated £9.3 billion and that level of increase remains eye-watering, even though it was blunted politically by the huge sums bandied about after the credit crunch and the banking collapse.
So actually for taxpayers in the UK there will be another promise on which they want some return.
At the moment we don't know how the real financial numbers add up, but expect this to be a big part of the debate about legacy: what most people will want is an Olympic Stadium that works in a Park that attracts visitors - and at the lowest cost to the public purse.
