I totally disagree with you. My cousin has a market stall in the east end of London and since the Stadium opened several months before the main games he business has quadrupled. I bet you have been nowhere near Stratford have you?
He tells me it's the best thing to have happened to him and the surrounding area, locals say it has really revitalized the whole area and not just around the immediate Stadium. Personally I think your whole attitude towards everything connected to the Olympics has been typical of a lot of people, but most have not even been here to see what is actually been going on
