Thread Title Should Be...How Do You Feel About NBC Olympic Coverage...sorry...
I know that in light of the Oswald for Al Michaels deal, we have warm and fuzzy feelings right now for NBC. But every two years when we have the Olympic games, I'm reminded of something. I really don't like the way they cover the Games.
It's bad enough that with the time difference between here and Torino, everything's tape delayed on tv anyway (and then, of course, delayed three hours more for the West Coast).
It's worse, of course, because of the way they can arrange the events to string you along for hours while filling time with features that go on forever. The network says they need those, for the audience that doesn't know a figure skating triple-lutz from an Al Lutz.
I like Bob Costas and much of their crew there...but if it's like their past several presentations, I probably won't be watching that much.
Wish I had one of those great big satellite dishes to pick up the Canadian Broadcasting Company...more event coverage, even LIVE as it happens sometimes (what a concept).
