I can't believe how bad NBC is doing with these Olympics. I mean, is
everyone as sick of watching damn swimming and gymnastics as I am ????
There has been virtually no televised boxing at all. ABC did a 100 %
better job of televising the Olympics when they had it. It sickens me
that NBC also has the rights to the 2002 games in Sydney along with the
2006 games. UGH !!!

Nick,
Prelim's and heats (other than sprinting etc.) will not be part of your
(NBC's) coverage... you know as well as I do the thing on the big US
three networks is the finals, the big event, the showdown, blah, blah
blah... lucky for us in Canada we have English CBC and French CBC which
show different events... and boxing is big in Quebec so between the 2
arms of our national broadcasting network we are getting quite a bit of
the boxing starting with the 1st rounders... NBC... which we get as well,
will show the fights when the eliminators are on or medals are to be
decided... that is how you guys cover everything, as far as I can tell...
thank god, here in the north we still get to see HOW THE ATHLETES get
into medal contention... our fights are live and usually repeated on the
late night package...
