NBC has got to be giving the ABSOLUTE WORST coverage
I have ever seen for any televised sporting event, bar none!
They cut to commercials 8 times in a 30 minute period and
put those g-ddammed USELESS animiated preview-blurbs in the
lower right hand corner of the screen for 30+ seconds
when they come back with coverage.
Bob Costas' is a f--king retard. I wish someone would stuff
a g-ddamed package of tube socks down his throat to shut
him the phuck up. (..as well as that ditzy *** with him in the
anchor's chair too!)
I AM CURRENTLY WATCHING ON THE DISH ON THE
GREECE TV STATIONS (..AND OTHERS) AS NBC TELEVISION'S
COVERAGE OF THE OLYMPICS IS SO COMPLETELY F-CKED
UP THE A-S AS TO BE UNWATCHABLE AND UTTERLY
DISTRACTING FROM THE SPORT/SPIRIT OF THE GAMES.
If I was an NBC/GE shareholder, I would be shitting bricks
right now and would issue a "sell" order to my broker first
thing in NYC tomorrow as NBC has completely screwed
up Athens 2004 for USA viewers. Get a small dish and
watch other channels which are far superiour in their coverage
