NAS Praise to the Post For Pointing Out NBC's foul up!!!

Today, in the Sports section of my local paper, the Columia Missourian, I
saw a "Perspective" article written by the Washington Post's Leonard
Shapiro, entitled "End justifies means for NBC".  The majority of the
article talked of statistics and ratings, etc. But at the end there was a
series of things he loved and hated from NBC's coverage of the Olympics.  
Here's the one HATE that made all but too much sense,

"HATE:  The fact that NBC virtually ignored women's soccer..., giving us
video-taped look-ins when live action, even in small doses, clearly was
possible.  NBC's miniscule goals-only coverage of Nigeria's historic
men's soccer victory over Argentina also was inexcusable."

It's great to see groups in the media bashing others because of LACK of
soccer coverage!!!

cheers,
scottie
