that's so unfair, and it leads to one of the most aggravating things about the olympics. the way they kept asking those 4 swimming guys what went wrong over and over was **** disgusting. same goes for any other time they asked any other Australian the same thing. they just lost in the olympics, they don't need or want to talk about it with you as they're still exhausted from the race. it's channel 9 pushing for emotion and drama and I **** hate it.
overall the coverage has been fairly disappointing. they have 3 channels and are only showing one thing at a time.
they have been showing a few different sports, but the amount of rowing, swimming and equestrian they showed is amazing and unnecessary. when you listen to the commentary on the rowing you know there's nothing to show or say. the final part is the only interesting thing, and even then they end up saying the same thing over and over trying to add excitement to the race and just end up sounding like idiots.
I imagine they show swimming and rowing because lots of people like it because Australia typically goes relatively well in them. well they were wrong and they made the coverage worse because of it.
I have been watching quite a bit and I don't think I saw anything of some sports like handball, weightlifting, badminton, fencing. to me that's what the olympics is about. watching sports that you never have a chance to watch. not watching the same **** over and over (swimming, equestrian, rowing).
