Television coverage of the Athens Olympics begins tomorrow. NBC plans to use all of its free-to-air and cable networks, boasting for the first time to show all the sports of the Games.
The purpose of this thread is to record all the complaints directed at NBC by Dopers who will not get a chance to see their favorite sport, favorite athlete, favorite country (other than the USA), etc., since NBC has a history of talking heads and endless up close and personal cutaways.
Will America really see the opening ceremonies? Or will we see the crap NBC pulled during the Sydney games? Now’s your chance to reserve your favorite gripe after the opening ceremonies. Will we see any athletes other than Americans? Any indepth stories about the Thorpedo? Will the Iraqi soccer team take center stage as the feel good team that NBC will focus its energies and make endless connection to the war in Iraq?
Sure, NBC has its American television networks for its American audience. So will we see anything other than Americans?
Your best pit complaints can start here tomorrow.
