So, your upset that they didn't focus much on the other events but rather chose to highlight the hyped athletes like Ohno, Vonn, Davis, White, etc? Am I correct?

It may be just me but NBC's coverage of these Olympics has been very poor..I'll leave at that before I get slammed and egged. I probably will get bashed anyways..Oh well.
Why would you get bashed? I find your view interesting.
I've been watching it but I haven't really found issues technically with it. I don't like how many of the big events air later then they should.
My biggest issue is that Days never promoted the preemption last Monday and then planned all of it's sweeps stuff to go along with the Olympics when many people either had the show shifted around on their affiliate or they didn't get to see it at all unless they watch online or on Soapnet. Stupid. The show should've planned it better and/or not counted the two weeks. Now, they could lose all the momentum they had.
I'm just surprised how NBC hasn't shown any events with the exception of this upcoming hockey game, when Lindsey Vonn won gold.
Heck..what shocked me the MOST out of everything was they didn't show the Men's Hockey of Canada vs. USA game LIVE on NBC - it was other stuff that took place earlier in the day..But yeah...Come tommrow, I wonder if it will even air the Women's hockey of Canada vs. USA for GOLD. :shrug:
NBC has covered past Olympics so much better... Then again, I'm bias because I'm watching all my CTV coverage LOL.
I've noticed that in the past decade. They tend to focus on a few athletes and everything else sort of is slopped together like it doesn't matter. Seriously, when you get a night with none of those athletes on and no women's figure skating, it looks like they could care less.
