The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Is anyone as sick and tired as I am when it comes to a network television station covering the Olympics?

In 30 minutes of television broadcasting you might see 2 minutes worth of actual live coverage, unless of course that live coverage was tape delayed and already happened....

And next we have a touching story of a girl from a small town overcoming great obstacles to be here today competing in her first Winter Olympics as the anchor for the Curling team...and after that we'll take a closer look at some fine dinning options for Olympic goers...up next on your 2010 Winter Olympic coverage...on NBC.

I stopped watching the Olympics a good while ago. NBC may have other channels showing more events...don't know. But, my TV only goes to NBC about once a week anyway.

we got so sick of their coverage, we resorted to watching live on the PC. The Canadians, ESPN Live and Europe all have excellent live streaming coverage. But that does not justify the slap in our faces by NBC....
USA channel showing curling at noon;USA vs Germany.
the only good thing on NBC is thier thursday night line up; community,parks and rec,the office and 30rock.
I've always had the CBC's coverage to fall back on - not US centric and more action-oriented - but the knuckleheads got outbid by a cable co. for Canadian broadcast rights. This totally sucks. And there are so many commercials on the various NBC feeds I'm wondering how they lost so much money. Must of been a fire sale for ad space or something. How annoying would it have been if they had MADE money? Ugh. At least we've got disc golf on local access as a fall back option.
No TV. None. Nada. Cut the cable. Save $$$. More time for Disc Golf!
Chuck, nbc monday night at 8:00, pre-empted for lousy olympic coverage. BLEH !
Preach it Bro!

If I want to watch a show I would rather get it from iTunes or such place. No commercials. I went to the sports bar to watch the super bowl. First commercials I have seen in a year . . . the last time I watched the stupid bowl
Anyone ever been to an Olympics?
Never. But I was just discussing it with my wife. We would love to go.....
Watching live streaming skating right now. Barely any commercials!
My brother went to Atlanta.
Had a high school buddy that was World Whitewater Kayak Champion....
It was cool to watch on TV.
Another brother was married at Lake Placid.
His father in law's house is behind the Olympic Stadium there and worked the Olympics.....
National Broadcasting of Chuck

Most of the personalities hosting the Olympics have less appeal than Morgan wearing an Avatar shirt!!!!
