What is wrong with NBC?

To NBC, this 29th Olympiad is all about:

  • Gymnastics
  • Diving
  • Swimming
  • Track and Field
  • Beach Vollyball
  • Mary Corrolo
  • Bobs Costas

Does NBC know that there are OTHER sports in Olympics? What if people are interetsed in watching wrestling, rifling, discus throws, tennis,rowing, table tennis etc?

A couple of times NBC did show very briefly some badminton, a little of weight lifting, a very tiny little coverage of rowing. That is it but NBC wnats us  to watch the heat of 100, 100, 110hurdles but would not show us the finals of wrestling.

That is why we missed a great gold medal win of Henry Cejudo. What a story this guys has. How many people are aware of that?

At  this very moment, 9:43PST on 08/20, NBC is showing some non-consequential award program with gymnast doing their acts and putting up a show, while we miss all other important events. How about just showing the Usain Bolt’s 200m finals?

This is absurd and very selfish execution from NBC. I hate that NBC controls what I should watch from Olympics. We live in on-demand world but we are at their mercy. FCC are  you reading and listening?

Does someone know an internet site where I can watch the game videos?
