    Why do you go to a sports news website and not expect sports news?

    They could have a special Olympics link, they don't need to put that shit right on the home page, right?

    Yeah, I caught that Basketball shit this morning, was able to look away in time not to see the score.

    Fuck these Olympics and NBC for doing a shitty job.

    ESPN is not covering the Olympics, why should they care if they give out the scores?

    Besides with Twitter and Facebook, people will tweet the results as they happen.

    Hey, I'm not even on ESPN - but HC was saying he got 'spoiled' by them the other day about something. I think Michael Phelps losing.

    I understand but welcome to the world of internet.

    If I don't want to know, I simply avoid the internet. Same applies for the World Cup, Euro 2012, etc...

    Which is why, in this day and age of technology, why NBC thinks they can continue to broadcast the events on their own schedule is beyond unbelievable.

    They SUCK! :pissed:

    This is the correct answer right here.

    It's 2012, and NBC thinks that we're still living in 1975. :jj:

    They deserve to take a beating over this coverage.
