Just watching the men's shot put. There is one American guy who looks like he's walked straight out of the trailer park who claims to be the fastest man in the world over 150kg. Another American used to be known as the Unknown Competitor because he would compete in a mask and cape.

This is awesome.

Holy crap. Why bother wearing anything at all?

An d as much as I have been bashing CH 9 I will give kudos to the commentator working the diving. And I don't mean Slater. He's a bogan tool. The colour guy knows his stuff and is presenting it in such a way as to not come across as a jingoistic twat. He's critical without being condescending, giving the viewer enough information to understand why the judges are awarding the scores they are.

In ch9's defence foxtel got most of the rights. So they prob don't have much to choose from. front up and get foxtel IMO. If your are a serious sport nut it's a no-brainier.

Nine is the primary rights holder. They've onsold coverage to Foxtel to defer the $120 million they spent. No surprise considering the incestuous relationship between 9 and Foxtel.

Nine can show whatever they want, whenever they want.

Why does that make me an idiot? You're the one constantly sooking over the coverage. So stop being a fucking baby. I thought the coverage was fine, they showed enough of everything that was going on. Most Australians don't give two fuck about a Canadian gold medal, but many watch the NBA and like to see how USA will perform.

Silver in long jump is great! Another silver and bronze in the pool too, 12 silvers is a good effort.

I have had Foxtel for a decade with the sports channels, have had no problems with previous Olympics but for London 2012 I cannot have the Olympic channels because apparently the cabling in my building doesn't support however they're broadcasting it this time.

It's not that simple for everyone even if you have Foxtel

Not many times I agree with Derp, but I'd much rather watch the Dream Team with their NBA stars or Australians in the diving, than watch Canada win a gold medal in trampolining. Like anyone would give a fuck about that

My point isn't about missing a Canadian gold medal. It's more about what channel 9 shows or doesn't show. It's just not consistent. Why show the men's trampoline, including the boring compulsory routine, for most of the competitors, but nothing of the women's event?

And I will agree that they could have shown more of the basketball and focused too much on diving and commercials.

Nah, just having a sook at Ch9's inconsistent coverage. I think the copious amounts of wine I had last night must have led me to believe that Ch 9 would get better. oops.
