im watching the olympics but am mostly dissapointed with the event coverage on the television. i know the big stations like airing the main events that bring the most viewers. i dont mind watching swimming ie Canada, Lochte vs Phelps or any other mainstream sports but its the greatest weakness of the games coverage. you can consider this post as a rant if you please, i feel as if it is one persoanlly.
they air such mainstream events on tv all the time regardles if its the olympics or not. i dont think ive ever been 100% satisfied with any summer olympics television coverage. they dont show any "fringe" sports. these events are just as important as the mainstream events but theres less public interest in them. im talking about table tennis, archery, badminton, shooting and other such sports. they never air such events on the big stations whenever the mainstream sports are present. these sports are lucky enough to even air for the final rounds or even be mentioned. i personally would love to watch such events on tv. id love to see the qualifying to semis on such events but the stations dont even bother to do so most of the times. the stations claim to show full coverage of the olympic events but they're quite happy to (for the most part) ignore tv coverage of the other sports that dont have the same level of viewers as the popular ones.
it seems the only way to see the whole range of events during the olympics is to hop on an airplane and get some event tickets to the other events not aired on main tv stations. to me thats just not fair to the many millions of people interested in the olympics.
