Good Morning NBC haters

Is this how you feel when you have to watch tape-delayed figure skating while a very important hockey game is also going on at the same time live? Yeah, sorry about that. You'll have to blame NBC for that.

It's been no secret that the Peacock Network has absolutely screwed the pooch when it comes to the Olympics. Horrible programing choices (why am I watching curling), the lack of any suspense (We knew that somebody won gold ten hours before it airs) and a hodge podge of channels (wait, this one is on CNBC not NBC?) has left people furious.

My thoughts? Yeah they're screwing things up. I don't mind the tape delay because the local affiliates still need to get their local programming in, and people aren't going to be able to watch these events at work anyways. But there is absolutely no available live stream on the internet or any other NBC cable channel. They should let the people that want it live, watch it live on the internet and then have the people that come home at 5pm be able to see it during primetime. Just a thought.

And here's an idea... focus on the main sports, Americans winning medals and stay away from crappy fluff news pieces on polar bears in Canada.
