I have 4 words to say then I will leave.

Not one single minute.

Okay. 3 more words.

Bob Kostas sucks.

/enjoy the Olympics. I hope Pooty Poot is found in bed with the gay Men's curling squad from Canada while they are brooming his privates
/not that there's anything wrong with gay curling

redmid17: I "hate" it so much that I only watched the opening.

GF: "Don't you want to watch the opening ceremonies?"
Me: "No, it's a worse version of a boring parade. All they do is walk in to music."
GF: "Whatever, I'm going to turn it on and watch it."
*5 minutes lateR*
GF: "Okay you were right. This is really boring."

I might watch some hockey in the later rounds, but I really only like watching a few olympic sports (hockey, soccer, basketball, volleyball) and those are mostly summer ones anyway.


Yeah, you missed a hell of a show. There were some interesting bits before the athletes walked in, and then there was a awesome floor show. The Russians projected really cool scenery on the floor of the stadium and had the actors and dancers moving around in it while the scenery changed around them. The technical ability to do that was cool, but the coordination and actual show using that produced one of the best opening shows ever.

OK, I just saw this image for the first time about 20 minutes ago here on fark, what's the story behind it? Is this a commentator? Is he trying to specifically make a point about the Russia homophobia thing, or has he been dressing like this for years? I just don't know who the guy is.

mr_a: We watched hours of the slope snowboard stuff- but not once did anyone explain the scoring. Do all the ramps count for all that much? Is distance worth more or less than style? What about cool goggles? Maybe it is not obvious, but many of us watch events we have never seen before (or see very seldom) when we watch the Olympics.


As I understand it, there are literally no scoring standards for slopestyle at all.  The judges watch, then they make up a number based on any criteria they, as individuals, have.  The end.  So, cool goggles -- maybe.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think I really like that.
 
2014-02-10 02:32:33 PM

Imperialism: The problem with the winter olympics is that there's very little direct competition. With the exception of speed skating, how many events feature people going against each other at the same time? If you watch luge, you see "guy going fast around a corner, fast around another corner, there's his time. Now here's the next guy going fast around a corner..." If you watch running or swimming it's "Okay, we're gonna fire this gun. Swim/run back here as fast as you can." Seeing one athlete run by another is way more rewarding than seeing a skiier hit a checkpoint 0.09 seconds faster than the current leader. There's no "photo finish" potential at the Winter games (again, aside from speed skating and cross-country skiing)


Yep, there are few actual races.. even Speed Skating is a timed event (other than short-track).  It's boring.

Then there are so many judged events and the stupidly silly trick skiing/boarding events.  Oh he turned around 3 times and put a finger in his anus.  That's a bonus of 5.729.

All of the scoring is so complicated, I don't think they know how to explain it.

Really, you just want to watch the end of the ceremonies, all the spectacle and technical show, right? Or is that at the beginning? I can never remember, but it's the only part of the opening ceremonies I watch...
 
2014-02-10 02:34:11 PM
Whatever.  The winter Olympics are for women and gays.  I have no desire to watch dudes in spandex riding a sled or people prancing about ice dancing.  BTW, Sidney Crosby is the favorite for the gold in ice dancing.  Hockey (both men's and women's) is the only thing worth watching.  And even that annoys the crap out of me because it jacks around with the the NHL schedule.

Skiing AND shooting.


I think the biathlon would be more fun to watch if they could take out the competition...

I actually prefer the Winter Olympics over the Summer competitions. There are fewer 'team' sports and more individual competitions, and I enjoy watching the alpine events especially. The biathlon competitions this weekend were actually entertaining to watch, but then NBC decided to show them both live in the morning and then recorded in the afternoon. Apparently quite a few of the matches are being played at night at these Olympics late enough to be seen live if you're near a TV during the daytime.

What bugs me the most are the inevitable puff pieces and build-ups for upcoming taped competitions. Last night's promo for the men's downhill final, they mentioned the eventual winner, Bode Miller and an "up and coming" young American skiier. I told my wife that even if I didn't know that Miller hadn't won, I would have known something was up because no way would they have mentioned the other American skiier unless he did something notable, and wouldn't have mentioned the Norwegian skiier at all.

And of course there was ice skating, and ice skating, and MORE ice skating, then there was ice DANCING. They should at least have people throwing things at them while they're performing their routines, just to make it more interesting...

From my view, it looks like I didn't miss anything, though obviously there are a lot of people who enjoy that stuff. I've never really been one for parades, fireworks displays, et al. Not really up my alley.

Maybe even one not involving the US, or is that madness.

In addition to all the other stuff for which they deserve hate, I really hate how NBC went from a nice grid layout for the streaming video on their website for the 2012 Summer Olympics to "Put everything on one page in a list, with no semblance of order, and make that page impossible to find from the main page".

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Somebody in the Fark thread suggested that they have an SAP-like button that would block the announcers and let the audience enjoy the pageantry for what it is.


Step One:  Set up 5.1 surround sound.  Step Two:  Unplug center channel speaker.
(Suggested by a Farker long ago; works pretty well for football and baseball, but haven't tried yet for the Olympics.)

I feel like the rage could be split between NBC and the IOC.  Maybe someone who understands more about building fanbases can explain:  Why doesn't the IOC *require* events to be covered (like, "gold-winning performance must be aired; all performances by your country's athletes must be aired" at a minimum), or something?  You'd think they'd want to make sure their events were being broadcast, preferably in a reliable and accessible way that garners interest and draws in new fans, before granting *sole* ownership to one broadcaster!  If you're not going to do that, why not allow competition, or just sell off "you get [something that many watch] but you -must- air [something with a smaller audience]"?

But, specifically, NBC, WTF?  You have 3? 5? a brazillion? channels.  Why am I seeing pantloads of figure skating and very little else?  And, really, who gives a flying fark about the human interest stuff -- the sporting event, you know, could actually be made interesting, if you had any respect for the sport, the athletes and your audience.

Then again, if it didn't pull viewers of some kind, they'd be doing something else.

What exactly are you all biatching about?  These were the events that occurred yesterday:

 -  Alpine Skiing - Men's Downhill
 -  Biathlon - Women's Sprint
 -  Cross-Country - Men's Skiathlon
 -  Figure Skating - Team - Men Free
 -  Ice Hockey - Women - Group B
 -  Luge - Men's Singles
 -  Ski Jumping - Men's Normal Hill Individual
 -  Snowboard - Ladies' Slopestyle - Semifinal
 -  Speed Skating - Ladies' 3000m

On a lazy, snowy Sunday yesterday, I decided to stay home and watch the Olympics all day. I saw all of these events except for luge and Group B women's ice hockey, but it may have been on MSNBC or some other sister network.

And for everyone complaining about not being able to see it in real time, NBC has been showing events in real-time from 1am - 4am if you're so hard-pressed to pull an all-nighter to watch speed skating semifinals

So what exactly is the problem with NBC's coverage?

dripping with sarcasm: I quit watching when the networks (NBC et. al) decided I'd rather see features about the Olympics. I don't care about the heartwarming struggles to get to this point. Mommy and Daddy had to drive you to the rink every day. Oh boo farking hoo. You fell down and broke your coccix, big farking deal. Everyone competing had struggles. Just quit talking and show the damn event.  Show the damn thing live. I want to know when it happens, not 10hrs later. It has been too much to ask so I quit watching.

NBC's daytime/live coverage is pretty good, as is the coverage on their various subchannels (NBCSN, etc.)

It's the primetime coverage that has always sucked balls. Not just NBC. CBS back in the 90s was even worse.

The primetime "coverage" doesn't treat the olympics as sport, but mostly as entertainment/reality show/travelogue, etc. I generally ignore it and try to watch/record the daytime if possible or watch online later.

Saw a tweet a while back -- something like "Keep the Today Show out of my primetime olympics".

Pretty much it in a nutshell.

When I watched the women's mogul finals, they showed the Japanese chick, the two Canadians, and skipped the other two women in the final before showing Hannah Kearney.  Before her run, I was all "Oh, fark, she's gonna screw up and lose, thats why they showed the Japanese skiier."  Sadly, that's close to what happened.

Bob Costas.  (I agree, the daytime coverage is very good- I was watching men's curling earlier today live streaming w/o commentary, now I'm watching the women's curling w/commentary on NBCsports and I really appreciate it). Also, the live streaming is really easy to use- someone above mentioned changing the way you find it on their website though and I agree, that sucks.

The primetime coverage is cringe worthy though. They had some woman handicapping the team figure skating competition as if we were friggen 3 year old. "this checkmark in this box means that USA is strong in the men's singles competition" YES I KNOW HOW TO READ A GRID. MAYBE TELL ME WHY YOU PUT A CHECK THERE.

Curling is definitely not a sport.  One of my tests of whether or not something is a sport is whether or not they can do it while smoking or getting liquored up.  If the answer is yes to either of those questions it is a hobby.  Golf is a perfect example of that, which brings up another test:  Can a 70 year old guy compete in it?  If the answer is yes it is just some old fart jacking around in the grass hitting balls around.

Winter is much more dangerouser!  And more skill-oriented, in my opinion.  There's definitely more events in Summer...so there's that.

BizarreMan: ancker: I know I didn't miss anything because of the commercial break, but why did they need to cut to commercial with only 60 seconds left in the race? Some robot is probably following some predetermined commercial break schedule, but still, they managed to kill every ounce of excitement I had built up in the 10 minutes I had been watching. It's like cutting to commercial between the 2nd and 3rd outs in the 9th of the 7th game of the World Series....

They got you to watch a commercial, and some fluff about some other sport.  They held you hostage.


I knew there were victims Involved Now I know who they are. The hostages.
