The swimmers fell well below the media's expectations, hell so what the media fell well below mine.

I ask you could 9 have done a worst job at the their coverage? I found the lego coverage on youtube better. Thank goodness for the internet.

I think we aught to be thankful for what we are getting now.

Look at the history of track, & you will see we were right up there in the amateur days. It was after the professional era, & the discovery of athletics by africans, where ever they live, that we disappeared of the scene, apart from the odd exception.

Just wait until they discover swimming, & we will just have horsing around & sailing left to us. Hell we can't even shoot straight any more, with gun or bow. I blame John Howard for that!

I do have to agree with you somewhat Kenny. It is obviously cheaper to conduct interviews, than pay for footage of actual events. I now have Mr Bolt linked with our Julia. Instant change of channel at the merest hint of them appearing. Fawning journos I do not find attractive, about the same as their subjects.

The excuses will be far more entertaining than the games.
The first jokes are already overdue or am I out of touch ?

In my opinion, the fact that we seem to 'need' excuses is far more telling than the excuses themselves.
