    NBC was too cheap to hire analyst for these sports.

    Also, anything they planned to show later was not streamed live. I assume this NBC resource was the olympic web site that cooter was referring too? And it was great for the track and field qualifying rounds and the minor sports. So maybe they'll have all the track and field there for 2012? :twisted:

    They did not have any track heats or field prelims. I don't recall what they webcast, but it was nothing I cared for.
