    Now we have to get them to do this on Olympic channel, and also work on NBC Gold to do it for field-event breaks.

    What? What other possible interpretation is there of 'you think I was making shit up? [and with a typo that gave a hint of extreme frustration with your questioning his competence - and then you do it yet again. Really?

    By the way, no one here seems to comment on the coverage by FloTrack. It is a much smaller operation and does not nearly as much resources, but they are getting better and better. The did a 5-minute video of the NCAA XC meet that was better than almost anything I have every seen on XC, and better than 95% of things I have seen on Track and Field.

    In the same vein TWalsh posted about, Sanya often says about an athlete AFTER a race, "he/she did just what I expected..."

    If she REALLY expected that, say it BEFORE the race, and look like you really know your stuff!!

    SRR really takes away from my viewing experience. That is all.

    Also, in TN, all the splits were from the finish line, 418, 818, etc.

    I was at the meet and yes, he did move during the mile.

    I mute the broadcast every time SRR starts talking. She says almost nothing of substance. While not politically correct to say, it is obvious that her gender and race played a big role in her being hired. (Certainly not her broadcasting ability.)

    I'll go with the fact that she was a pretty big star during her competitive career.

    The best to be said is that she is not Carol Lewis.
