    In the link Atticus posted, the Sign In button is in the upper right corner.

    The NBCGold has a replay function. I often watch much of it that way. Some times I watch several of the field options and then watch the main Track Events feed (the only one with commentary for standard meets) I can fast forward through to get what I most want to see (I usually do not need to go through introductions, etc.

    My big frustration with NBC Gold is that Uverse does not play nice with it and it will not load. So, I have to watch on my phone - I now have gotten a couple old tablets so I can watch on their bigger screens. But while a small screen is a pain, it provides almost all of the information of the race/event and as gh said that is key. I often avoid the board until I am done watching the replay. Also, this works better when there is more of a world going on around me.

    Clear sign of someone that does not understand a race. Two of the best 800s ever at a champs level are London 2012 and the one where everyone was in it with 50m to go and many were within the 5-meter box.

    As was said before you have to see each part of the race as pieces in a puzzle. If you wan the results, go to the results page. Do you want to watch a chess match by seeing the first two moves and the last two? When I am watching a marathon on tape I try to see several 1-2 minute segments every mile or two to watch the race (2x or 7x speed in between and past ads (except on NBC Gold where they are absent)). [Yes, I keep firm possession of my LDR card]

    That was clearly uncalled for. Try again.

    Sorry if I may have been a prick about what I was trying to say, and Atticus knows more about this sport than I do. My thinking is that if you think that you understand a distance race by seeing the last two laps, I do not think that you have a very good understanding of the race (i.e., that it tells you most everything about a race).

    How a runner gets to those last two laps, and especially that last lap and where they are in that lap and what they have possibly done to their competitors, etc., all of that matters.

    Finally, if you both think that a race is a waste if it goes slow and then finishes very fast and you think that all that really matters are the last two laps, then tell me exactly why you give a dxxx what the first N-2 laps went like?
