Is it my imagination (Alzheimers?) or did NBC primetime coverage omit the rings competition?
While doing a search I found photos of men on the apparatus, but I can't remember seeing it covered at all. Did they show it for 5 mins and skip the rest of it?
Very curious. Thank you
As a men’s gymnastics fan, I too find they are not covering enough of the man’s events. They covered all 4 of the girls’ events. Do they figure that the guys have too many events? Gymnastics for the all around is a sextathalon! Cover all the events! Why do we have to see every round of beach volleyball?
Also, with their “you can watch EVERYTHING live” policy, there is fine print: IF YOU HAVE SIX PAIRS OF EYES LIKE A TARANTULA. They show all six events live, on separate feeds on their app. So while you can follow USA around on their events, you miss seeing who else does what on their other events. As soon as the meet is over, all the feeds go off.
Not happy at all with their broadcasting. I hate the way they keep cutting off the gym and going back to swimming or volleyball. ugh. Gymnastics, especially men’s, is one of the hardest, most amazing sports of all. People love watching it. So bleeping SHOW it, as uninterrupted as possible.
I watched the Men’s team final and didn’t see this. Did NBC air it? Did I step away from the tv for the 2mins that they may have aired it?
For events they intend to show on the NBC evening programming, they pull many of them off the Web, so you can’t watch until after the NBC evening programming.
Yesterday, NBC began inserting commercials in their web streams. It was irritating, as some of the commercials over-ran the action in the events. It also messed up the Youtube feeds.
So far this morning, NBC seems to have removed the commercials from the live streams.
Twitter #NBCfail keeps up with the ills of NBC, including them running spoilers in their promos and news before the events are broadcast in the NBC evening programming.
Meant for my post #5 to reply to you.

I’ve watched their morning live feeds online 3 x and they always interrupted with commercials. The same stupid ones over and over, even though the screen frame is a commercial and if you accidentally touch that spot on your tablet you get another peek at that same commercial.
Rings: Men’s All-Around Final (just under 3 hours)
Thanks for the link.
I guess I can assume they just decided to skip the primetime coverage of this event during the team final, for who knows what reason.
