does anyone else think, Thomas is getting quite a home boost? It's not quite Skate Canada dimensions, but his E-score on rings should be 2-3 tenths lower.

NBC doesn't care what commentators we want/don't want or Sandra and Scott would've been gone ages ago.

Good point. I keep wondering if Elfi, Tim, and Al just come really cheap. But, it's a shame because an informative commentator could bring in more viewers.

Glad to see Orozco still fighting even though his medal shot is gone. 15.2 on rings.

NBC specifically said that it is not your right to get whatever you want. Not only do they not care what commentators you want, they don't give a shit about any customers ever.

I wonder if there's someone we can e-mail to encourage them to have her do tv broadcasts in the future. It's impressive that she's so good commentating on the men with apparatus she never did herself.

It is definitely worth researching. Maybe we should dedicate a thread to broadcasting in general for this purpose.....

Shannon made an excellent point about Orozco and Leyva. They are 19 and 20 years old respectively potentially with a lot of career remaining. USA Gymnastics put a lot of pressure on them. I hope they take this experience and seriously consider Rio

Yes, I've noticed that in the fine print every time I've tried to get their videos to work or to see more gymnasts. They scrolled it across the screen when they were showing the Cameroon women's soccer qualifying round on tv the other day.

I can't tell if you don't believe me or what, hard to tell tone on the internet, but an NBC exec did say exactly that two days ago.

Yeah. She probably understands that. I used to wonder how she handled on that pressure put on her when she was fifteen or sixteen. It's funny that she's turned out be a commentator because I think of her as being so quiet and softspoken.
