    Are you sick of Figure Skating coverage on NBC at the Olympics?

    I mean really. It has been going on for days and pushing other events off. They haven't covered a single Hockey match yet. I want Hockey! I want more coverage of Alpine events!

    Figure skating and snowboarding are the only reasons I watch the Olympics.

    I dislike the Olympics as a whole institution. I flat boycotted the last summer olympics

    Figure skating is probably the most popular event.... don't they have other sub-channel/stations that carry the other events?

    Figure skating is awesome, especially the Men's skating and the Pair's skating. I also enjoy watching parts of the ski jumping, luge and bobsled events, snowboarding, biathalon, and hockey.
    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Snowboarding!? Don't get me started on snowboarders! They keep pushing all the snow off the mountain. What a bunch of punks!

    I like hockey, downhill, super g, combined, giant slalom, slalom, and freestyle moguls. They barely show those, just showing the top 5 racers in those downhill events and just the final matches in hockey.

    I haven't seen any alternate channels showing coverage, unforrtunately.

    I did watch the womens long routine figure skating last night. I just don't get it. They all do the same routine.

    The olympics might have used to stand for something, but now its just an orgy of advertising and silly national rivalries.
