  1. Back in Sochi, Russia was criticized for supporting the regime on Syria- and rightfully so. That said, they didn’t just bring out the red carpet for them, Assad’s sister, or allow players onto their hockey team.
  2. I’m starting to think the YOG’s from Innsbruck 2012 and Lillehammer 2016 have been our only successful Winter Games since Vancouver.
  3. PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Media Updates

    So far, NBC has shown to be well-adjusted in its Olympic coverage. That said, tonight seemed to be a step back. I long wanted to see them donmore live coverage, but it seemed to drag. Its not so much showing the competition. They did great going live with Chloe Kim and Ted Ligety, but they should’ve found something else to show during a ski slope delay, or long run of unfamiliar athletes. I long advocated for the latter, but I’m not so sure it translated well on prime time network TV.
  4. Which was tougher on the Olympic movement as a whole? Sochi or Rio?
  5. Weather Delays... again

    I think Nagano has a full cancellation in one of its events. I could be wrong.
  6. Another postponement... Are we actually going to see skiing events after the closing ceremonies, or even worse get scratched?? These delays are getting annoying!

    No, I’m not blogging from South Korea… I’m doing is safely in the comfort of my own home in the States. I’ve always wanted to do something like this, so I had time this evening to give it a try. medalzone.wordpress.com
  9. Beijing 2022

    Yes.. but it may conflict with WOG events people want to see, especially if they go live they will do this year and in 2008.
  10. Beijing 2022

    What is going to happen, with the Games conflicting with Super Bowl 56??

    Any predictions, and why??
  12. PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Media Updates

    Has the WOG fully recovered from 2014? Leading into Sochi, all of the gaffes became the hottest discussion on social media (all across the demographics), yet the ratings were still low. Bottom line, it was poorly received and not in a Room/ Disaster Artist sort of way.
  13. PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Media Updates

    This is probably one a previous post, but- A. How much different will NBC’s coverage be from 2014 & 2016? Aside from the obvious change in prime time anchors. B. How much of an incentive will February sweeps be for the network? C. Will we see more raw sports coverage (much like Summer 1988), or will it package the same way it has the last 26 years?

    Quick question for Quaker... Not to go off-topic, but I've been seeing more and more spots for the Olympic Channel, premiering in July. Of course, it's replacing Universal Sports HD. Is this something you've looked into? How does one get their foot in the door?
  15. I wonder if there are any Olympians, male or female, who have gone on to a successful career in acting… being a fan of both movies and sports, I should probably know it, but I can't think of anyone right now.
