well they "saved" the race until.. they could keep everyone watching to see the commercials.. and after everyone knew the result or had gone to bed....
the networks have NO interest in track and field ...none.. never have never will.. i have "battled" it for over 40 years......
the network should broadcast live or not be allowed to broadcast track!!
I love all the sports.. but i continue to be "flabbergasted", using PG13 language,
when they show hours of horses jumping over a puddle, MM getting sand between her toes, swimmers getting 3 gold medals for basically three of the same events.. and even HOURS of marathon, 10k, 5k, track races (Craig Virgin's 10K at NCAA's is still one of my all time track and field greats)and this time they couldn't even have the decency to show some of the events live that were on a weekend at a decent hour!
Not only are they not airing live .. looks like the field events don't exist! Ever… I think the "scrip" this time is to show four throws, four jumps, four vaults!!! But none during the event!
USATF should/must have their own Cable change anyone that wants to "air" or broadcast themselves. That would be the most Important money spent for future development, even for the "life" of the sport.
In today's technology this would be a cinch. Even a "caveman" could do it!
