I understand that huge meets like Oly and WC are so spread out as to make live tough, but even these meets (and certainly the invitationals) can schedule a 2-hour 'prime time' centered on the marquee races. During track downtime you recap field events and previous track action. That should only enhance the excitement of the on-the-scene fans. I realize that several (many) of the meets are trying to do precisely this, but then TV always RUINS it with the pointless interviews (so how'd it feel to win? pant - pant - great - pant), pointless 'expert' commentary (talking heads), and the cutesy background crap. Everyone, even the 'casual viewer' that the networks seem to pander to, want to see ACTION!! How tough is that to understand?
