Winter Olympics

Recommended Posts

JaneB   

Not of great importance compared to our Chelsea, but I am so frustrated at the BBC coverage of the Winter Olympics.  I love watching all the different sports but all I get is talk, talk, talk.  Endless studio discussions and boring interviews, and constant sycophantic cheerleading of the British athletes, dumbing everything down and turning it into a soap opera.

The Clare Balding show as opposed to the Gabby Logan show.  Grrrrr......

Just show us some bl***y sport!

That's why I watch it mostly on the red button. Clare Balding rubs me up the wrong way I'm afraid.

Not difficult!

Much better idea, don't know why I haven't been doing that 🙄

She is known as "the Sainted Clare" in our house. Generally, when she comes on, we turn off.

They tend to show the whole (or at least most) of an event on the red button instead of cherry picking bits for us  to watch. Plus the explaining every rule to us dumb viewers annoys the f**k out of me.

Been enjoying it all the same.

I used to like Clare but not so much now.

Agreed on both counts.

I'm not a nasty person but they drove me so mad with their continuous building up of Elise Christie that I finally snapped and thought wouldn't it be hilarious if she fell over again......and then she did! 

(Hope she's ok)

Have you ever noticed that you never see Clare Balding and Eddie Izzard together?
