They are so bias. Like if it is US Gymnast: "a little bit off balance there" Chinese gymnast: "a possible BIG POINT DEDUCTION" US Gymnast "almost" Chinese gymnast "woooh...woooh....visible error"

Tim Dagget, Elfie Schlegel & Al Trautwig -- the Dream Team of NBC gymnastics announcers??? lol - These guys are so biased. Al and Elfie especially like to instigate the poor judging controversy. Elfie - she says nothing of value since Tim is more knowledgeable about identfying the mistakes in the routine. All three are incredibly biased.

So annoying that I am tempted to never watch women's gymnastics again. I would like to watch more than 10 minutes of uninterrupted gynmastics without repetitive comments about who was cheated, robbed, underaged, and misjudged. Maybe if they covered more countries than just USA v. China, we would get to see not only world class gymnastics but also get some peace and quiet. Update: Btw, I am not underaged (last time I checked :) ) and I didn't cheat anyone out of a gold (I have to tweak my cartwheel still). I am not trying to comment on the status of gymnastics controversy, I just want to see more awesome routines.

Cynthia Potter is the wonderful shade commentator nonetheless in the Olympic diving activities. I additionally understand how sturdy a dive is even although I by no ability have been a diving choose. the only dives i'd desire to do is a swan dive and that i think an basic inward dive. She became into there at Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, and that i think 2004 too. She is likewise the two large in 2008. i'm keen on her. and each time in those video games, she proves via her tone of voice that she is somewhat a aggressive diving professional. i like her comments that are so sparkling that even people who by no ability took up diving or do no longer understand diving can understand countless the aggressive diving terminology, like "previous vertical", or "slightly previous vertical", or a "neglected dive", or a "failed dive", etc. As I pronounced earlier, Cynthia's tone of voice is likewise low and so enormously convincing. In end, Cynthia Potter's voice merely approximately sounds precisely like the communications professional, Lillian Glass. very sturdy. Her voice is merely approximately like Lillian's.

They are so annoying! They make the most ridiculous comments! Gymnastics especially, but I was watching synchronized diving the other day, and the commentators just went on and on about how it didn't look "pretty." I completely disagreed though. It all looked gorgeous to me.

Extremely annoying, especially the one for women gymnastics. I really want to know her name so that I can complain about her. She is the most bias and unprofessional commentator of all times!!! Can someone tell me her name??

Why does NBC have two different commentary voices during the swimming events (possibly others)? One is deep and provides more facts. The other voices just babble. It is incredibly annoying!!

I agree.. there is no encouraging of anyone doing this at all or very little. It's "Oh there they go again.. that's not good.. they will lose points for that , etc etc etc" How about encouraging these kids and people .. they're busting they butts to do this and do it right. Shawn White does Great snow boarding.. but it's hard to do what he is used to doing on " Slushy" snow. Sheeshhhhhh and all the commentators did was ***** ***** *****. Drew Pitcher

They are not annoying. You are only annoyed because you are underage! And you cheated us out of the gold! If anything, we need to make NBC commentators the official judges of the Olympics. Then everything will be fair.
