The usual refrain from insiders, coaches and hard core fans. The general public likes the NBC formula.
I didn’t watch the NBC coverage either night. Instead I followed commentary (especially FloGymnastics) and twitter. Waiting for the routines I wanted to see to appear legally or illegally online.
The answer to this problem would be for NBC to later post ALL routines online. Or have separate full competition coverage online. That was the role of the – now defunct – Universal Sports Network coverage. Seems it didn’t pay. Universal shut down November 2015. 😦
Power is still being produced by generators. 😦 Generators fail.
Still, the Artistic competition was a success. We only had one major injury over the 3 days – Achilles rupture tumbling for one of the Austrian gymnasts. 😦 Injury rate is normally higher at these biggest meets.
The purpose of the Test Event is to test all aspects. FIX the problems in time for the Olympics.
