on TV? I think dogs jumping and doing
flips would be more interesting.”
after a few minutes watching Dressage.
Every 4 years the Summer Olympics inspire thousands, if not millions of young girls and boys to take up gymnastics and swimming. Impressionable young children watch hours and hours of these sports, not just cheering for their favorite athletes, but hanging on their every tumble, flip and dive.

supposed to be interesting!”
NBC Producers, please help our youth learn to love the sports that they can play too. Show us hours of swimming and gymnastics live. Show the track and field while it’s happening. True fans will watch it live, and causal viewers don’t mind prime time repeats. In this day of instant information, we don’t want to be “tricked” into thinking we’re watching something live. We’re smarter than that. You own many channels, inundate us with all-sports, all the time for 2 weeks on every channel you own. We’ll love it, and we’ll love you for it too.
And you can sign this petition to broadcast the biggest Olympic events live: NBC: Broadcast the biggest events of the Olympics LIVE on television!
