  • Broadcast Coverage of The WC in Daegu

    The Television coverage of the Meeting Areva in Paris has revealed to me the plan for covering the WC.

    The field events will from now on have equal billing with the running events.

    During the running of events over 800m, not only will there be breaks for commercials, but there will also be breaks for coverage of field event attempts, complete with replay, replay in slo-mo, and interviews.

    I did not know that the audience for watching field events was just as large as the one for watching running events. In fact the field events audience might even be bigger than the audience for distances races!

    Dwight Stones must be loving this. Now he'll get far more air time to provide free coaching advise for his favorite athletes as well as provide expert commentary.

    The US had 4 guys hit the A standard in the 1500m today. "Chasing" lasted one race.

      This has the potential to be an excellent initiative. It has long seemed to me that if money were available, a track meet should be covered like golf, jumping back and forth among the field events to cover every jump and throw, with running interjected as it happens. The key to success, though, will be good, customized leader boards for each event. It won't be cheap to do it well.

          What does "has revealed to me" mean?

          * You had a divine epiphany?
          * The producer of the Daegu telecast Skyped you?
          * You heard voices?

          Why do you think the USA telecast will be anything better than what we've had lately (exc. Universal Sports, which is great)?

            Generally the US has been a progressive country. We usually learn from past experience and make improvements when necessary.

            Since this is not happening in the coverage of track and field, I can only conclude the lame broadcasting is intended.

            The guys in charge must have studied under the same guys who bring us porn.

            They seem to have the same approach: frustrate the viewer but give them enough hope that things will get better so that they'll keep watching, hoping to get satisfaction in the end.

              Oh, so you made the whole thing up. :roll: Why didn't you say so?!

              I'll be camped out here:
