What's your thoughts on these? Have you seen them? I love the one with the gymnast's parents. It may be we got to see it because she is a local girl.

So how do you feel about them - I find them quite interesting, but then on the other hand, even though my kids aren't any where near as talented even watching they perform/compete it makes me think what I do watching them.

Here is a great article on it...

And do you see yourself doing these things as a spectator?

@Linkat,
I was not aware that parents of competitors had signed on to be content for the XXX Olympiad to sell.

Invasive and in poor taste about sums up my opinion.

NBC's coverage of the gymnastics was terrible. Instead of showing the score board, they spent a ton of time focusing on the girls private conversations, the crying of the other team, and the faces of the parents. It was pitiful and so invasive.

@PUNKEY,
We have three or four stations covering it - well, we have one or two, and one or two of yours, so we can switch back and forth. I don't care for NBCs coverage, either. And Linkat, everybody got to see those parents.
