Isnt the missing body parts winter olympics on now? They should cover that as well, bound to be more accidents than the regular one so even better entertainment.

7-16th March, im sure there will be a little coverage but no where near as much as the full body part games.. because it doesnt make ch10 as much money.

Having seen the para olympic skiers in Thredbo at training……..these people are good and very talented, this so called equity and equality only exists in some pseudo culture, channel 10 failed in an epic fashion during the regular winter games, I reckon most presenters are home now anyway.
Meeting women on the Internet? Remember, the more similarities u “magically” have, & the more she agrees with u, the fucking crazier she is.

i agree with the talented skiers part for sure, I've met a few people who are at that para olympic level and they are brilliant and great people.

As for coverage of games, if you include ONE HD and the Sochi App which had live streaming to mobile devices and 8 channels it was actually pretty damn good. Compare it to past winter games broadcast on 7/9 and it was brilliant. The Sochi App made up for the short falls in the normal tv coverage, i got to see all my mates ski live on tv/tablet and that's much better than previous years.

One issue was that in certain events the commentators had no idea at all and where just making fools of themselves, and the millions of adds.

Foxtel did a great coverage without the adds at  Vancouver,ten had no idea and why bring in football commentators, foxtel had michael buble for the hockey, a parochial canuck
