Yeah, it probably would have. To give all 19 instead of the 6 we saw their fair shake would have required that NBC double the coverage, and that ain't gonna happen outside an Olympic year.

I actually thought Valeri was pretty easy on Nastia. Considering that he is a former Soviet gold medalist who came up through a very strict and harsh system, I'd have thought he'd have been harsher with her, but he was no worse than most coaches. She was probably more pissed off at herself than he was, but maybe she gets it from him.

Pay Andrea no mind. She's just the typical hurricane-brained sideline reporter. Be glad they didn't have Melissa Stark. She was AWFUL when she was on the Olympics.

I think we look pretty weak in women's gymnastics this time around. After you get past Nastia and Chellsie, we don't seem to have too many reliable performers. This for sure ain't no Magnificent 7, and if we're gonna get more than a few individual scraps in Beijing, Marta K. and company better get their crap together posthaste.
