Take away the x-games type bull shite events and USA would be way back in medals

I'm convinced they added all that crap to increase viewers and tv ratings. US has swept some of those derelict events.

Like the IOC would do anything to help the US.

The x games crap is there because of the popularity gained in the US

Take away the luge, and the Germans would be way back. Take away the speed skating, and the Dutch would be tied with Kazakhstan. Take away alpine skiing, and the Austrians would have little presence. Take away Kevin Durant from the Thunder, and they'd suck.

The X games style events, which were mostly invented by Canadian and American teenagers in the past 2 decades are extremely popular event, and the Olympics is wise to add them, rather than just continuing with military exercises that were done in pre-World War II Northern Europe.

Thank you for concluding the discussion with the right response.

Maybe. Or maybe we would invest those resources in traditional Olympic events and have a better showing there.

The Winter Olympics are the less popular games so they needed to do something to help bring in younger viewers. Sure the US has done very well in those events but it looks like other countries are starting to catch up.

If they don't do things to keep US TV viewers interested there won't be any damned Olympics so this crap is here to stay.

Like Russia.

That would be another two golds for us if our selection process wasn't guided by star appeal and pretty faces.

USA won 3 freestyle golds and 7 total freestyle medals. Canada won 4 goals and 9 total freestyle medals.

The country most aided by the new sports is Canada. They also added 2 curling golds, a recent Olympic addition.

They would so anything to receive NBC dollars. In the 2008 Olympics, they moved the swimming finals to the morning because NBC said they wanted them to take place at prime time in the U.S.

do you know how bad the conditions were at these games? do you know how much an advantage having the ability to practice on the sledding events was for the home country?

Every host country has that advantage, not just Russia.
