NBC is just full of fail

This isn't 1998 anymore where you can pull off stunts like this. The bottom line is there needs to be more vocal outrage about how they handle the scheduling. I can't be the only one screaming at them people.

Wow.
Anyone interested in this match will be aware of the result 2 hours before the coverage starts.

Thumbs down Re: NBC is just full of fail

Radio Wimbledon is bashing NBC up and down saying that American fans are wondering why they are showing a replay of Berdych-Federer on ESPN instead of Serena and the male announcer sighs and said "Well that's NBC for you. Sorry America."

This "embargoing" of matches is pure and utter When NBC comes on they'll pretend as though the match was "live."

NBC: Buy rights, Don't show Live.

NBC loves taped matches because it is easer to load with their commercials. They do it all the time. ESPN should be allowed to show the LIVE match.

They do tape it live and air it..but I guess Al Roker's book club is more important

Re: NBC is just full of fail

Well, we know NBC will never pre-empt "The Today Show" for tennis, but what else do they have on before 12:00?

Re: NBC is just full of fail

Bastards. Just let ESPN show it I doubt the ratings of a not-yet-shown replay are better than an already-shown one.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković
