Olympic spectating...

Well we've got loads to watch, but some sports just don't work for a TV audience.

For me the archery completely fails in it's ability to convey any excitement over the contest, and also sailing, that fails to convey who is racing against who, it seems to be just pictures of people sailing a boat having a good time...

What do you think is a non-spectator sport?

99% of the olympics!

They have hired volunteers, dressed in yellow shirts, to fill up empty venues and improve the atmosphere inside. click here

"What's the 1% positive...?"

Perhaps the beach volleyball when the scantily-clad young ladies are playing?? ;-))

It's perhaps a bit off-topic, but IMO any event in which the winner is decided on points determined by the subjective opinions of judges (no matter how expert the judges may be) should be excluded.

Or perhaps the Olympic motto should be amended to read "Higher, faster, further, or in someone's opinion."

Spot on!

Until they introduce female mud wrestling in 2012.
