Default Re: Are US Olympic Announcers Biased Against Gabby Douglas?

I actually thought that they were more biased against the other girl who qualified in place of their favorite (Raisman?). They expected it to be Douglas and Wieber. It was the third best girl that received very little pub.

Btw, I feel funny knowing stuff about women's gymnastics.

yep. because that is the only thing I post on this board about. This thread wasn't meant to be about race. But, if you wanna cite post history then it should be noted that you have made a ton of racist remarks. Just saying.

Mate you cannot make race jokes if youre a bloody white man, it makes you racist. Only if you're not white, then it makes you a comedian.

You ought to know this, mate. Its that whole equality thing.

Each other race has an inferiority complex that heightens their sensitivity to jokes. Just accept it and be thankfulfor the hand you were dealt. Others will incorrectly and unfairly label you a racist, dont let it affect the comments or jests you wish to make. Be strong mate!

I dont usually like this sport but even I could tell that gabby chick was really really good, she hardly lost her balance and landed straight every time.


The only thing I dont understand is the dance moves-are they necessary? Do they get scored for it?

Like for example if they do the hardest technical flips and land them all but have stupid dance moves or move akwardly in between, does the girl with less difficult jumps but who dances better get a high score?

If the judges decide the music doesnt match the routine do they get lower scores?

What's the point of the dancing?

Basically all I'm confused about is does all the little hand movements and hip shakes and shit matter in terms of scoring? It's all abit subjective and I think most of this scoring relies on reputation, because I see some chicks from Germany and Italy who were doing the floor thing just as good as the russians chinese and americans but they only got like 13.8 compared to the more famous countries who got 15s.

It's abit of a stupid sport where you get higher or lower marks only because your country's reputation, which is what it seems like.

But this must be the most difficult sport in the olympics, especially that balance beem stuff.
