Evidently the Asian badminton teams are losing on purpose so they don’t have to play each other. This summer’s Olympics have been nothing but a complete joke for its entire run. First it was London’s horrid logo design that looks like Lisa Simpson sucking a dick. The ridiculous demands of the IOC and the excessive commercialism. Then there is the whole world hating on NBC because they refuse to show the majority of the Olympics live and instead use their platform for US jingoism.
Hell the biggest story coming out of the Olympics this year is how much NBC sucks at showing the Olympics. Aren’t there supposed to be athletes and sports and the spirit of friendly competition and shit? Did I not get the memo where all of that was removed from the Olympic program?
The next winter Olympics will no doubt be no longer between the nations of the world. Instead we’ll have Team McDonald’s taking on Team Citigroup in several events. They may as well. Why even pretend like this about getting the best athletes in the world to compete against each other anymore? It’s clearly not about that anymore. It’s about extracting as much money as possible from advertisers and sponsors. The competitions themselves have become secondary to all of the other bullshit. The only Olympic hero the IOC or NBC gives a shit about is Visa.
