Comments on: Olympics spoilers? http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/08/23/olympics-spoilers/ Reader reaction to Reuters news Fri, 18 Nov 2011 06:49:03 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: GarwoodPR http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/08/23/olympics-spoilers/comment-page-1/#comment-340693 Wed, 10 Sep 2008 02:14:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/gbu/2008/08/23/olympics-spoilers/#comment-340693 Reuters coverage of the games was great, and I found the score news helped me keep up with events I couldn’t tune in to. Ultimately the score is only one part of a sports story, and watching the spectacular feats of the Olympians is the reason to tune in. Some of the Olympians who earned medals have set up athlete profiles on the Loop’d Social Network. Check some of them out like:

If you know you’re planning on watching a tape-delayed live event, what in the world are you doing surfing news web sites where they strive to…report the news in a rapid manner?

Perhaps, you should put a warning sign: “This website may seriously ruin your game” ?

If you don’t want news – even sports news – stay away from news websites. Sheeeeeesh!
Reminds me of an episode of the great UK TV sitcom ‘The Likely Lads (Whatever happened to…)’ where the lads try and avoid hearing the score of an England game so they can enjoy it on the TV replay later. As we all remember – that game was f******. (forefeited??)

My main problem with it was the fact that the headlines were often posted on the main Reuters news page. It would have been one thing if I had to click on the sports section first, and it would have been even better if I had to go into an Olympics section, but I couldn’t even read the general news without the spoilers staring me in the face. Boo!
