    Halfpipe looks so slow. The girls are barely getting up

    I dont want to be 'that guy' but the women on the halfpipe dont bring it as much as the men. Seemed some pedestrian jumps and spins. And the height seemed ordinary.

    How was last night a "fantastic final"? Sure they did great to make it that far, but I wouldn't call 4th and 5th and only beating the one who wiped out a 'fantastic final'. Man I hate these channel 7 hacks.

    Man these Russians can figure skate, amazing.

    Been at work all day, did the women's giant slalom go ahead today?? If so, don't give away the result, I'll try catch a replay.

    I struggle to get enthused about figure skating. It's the winter games version of dressage for me.

    Any chance they could chuck on the hockey? It's live after all.

    I've actually really enjoyed it. Some of the routines have been superb, and I've been enjoying the song choices.

    I swear their coverage is all designed to get me buying the premium level on the app.

    It hasn't worked. Yet...

    Watching Robertson
    Agree and 7's coverage has been woeful with replay after replay while denying to show any live events that Aussies are not involved in for some reason while pointing viewers to the App.........

    It was so much better when Foxtel or pay TV had it and viewers could pick what they wanted to watch and a lot of us have different heritages and want the option to watch what we want.

    Not as much as you think. Not that I watched every sec of coverage, but they had the Snowboarding finals and half-pipe qualies and the figure skating. Any replays would have replaced the missing Salom event. I think they had one at the start of the morning.

    Not everyone would have stayed up to 12 last night or would be remotely interested in a women's ice hockey between Japan and Switzerland. This slot (7:30-9) will be the catch up on last night actions time for 7 unless it is a popular live event on. They able to "cut the trim" and edit it to the many casuals.
