Subject: RE: The REAL reason why Track and Field isn't more popular...
I love to watch T&F, but most people I know aren't interested.
1. Not enough meets on TV or near people to watch. Think of how much golf, basketball, football, baseball, nascar are on TV. Also look at the decline in boxing as it went from being on "regular" TV to being pay per view only... not on TV=nobody cares.
2. I agree that top athletes do not race each other enough! I don't find any excitement (an I'm sure borderline fans do not either) just speculating who might have won a race between X and Y. Lets see people race each other and not just the clock (sometimes).
3. And seriously if people will sit and watch nascar for 3-4 HOURS go around a track, you think they couldn't watch races between 4 and 30 min? Really we couldn't see an uncut mile??? If people were really racing one another it might not seem boring to non-runners.
4.Good commentators who can explain concisely everyone in the race is also key. And please stop the sob-story, life-changeing experience, cry-baby personal editorials. There are so many that they do not mean anything anymore and turn watching track (or the olympics) into a bad reality show. Let's see some stories on athletic achievement and the actual sport itself!
