  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
I thought the announcer was fine and he definitely gave AJ some TV time, he even circled back at the end when he talked about the standings and mentioned Israel and AJ's story.
Agreed.

You ppl are so obstinate. Why can't the announcer have done a good job, and even have mentioned AJ's Israeliness, and still be an anti-semite?

I'm not saying it wasn't a compliment but how does that change my point?
All the athletes before AJ he mentioned what country they're representing plus whatever other info he gave about them, it just seemed odd to me that suddenly when it came to Israel he didn't mention it. Especially considering that you would think that just the fact that there's even an Israeli "team" should be newsworthy in of itself... Although in his defense he did mention that he didn't stick with bobsled because he couldn't find any Israeli teammates...

The funny thing I'm usually the last one to jump to antisemitism
Not sure if we watched different clips, but he definitely said AJ was representing Israel and praised AJ effusively.

But still, he's probably an anti semite until proved otherwise.

Hmm... official website says start time is 8. Maybe just the tape delay? Also, he's scheduled to go last in heat 1, so it might be a while till he's up.

ETA:

(start time is Korean time - subtract 14 hours to get NY time)
