    For some reason there is no ABC radio coverage of the Olympics. You have to listen to 2GB in Sydney.

    What amazes me is how hopeless Ray Hadley is as chief commentator. He mumbles, jibbers and is basically way out of his depth away from football. He is a total embarrassment and comes across with little knowledge or intellect.

    If ever there was a case of National interest and need for the ABC he is it. I was embarrassed at his efforts tonight at the Athletics.

    yesterday afternoon the ABC were running with AFL commentary - 15th vs 16th too I believe.  Pathetic.

    ABC am radio, which is 1233 on the dial here in the Hunter/Newcastle region of NSW has been very good regarding Olympcis 2008 coverage.

    Certainly not constant nor a huge amount of coverage, but still quite a lot, both during 11am-3pm daytime, as well as some evening/nighttime broadcasts.
    In fact, they have switched between some big Aussie highlight events most days very well!

    Sure they called the aerial ping pong sometime during the weekend like they always do,  but you get that.

    Been very impressed with much that 1233 am ABC radio has done the past few years, very cool.

    Wish we got it in Sydney - the commercial coverage has been very poor.
