Olympic protocol: In the past we have strived to not give away event results for at least 24hrs in order to give those who connot see events live to watch replays w/o knowledge of results. As of this time I''m able to watch those events important to me live most of the time. It did come to my realization yesterday as I was watching the US France soccer match I really wanted to say a few things but by biting my stylis I refused. Should this consideration be reiterized by the pantheron or are we finally to the point it's understood.
Ps. Live preview not working on my iPad1 using suffery (safari.)

Couple football related questions....: If a WR laterals after catching a pass to another player who goes for a score, is the QB credited with a TD pass? Then, if a ball is fumbled, is any advance from the offense after picking it up considered rushing yards for that player? (and would that make a difference between, say -- a fumbled snap and a ball getting jarred loose down the field?) Thanks.
