That was pretty much how things went in the 1970's. I used to watch Canadian TV feeds in New York for my international hockey, and it was very nationalistic stuff. I can't even recall watching the 76 tournament. I think there was relatively little interest because it was clear the Soviets weren't icing a competitive team, and no one in North American gave a damn about Czechs, Swedes or any other variety of European Ice Capades princesses at the time.
