I never got to see a full replay (I've seen several people unsure what they were arguing about, but I thought it was dismount), but I guess them there are the breaks you have in a judged sport. It will not always be fair unfortunately.

Also, I agree with you had it been someone besides Jordyn, there probably wouldn't be as much controversy.

Anyway, can sometime who will watch the replay later tell me how NBC does their coverage? Like is it just US or what. I missed it today and won't be home during the prime time hours. I'm guessing it'll mostly be stuffed in the last hour, but am unsure with swimming today as well. May have to set the DVR for the late night replay, but should I go all 4 or just 1 hour?
