    Default Sports Industry Slams Ryan Seacrest: Leave The Olympic Coverage To Us!

    Sports Industry Slams Ryan Seacrest: Leave The Olympic Coverage To Us!
    Created 07/30/2012 - 11:00am
    By Amber Goodhand - Radar News Editor

    Ryan Seacrest should stick to entertainment, that's what journalists in the sports industry have exclusively told RadarOnline.com.

    With NBC's extensive coverage of the Olympics this year comes the new face of Seacrest, 37, who joins veterans like Bob Costas and Matt Lauer -- but athletic insiders don't feel like the E! host is up to par.

    "Everyone in the industry is talking about what a bad move it was to include Ryan Seacrest on the NBC coverage this year," a journalist for a major sports network, who wishes to remain anonymous, told RadarOnline.com.

    "Ryan is the face of mainstream celebrity media, and there's supposed to be something sacred and pure about the Olympics. Ryan's not up to speed on the athletes in the way that they should be covered."

    Olympic viewers have already taken to Twitter to express their distaste at Seacrest's coverage on NBC with hashtags like #NBCfail and comments like, "I just want bbc Olympics coverage..smart commentary, focus on the sport, and no ryan seacrest."

    "So now I have to watch Ryan Seacrest every New Year's Eve AND every olympics too? #NBCfail," another tweeter wrote.

    "Ryan has enough on his plate with the Kardashians. NBC really failed by sensationalizing the games in a mainstream way by plastering Ryan's face all over the Olympics," the insider said.

    "It's a slap in the face to sports and athletics and those who spend their life devoted to covering them."

    Seacrest is such a douchebag. He was reporting on the Aurora shootings on his radio show as well. DIAF. You know it is bad when I would rather watch Bob Costas and his freshly dyed rug.

    I have managed to avoid Seacrest so far, but did had to sit through that interview he did with Phelps during the opening ceremony. NBC deserves all the shit it's getting for that one.

    Seacrest probably pulled in every favour he had to get the gig. The chance to spend all day staring at men in swimming trunks and tight lycra running shorts while getting paid for it was obviously too good to pass up.

    NBC is failing at covering the Olympics period.

    Costas is looking a bit "refreshed" and odd around the temples, isn't he?

    I did a mental facepalm the first time I saw Seacrest on the broadcast. He must have bought his way in like a human product placement.

    He used his ridiculous inflection saying the most simplest of sentences. It's been a million years since I saw American Idol, but he would call it "uh...[unnecessary pause]...MAIR-ikkin i-dull". Just say "american idol" you overdramatic idiot.

    Those assholes on NBC.com sent me to commercial DURING Phelps' race this afternoon. A flury of abusive emails have hit every inbox I could find an address for over that one.

    He can't even blink anymore he's been so refreshed. Notice tonight- he only blinks like once every three minutes.

    Oh- And Seacrest. I couldn't believe it the first time he came onscreen. There is no. escape from his evil.

    I hate all the stories and interviews but McEnroe's, because he's nuts and says whatever the hell he wants to.

    I like Seacrest in his element. This ain't it.

    Costas = the Ann Curry of sports (waaaay too dramatic)
