Thread: ESPN Tonya & Nancy Special, Nine for IX Kat Witt episode

  1. #1

    Question ESPN Tonya & Nancy Special, Nine for IX Kat Witt episode

    Did anybody out there see this?

    Was it any good?

    The first I heard about it was in my IFS magaxine which came after the Nov 5 airing.

    The same magazine also mentions where you can buy this ESPN Nine for IX episode on K. Witt.

    Did this ever air on ESPN?

    So far, the only one of these shows I have managed to learn about prior to the air date was about Venus Williams.

    It looks like I gotta start paying more attention to my OSG.

    The Nancy/Tonya documentary has been postponed until January. It is not part of the Nine for IX series that the Witt documentary was part of.

    That makes sense. A network attempt to get a larger audiance and/or perhaps more sponsors for the program.

    Lots of skating activity in January plus It had to do with the 2 skater's Olys dreams back then.

    The program is called 30 for 30

    My DVR cut out at the point where Tonya called Nancy a crybaby for not appreciating her silver medal, so I din't get to see how the program ended. I found it incredible that after all of this time, Tonya still believes(or wants us to believe) that she had nothing to do with any of this. Not only that, she was a victim as much or more than Nancy was. Interesting that Tonya was the only one of the two to appear on this. It seems obvious to me who has moved on with their life, and who is still stuck in time 20 yaers ago.

    I fell asleep and woke up in the middle of this being telecast on my local ABC affiliate today. My observations:

    1. It reminded me of why I have a very low opinion of the news media in general. For what they did to both women back in 1994 and for milking it still today....

    2. The "myth" that Nancy came from the privileged class (not true).

    3. I appreciate that Nancy refused to be interviewed for this special. She did everything she could back in 1994 not to feed the frenzy and she continues to do so.

    4. Tonya claims to be happy with her life (she is happily married now and has a child). That said, she still sounds bitter to me. Can't say I blame her but when she could use the media, she did. When it turned on her, she didn't like it so much.

    5. Regarding what Tonya had to blather about Nancy's unguarded comments about Oksana: I want to throw Tonya's own words back at her regarding her interviews in this special and her clinging belief in her own victim status:

    "Shut up, Tonya. Nobody wants to hear your whining."

    LOL seriously? This sounds like totally entertaining soap opera trash. I hope somebody puts it on youtube because I missed it.

    I agree the news media are just terrible in in they treat people to get a story out.Did you catch Nancy's coach saying she didn't win because they blamed here for all the reporters being there.It reminded me of Michele and Tara when Tara skated last and won.Nancy skated first so they saved it for last skater like they always do.It was more like cheating judging.PJN

    What I found odd about tonya's bitterness was that it wasn't so much presented as "omg,my stupid husband and his pals ruined my whole life!" which she seemed to. Just shrug her shoulders over, but more "omg, everyone made $$$ off of this but me!" which always seems to be her most impassioned whine.

    I think the media dredging up the Knee-Whacking affair at this late date is akin to beating a dead horse (if you'll pardon the expression).
