and for the lack of coverage on events! These athletes are skiing down the same mountains as some of the olympic events, with one leg, or no legs, and they don't deserve the same coverage?
Tried to find sledge hockey, it was on a channel I don't get, but not on one channel I do....how unfortunate!

Unfortunately if coverage is to be on commercial TV it has to pay for them to cover the event. Most people do not care to watch the paralympics hence why there is less coverage. :shrug:

How would we knowwwww if we never get to see them?! I understand your point but it's like women's hockey and women's basketball. SOMEBODY has to start the trend!

womens hockey and womens basketball would never get commercial tv coverage unless they were lumped in with sports that did. Sad but true.
