#NBCFail: Boobage edition

Oh dear Lord. NBC’s Olympic-scale naked incompetence continues to be put on full display. Today, the goofplagued network slipped up when it showed a Spanish water polo player’s breast.

i thought womens vball showed the most skin but womens waterpolo NBC just showed some Spaniard boob haha

After taking heat for airing events on a tape delay, NBC decided to give live coverage a try. Whoops.

A pair of vigilant Twitterers grabbed shots of the bathing suit malfunction:

Hey, at least the logo’s in the right place this time!


NBC totally just showed a full boob from the underwater cam of water polo. When you know the girls rip each others suits off check the tape

I'm pretty sure NBC just showed some boob during the women's water polo game.

Home for lunch watching USA Women's Water Polo match and NBC replayed twice a swim suit being grabbed in slow motion, and there is a boob.

— Robb T. Falana II (@TheRobbF2) August 1, 2012

just when you think NBC was getting better by airing live olympics, they fail by making it delayed again because a boob was shown.

Yeah NBC just nationally broadcast a waterpolo girls boob being pulled out of her suit.. Keeping it classy

— Danger Dane (@OkDangerDane) August 1, 2012

…and NBC freaks out because a boob flies out in water polo… THREE DAYS AGO

— Matt Jordan (@PressboxMJ) August 1, 2012


Once wasn’t enough, though. Apparently, NBC broadcast yet another shot of an American player’s exposed breast:

#NBC just did it again! Another boob shot of a #USA player, this time they left the camera on her longer.

— Kris Kepler (@kriskepler) August 1, 2012

Guess NBC is an equal-opportunity offender. Sheesh.

So NBC broadcast underwater footage of a boob during water polo. I don't get the big deal about showing a boob, they already show Bob Costas

We have officially seen the nipple on NBC’s soul!
