The amount of empty seats at the Closing Ceremony, which included an appearance from Jamaican sprint king Usain Bolt and a handover segment from Birmingham 2022, was also criticised.

Beattie said organizers had meant to spare athletes a long wait before entering the venue but had got the broadcasting decision wrong.

"We stuffed it up and I apologise to your viewers and the athletes", said Beattie in his interview with David Koch".

More terrible was the revoking of the Games accreditation of two athletes - V. Rakesh Babu and K.T. Irfan - for infringement of the no-needle policy of the Commonwealth Games Federation.

NAN also reports that three Nigerians entered semi-final of 100m men while two of them got to final.

He said the welfare of the athletes was behind the decision as "the last thing they want is to stand in a field for an hour waiting to get into the closing ceremony". Did we stuff it up?

When she goes into the ring, she is a tigress.

"Organizers were confounded by local media to taking the spotlight away in Australia, also the athletes's flag-bearer Kurt Fearnley claimed it was &ldquo odd". Should athletes have been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast?

"Am I watching the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony or Australian Idol?"

"The speeches were too many and too long".

This morning, Commonwealth Games chairman Peter Beattie went to air on Seven's Sunrise program to issue a mea culpa to both the broadcaster and its viewers, explaining the coverage flaws were due to staging decisions by the Games' organisers and event organisers, Jack Morton Events.
