Bela Karolyi is an entertaining analyst, but a biased one

Bela Karolyi is undeniably entertaining as a gymnastics studio analyst - when he can be understood through his still-thick accent.

But it's really weird that NBC is using him in that role. Not because of stuff such as him stating as fact - without offering proof - that the Chinese are cheating by using underage athletes.

More because his wife runs the U.S. gymnastics team!

If NBC is going to use him as an analyst, it should paste a disclaimer over his image at all times alerting viewers to his conflict of interest.

Coming next month on NBC's coverage of the Redskins-Giants opener: Jerry Reese's wife, Gwen, joins Tiki Barber and Jerome Bettis to break down the big game!
