Examines the contradictions inherent in the global goodwill message of the Olympic games the the reality of a segmented and highly policed broadcast market. The paper focuses on the 'Channel 9 Olympics Coverage Sucks' Facebook group, in terms of everyday commentary, distancing this group from the ideas of trolling despite deploying some of the techniques and grammar of troll, especially provocative image macros.
