NBC Olympic Commentators are Dicks

Saw this video via: jovialgymfan.tumblr 

I haven't seen the full NBC coverage of gymnastics yet but from viewing short gymnastics video clips I can say that they butchered the scoring system.

I see that they do this, Max difficulty: 16.500 - Deductions: 1.500 = 15.000. Ok technically it gives you the correct score but who came up with this idea? I really hate NBC!

The correct way is Difficulty 6.5 + Execution 8.5 = 15.000. Every country did it this way and this is the FIG way in the rule book. All Americans must be very confuse at the scoring system, thanks to NBC. They just make gymnastics more confusing.
