Tough to justify charging for the webcast when there are still so many questions about the quality of the delivery (and coverage). It almost seems like they want people to stay away so they can call it a failure and go back to protecting broadcast rights.

You are right on the money. The USATF has done a lot to make people not watch the track and field.
I am not saying that I would not pay the 5 dollars to get a 'full' 'life' coverage of the world championships, but I do not know what am I paying for.
Recently, it did seem like it were going to get better, but I guess we shoud have not hoped.
