NBC has been airing Olympic sports later in the day during prime-time hours on TV in America which means they have ample time to edit any unforeseen or inappropriate happenings for the viewers at home.

Unfortunately for the women's water polo match between Spain and the U.S., this wasn't the case Wednesday. During the live show one player pulled down another's swimsuit which resulted in NBC airing the player's breast and nipple live on TV.

The shot could have easily been missed in an era of non-twitter, but the conversation came up much easier with social media with twitterers posting things like:

Though this is a common occurrence during water polo and not one that should be extremely alarming. Grabbing and punching are all part of the game so it's no surprise that swimsuit grabbing and subsequent nipple exposing occur.

Pulling swimsuits is totally legal as far as the game goes but the fact that it was exhibited on live TV means that NBC needs to up their professional editing for live coverage.

NBC has yet to release a statement regarding the oops but this isn't the first time viewers have complained about NBC'S Olympic coverage. People were angered over spoilers that came on the air even before it's prime time viewing such as Missy Franklin's win in the 100-meter backstroke by airing a Today advertisement.
