So it's pretty clear to me that the US crew reporting on Worlds (with the exception of the one US reporter doing reaction interviews) aren't actually in Italy right? Because Tanith and Johnny made several references of being in LA.

Is this pretty unusual? Is this a reflection of the tight budget of Universal Sports? I always thought that if you were going to commentate on something you kind of had to be there. I mean how can you tell the rotation and speed of the jumps if you're only looking at a television feed?
