Because I find athletics to be one of the worst sports to make a team event out of it. Putting hammer throwers and steeplechase runners together with sprinters and high jumpers just makes me feel like it's all way too random, 

 

Completely disagree, team athletics are great! Two of the best events on the calendar are the European Team Champs and the NCAA finals: makes for extremely exciting viewing because every single performance counts.  Often the hero that wins the competition is the unknown hammer thrower who throws a 65m PB to get 7th rather than the predicted 12th place and not the superstar gold medallist sprinter who gets a predicted win.

 

Most exciting athletics event I have seen this year was the four-way battle to avoid relegation in the First Division European Team Champs.
