That takes a lot of guts to admit it was a mistake.
The live coverage of the AMA supersport race that was on in the early afternoon, 2pm et or something like that, was cut short after a couple of laps to show highlights of a NASCAR race that was already over. The supersport race was shown again around 9pm, so depending on which one you taped it may get cut short to show interviews of people that should be subtitled.apexismaximus said:All right, fill me in. I've been getting HOSED at work since Sunday and WAS going to catch up tonight on some races I taped. So what am I missing on the tape from Sunday?????
This is a constant complaint in my house. My husband can't stand NASCAR. Yes, it is very popular in America, but is it quality racing, no. As my husband always says, "go really fast, and turn left, any idiot can do that". I have to agree, F1, motorcycle, WRC, these all take some obviously serious skills. No NASCAR in my house. He thinks NASCAR should have their own channel. Get it the hell off his "real racing" channel so I don't have to hear him complain anymore every time he turns to the SPEED channel and NASCAR's on again.apexismaximus said:
The only good thing about NASCAR is giving a few idgits at work shit all the time and them having no comeback other than 'it's the most popular racing in America'. Yah, and Jerry Springer's been on for ages but that doesn't mean it's any good.
Maybe this new movie "14K" will help.blackkaw said:Don't you guys remember several years back when nascar was not that big a deal to the masses, and it didn't get the coverage that it does today.I really believe our time is coming.( widespread coverage). just like nascar..
Maybe Jay Leno would be a good guy to bring this up to? He's got LOTS of money, know's showbiz, and he's a huge bike/car nut.Needa916 said:
Oh well...anyone up for some fund raising to buy the name "Speedvision" and buy the rights to WSBK, AMA, Rally, F1 and all other roadracing series?
