Dear Speed Channel Production Staff

Is it possible for you to be able to capture on film when the P2 rider runs off and rejoins to P11 as well as when the P5 rider who is pushing hard with his teamate who is P4 crashes out in what looked to be quite a get off?

I mean c'mon, you have cameras on every inch of the track but refuse to show these (2) MAJOR events within the race - To quote State Trooper Ramathorn, "Next time you find yourselves in this position, stop what you are doing and pull your heads out of each otheres asses"

Fuck you very much!

You should read my post better - I made sure not to mention any rider by name of place of finish

Dumb ass!

They must be using the same cameras for the motocross races too. The picture quality is total shit, you can hardley even read the rider numbers. It looks like something taken from a shitty camcorder.

Yeah, yeah, I concur with Elvis in training...Speed TV sends the D squad to every AMA event.

They suck, period.

I watched 15 minutes of commercials today prior to the start of the race. I was sickened...since I know that they are offering such low ad rates to watch the "gremlins" over and over I want to chip in and do a PSA ad that tells Speed TV NASUCK fans that their favorite TV station has dumbed itself down so low that having a cocktail with the Geico Caveman feels like a MENSA meeting.

Fuck Speed TV...

I'm getting to the point that I don't even read this board anymore until I've had a chance to watch all the weekends races. You obvisouly took the time to not put any names, so at least tag it as a spoiler too. Is that too much to ask?

Secondly, SpeedTV has no control over the video feed, it's not their cameras. The 'other' broadcast had the same missing footage. No cameras caught those events.
How can this be a spoiler when Speed showed 4 races yesterday??????? - As for Speeds "Camera" um, yes they do home boy - I am quite familiar with the set up as I spent a summer with the ALMS and had Speed's "Cameras" mounted in our car a few times - They have cameras covering every inch of the track

I don't understand what is so hard about putting a SPOILER tag in the thread? It's like you are purpossly trying to ruin races for people without actually naming names. Why even go there? If there is any doubt, put SPOILERand I'll make people who haven't gotten a chance to watch any of the 4 races this weekend will know to stay away from the thread.

What is wrong with not wanting to know ANYTHING about ANY race?
Damn Dude - I thought I was not spoiling -Sorry - As for "purposely trying to ruin races for people" c'mon bro, bring it down a notch or two okay??? - I mention nothing of what race it is, I mention nothing of any named rider - I guess if I need to proof and police my posts than fuck it - I won't talk about it - Would that make ya happy?

And I didn't say anything about policing your posts or not talking about it at all. I just don't understand why it's so difficult to type 7 extra letters into the title if it has anything to do with a race that just happened this weekend? Is that seriously asking too much?
To me Bro, Spolier is when you SPOIL the race and I guess I left the term up for interp too much - I did not feel I spoiled it so I did not type the 7 little letters in question - You will see that I have in the past when I discuss race finish and names associated with but when I do not, I did not feel the need to put spoiler in

Bug can handle himself, but I am going to chime in anyway.

I agree with Bug. You need to back down Jeff. If you have a problem (which is obvious you do) take to a mod or a PM instead of trying to publicly flog Bug. Show some respect. And you are not the racing news police ok?

Sounds like you already found your solution. This is what I do. I stay out of the Motorcycle Racing News forum until I have watched the races or I don't care anymore.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

I guess I need to put more smiles in or something. You guys are both taking everything out of proportion.

I simply asked for a SPOILER and don't understand the resistance? If someone asked me I'd gladly mark the thread as such.

And again, I state that I don't feel the need for a spoiler as to me nothing was spoiled - We are both defending our own point of views - Just as you don't understand why I did not, I don't understand why I should, capice?

I gotta take a wicked dump - I had a Jamba Juice for lunch and man it's gonna get ugly in there - Wish me luck, I'm goin in

I just skip all race related threads if I care about the outcome and haven't watched it yet.

I didn't think the title gave it away... but I did know not to read the thread before watching this weekends mc races

Truly Bug could have put SPOILER on the thread title and it would be meaningless, SpeedTV probably cut away during the final lap anyways so we could watch some ole biddy backing her tank into a bike...

as Comic Book Guy would say, "Worst coverage, ever."

Hmm,

to put it simply, speed is life...and when I am slow, I get picked clean...LOL.

Never fear, I made enough to make my rent this month...I love the volatility.

Oh, and SpeedTV sucks...
