Speed is run by a bunch of jackasses that couldn't program a VCR!
They should be running all AMA events Live!
They should run MOST of the GP Events Live, as well. Think about it. Most of the Euro rounds are only 5-8 hours ahead of us. If they grid at 3pm (like most racing) then the US EST clock is only 9am- maybe as early as 7am. Outside of Phillip Island, China, and the Japan rounds you could most certainly run a live broadcast..
Back to AMA- If they run Sunday live in almost every case the grid hits at 3pm. Even on that schedule the latest the East Coast time would be 6pm.
You can't tell me that the "programming" that happens on Speed over the weekend is SO good that they couldn't air an AMA event live.
H3LL!, The Nascar junkies wouldn't have to worry. They don't start programming that stuff until after 11am anyway. And it's over to Broadcast TV by 12pm after that.
Speed- you better step up or we'll start a movement to get the new owners of MO to start working on "pay-for live webcast" via subscription and cut you guys out entirely.
YOU HEAR ME "NEW MR EDITOR"! and the rest of you goofballs ;-)
i've got a bud who sez i need to go, an i'm try to get of of call. I am planing to make peoria, davenport, and west liberty. Still, look for bikes with iowa plates and it may be us, "thunderace, guzzi quota, fjr or a bunch of xs 650s, if not have fun and have one for me!
I was shocked to see info about racing on this "news" site. Lets keep it up! As a response to the Speed TV coments, I have the online subscription for MotoGP and World SBK and I would recommend it for any race fan with a high speed connection.
The AMA needs to farm out their races to Dorna or someone akin to them. The ability to wake up at 3 am and watch in bed on my lap top, revisit great races or watch the race when I want to will get my money. How much in Erou's?
See for a bit of my time today, and a reason to goof off, I got to watch the qualifing for Le Man. The stage is set for tomorrow.....The phone will be shut off, I can hardly wait, oh yeah, no commercials.....
I rode up to Sonoma from LA to watch the races. Maybe if more people showed up at the track (it's pretty barren - even during the Superbike races) we'd get a little more love on SPEED. Except when Junior has a hangnail and we need a three hour special on his dermatologist.
