With each passing day, my hatred for SPEED TV grows.
d-bags. SpeedTV? More like rednecks-r-us-tv.
I got a cold, a sore throat, Hawks lost. Is it too much to ask to watch a complete moto race, goddammit?
wth is with speed channel?......was watchin the race...then they switch to Nascar crap half way through.....:rant
The moto2 broadcast? Shit, I was just about to watch it too! How much of the race did they cut?
Speed Channel, the new History Channel. All the same sorta content, all the time, with no substance.
I've been watching more of the Fuel channel lately.
It's like 618 on my sat...
Speed has gone steadily down hill ever since NASCAR bought them out about 2-3 years ago. (or nascar's brother in law, whatever...)
From what I have read, Speed is likely gone by the end of the year, Fox Sports will be making it something else.
Fox is involved? That explains it. These are people who are intellectually capable of cancelling Firefly and hiring Sarah Palin.
Been a lot of discussion about it among the Formula 1 fans. Speed is going away, converting to the Fox Sports Network. Given their track record with news, I suspect they'll just make up winning scores for the teams they like. NBC is planning on to broadcast all the F1 races and from what I hear, it's going to be much better than Speed's coverage. What will happen to MotoGP and Moto2 I don't know.
Get the MotoGP pkg - or - learn how to use bit torrent and download the races. The Eurosport/BBC coverage is WAY better. The Euros cover a motorcycle race like we cover the NFL. The only thing I watch on SPEED is the AMA stuff.
