Tuned in to watch the Mile High Nationals and it was BASEBALL! The race will be shown in it's entirety after the game. When is that going to be? Am I supposed to sit there and watch the game till it's over? I'm MAD!:mad: You know if you could tune in at the scheduled time and actually see what is supposed to be on, the viewer ratings might actually go up! [email protected] does this all the time, I guess I'll just watch my BASH2 dvd! I wish the BASH3 DVD had come in the mail.:(

:mad::mad::mad:X2 here...! I'm so sick of ESPN I could puke...! I think everyone here should send them a nice E-mail thanking them for ruining our evening...! Like it's our fault the baseball fags had a rain delay... I remember not long ago, I was watching drag racing after one of these rain delays, and only got to watch 2 rds. of eliminations due to another program that was scheduled...

Maybe NHRA should try and get it covered by Spike, or Speed, or someone that might actually give a crap about motorsports...

You guys seem surprised by this? Drag racing has always been the red headed, left handed stepchild to ESPN. I can't understand why they even carry it considering how they treat it:eek:!

Even covering baseball - if you don't live in the New England or East Coast area, who the hell cares about the Red Sox and Yankee stuff that we're bombarded with all the time...?

The baseball is something I don't care about either, but they did have a good program on pulling this morning

Yeah, well I just sent them this in an e-mail, not that it'll do any good at all...:

I just want to let you know that I am sick and tired of missing the scheduled coverage of NHRA programs due to stupid rain delays for a baseball game! I know the NHRA doesn't pay you the millions of dollars for coverage that the other sports do, but it's not the viewers' fault that there was a rain delay! Make the baseball fans stay up late and watch their's, or whatever other stupid sport gets delayed. Maybe the NHRA will wise up and get coverage from an affiliate that cares for our sport...!

If the NHRA would pony up for a better contract with ESPN, they'd be pre-empting somebody else's shitty coverage.
They can't afford to do that...they are losing money as we speak...:rolleyes: They keep raising Fees and yet, they are still losing money? They NEED to get rid of the National Dragster COMPLETELY and let the cost of printing it help lessen the burden of your average racer...every little bit helps.
The NHRA is going to price the "Grass-Roots" racer right out of the sport.:mad:

They won't price the grass roots racer out of the sport...They'll just price 'em out off the NHRA. Hell, they've already got most of 'em on the ropes. Long live the outlaw tracks.
