    Speed Channel Sucks

    Waiting for WSBK at Assen to start and NASCAR Victory Lane is still on. It's not even a race, just a re-cap show. Can they not clip it?

    And no, I do not know the results as I have stayed away from MC sites till broadcast tiime...

    What the fuck, did the F1 race run long or did the NASCAR race shown on a different fucking channel run long?

    Great...."We now resume the regular scheduled program in progress."

    Speed was also nice enough to tell us who won the race in the ticker, what they didn't feel the f#*@ed us good enough & felt they needed to spoil it for those of us that like see who wins as it happens.

    No, they only do that if I don't watch the recordings until it's to late to record the the next time slot.

    Sent feedback to Speed with the link you provided. But I doubt it will change anything. I've complained before, but NASCAR rules Speed TV.

    At Least Race Two was aired on time without any muck-ups. Damn exciting "stuff" those guys were dealing with!!
    And I was just a couple of clicks away to get my menu to find the next air date and re-record Race One during the original airing. Anyway......
