Its not a question of Nascar, its the particular network/announcers providing the coverage. They all have their plus/minuses. This year I thought TNT was the best (no Rusty) LOL!

Just about everything you said is true at one time or another. The ESPN group just asks the same questions every week. Even Kenny Walace admitted that they had run out of questions to ask Jimmie after this last win.

Do you want to know what I think sucks a lot more than the T. V. coverage, the idiots that start all these stupid polls. This is my vote.

Jaque did pretty well for a while yesterday. He just needs a better spotter or he needs to listen to his spotter.

I really couldn't vote on this one, because my option wasn't up there. It sucks on ABC/ESPN. I thought it was fine on the other networks. A little annoying at times on all networks, but no different than any other sporting event on T.V.

Hey Wood! I agree! Have you seen all the commercial Interruptions on The Sunday and especially Monday night football! I could have strangled them with my bare hands! They would have one and then whoops,there they go with back to back commercials again,I just put my hand on my forehead and practically fall over backwards in a "I give up notion" lol

Between the endless commericals, NASCAR dragging out caution periods, and all that stupid coverage of pit stops; NASCAR has become unwatchable!

yes i think the coverage sucks! it really ticks me off when the go to commercial during the race. they can atleast wait til a caution comes out. i like to see the action as it's happening, not the replay of it after it's already happened.

I like FOX's and TNT's coverage, I wish they could cover NASCAR all year long because ABC/ESPN has been plain bad. It's a big disappointment considering how good ABC/ESPN's coverage used to be. They should bring back Bob Jenkins.

I agree that ABC sucks! Whose idea was it to hire an ex Basketball player as an analyst. You can't tell me there is not a retired driver out there that wouldn't do much better job. I don't see drivers doing BB games so why is he there? Oh I know, he's black and this part of Nascar's diversification program. I know that is why but I don't give a shit about his color, he does not have a racing background and it is a slap in the face of ex drivers that would like to have a shot at that job. Rusty Wallace sucks too. Brent Mucberger and all those women that know squat. I can't hardly stand to listen to those people. Then they wonder why their ratings are down. Fox is a hell of alot better. I used to have a problem with DW but he is ten times better than what ABC has!

What does having a racing background have to do with broadcasting a race? As long as he knows his stuff it shouldn't matter. I watch NASCAR and basketball and know about both sports. Rusty DOES have a racing background and quite frankly i think he sucks as an analyst. Just because he used to play basketball doesn't mean he's clueless about NASCAR. I used to see Bill Weber broadcast some BB games too actually... And how do you know that the only reason why he has the job is because of a diversification program? You may not have intended to, but I think you sound racist.

ESPN SUCKS for NASCAR and baseball they ruin both of them Id rather just listen to the radio feed on the internet. They talk down to everyone watching like its the first event they have ever watched.
