Hate TNT coverage
TNT's coverage is horrible compared to FOX. The biggest problem TNT has is Kyle Petty. That guy is a terrible announcer and shows his lack of knowledge quite often.
It just seems like they don't keep up with the race as well as Fox and ESPN do. I think Dale Jarrett and Larry Mac do a better job of keeping the viewers informed of what's really going on.
I have reached the point where I cannot watch TNT's racing coverage. It was all downhill after the 1st lap. After the initial lap the full screen is taken away and in comes these most annoying banner adds that shrink and distort your full screen viewing. Then the camera starts jumping from one to the next with the analysts rambling on about nothing to do with what is going on. Then time for a commercial. Nascar your damaging your brand and losing regular viewers. Get rid of TNT!
Endless coverage of Danica Patrick battling for 21st while the battle for 1st goes uncovered. Pathetic.
Here's another one for the fire... Since when does an otherwise 'professional' color commentator (and friends) engage in smack-talking while ON-AIR...? It's one thing to voice your personal biases and opinions during interviews, but while calling an event (racing or WHATEVER), it is, in my opinion, the very height of un-professional behavior to start running a competitor down... ("...he's the only one who gets it right..."). Unreal. This (in-the-booth) team makes NASCAR hard to watch.
as a fan of multiple sports, i must say i HATE TNT. it seems like its run by a bunch of high school girls that look up whoever is popular on the internet and talk about them. during the NBA playoffs, all they could talk about was kevin durant, now it seems like the camera can only find kyle busch (personally i dont mind when they get a good shot of him crashing) or jimmie johnson. and lets remind you that danica is fighting for the lucky dog spot... thats easy to say cause thats all she contends for
My biggest thing is SOOO many commercials!
My biggest gripe to any tv coverage is WAY TO MANY COMMERCIALS and the BANNER commercials on the screen , then each commercial is sponsored by yet another commercial...IT'S ALL COMMERCIALS !!! now watch , after 3-4 minutes of commercials and back to the track , a banner with a sponsor thats sponsoring this segment. See how I sponsored with a sponsor , I need to produce races...ha
Thank You, TNT for televising races. And thanks to the sponsors for making it free. Now, lets get the cable companies on board with the cost ... As far as Danica and Kyle goes: Danica is a big story in NASCAR. I dispute the fact that they cover her too much during the race. I just don't see it and am not bothered at all by the coverage she does get. Kyle? Well, he is very opinionated and overbearing much of the time. Yet, so was Howard Cosell - "What's right isn't always popular. What's popular isn't always right." (to quote the great Cosell)
I don't know if im watching a race or a commercial marathon!
All of NASCAR coverage is bad. As for RACEVIEW It sucks and doesn't work. Just shut the hell up DW. Racebuddy is lame and they pick the cars by who's butt NASCAR wants to kiss. Every week Dale Jr, Dale Jr. I like Dale Jr and I even feel sorry for him. How would you like to be Hugh Hefner Jr and gay? Poor fool. I would pay $10.00 every week for just a 5 camera Pay Per View. I grew up next to the track in Daytona and my father used to watch them race on the beach. I've been a fan for all 50+ years but this is my last year. So long Pemberton and kiss my butt.
I agree.. Kyle needs to Go!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't know if TNT had anything to do with it, but that gentlemen start your engines by the two Hollywood clowns and the Shaq was crapola. It was insult the sport, the drivers and support crews, the regular people who work for NASCAR and you and I the fans. Why do they do that kind of crap? It was embarrassing. Come on NASCAR stop making a joke out of something we love and spend a lot of money on....our races and out traditions.
im with you guys TNT SUCKS.. way to many commercials im losing interest FAST, just go away TNT.. im sure fox, speed or espn would gladly pick up the races please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't complain about TV coverage very much, but TNT's so called broadcast of the CocaCola 400 was truely pathetic! If their goal was to see how many commercials they could pack into 3 1/2 hours, they did very well, but lost many race fans in the process. From now on I will catch the highlights on the internet or on the evening news. Even at the end of the race when they said "30 laps to go and no more commercials" they slipped a split screen in at 20 laps I believe it was. Why couldn't they have done that the whole race instead of a commercial every few minutes? No more TNT for me until I hear they have changed their ways.
I agree, i WILL NOT WATCH ANOTHER NASCAR BROADCAST ON TNT, TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED. ill just catch the highlights on speed, not going to waste my time with this anymore, just ridicules.. wow
I completely agree with everything mentioned so far with TNT coverage. Not only do they pack in so many commercials that you miss most of the action, they cannot seem to broadcast a clean signal. I battle through the race today with constant cutting out of the picture and audio. I hope NASCAR does not renew the contract with them. FOX and ESPN do it right! Get rid of TNT!!!
and they blamed marcus for knocking off kasey when johnson blocked marcus causing him to go left and hit kasey
Banner adds taking up a quarter of the screen, endless commercials, Wow NASCAR your product is pathetic.
Kyle Petty is an absolute disgrace as a race announcer/color commentator!! He never cut it as a driver. He couldn't live up to his dad's name. Kyle should admit that he was just a "field filler" (as Jeff Gordon calls it) every Sunday. He posed no threat to win races. He let Felix Sabates take his grandfather's number away from Petty Enterprises/Richard Petty Motor Sports and now Jaun Pablo Montoya is disgracing the number!! Sorry Kyle, you aren't a "has been", your a "never was"!
TNT, loose Kyle and just go with Wally!!
