Since FOX is in the business of making money, don't you think if they thought they could make a buck using your theory they would have done it by now? Are you suggesting they're purposely foregoing millions to punish us racing enthusiasts and jam nascar down our throats?



Next time you're watching any kind of racing other than nascar, look at the total absence of paid commercials. The amount of ads is a great way to tell whether anyone is watching or not.



I worked for 5 years in broadcasting so I know a little about this kind of stuff.

And all those people making 50-grand a month in their spare time! I always think, if they can make 50-grand in their spare time why are they working at another job?

I'm glad you glossed me with the financial acumen part because I don't even know what longride's thing is!



Should he see a Dr, or get some cream for that?

Hey, now your being an abrasive A-hole there Buz. Don't go throwing knowledge around this place or people get offended. He can figure out everything for himself, don't ya know. Oh yeah, put the stock pipes back on the Glide. You're losing all that low end torque.

Hell, I don't know what it is either, but I think it means "abrasive A-Hole" in French. I'm cool with it!

Actually, you're not a fourth class viewer. It's probably way lower than that.

I'm trying to hold on to some dignity by bragging about my status as a viewer. But you saw through me.

He's more right than wrong, they've kept knocking the speeds down over and over. I mean if people want to see close racing why don't they just go 60 mph around the track, would be better for the sponsors no doubt. And I've never seen a NASCRAP racer race a motorcycle. They did a show on them one time and they all rode Haaaawrlay's ....

He managed to make a point, not one I totally buy, without saying the opposite view was a no brainer. You seem to rarely be able to do the same. If more people felt welcome here maybe there would be more subscriptions and advertising and we would get more content, not that the content on bikes, gear, and rides isn't excellent. More how-tos, would kind of nice though. I'm always looking to learn...



I never said you were an A-hole. That would be hypocritical.
