Did we piss NBC off enough that they shoved him down our throats for about triple the TV time today? His extra TV time felt like a big middle finger to us “rednecks”.

At least he learned what start blocks are. Thank God.

He will be explaining the 30 second board on Tuesday. Him and the AMA are about on the same level in my opinion.

I just muted that phucktard whenever he spoke during the race. Any non race segments he appeared in were fast-forwaded through.

Piss on you NBC for forcing this douchebag on us.

Forget Rutledge... Way too much NASCAR discussion and comparisons. Leigh Diffey trying to take the call in the main and make a NASCAR example from last week fell flat.

I just hit that 🔇 button every time I hear him.

Short answer, no. It's hard to comprehend I know but NBC is not worried about a couple hundred (generous number) on vital complaining. Rutledge is there for the masses, not the 12 people on here that complain about everything. I think he does a good job for people who don't watch all the time, like the thousands that watched yesterday because it was during the day and nothing better to do

There are no masses.

You do realize they shortened the races to get the monster trucks in? That paired with rutledges nonsense, and the some how trying to relate nascar finish’s, are they trying to use our growing sport to advertise these dying ones?

How does Rutledge have so much pull? All I can figure is he’s got family high up at NBC, really. He’s got less social media followers than a lot of the riders, but the still show him in his basement and wearing funny suits like we’re supposed to relate? Or know/care. Maybe I’m the insecure redneck that Rutledge is determined on turning away?

I miss Jenny!

Let's say the dumbing down and showing less of the actual racing does attract more newbies. What happens when they learn enough to realize the coverage sucks? You can attract all the new customers you want, if your product is shit they won't be back, right?

We are the sum of a 1,000 lives. What we know is almost nothing at all.

They shortened the main for track maintenance because they had a national broadcast slot on NBC. If they ran long they would’ve cut the feed. Supercross doesn’t have the pull to run long.

Does anybody really think there are thousands of people watching SX for rhe very first time, i personally don't think so. Id guess 90 percent are those that have always watched, new viewers are probably friends of those already watching.

No other sport that i watch dumb down their broadcast for new viewers, as example NFL seem to be getting more technical, color analysts providing indepth info, even the sideling reporter is usually discussing an injury, not dicussing rugby, nascar, or anything non reletex to the game.

Mx/sx is too small to influence any content provider.

Actually NBC would be smart to put together a focus group of actual motocross riders and get their feedback on their coverage of Supercross. Or just read the threads about coverage and Rutledge on Vital. That way they wouldn't have to buy anyone lunch.

The producer continues to cut away to the first place finisher even though there are riders still racing for position. It's annoying to say the least. The "score" board takes up too much of the left hand side of the TV. It makes the riders look like they are chasing the left side of the TV. It's annoying too. Will Christien said some stuff, I'm not sure what. Take the mask off, you're more than 6' away from the camera. I guess she did give it the old college try when she did a segment from the pits about something or other.

I like Todd Harris way more than Diffey. Something about Diffey just doesn't gel with me. And no it's not his accent or his lame sports jacket.
