I think he is doing well and the fact that he is mastering the Well/Good Rule is impressive. To hear another "he is riding gud" would be brutal.

I also like the McGrath segment. Pretty good show so far.

RC has clearly been working on the delivery.

He seems to have dropped the habit of saying OK so much, which is a good thing.

I was impressed too. But I still wish they could have incorporated Emig somehow.

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not too sure.

I think he did well. He and Ralph will improve their chemistry as the season goes on.

I think he did a good job tonight. It’s funny, honestly if I didn’t know ahead of time I’m not sure how soon I would’ve realized Jeff wasn’t there. No negativity towards him, the show just seemed to flow as it normally would

RC was super solid during the afternoon qualifier, a little shaky starting the night show (understandably) but really got in his groove as the night went and really added some great insight. Overall, for the first time being THE analyst, great job!!! He will get better and I like the chemistry between all 4 team members. Very strong.

As RC would say - he did good. Not well but good.

Guess home schooling doesn’t cover adjectives and adverbs (my mom used to beat me with a hairbrush when I confused the two and when I hear “he’s doing good” it’s like fingernails on a chalkboard)

He has slowed his cadence and actually did well - but I do miss Emig.

Ricky is more enthusiastic than Emig anyway. Couldn't give a damn if he says something incorrectly.

The broadcast tonight was really solid. Ricky had a lot more to say than Jeff usually did, so it wasn't Ralph doing the whole call. The plug for the Dakar Rally was cool too.

The first heats were rough but he got better and better and I actually enjoyed it in the mains. If he continues to improve then I think it'll be really good

I thought they did a good job. I tend to get caught up in the racing and don’t pay that close attention to some of the stuff they say. I get more pissed at the guy calling the camera shots. I usually know a pass has happened or someone crashed by the crowd reaction in the stadium.

Is the director the one that tells them what camera to go to? Anyway, I can’t stand them. I am certain they do their best to miss action.

I just listen to some classic rock on my home stereo when I watch the races and turn the sound off on my TV. I record the races on my DVR and wait one hour until I start to watch the races if they are live on TV. I do not need or want the NBC Gold package. I fast forward until I see a gate drop and watch the races to the checkered flag and then fast forward to the next gate drop until the last 450 main checkered flag. I only want to watch the races, not a bunch of commercials or all the other stuff during the show.

I'm not sure if what something they're required to work into the broadcast, but his comment about how many people stuck it out in the rain was impossible to believe looking at the screen and all the empty seats on it. Other than that I thought he did very well.


Empty a bag of skittles into the toilet and then flush. It's like watching a five second long nascar race.

They talked shit through a lot of key points like when Wilson had removed his goggles while leading which lead to his loss of positions more than likely.

You guys are delusional. He is still awful even if he has gotten better and is not at the caliber of a national television broadcaster.

He did say he had never seen a gate lock up before. Come on now. Same for double goggles.

I didn’t have a single issue with him all night. But I wasn’t looking for anything to bitch about either. One time I did find myself wishing Emig was in there as well, but that’s only because I liked him too. I’m fine with either one of them, he’ll put them both in there and I’m still gud. tongue
