Why has the coverage of race day live gone to shit? We literally have an hour between practices and they keep running interviews during the practice sessions. Piss poor camera work. No one wants to watch the guy in 20th in b practice. I wanted to give it a few rounds before I bitched but here we are round 3 and it's garbage.

I agree! It pisses me off so bad.

What, you don’t like watching guys roll passed the whoop section for 30 minutes?

Dan is terrible in the booth and Kristen is the worst reporter I have seen in any motorsports

It's 1000 times better than just looking at the times from practice on a spreadsheet. You f'n guys would bitch out about it no matter how much better it get's.

That’s true but bro we pay for this and it’s 2022 not 2001. Plus they’re really trying. That’s the worst part

It's not much better, it's seriously not hard to give a decent product for the ones watching the program. This has been going on for years and they can't get it right. give us fast laps to watch and leave the fluff out of the practice sessions and put it in during track maintenance. It's not a hard concept to figure out.

I’m just glad they are catering to people brand new to the sport and likely not even watching practice

Been waiting for this wave of new fans for 25 years. If the morons in charge would just accept it is what it is and just cater to the true fans the sport would grow. But making it a kindergarten lesson every weekend is making a big difference 😂

Supercross coverage/commentating has been on a steady decline since Daniel "drama queen" Blair started commentating. I understand that none of this is his fault. But just the sound of his voice irritates me, so Ive deceded to complain about it here.

Will it make me feel better? Probably not...but lets give it a try

So let me get this straight... the sound of Daniel’s voice is the reason for the decline in Supercross commentating.... got it 🙄

Yes, his fake/made up drama, the excessive use of the word "serieses", and the staple "Someone told me something, but I cant tell anybody else because I dont know if they want me to tell anyone". Then dont bring it up, Daniel. Theres an idea.

RDL sucks and the commentating sucks.

I watched about 1.5 hours worth of RDL intermittently today at 3 different times, and the only bikes I saw on track was maybe 2 laps of 250C and a bunch of KTM juniors. Literally did not see 1 second of live coverage of any title contender in either class, not a single replay, and not 1 mention of the final qualifying results from either class.

They didn't even mention or show the results at the end of the show. I guess I can just google the reuslts.

Pretty damn anoyying when we pay to see riders qualifying and we get to watch the announcers write contender or pretender on little dry erase boards while bikes are clearly on the track in the backdrop. My wife says why is she (Kristen) licking her finger to erase on a “dry” erase board?

We pay the extra to see what we would be seeing had We showed up at the event to get in early with a monster can. The qualifying, not a couple of dudes and a chick trying to do their best NFL pre game. ITS NOT THE NFL AND NEVER WILL BE. Yes, I said that out loud.

Dan, Daniel, (Kristen), and Joseph we pay to see qualifying, all of it, show it and keep the “fill” for the time when bikes are not qualifying.

Edit: Kristen for Wil. My bad they swap them ups so much it’s hard to keep up plus I tune her out as she whispers sweet nothing half the time

Thanks

I didn't get a chance to watch live and the Peacock app didn't even have the heat races... It shows 250/450 LCQ and main events along with practice that like already mentioned, focused the entire time on the slow guys.

You guys could all just go riding while RDL is on and tune in for the night show.
Just sayin...

Except tuning in for just the night show apparently means no heat races.

The main events were really good, I must say.

DB is a moto darling and people aren't ready to have these conversations yet lol. I like DB and love his insight on color, but he goes a little overboard on the drama and needs to really work on cleaning up his speech if he's going to achieve his dream of the NFL. "Without Question"

I would have, If I could have, but had other priorities. Afterwards, I had some time while waiting for my son to drive down so we could then drive down to SD watch the race live and I tuned in for a bit and what I saw was, well, mostly nothing regarding actual qualifying. just sayin…

Wil ? You watch the show. Bitch about it and don't even know who's on it. It is pretty bad though.

RDL has been a joke since the loss of Holley. Supposedly, it was about the money back then because of COVID. Anyone wondering what they are paying all the "new hires"... It's gotta be more than what they were paying Holley.

Just another kick in the balls to the fans....Just like Ruttledge was. That's all this is.

I can definitely agree that he does an outstanding job in his short segments during the actual night show, but if you give the man more than 30 second of "live air" he just starts spewing. Daniel is knowledgeable and well liked in the industry, and I think he found his sweet spot as a color guy or a track side analysis guy.
