I feel like I missed the beginning half of the race. 3/4 of the main event is split screen whether it's daniel blair talking about ruts in the start while watching webb ride by himself in the other screen. There's a 5 way battle going on for 3 whole seconds and we cut to webb riding around by himself. Cut back to malcolm on the ground, show a replay. Cut back to webb. Ferrandis on the ground. Show a replay. Cut back to webb. Then some action. Then more split screen with tomac riding around in 9th by himself. It was almost unbearable. Let alone the fact that Musquin goes down and no update, no replay. He just goes away. But we have replays that we show from 3 different angles of a 450 lcq crash.

It's like they let the interns run the supercross show.

So, you don't like the TV coverage?

You should try calling the 800 number for the results and just stop watching silly

No, that award goes to the race where they showed a replay from the previous week on the last lap.

If you're fine with less than mediocre, then that's your choice man. You do you. But if you can't see that there's been a decline, then your expectations aren't very high to begin with.

No mention or coverage of who's in the top five until 5 minutes into the race. I couldn't believe it. Just Webb, and where Rozcen was.

Not sure if it was my cable provider or something on the broadcast end but my screen kept freezing throughout the entire broadcast, not doing it on any other channel....it’s live SX, so we will always watch, but I”m thinking a high school production club could put out better a better quality production.

Remember the good ol' days, when we'd just bitch about Ralph and Jeff, and Juliana's social media segments with weirdos watching the broadcast on dirtbikes, in their living rooms?

Yeah, I never thought I'd miss those days, either! sad

He's definitely not perfect, but he's doing it on live national television.

Absolutely the worst. It’s has gotten a little worse each race but tonight it took a big tumble.

Diffy and RC were so much better the first couple. They complimented the racing not distracted from it.

Production and race coverage wasn’t great to begin with but now it’s atrocious. No flow, jumping all around... it’s really amazing how poor tonight was.

I feel like I’m watching clips of a race and not an actual race.

And for all of you that ask could I do better... it’s not what I do. But if I ran my business this poorly I would be out of business... so, yeah, in my line of work fuk yeah I do better.

Just a thought but its possible that the TV production crew might be understaffed because of covid restrictions. It wouldn't surprise me if they were having to make due with less. In any event I'm just glad that there is racing and that Im able to see it live and not have to wait till the next Cycle News to read about it.

I would say the race was boring which leads to bad coverage cause what else is there to watch when it's start cross and the track doesn't make it good for racing

|

3/13/2021 8:52 PM

Every time they switch from a great battle just to watch the leader ride over the finish I just want to pull my damn hair out.

It was the 250 main this time

It wasn't boring, though! A lot of crazy shit happened tonight. But between the awful camera work, technical glitches, and odd commentary, it got all muddled up. It lacked any sense of cohesiveness or plot. No one was on the same page.

Absolutely the worst commentary and coverage ever. I watched some 90’s stuff the other day. Man it was so exciting. No weird story’s during the race. No replays from last year. Way better camera work. I miss the good old days when they actually called the race during the race. Bailey calling Stewart’s races was gold. Dude was truly excited and you could feel it. Not like today’s mundane commentary.

It was pretty bad today. For the love of god can they stop following the leader after the race is done when there’s a killer battle going on. I don’t give a shit how they make it up to the podium. Bondo needs a clippy clippy
