You need to back down there Larry. I think LE deserved more coverage than he got and it looks like PSM has been pretty well ignored in this thread but no sense in arguing about it. PS & PM are my favorite classes but I love nitro also. I also enjoy bracket racing. For me it's more about the competition than it is about the vehicle. I'm ready for 2011 to get started.

Your perspective comes from what class you like. I like all of the classes but i like PSM the most. The coverage they gave PS cars this Sunday is what they do to the bikes EVERY SINGLE race. Im glad the PSM guys got one good show out of the whole season.

Thumbs down

I think the big issue is:

Why cry and moan to us on Comp+ constantly?

If you sent each and every one of your posts as an email to ESPN, you might have a chance at accomplishing something.

Continuing to gripe on here just makes the rest of us readers tired of reading your complaints. We are not the problem, we cannot solve your probelm, we are tired of you nagging us with your problem.

[QUOTE=RVT1000;100993]
If WJ had been in a similar wreck, went through a long and painful rehabilitation, came back and got into a Championship fight in the last event of the year with Dave Connoly, there would have been just as much coverage because it is a COMPELLING story. [QUOTE]

FALSE.

But if you do believe that, I have some ocean front property in Nebraska I'll sell ya cheap.

I wasn't a moderator back then Rat, but it sure sounds like it's a reasonable rule to implement. So consider it done!

This post is a legitimate and reasonable post. It needed to be addressed and many are in agreement with its premise. If Espn had not covered the first round of nitro and fast forwarded the second round of nitro like they did Pro Stock I would have posted about the unfairness to nitro. Additionally my posts on oildowns have proved to be in the best interests of drag racing and its fans. Even NHRA has recognized in agreement with those like me who have continued to complain about the oildown delays. I agree with your ideal of sending posts to ESPN. I have done this on several occasions.

Oh please. You can't even say that with a straight face. The Nitro cars are the show. Period. Stop pumping.
