You have that right.
3 more races left ... almost out of opportunities to see Rootledge Wood on my screens.
How will I ever make it through the winter?
YouTube re-watch...Rick Allen's enthusiasm heats my house December thru January
Rutledge is like a cartoon character -- seeing him cowboy posing with the six-shooters was pure entertainment magic.
He's like a rodeo clown that helps divert negative energy away from NASCAR, sacrificing himself for the greater good.
the tony romo effect. Romo is a borderline prophet, now every network is looking for next romo.
I’m campaigning for Ed soundhead to be the new guy in Fox’s booth. He commentates while playing wreckfest and nascar heat on YouTube.
Didn’t The Mormon Tabernacle Choir stab themselves in the eyes with knitting needles?
Let's put Rutledge on this thing, saddle up partna.
Rick Allen is the worst thing to ever happen to NASCAR. He sounds like a WWE announcer and with the pushing of "playoff implications" he genuinely makes our sport look phony and over the top.
If I was running the network, he would have been fired years ago.

“Not a lot of damage!” as Hamlin is bouncing across the infield, tearing up the splitter, was pretty good from Rick.
it's apparent to me that Rick Allen isn't a racing fan. He continues to phone it in every week
Burton immediately went “uhhh.....”.
loved the lead being 1.8 seconds with 3 laps left and Rick Allen acting like it was going ot be a side by side finish
I can't stand to listen to 4 opinions on every little thing. They aren't keeping track of the race which is why they are there in the first place.They didn't seem to know or thought it wasn't important which drivers needed to pit at Texas and which had already pitted, how important strategy was working out, but instead kept trying to make fake drama when there wasn't any. Totally missed what was happening, didn't have a clue. They had a a record number of leaders, but unless the viewers were keeping track, you didn't know if they had stayed out and would need to pit in so many laps or if they were good to the end. That was the real drama they missed IMO.
Shot his arrow too soon
I wish they had Ralph Shaheen, Kyle Petty, Dale Jarrett in the booth. Similar to TNT back in 2009. Ralph is one of the best in motorsports IMO at calling a race hands down.
Dale Jr & Stevie are capable as peacock box guys like DJ & Kyle are now. Honestly I'm not sure on Burton at times, I don't care for him but slide him to Xfinity telecasts or something. Rick Allen should have stayed in Trucks.
Glad you pointed it out. He's done his homework, but he doesn't seem to care. I was watching a special on NASCAR racing in the 70s, and he was one of the people speaking on behalf of that era.

Did anybody else think that NBC's booth coverage seemed considerably toned down today (Phoenix) and there wasn't as much screaming? I thought they talked more in conversational mode instead of like gerbils.
Even Burton didn't seem to talk as much and when he did, he didn't yell. I know a lot of people have been complaining...maybe NBC/NASCAR are finally starting to listen. We can hope at least.
Lap 15 next week, Hamlin leads
"If reg race ended,now, DENNY HAMLIN WOULD bE YOUR CHAMPION"
He still rattled on too much and too repetitious.
Had to watch the last 20 laps on mute.
Burton just needs one of those swirly plastic earpieces
Sadler's quitting FOX
Damn, I like Hermie
yeah me too. He seemed to get along with the drivers more like a friend than a media person.
I'm probably the only one, but I liked Glenn Jarrett. He wasn't the best speaker, but he didn't shout and seemed "down to earth" (a lot like his dad and brother.)
You're definitely not the only one! I loved listening to Glenn Jarrett. He was a GREAT pit reporter and I always enjoyed hearing him talk
Breath of fresh air from the overstuffed gerbils NBC booth / Waiting for Harvick.
Good, I still have a headache from the Gerbils. Man they were tough for me to ignore.
It was mentioned in the Cole Pearn thread that a tv booth job may be an option.
That made me think of the current pack of screaming gerbils and how it may be
time to give "putting these retired race industry guys in the booth" a rest.
Are'nt there any more Paul Pages, or Barney Halls out there in this great big world?
Waiting for Harvick and/or Knaus.
Motor racing broadcaster Bob Varsha starts the new year with a daunting fight to wage after being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of prostate cancer that will require intensive chemotherapy over the coming months.
I know I am going to enjoy the first part of the season.
I am interested in seeing how this goes. I have long been a believer that sometimes less is more. I'm not really sure when it became a contest to see how many talking heads you can assign to cover ONE sporting event.
Ray Dunlap doesn't care anymore.
Ray has done a pretty good job of making himself persona non grata around NASCAR, hasn't he? I always liked his work.
