Yes, they both are good but I mentioned Kyle because I think he's the better of the two.I am in no way a KDB race car driver fan, but, like you said above, I thought he and his brother Kurt did a great job, both were cool calm and collected with pertinent info of what was happening on track, plus, they had friendly Brother banter between them.
Yes they would be great in the booth.
Don't worry about offending the people on here that like the NBC booth. I don't think there are very many of them.No offense meant to the guys that like the NBC booth but they are awfully shrill to me. They also get all worked over small things and I find them to be distracting. I usually watch the race with the volume on low and turn it up when something is happening.
The NBC commentary both is relentless. I mean, they never shut up, not even for five seconds.I break it down this way. To Rick Allen's credit, he has good energy and does good with the play by play aspects. It's obvious he does his diligence in going over the notes and such that NASCAR provides to all of the media members. His problem is he doesn't know the nuts & bolts, under-the-hood of the sport like Mike Joy does. So, he's not able to add in anything extra.
Larry Mac hasn't been a crew chief for decades, but he puts Letarte to shame when it comes to explaining the different ways the pit strategies will play out and he's able to do it 100s of laps ahead of time. As for Dale Jr and Jeff Burton, something has to give there. There's too many calling the races between all 4. When Burton gets excited, his voice gets way too high-pitched for me. Somebody needs to tell these guys there's nothing wrong with not saying anything and letting the viewers hear 15 to 30 seconds of ambience from the race cars every so many laps.
It's frustrating, because I believe when it comes to camera work, NBC has been spot on....they just need the voices to go along with it.
Brad will be a great addition to the broadcast.Brad Daugherty joins the NBC Sports NASCAR broadcast team and is scheduled to make his debut during the Michigan doubleheader weekend Aug. 8-9.nascar.nbcsports.com
It's a good non gerb move IMO. It's more than enough to hear them all race long but at the beginning and end also? Less is more. Thanks Brad, thanks NBC.Brad Daugherty joins the NBC Sports NASCAR broadcast team and is scheduled to make his debut during the Michigan doubleheader weekend Aug. 8-9.nascar.nbcsports.com
My favorite Brad Daugherty moment was the joy he showed when AJ Allmendinger won at Watkins Glen. He picked his diminutive driver up and hugged him.It's a good non gerb move IMO.

We are fortunate to be on this forum. I mean, how many people in the world could read the phrase "non gerb move" and be able to comprehend its meaning?It's a good non gerb move IMO.
