Thumbs down AMA Pro Racing TV Show

In my opinion this is a stupid idea. I would much rather watch full live races. Not Ralph Sheheen giving highlights...

This seems to indicate that there will be flag to flag racing aired.

Quote:
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 18, 2009) - AMA Pro Racing and SPEED announced today an innovative and unprecedented new programming format that will see 2009 AMA Pro Road Racing events, highlight coverage of other AMA Pro disciplines and a variety of in-studio and at-event features showcased every Saturday evening in the AMA Pro Prime Time show on America's leading motorsports television channel.

The 26-week run for AMA Pro Prime Time begins March 21, and will air every Saturday night on SPEED at 10 or 11 p.m. ET (7 or 8 p.m. PT), with each program ranging in length from one to three hours depending on weekly content. The programming schedule will feature flag-to-flag coverage of every 2009 AMA Pro American Superbike and AMA Pro Daytona SportBike race, ample coverage of other AMA Pro Road Racing divisions and select exposure of other motorcycle disciplines under the organization's umbrella.

The race programming will be packaged within a studio show that will offer viewers a variety of features, including in-studio guests, expert analysis, breaking news announcements, motorcycle unveilings and much more. Popular SPEED personality Ralph Sheheen will be the in-studio host for AMA Pro Prime Time while the race coverage team will be anchored by host and play-by-play announcer Leigh Diffey, pit reporter Greg White and a to-be-named analyst.
And there is more at the link I posted... I believe it also says that the D200 will be aired live. (I didn't cut and paste that part.)

The way i interpreted that section was that they are going to show the highlights from the race or maybe skip the "boring" parts. I could be completely wrong though. I hope I am

Sucks that we don't get live coverage for the season. It's gonna be hard not to read the results online beforehand (even some of Speed's shows have a ticker at the bottom giving spoiler results)

Ralph is a dumbass. I am curious to see Speed's interpretation of flag-to-flag racing. I will be very surprised (and happy) if they actually do who entire races

Also are they going to delay the races a week before we can watch them. Come on most of us surf the web daily how are we going to avoid race results. I know I cant sometimes even when I have them DVR'd.

Dumbass idea .....

Who watches AMA anyway?
I know of two guys that race in the superbike series and I still don't watch it. Don't stress just watch WSBK.

typically i'd agree but i do enjoy the Supersport races and am kinda interested in seeing what effects the new rule changes have on the racing this year.

Also am interested in seeing how Josh Hayes does on the factory Yamaha
