Here's an interesting article from David Poole, who was invited to the ESPN production truck Friday night:

I agree that it had to hard for the announcers to talk while being bombarded with direction in their headsets.  Many times when I attened NASCAR races in the past, I listened to the TV feed for ESPN/FOX or NBC and heard the "director talk" to the announcers.

Did I read this right?  Rich Feinberg told David Poole that ratings are down in part because the post-race show is too long? Huh?

Seriously, I must credit ESPN for letting Poole in to try to counter his recent negative comments.

Besides, didn't NBC/TNT counter that in the past by creating a separate "Nextel Post-Race Show" when they had extra time so that ratings for the race broadcast would cease at the checkered flag? There's no reason ESPN can't do the same.

Yeah, but ESPN always has some [more important] sport to switch to after the race.   Angry
