After Fox continued to try and make several of the drivers come up with a better name for that stupid Gopher Cam just now, Kurt Busch tactfully pointed out to them how they didn't originate the technology.  Hahahahahaha!  He said "it reminds of seeing the tread cam used at Indiannapolis Raceway Park years ago..."  Way to go, Kurt!  Fans and John Daly were pointing the same fact out all over the interest all last week - how ESPN originated this device and even won Emmys for the technology.  It was really nauseating how Fox was trying to get Jeff Gordon and Matt Kenseth to "name" the thing and they both tactfully refused to play.  But Kurt topped them both with his subtleness.  Smooth move!   laugh

Almost two hours into the broadcast, and Fox is still making their reporters badger every single driver into naming the camera.

Yeah, but at least the other racing series don't have to come up with a cutesy name for it.

Okay, Martin even topped Busch saying "if I hit it, it's going to be the stupid-cam."  That was hilarious! laugh

BTW, how many times over the last 2 1/2 hours has Fox said "we'll be racing within the hour?"  How more blatant can they get in trying to make sure people don't change the channel.  Ugh...

UGH, here's an idea for Fox, how bout give it no name and get rid of the graphic every time they use that shot.  Whats next, giving a name to the tower cam, or the cam coming out of turn 4

I simply love the faces almost every driver gave them when they were asked about the stupid thing!   laugh
