I will present you with my current response whenever I hear his name.

F'n Johnny Rea!!!

or

Johnny F'n Rea!!!

Depends on day.

Not a big fan of that prick.


DVR stated HD.

That sure as hell was no damn HD coverage. I thought there were supposed to be on board cameras this season too. Why weren't those used?? C'mon dammit!!!

What tire issues? The only tire issues I heard about during the Phillip Island race was which compound to use because of the rain earlier in the day.

Good so it wasnt my TV. Seemed like I was watching a really old race or something. Was hoping Haga would do a little better..oh well.

Hopefully it was just the cameras for that race that sucked and the other races will actually be in HD.

It's a problem on speed's end.

I watched the eurosport broadcast and it was clear and fine.

Ok. I just assumed it was the cameras because some sporting events in smaller cities don't have HD cameras and their picture quality is crappy like we saw during the race. I am basing this off of watching NHL games.

From my experience, it's the same problem plaguing the NHL Center Ice package. Tons of games, but at such poor quality you don't even want to watch them. Like others suggested, it probably isn't the cameras, but something with the HD uplink or distribution.

Yeah this is the first year I have not had the center ice package and I hate it. Philly always seemed to be the worst picture quality. It is always the same teams that have the crappy pictures. Nothing beats a NHL game in HD.


To get back on subject, I think a little cockiness is a good thing. Although being too cocky is a bad thing like in Biaggi's case.

Meaning..the picture wasn't completely overexposed and the picture quality wasn't comparable to a 70s quality CRT box?
