I agree it sucks, but if NBC Sports gets the nod (that’s the hot rumor) it might not be all bad, they do a pretty fine job with IndyCar (IMO). The other rumor i’ve heard is that whomever picks up the broadcast rights here in the states might just show the SKY F1 feed from the UK – which if you haven’t seen before, is simply phenomenal.
It still sucks that they’re breaking up the band. I love Varsha/Hobbs/Matchett/Buxton, and I hope we see them back together soon! The other thing that sucks is that SPEED may be going away entirely, Fox wants to morph it into an ESPN-style network.
Will Buxton has a blog (a damn good one, too), and he wrote a bit about this whole thing, it’s worth a read. If you havent heard, nobody told Will what was happening…he found out that he was losing his job via Twitter (classy, Fox :bang )
