DanZero: The Bestest: Replays will likely be on FS2

Ugh I get FS1 but FS2 is on the Sports Pass tier for $9 more a month


just scrolled through the next few days of FS1 programming. It looks like they're trying to be a combination of every version of ESPN on one channel, and instead are loading the network with crap. the same UFC special is shown at least 3 times, as is the College Football Kickoff.14 hours overnight of their version of Sports Center. Every night, from the looks of it.

Say what you will about Jr and JJ but when both of them were out of the race we changed the channel

Would have loved to see more dillan or Larson, but they went all Juan Pablo too early


Speak for yourself.  I watched the DVR'd race after reading the thread just so I could see JJ end up in 40th with a DNF.

This is the defendant, Joey Logano. He was behind Mark Martin for much of the end of the race. Mark ran out of fuel, and he passed him to win the race at Michigan. He believes he did nothing wrong. He is accused of, A SHODDY RIM JOB.
