Default Flood the board with endless video...by Freeze Frame

Am I the only one on this board that thinks less is more? I certainly think Jeff has some of the greatest video of offshore on the planet but the daily barrage of video, half of which I don't think he had anything to do with other than putting his name across it, seems a bit much. I love watching some of the old school offshore as much as anyone. I guess maybe I have a hangup about him claiming everything. I know he butted in on Stu's boat show run last year and then posted it just calling it a fun run to Key Largo. This kind of thing reminds me of Boat Pix. Hey this is all just my opinion and you know what they say about those.

I say keep posting, I love the old stuff and look forward to his daily posts. If not for Gerardi and Lewis (NNRT) there would be virtually no video history of offshore racing

I know it's advertising, but he needs to make money to be at the events to document it for us. Plus I like to see the old timers running hard.

I say let it fly--- The guy is probably just trying to create some interests in his videos.

I'm sure he is hurting like many of us.

Honestly tho, isn't there a section solely dedicated to video??? I agree the videos are cool but why not post them where they belong? Otherwise other advertisers will do the same and this could turn into a total spam forum. Just my .02.
