Default Commercials

If you don't like all of the commercials why don't you send a letter to APBA respectfully asking them to run fewer commercials...........just don't forget to put a check in the envelope to offset the requested decrease in advertising income.

The quality of the productions has increased exponentially in recent years. There is a cost associated with the increase in quality. The sport will advance with high quality productions and a few extra commercials quicker than with a half-ass production on a minimal budget.

I will be glad to send copies of the half-ass productions to those that are new to the sport. You would see the difference.

Default Commercials

As a general rule I don't watch much TV. This is primarily due to commercials. Cable was introduced as a no commercial media (20 years ago) that you could pay a premium for, which I elected to do. Speed channel is one of these and I send in my check every month. If I or others become unhappy with the commercials we can cancel our cable subscription. Not necessary to write letters or send checks unless I am a sponser and expecting something additional return. At this point I am just a paying customer with an observation. Like it or not, way too many commercials in that production. If we were an average "Nelson" family we probably would have tuned this show out after the second 10 minute commercial. Isn't the idea to get more people (and ratings) to tune in?
