    I'd like to hear the rational too.

    I suspect it's a budget thing, still ... only one hour???

    Maybe Discovery Channel will be carrying it. Certainly an opportunity
    for them to step up.

    Coming off of record high ratings and they are worried about the cost????
    If they gave the Vuelta some air time they could get some good ratings.
    Maybe not as high as the TDF, but they wouldn't have to spend as much
    to produce the show either.

    Hopefully, this is just a negotiating tactic. I read somewhere in an
    article about Phil and Paul that OLN resells their coverage to other English
    speaking countries (New Zealand and Australia I believe). Maybe someone
    down the line is trying to low-ball them. Maybe the Vuelta itself is trying
    to up the fee.

    I know I'm grasping at straws here, but....

    Make sure you let them know how you feel.

    They went over budget spending all the money on
    Al Trautwig's TdF salary.

    Why did we get that ugly dressed down dried up old fart instead of that hot blond lady?

    Imagine ESPN showing only the last out of the World Series ... "the pitch ...
    FAST BALL ... THE CUBS WIN THE PENNANT !"

    Thanks for watching, see you next year.
