I didn’t get tot see the coverage of the Tour Down Under last night. I also forgot to set my recorder. So, I wasn’t able to see any of the coverage on Versus. Ah, but never fear… there is always YouTube.
Thing is, I bet that by the time you take the commercials out of the Versus coverage, you are left with about the same amount of video. I think next time I’m going to get out my stop watch and see how much of the 30 minute program ends up being advertising.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad that Versus is covering the event. However, is it too much to dream that someday that coverage will be a bit longer with a little more insight into the stories surrounding the events and riders?
