I know a few months ago we all go into it about Danica, but I think it's worth bringing up that when she got into that wreck yesterday my first thought was "please don't be hurt." Yea, it wasn't a particularly bad crash, but it would have been a terribly poetic ending to her career. Reading/hearing her interviews this week has just furthered our understanding of her interest in brand building, something that was very unlikely to be helped by one more race. It was a cash grab from someone that can't possibly need the money she got from finishing 35th. There was no upside to it yesterday, clearly the passion is gone, she's financially secure, and she doesn't want to tie her brands to her racing history- so what's there to gain? I really, REALLY, wish that she would sit out Indy since we've seen a lot more career/life ending accidents there than in NASCAR in recent years.

Do we have to rehash this again? The answer hasn't changed.

No, there's no need to rehash the same points, but I thought it worth mentioning that I held my breath for a moment yesterday.

To be fair to - I know we disagree on a lot of this, but I am also not looking forward to watching her at Indy. She hasn't driven an open-wheel car in seven years, hasn't driven a DW12 ever, and this new aerokit has drastically reduced downforce. I can't imagine anything good happening.

I know there have been certain people who have been vocal about Indycar going full OTT with its streaming service, but at the end of the day the easiest and cheapest way to get a lot of people watching your product is to have as many races as possible on OTA broadcast television. I'd watch a race on TVówith commercials!óover a sketchy stream any day of the week.

First off - just do both! F1 is launching an OTT service in the US, but they also made a deal with ESPN (which isn't OTA, but is close enough, and is as good as F1 is gonna get). OTT is quite obviously the future, and people clearly don't want to watch ads if they don't have to. Secondly - eyeballs ain't worth what they used to be. The advantage of OTT is that a fan is paying NASCAR directly, rather than NASCAR having to convince a bunch of companies to pay them just for exposure, which is harder and harder to do these days. And as much as you guys want to have a reason to criticize NASCAR, this problem isn't unique to them.

It's not just sports, it's all the other poo poo you need to buy to watch that one show you like:

Netflix
Amazon Prime
HBO GO
Playstation Vue
MLB App
NASCAR App
etc

It's not unthinkable that you would need all of these apps/services, or more, to replace what you use to get in one place- and you very well could be paying more for it. Eventually consumers are going to either revolt, or just give up because they need to have 10 apps. I really don't see how OTT services are going to be profitable enough by themselves that cable television will be cut out. If the NFL has struggled to launch their own service, then I don't have faith it anyone else pulling it off.

What makes you think the NFL is struggling to launch a service, or even trying? They are still big enough that traditional broadcasters pay them billions without hesitating, and important enough that fans will subscribe to whatever they need to watch NFL.

Cable TV is dying and OTT is its replacement, this is largely indisputable. The problems youíve posed are all solvable. The idea of cable sticking around as a force long-term is laughable.
