Why are lot of people going to discord's NASCAR page/site/forum? What's the appeal? I mean, what's the difference between discord and SA, which is a place all of us helped create and maintain?

I'm seriously curious because I don't know anything about discord.

Discord is a platform like IRC but you can post pictures inline. There's one that KidC started for SASCAR. That's all.

edit this is what it looks like

FS1 is running another of their Beyond The Wheel episodes featuring various 30-for-30 style shorts about NASCAR right now. These tend to be really good- the Dick Trickle one was the first.

They're talking about NASCAR in Japan right now. NASCAR, in Japanese, translates to "Eggplant Question Mark".


No, it's WWE. Pnut made a reference to "the guy who kicked Stan" once in one of these threads.

On a different topic, did anyone else catch Wallace referring to Richard as "The King"? I know that Kyle refers to him as The King, and I've always found that super weird, but hearing Wallace refer to him as The King made me stop and ask if Richard actually wants to be called The King to his face. If that's true, if Richard Petty actually goes by "The King" in his daily life it makes me wonder just how obnoxious he must be. I mean, the man is a legend, and I hope he's an all around decent guy (though there are red flags concerning Tim Richmond, kneeling for the anthem, to name two) but man, if you tell people to call you "The King" that's something else.

What are you gonna call him, Richard?

I have no idea what Liberty is, I'm presuming we're talking the college for people who couldn't get into Trump University.

It's a school founded by Jerry Falwell, a television preacher. His hits are:

Starting up the Moral Majority and telling his viewers to vote Republican which offended even other televangelists
Calling Martin Luther King "dangerous"
Supported Apartheid
Invented the "Bill Clinton is a serial killer" conspiracy
Said America deserved 9/11 because of all the "pagans and feminists"

also I'm pretty sure Liberty was founded as a whites-only school and only allowed integration when the IRS revoked its tax-exempt status.

Dude, I'm not paying for yet another service. This is the bullshit of cord cutting, you end up paying for 10 different services, all for $20/month, and you pay just as much as you were before for 100 channels. I get my TV through my PS4 for $45/month. If I have to pay for another app just to watch NASCAR I'm going to throw a loving poo poo fit since I got Playstation Vue just to watch my loving sports. There's no chance in hell I'd pay for F1 or Indy since I already get them on Vue.

On a different topic to complain about : the coverage sucks. I'm not talking about Joy, DW, or Gordon, I'm talking about the shooting of the race. Since I've been on a kick lately of watching old races, I have found it interesting how the direction of races has changed over the years. This isn't news to you guys, but today's races are shot horribly! I blame it on having too many options for the director to choose from. We cut from one close up shot to another, and never get a good sense of what's going on. We rush from one in car camera, to another door/wheel camera, to a "wide" shot, back to wall mounted cam, all within 30 seconds or less. I didn't even notice it anymore, until I really paid attention to the old races. The wide shots from races up until 2001 give you such a better perspective on the action, you can really get a feel for the flow of the race. Today, with dozens of cameras to choose from, the director is constantly switching from one to the next, all zoomed in tight, and it leaves the viewer disoriented to how the action fits into the larger picture. Even when they use a "wide" shot, I was surprised how tight the shot really is. At Martinsville, multiple times they used the camera at the top of the tower and followed the action, but the shot was so tight that you couldn't get any feel for what was around them. All of this can be best summed up last week by that loving camera mounted on the outside pit wall. They used it multiple times to show the action on the track, and while it was cool it was useless in conveying any information to the viewer.

I'm not trying to be all "the old ways were better", some of the camera work from the old races is loving awful, but today's issue is entirely of NASCAR's own making. Zoom out a little (though I'm sure sponsors hate that), user fewer specialty cameras, and hold your shots longer. This doesn't seem like rocket science.

Kevin Dunn Syndrome. The more cameras a director has at his disposal the worse the footage becomes.

A certain official research group of NASCAR sent out a survey about Buschwhacking and also asked why I don't watch Xfinity. I politely reminded them that they're about 10 years too late as the series was turbofucked then, but then suggested they don't run as many cookie cutters where Kyle bulldozes the field.

I can't wait to see how badly they bungle whatever might result.
