    As pessimistic as I usually am, the last 5 days of posts in this thread have left me with a faint feeling of hope.

    I can live without versus a little while longer. F*** Comcrap.

    the league generates fewer ratings than the nhl, and this was before dtv pulled versus from its lineup. plus there is no buzz at all from the league, in fact there are more questions and none of them are positive. no one watches league racing and no one watches versus. i doubt seriously that its in preparation for sunday's race in sao paulo. that race may have quite a few people there, but only because there are quite a few brazillians involved in that race (kanaan and castronodashneves and matos as drivers and deferran as an owner). the true test is the domestic market and the league is unquestionably a failure there. no one comes to races. no one watches on tv. fewer people are going to the irl 497.5.

    i'm more likely to believe versus is coming back in time to show the stretch run and the playoff push rather than a series so meaningless nielson is no longer going to provide ratings data to media outlets despite doing it for at least 2 years no problem.

    He didn't infer that Versus was coming back because of the race this weekend. He simply suggested that it would likely be back prior to this weekend. The coincidence mentioned pertained to all the right sources saying all the right things, leading us to believe an announcement is imminent.

    But I thought on the internet men were men, women were men, and little girls were FBI agents?

    This throws my whole perception of reality into question... down is up, left is right, cats love dogs, and american beer tastes good.... :eek2:

    I'm also doubtful that versus return will be spurred by any specific event. Even the stanley cup playoffs dont rate high enough to get the channel back specifically for that. At this point its a combination of the NHL, Cycling, Racing, and Fighting.

    And it looks like I'll be watching tonighs Versus game live on the internet again, if I bother with it. I dont even know whos playing tonight on Versus.

    Well Alexander the Great should make short work of those burnt out solar husks. I'll be content with the Jackets @ Kings later tonight.

    Hehe. It obviously is coming to a head with the playoffs soon, etc. Also, I would certainly hope they had it by July for the Tour De France, which could be very interesting this year.

    For me, I usually don't watch much hockey until postseason play, so I'm hoping it can get organized by then. <shrug>

    I never really cared about the Jackets before, but ever since I got Center Ice I've been developing a soft spot for them. Maybe I'm just a sucker for underdogs and long shots.

    Then again they are the expansion brethren of my Wild.

    rumor source verification has been discussed above. Its a 10 on the believe it if you want to scale.

    Mass produced American beers are horrid, but there are a number of micro-brewers making good product. Non-American beer usually is stale by the time it gets here. Drink local.

    The 3/22 date sounds good to me. In time for the playoffs and my last Sabres game on VS. Hope your right!
