Hi All

Firstly I do not work for TVNZ or any entity associated with TVNZ - I just asked a question on the website and got an answer.

HMMMMMMM... Betta Electrical Sandown 500 - on 3rd September, yes that is right, that I watched along with many other people here in NZ on the 3rd of September at 10.30pm 'till 1.30amish. If you watched it on the 10th, you had a package of highlights that was about an hour long.

Also, did I say YOU mentioned the ad breaks supercar_freek, there are other posts in this thread, I was making a general post not talking to you personally!

When I said races don't fit into the 3 hour slot I also was not necessarily talking about Sandown - there are races such as PI this weekend which had a race at 2.30pm, then another and 5.30pm live, outside the broadcasting times which, as Smeged has pointed out, are dictated by the TVNZ charter (so putting the show on earlier might solve one problem, but won't fix the last race .

As for NZ motorsport not being shown sooner, yeah, that does suck, but as Azza500 pointed out, how many people would get out to the track if it was on TV live!

By the way moving pictures cover the NZ events not TVNZ they just buy the footage or contrat them to do so

oh and tracy i dont think that the delayed coverage of NZ events is a good thing, as there are plenty of people out there that cant get to a track ie disabillity, insuficiant finance and those that do find the facilities completely sub standard for there dollars.
even though im born an bread in NZ still think that its the only 2nd world nation on the planet to well developed to be considered 3rd World but nowhere near enough to be considered 1st world

watch what happenes at Taupo A1GP meeting will be a first class category at a second rate facility even with the upgrades, oh and do they seriously think they will handle all the extra people in redneck holliday retirementville i dont think so cant wait for the Caos

Getting accommodation is going to be interesting in those parts because you've also got the Superstock World 240s on that weekend in neighbouring Rotorua... live coverage would be more important than ever to some.

Still, bright side of that is that TV3 have the broadcast rights for that....

If you don't like Taupo or the residents there just say so but there is no need for crap like what you posted there. Fairly inaccurate as it is may I add going by my last trip there a week ago.

Actually if you read this again, Laser you'll find the topic is NZ television coverage. A bit more generalised, and probably should be in the NZ section as previously suggested.

Put your placard away.

Read the first post my friend, but here are the key quotes :

- Geoff Brian and his way of hosting the V8 Supercars
- the 10 minuet Chris Pither thing in Bahrain
- when we were waitng to watch the V8s??
- in the middle of race 2
- the second race he had an add break after about every 5 laps.

V8Supercars or not here ?

Television coverage is the common theme... and it goes back to what I said about digressions and the natural evolution of a thread.

And the points I was making was how important live coverage is for the reasons I stated re the 240s and A1GP - accommodation is a problem in those parts when two major events are on in a smaller part of the NZ community. I don't think this is off topic at all, just in the wrong message group. This topic went off topic ages ago by your standards, but it illustrates to anyone reading this about how a thread or conversation evolves. This also vindicates some other remarks I've made on this subject about subjectivity on what exactly constitutes on or off topic. Especially when remarks are taken out of context like that, something that was surprising coming from you. Move this reply to a new thread if you wish and penalise accordingly - quite frankly I can't be bothered with it myself.

Back ON topic - Yeah... tvnz coverage needs improvement... 2007's another year... (yawn)

hey viper have just come back from there this weekend myself and have had alot of dealings with people within taupo so i think i know what im talking about at one stage was living there for at least 6 months of the year anybody ever told you about the no right turn rule during holliday time as the roads and infastructure cant handle the traffic congestion dont forget the highest teen pregnancy and truancy rates in NZ anyway back on topic i hope that TVNZ get there act together regarding the V8SC coverage and show more live content and stop putting race three on late sunday night this i dont think will happen somehow so maybe canwest(tv3) will buy the coverage and do a better job (i know wishful thinking)

you tell em smeged amazing what power does in the wrong hands

Actually smeged, the first off-topic post was by Azza500 (second post on this page), then yours was the next off-topic one (straight after). My offer to move it to the NZ forum was a page ago and was ignored by everyone after that until after I posted the off-topic marker.

I'll move it for you right now, but it just proves my point and yours

Oh, that was an offer? We all thought it was just some mumblings from the mods reminding us that penalties are pending....

Oh bollocks to this.
Penalise me 5 times for this. I just can't believe how stupid you guys are ****en acting at the moment.

As I said I can't be arsed anymore, you guys aren't listening to common sense, and it's just cost you.

Goodbye...

imposed by you no doubt anyway tell someone who cares oh and are you still going to say my post was off topic as moving pictures produce the coverage for V8SC in NZ find your partial behavior on this subject to be similar to that of V8SC IPO inconsistant how about a penalty for yourself for being of topic

Actually, no, by your fellow Kiwi moderator

There's obviously no point keeping this open ...
