CREW CHIEF SHUFFLE RESPONSE

So Jimmy & Danny joined Timmie & Kimmie & Kenny in the "Let’s Hoop Alley & Johnnie Show". Remember - if they'll do it for ya', they'll do it to ya'! Just ask AA/Dale.

CREWING FOR DOLLARS

I think it was BULL SH-T of BERNCRAP to steal some JR`S crew people! Just goes to show that money talks. DON`T LIKE IT! Used to be a fan, but not anymore.

GIVE PAGE A CHANCE

Your article about being Force-fed too much coverage on the Force team, and lack of coverage for teams like J.R. Todd's was right on.

I also agree that I don't like Paul Page's coverage of the events. And I’m hearing the fan's dissatisfaction with Mr. Page. BUT, I've been reading message boards for year, and I remember when Marty Reid first started covering the races, and people bashed him, and I remember people bashing Bob Frey.

Now, when Mr. Reid first started covering the drag races, his lack of knowledge was very evident. I think he really improved over time, and I was enjoying his announcing along with Mike Dunn. I have always been a fan of Bob Frey's, as I don't think there's anyone on earth who can pull all those facts and figures out of the top of his head like Bob Frey can.

I think Mike Dunn does an excellent job, and I hope ESPN finds someone to announce with Mike who is Knowledgeable and enthusiastic. BUT, if Paul Page is replaced, will all the key-board crew chiefs out in message board land bash the new guy/gal, too?

PAGE REPLACEMENT NO. 1

What happened to Bret Kepner? He's the best announcer there is!

I have two words for ESPN2 & NHRA: Dave McClelland!  Who could argue with that?
