MJ_N_09 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
For anyone who watches Nascar in the USA....

It has been reported anonomously by someone on DalyPlanet that Primary booth announcer for TNT, Bill Weber, has been fired after a Hotel confrontation during the week.


I must say, if this is true, I am actually....thrilled, since he made the broadcast unbearable with his "I'm better than everyone else" attitude, and manipulated drama. Not to mention that he frequently argued with the other broadcasters off air. The whole incident proves what a brat he really is.


I really hope I am not alone in my opinion here.

I had to concede, His replacement was quite good.


I still prefer PRN/MRN however.

Sadly, Weber is reported to be back for the Daytona broadcast. He really must have begged for his job back.

UPDATE: it turns out that he is gone from the remainder of the TNT broadcasts this year. Ralph Shaeen is the replacement.

Good riddance.

It turns out that he flipped out on hotel staff.

....and larry mac's voice is not annoying?! i love the guy but he does NOT have a broadcast voice.
like MJ, i prefer PRN/MRN; best sports broadcast crew in the biz; period.

not to start a debate but mike joy and company never shut up during the broadcast until they are forced to during the "crank it up" portion.
you know that DW lips are flapping throughout the enitre broadcast.....they just turn his mic on and off at certian intervals.

boogiety boogiety

Actually I agree, FOX has become BY FAR the worst, thanks to a certain addition that isn't even human!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought the FOX cup thing they gave to Tony was pointless.

Too bad, I really don't like Ralph Sheheen, in any of his broadcasts.

What we need is FOX coverage year round. Sure, digger is annoying, but I don't watch pre-race anyway. DW, Larry Mac and Mike Joy are just about the best team ever, matched only by Hobbs, Matchett, and Varsha.

In an unrelated matter, wouldn't it be awesome to have a Race of Champions with DW and Hobbs as the commentators.

He came close a few times to arguing with them on air. I sensed major tension just watching the broadcasts. He was very 'nose in the air' and made more than one snide comment on air to Kyle Petty.

TNT and Fox both provide annoying coverage. They are just annoying in their own way.

Call me a whiner and hard to please and whatever...but I just dislike all 3 networks' coverage. TNT is the best, with or without Bill Weber. Ralph's a step up from Bill, and is a lot better at NASCAR than he was when he did F1 and does bikes, and I know he can't control it or anything, but his voice is just so irritating that no matter what he says, I don't want to listen to it. I do like Wally and Kyle, though, they make the broadcast watchable. They need Allen Bestwick back up there. FOX's coverage is a bit over the top for me, but I do like Mike Joy and Dr. Dick Berggren. ESPN has solid pit reporting, not much else.

^ Actually, I had yet to meet anyone who likes ESPN's Pit repoters. Dale Jarrett I think is the best part of the broadcast, so I keep wondering why they switch between him and Rusty Wallace all the time.

Yeah, I don't like Vince Welch a whole lot (awesome guy, not so awesome reporting in NASCAR or IRL), and Shannon Spake seems to struggle a lot. So I guess I, like Shannon, had no idea what I was saying .
