Re: TdF 2019 General Discussion

I'll drop this here to share a preview of just how inanely bad NBC is at covering cycling.

I can't remember seeing a more pointless exchange between two commentators before. I used actually like Steve Schlanger when he was first doing race coverage alongside Todd Gogulski, but this just bizarre. He just refuses to accept Bob Roll's perspective and experienced opinion, and so the discussion becomes completely circular and meaningless, while totally ignoring everything outside of Planet Ineos.

If this is any indication, the 2019 coverage of the Tour could be NBC's worst yet—and that's saying quite a lot.
