Why Do I Bother Watching Speed for Anything Other Than F-1?

Work toward placing a reasonable, articulate, balanced commentator on other popular media outlets such as Speed TV.  Robin Miller continues to be an embarrassment to the entire sport. He has no idea how to ask an intelligent question, much less process the answer and communicate it to viewers or readers. How he is allowed to spout garbage such as ‘there hasn’t been a month of May since 1996’ or ‘Paul Tracy won in 2002’ or spout ‘cart guy winning too much’ whacko conspiracy theories or calling Indy Cars ‘crapwagons’ with impunity is beyond my ability to reason. Even Paul Tracy seemed reasonable by comparison.

Given the tenet of free speech I am OK with seeing him consistently make a fool of himself on national television, but should there not be someone who can represent the sport more professionally on the air? There are plenty of people who could do it.

I’m guessing Speed, which has become nothing more than an extension of the NASCAR public relations machine, encourages Miller’s persona so as to continue positioning Indy Car as second class.

In any event why should any of us be surprised?  May is like a full moon to lunatics. Stupid, bad behavior seems to crest during May as these idiots who do not really understand the first thing about what Indy actually means try to tear it down. As usual, their ignorance and/or willful hostility will not prevent me from enjoying the entire month as I have for many decades.

  1. “I’m guessing Speed, which has become nothing more than an extension of the NASCAR public relations machine, encourages Miller’s persona so as to continue positioning Indy Car as second class.”

    That’s all it is. The very second he starts talking that way about NASCAR, he’d done.

  2. Hey Mike Miller, you sound a little paranoid. You honestly think Nascar is behind Miller bashing the IRL? Watch out for those black helicopters.
