The TdF is only 4 days old, and if it weren't for my DVR I would be going insane with those Saab commercials.:mad2: Not only are they repeated at every single commercial break, but the commercial itself is also repetitive. It gives me great pleasure to blast through those with my FF button!

yup...I can get through 3+ hours of coverage in less than a couple hours. Also nice to skip some of the boring parts at the start when you're just watching the peloton's butts.

... the price we pay to have any TV coverage at all... ADS!

To offset such ads and their repetitiveness, we've got the team of Liggett and Sherwin... True, sometimes their color commentary can be a bit repetitive... but I never get tired of hearing!

what I don't get is why the Marketing & Advertising Wizards don't create 3 commercials,
Show a new one each week, and still end up making us sick of their frequency...
DVR is the BEST...

"what I don't get is why the Marketing & Advertising Wizards don't create 3 commercials" Can't they show different Saab comercials? what, they made only one this year? and does VERSUS really believe anybody is interested in watching TAPOUT? that's how we bring it...........

You use ff button? I use a 30 sec. skip button on my tivo hd with a 1000 gig drive:) Nbc news has been talking about bikes all week. Today they had a 86 year old on there riding a bike. they said riding bikes helps you live longer. Monday nbc had bike riding to work. You should set your dvr to record it.

The saab commercial is better than the Festina watch commercials shown on eurosport. :cryin:
I'd disagree...the commercials on Eurosport are FAR less often than Versus....Eurosport has 20-30 minutes of content and then a short (less than 5 minute) commercial break; Vs. has 5 minutes of commercials, 1 minute of entry/exit crap, and then 3 minutes of content.


I<3 Eurosport :blush2:
