New style live reports sucks

It seems Dan Benson is more interested in shout outs, shilling CN ipad apps, and flaunting that he has Vaughters on his twitter than telling us about the race.

I want to know what is going on in the race - not what someone on twitter thinks.

He's making Harmon seem competent.

Couldn't agree more. It's so bad that I have started watching it on Eurosport, with the sound off.

Ive got Vaughters on my twitter to so :P Benson :D

New style looks fine to me. Not tried it on a mobile which is really what the live report should be tailored to. If youve got internet chances are you can watch the race. But for mobiles some form of live update is very useful (i just keep track on twitter(

Yet another Epic Fail by the website that focus on losing readers by ruining a good thing, not everything needs to be changed. :rolleyes:

I mean if the website designers are so bored how about adding the historical links to the races so when you are on a race page you can go see previous years results like we used to?

The twitter feature should have you log into your twitter account and only see the twits you follow, not those CN likes, that way we could log off and not see the twits CN thinks are pertinent.

And put the order back the way it was! Oldest First, newest LAST! So we can read it un-spoiled! SERENITY NOW!

I liked having the option of most recent entries "on top" and the auto refresh is very welcome.

I'm not interested in the twitter contributions, new format or old, regardless of who they're from. All I look for (and want) in the CN race commentary is factual info about the race.
