NASCAR fans - do you feel snubbed when affiliate stations preempt major races for football games?
My husband and I are neither big sports fans but we enjoy watching the occasional NASCAR event. We also live in a part of the country where there are a LOT of NASCAR fans.

I do have to wonder why these stations would purposely alienate local fans, who of course, make for a huge potential audience for the all-important commercial sponsors (I know they lost an audience at my home last night). What do you think?
I am a huge NASCAR fan and I get mad if they interrupt the race for a weather report haha

Well they kept interrupting the race every 10 minutes and I go so mad I called the news station 10 times over and over again! I told them that we know its raining and anyone that goes outside knows its raining and can you please stop interrupting my race!
Well shortly after all my calls they apologized on air for all the interruptions haha!
You can always call and complain!

According to various news articles, many conservatives claim that "American Sniper" was snubbed for "Best Picture" this year. What are your thoughts on this? Did the Oscars snub "American Sniper" out of a well deserved "Best Picture"...
