Armchair quarterbacks from the guys on the field.

No one crewing is sitting back wondering if it'll make for good enough tv, or if it'll alienate middle America. There is an official party line, and no one wants to stry far from it- but at the end of the day- the competitor is there to compete.
There are many parties involved with the AC. Clearly you do not understand this. You read somthing and comprehend it the way you see fit.
