ESPN = Joke, they show Viagra and Cialis, why not this, Jesus over sex any day. This is stupid, hopefully Blake will get a sponsor soon.

Because some people have a problem with religion. And I'm not joking. So many people would be insulted if networks showed religious commercials.

This isn't a religous commercial....did you even read the article? It is asking people to register to vote, Koch happens to be a devout Christian. So is Tim Tebow, but they seem to have no problem airing him over and over.

This is not true - as far as him losing the sponsor - as they have already came out and said they would fulfil their 20-race sponsorship.

I give the guy a lot of credit for his attitude and for standing firm on his beliefs, no matter the cost.

However, I don't believe for one second that they think that ESPN is the only network to reach NASCAR fans. I'd be willing to bet that Speed would take their money, and they'd get exposure to way more fans than ESPN.

Sounds like they want a little free exposure for the controversy.

Considering all the Nationwide races and qualifying is on espn...it pretty much is. They could advertise on speed, but I think ESPN is a tad more well known..

During ABC/ESPN's Cup races, I'd agree with you. I'd have to respectfully disagree for the first third of the season, though. During Fox's turn, Speed's overall NASCAR coverage absolutely dwarfs ESPN's. Heck, even during TNT's few races, I'd say Speed probably has twice the amount of coverage as ESPN. Even during the Chase, it seems that they have more total hours than ABC/ESPN.
