Here are the tv ratings results since TG's buyout of Champ Car for $10 million-
2007 ******* 2008
.7 Homestead .8
.6 St Pete .4
.4 Motegi .33
.3 Kansas .74
4.3 Indy 4.5
1.0 Milwaukee .8
.7 Texas 1.0
1.0 Watkins Glen 1.1
1.1 Iowa 1.1
.6 Richmond .9
1.7 Mid Ohio 1.3
Edmonton ( so bad, not listed)
.4 Nashville .5
.6 Kentucky .43
.6 Sonoma .41
1.0 Belle Isle .9
.9 Chicago .8
As a result, ABC has dropped coverage of 7 events to 5 events for 2009. They also allowed the Irl find another network for their remainder events and they wound up on an obscure cable channel next year.
Indycar has just released a report stating that ratings are up 21.4% over 2007.
Who's lying now?
But you are not a gomer math whiz. Of course you can't make that a 21.4% increase.
Maybe that was a 21.4% increase in weight of the average gomer viewer after gorging then sleeping through another earl season. Maybe it was a 21.4% increase in viewers killed brain cells while watching that crap. Maybe it's a 21.4% increase of fecal matter that the earl statisticians are are full of when they release this crap. Maybe we are 21.4% more skeptical of anything the earl releases.
Math? You give them too much by thinking they can even identify numbers and letters. I don't think they know much besides grunts.
the gomer logic and gomer math is weird, let me explain how they calculate the increase:
1. there's nothing wrong with adding percentages
2. gomers can't handle negative numbers. so when they see a "-" they think it's just a variation of the "+"
3. go back the last 10 years and you see a permanently decrease of the tv-ratings. an average hurl-event drops at least 20%/year. but when it drops only 10%, for the gomers it's an increase of 10%
4. now add all the percentages of the "less than 20% decrease" in 2008 compared to 2007 and you'll arrive at 21.4%, very simple, huh?
There will always be one thing the Irl will never be able to overcome.
It's the TG factor, its real and its matters.
TG killed OW when he created the Irl, that will be his legacy.
