NBC just announced that they will be adding a 5 second delay on their NASCAR broadcast (I think that was the first time I mentioned NASCAR on this blog, and I hope it's the last, except for me mentioning it again in this sentence). There have been delays added to many sporting events recently since certain things have been seen or heard, that shouldn't have been.
I always thought that live TV was on a time delay. And what's the big deal? What does it matter if you see something 5 seconds after it happens? Is it really that big of a deal?
