I have to wonder, are the "5-second delays" any good at all?

I've heard so much about the whole thing about the networks in order to regulate and prevent possible expletives and beep them out during live broadcasts. So far, I don't think any of that has been happening, which is strange since it sounds like a good idea, or is it?

Don't know if any of you watch NASCAR but last year during the 2nd race at New Hampshire Robby Gordon was wrecked by Michael Waltrip during a caution flag; Gordon was ballistic during the interview afterwards and called Waltrip a "piece of shit" on LIVE television. Gordon was fined of course by NASCAR, but TNT/NBC were severely criticized and many questioned why hadn't they implemented the "5-second delay" in order to prevent situations like this from happening.

Now the networks are rallying against the FCC for their new rulings (and hopefully against that new Communications Decency Act in congress), which is fine by me, but still, they got to find a solution for these spontaneous things somehow.

Who knows how they're going to do it.

I'm in favor of the "telling the FCC to pound salt" solution, myself. Followed by making a big stink of it during the next election.
