Lately they don't show the name of the bull being riden until the ride is underway. I don't like it because I know who the rider is but I have to look to see the bull's name and then I miss a second or two of the ride. I wish they would show the bull's name before the ride like they used to.

I've noticed that too. If they even show it at all. A lot of times they miss it and I'm not the most attentive listner... Or if there is a buck off-they don't always show the bull score. I like to know what the bull score was at least...
I thought I just wasn't paying attention--I've noticed the info isn't as clear and consistent as it used to be. I think the announcers spend a lot of time talking about the bull owning teams, which takes focus away from the analysis of the rides, in my humble opinion (or maybe because I still just don't get the whole bull owner team thing)...
not only aren't they showing the bull name half the time, they're also now using the contractors' brands rather than saying who the contractor is. i like to know who the bull is, and who owns him. how many of us know all the contractors' brands?!
they keep adding stuff, like this new bull owning teams thing, and all it seems to do is complicate things. they seem to think all this new stuff is going to attract more viewers. i can't see how. potential new viewers will probably walk away shaking their heads, trying to figure out just what the heck is going on. the PBR keeps making things more complicated and harder to follow all the time. heck, i'm having trouble following it half the time any more and i've been a fan since day one.
my suggestion? KISS - keep it simple, stupid. how hard is it? one bull, one cowboy, 8 seconds. it doesn't get any simpler than that.
