    I think thats the point, unlike previous penalties which have never effectied the race at all. THis one is designed to weed out bad teams. If your a good time and just had a bad leg (which happens usually multiple times to teams) then you can pull yourself up. But if you are just hanging their in 6th place, then its time to prove that you can race or time to go.

    To me, the intention of the NEL is to save a team that merely got unlucky that leg, not a team that is as consistently bad as David and Mary. I'm a fan of this new NEL penalty completely.

    Madagascar I thought this was just a rumored location on the spoiler front. I'm glad they picked these two countries for Africa this time.

    And go Dustin/Kandice!

    And also to not watch 9PM shows on any other network... (and probably 10PM shows too, since if you are vested in CBS at 9:20-something, you more than likely will stick around for Cold Case rather than watch 60% of another show).

    I'd have to really think back, but from what I can remember, most teams saved on NEL did so by bad racing more so than bad luck (and then, of course, a team like Lena/Kristy or Bob/Joyce couldn't be saved ) I guess what I'm saying is that for a weak team like David/Mary they already have an uphill battle in the race. It just kind of sucks for a team that really doesn't have a chance to come in first unless by bad luck by everyone else or a FF, which they already have.
