It would be awesome if MotoGP was a big sport in america(as it has the ability to be despite the fact that motorcycle racing isn't that of a mainstream thing) , If anything one that that could rival the NFL, NBA, or MLB. When it come to that though, I put the blame squarely on Dorna for failing to market the sport to the wider mainstream, instead it seem to me that Dorna only care about the motorcycle-riding crowd.

re: "it seem(s) to me that Dorna only care about the motorcycle-riding crowd."

well... yeah.

on the coffee table in my living room, i have a copy of the indianapolis star newspaper dated sun aug 30 '09, and another dated sun aug 29 '10. the front pages of both rags those days were dedicated COMPLETELY to the riders of motogp (unprecedented).

however, guess what i saw when i looked out my front door 5 secs ago...? two of the local kids on my neighbor's lawn throwing a football back and forth. epiphany: WE ARE OUTGUNNED and as a group, we lack the unity and common sense of purpose to do anything about it.
