The same old story, why doesnt the BBC & Dorna just give it a break.
The BBC coverage of the MOTOGP weekend is diabolical, the commentary team are terrible. Should any other sporting event coincide with the MotoGp, then the bikes get shunted down the order.
Allow BBC to show it, and also allow the subsciption channels to show it also. Isnt that providing a wider audience. It also lets me choose which commentary i prefer.
Since the Dorna / BBC mess first started, i have not, and will not watch the coverage live on BBC. I much prefer waiting an hour and watching the race with a better commentary team.
Go on the BBC Sport Website, and see how far the MotoGP link is burried...
And where is the BBC coverage of Moto2 & Moto3...
The Red Button... what a joke.
Isnt this the future stars that we should be seeing coming thru.

When Motogp was dropped from Eurosport on mainland Europe it was a disaster. With Eurosport in mainland Europe, I was able to watch the MotoGP in any country and switch the language to English. This is no longer possible and is clearly a backward step for broadcasting and detrimental to the viewer. The local stations then broadcasting were in local language only and for the most part the commentating teams are very inferior. Now, instead of fixing the mistake Dorna made in 2007/2008 they are proposing to make it even worse. What is wrong with them? I have tried complaining to them directly about the quality of the commentators in some countries like Poland where I am sure they do there best to turn viewers away. However, Dorna don't even bother to respond. Give it back to Europe-wide Eurosport, offer it to free-to-air broadcasters too and leave it as it is with the BBC if you want to reach a wider audience. It's bloody obvious!!!

wow . .they reall y want to f*ck up a already dysfunctional series, the fastest bicks and the best riders yes but, its a 2 or maybe 3 class series now, the lame ctr bikes brought in just as a cheap way to fill the grid. the remaining 12 legit bikes half are non factory and have a slim chance of making a podium so you really have 6 factory bikes but 1 (Duc ) is a lame duck. really moto gp is a 4 bike race series and now they are going to make you pay to see it . . .haha

I used to watch motoGP when I was bored of F1 but since then F1 has swung back and is way more entertaining. You guys can broadcast on whatever you want I've already tuned out.

I can't see this happening as it would cause far too much of a loss to the viewing figures!! Surely, MotoGP needs as many viewers as it can for sponsorship reasons and such like!! No, it can't happen - please!!!
