As long as they get shot of Cox, Parrish and Roberts, then it's a price worth paying.
Although I might forget the size of contact patch that a MotoGP bike puts its power down through. What was it again, Steve...?

it's unbelievable how Dorna seem to chaneg their mind, the reason BBC got the exclusive rights was because they wanted 'free to air', yet within weeks of that announcement ad the subsequent backlash from those who watch motogp Eurosport then were given the ability to show everything other than the main event live. Why, because the commentary team of Moody / Ryder / Spalding and at the time Mamola have a better insight into the motogp world in their todgers than the BBC commentary team of Parish and Cox.

If the suggestion is that the Eurosport team are employed by BT then it could work, I for one do not care who has rights as long as the right people are commentating, that said I see it as a massive mistake to once again go subscription only, this is forcing an already smallish following to become even smaller if you have to pay to watch.

Givent hat Dorna are also the rihts owners for WSBK now, when do we expect the announcement that WSBK is moving to CBBC!

While I'm not sticking up for BT in anyway as this is plainly a bad move for Motogp i don't know why ppl are going on about broadband signal as you will be able to view through sky or similar.

I guess we all have to wait and see what is said and if there is any hope for someone like Eurosport to carry on as they are. Its definately the end off BBC & motogp

Yet another Dorna f***up in the making. Greedy sods at work again. Leave it as it is. I don't usually go in for expletive deletives but this stupidity really makes my blood boil. Idiots.
