This is exactly the sort of reasons that Casey Stoner got pissed off and walked away from moto gp, because the money and politics have got in the way of what the sport is fundamentally about.
I for one actually admire the way Casey stood up for what he believed in and spoke out against Dorna.

There is one advantage, we won't have to listen to the self congratulary ramblings of Toby Moody and Julian Ryder. For 2 people who have been commenting on motorcycling for so long, why are they so clueless. Julian when watching the moto3 race in Texas couldn't understand that somebody had been thrown off with the new brake protectors on the handle bar. It was the LHS that touched, the brake is on the right COME ON!!! + the Pedrosa can't ride in less grippy situations. Valencia 2012 or Jerez 2013 springs to mind. CLUELESS!!

On no - shame on the BBC!!!

First F1 and now Moto GP, why do we pay our licence? To watch snooker and tennis, just a pity some of us like a little more excitement. I think this will be a bad move and Moto GP will lose a lots of followers.

BT Vision is the biggest heap of crap you could imagine (along with BT BB & "customer service") - this venture is doomed to fail and take MotoGP with it. More BSB & WSBK it is then !

Can I go back 5 years and get Moto3, 2 and GP live and in real time on Eurosport please? I don't mind if it's free to air, on BBC, on BT Sport or whatever, just as long as it's live on Eurosport as well.

If coverage is to be moving from BBC to BT then BBC would be letting us viewers down, just as the recent ratings were at their best. It would be short sighted of Dorna in letting it go to an obscure channel such as BT. Where are the new MotoGP viewers going to come from if it's not on a freely available channel? Whatever the various opinions about BBC commentary, MotoGP has the biggest audience potential with the BBC. Can't be good for MotoGPs sponsors either. Dorna must be banking on some of the existing viewers getting MotoGP internet subscriptions at 100 euros a pop.

Online publications and magazines don't appear to be sticking up for the average viewer. Ironic because as interest dwindles it will be those publications losing audience too. Maybe they're counting on BT placing adverts with them.

Dorna, if you are reading this count me as an ex viewer. Unless I can get all the GP, WSB, BSB from my dish for what I pay now They can stuff the lot.
Bike racing is the best sport ever, and I have loved it for 40 years, but its not my whole life.
