I think Julian and Toby are just as bad as commentators as they don't even report hardly anything on what happens in Moto 3 and 2 classes in qualifying and practise session. They just ramble about what went on in Moto GP in the past like anyone gives a damn on what happens in the past and they repeat themselves over and over again.

Well **** me ! dorna the dinosaur strikes again. Proving they lack the knowledge of modern Media on any level. They will try and charge as much as humanly possible in a short amount of time. Instead of putting it out for
Free to drum up interest and get social media buzzing about it. But no "empty your pockets" seems to be their policy wanna watch a clip? sorry gotta pay. Wanna know results sorry gotta pay!
On behalf of the common man **** YOU dorna will never switch or pay 10-15 a month for sport u ruined which is only just about recording.
Can I get a HELL YEAH for illegal streams as an alternative !

The commentators don't really matter when you can't get the bloody channel anyway. If you live in Hull or the East Riding of Yorkshire you are stuck with Karoo internet and as such do not have access to BT Broadband so either way I won't be able to watch, thanks an effing lot Dorna.

On another topic Toby and Julian are such **** kissers it gives me douche chills just listening to them fawn all over the riders it makes you sick until Mr Monototone Neil Spalding comes on and puts everyone to sleep while Julian Ryder spits everywhere. Yo can say what you want about Steve Parrish but at least he has been out there and raced at the highest level himself a thing Toby and Julian only have wet dreams about.

Obviously Ezpeleta has gone after the dollars/pounds/euros and does not give any thought to the viewers. Where I live I am unable to use the services of BT so I am st---ed. If Ezpeleta dares to show his face at Silverstone I will give him my views in no uncertain terms. Don't worry Mr E., I do not condone violence. TO ALL THE FANS aAT SILVERSTONE- make your views known to him. Loud and clear

Everybody else accross Europe pays for it and the figures are up every year, if you like something enough contribute, if you don't shut up. The likelihhod of BT sport being on Sky and Virgin are very strong, they are negotiating now.
Every sport that has become pay per view has become stronger, it makes good sense to move it to a channel where they have a lot of sports coverage and the BBC is losing out on most, maybe they should stop paying personalities 8 figure salaries and Eastenders actors 6 figure salaries.
If you don't want to pay BT, pay Dorna direct their on line coverage is very good, cost me €100 for a year.
Eurosport has become tired and does nothing to promote it, the WSB coverage on there is rank ( only just bareable with Whitham taking the P*** out of Burnicle) and we are stuck with that for the next 5 years due to the Flaminis signing exclusive rights over for nest to nothing.
