MotoGP » Ezpeleta: BBC to BT like 500cc to MotoGP


“500cc was fantastic for decades, but there is a moment when you need to move to other possibilities” - Carmelo Ezpeleta.

Looking at that picture I can't help noticing how old Carmelo Ezpelata is.

This deal with BT must have been done to boost his retirement fund - I can't think of any other explanation for such an utterly ludicrous decision by Dorna.

And then the poor sods who live in europe and need BBC to actually see the damn thing at all..
So I loose motogp in English.. Progress..
On the good old analogue satellite I could get the eurosport feed and pick a language feed to go with it. then they went digital and removed that. Now they remove it from free to air and as a consequence I cannot watch me by any means EXCEPT to pay dorna.. But my crappy internet mostly won't stream it. Thanks a lot Ezpelata

I refuse to be held to ransom, I'll drop moto gp, 2, 3 from the races I watch and follow some WSB and BSB support races instead - probably supersport.
And that's coming from someone who intends to travel to the Mugello MotoGP round this year.

"...BT Sport can give to us what I think the British fans and everybody needs,” said Ezpeleta.
M. Ezpeleta has no idea what the British fans need - or want - because he has never asked them! He does know what they would say if he did: BBC & Eurosport!

He is behaving like a little dictator - again.
He can't even be honest and say that this is happening because Dorna want to screw some more money out of MotoGP before it goes tits up.

Pathetic!

Well BT can shove it where the sun dont shine.I left them over 10 years ago because of the shat service i was getting.And from what i can gather,it isnt much better now.They wont be seeing any of my hard earned money!

Espeleta knows sweet FA about British audiences, how about the people who don't have or can't afford anything other than freeview, what about them? They can walk, that's the upshot of all this and Dorna don't give a monkeys. You reap what you sow and alienating fans is NOT the way to grow the sport. Big mistake Espeleta, big mistake.
