MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'

I'd just like to say shamarone's views on this topic are frankly embarrassing to a fellow American. He seems the type that would sell his mother if he could find a buyer. We already pay a premium for tv access to sports/motorcycle racing coverage in this country, min. $120 where I'm at. In return we have to put up with the current provider fox diluting the coverage so much that half the race is missed due to advertisements. Not only do we miss the racing while away at commercial breaks, which is nothing new, but now with the added b/s cut away before and after the commercials so the fox guy can tell us his opinion while the camera shows stills of the riders faces and which position they are currently in or pictures of pit lane or trees, birds etc. while we could actually be watching THE RACING!! The fact that we are forced to miss the action because it's more important to have auto insurance adverts and fox sports adverts on the screen instead tells the story of who's interests th

MotoGP » Honda, Yamaha discuss Ducati advantages

@TF2 Only a complete dunce wouldn't be able to understand that the current system is broken in terms of fair or sporting competition. Sorry you're constantely banging your head against the wall trying to get this point across. Most "sheeple" just want to accept the status quo. Change is a hard thing to accept for them it seems. I'm personally quite tired of the 4 rider yam/hon "championship" and honestly feel that electronic "rider aids" are a huge part of the problem.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

I think many of the anti-Rossi brigade around here are afraid to accept that maybe, just maybe the current electronics laden factory machines (2001-present) have played a helping hand in the success of the pilots. We all know Rossi can win with or without them but we can't ever say that about Pedrosa, Stoner, Lorenzo, Marquez, etc. So rather than question the talent of these other riders (esp if you're a diehard fan of one) it's easier to say the electronics don't make a difference to the results and that the same riders would be winning races regardless...I'm not so sure about that.

MotoGP » Rossi: You have to forget past MotoGP victories

@db8 And you really think Stoner was the only rider who could have won a championship on the 07 Ducati? Only a Stoner fanboy would entertain such nonsense. That bike would've been a winner in the hands of Rossi for sure, and probably a couple of others as well. We all saw what Capi and even Bayliss had managed the year before.

DB8: The Ducati years taught him the humilty
I believe Rossi learned more humility from his first year back with Yamaha(a proven competitive bike) than anything else. Let's face it, nobody else was competitive on the Ducati so why would he be that bothered by the lackluster results?
Stoner was competitive on the Ducati.
Yeah...must be why he left that sinking ship. Fact is Stoner was finding it impossible to be competitive on the Ducati, just like everyone else.
