Crazy.

Scrolling through all those fresh, well-lit faces -

and then you come to Rossi looking like Keith Richards taking a break behind the amp stack.

Hey, Keith can still play the tunes pretty damn well ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, BTW, I bit down on the stick and paid the MotoGP fee for another year. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Damn Straight. Here's to Rossi making a run at it. He's on last year's better machine, so there's hope in that strength continuing.

Congrats on buying in.

Recently, there was a bitter letter to Roadracing World detailing about the absolute decline in TV coverage of the sport, ending with the point that by 2020 it has essentially reverted to the level 'seen' (my pun) in the '90s. The writer didn't want to have to pay "$200+ for a MotoGP Pass, and at this point, I have no idea how to get all the WSBK coverage."
The long reply detailed how beIN got axed in the face in 2018 when a cost dispute got its feed dropped from half of its outlets.
Which caused the race series and teams' income to collapse due to reduced exposure, and then the scramble to get some sort of broadcast deal with a shotgun-scatter of outlets.
But the bottomline was that all the series then made the efforts to fully create, package and sell access to an internet feed that they controlled, and that buying into those streams "may be the best solution for serious fans in the U.S.A....Editor"

Since I quit cable, I'm not paying Spectrum, to pay beIN, to Pay Dorna, to pay Lucio Cecchinello to field Nakagami and Marquez... who in turn all require that I watch an edited race with ads for shit I don't want to buy.
Now I pay Dorna, who pays Team LCR.

The ads are on the bikes and riders, and while I watch, I look up stuff that seems interesting.

After three years without cable, I've spent some time recently with my late Aunt's satellite system, and I am not impressed.

Break out of the system. It's falling apart anyway.

When BeIN was still on speaking terms with Direct TV (now ATT), I was happy enough with their coverage if not with their spotty interconnection with DTV's scheduler. I could see GP AND WSBK AND MotoAM on the same platform! Since their crash and burn, the past two years I have subscribed to GP and WSBK feeds and hoped for the best in finding MotoAM somewhere.  This year I subscribed to GP, will subscribe to WSBK, and will be scrounging once again for MotoAM. I do intend to go to Laguna, come hell or high water.

I've always been of the opinion that television coverage is critical to the survival of top-level motorsports. I think the rest of world may have that covered but here in the US it's a bit of a crisis. I am not sure whether Dorna can survive without a big US audience but I think they may. MotoAM though can't make it too much longer without stable TV presence.

I fear you are exactly correct on that.

Ok Gentlemen.  With about 1 day to go before post time, barring any last minute changes, team picks are looking like this:

Mad4theCrest:
Mir
Rossi
Bagnaia

Whatarush:
MMarquez
Miller
Rins

Allread:
Pol Espargaro
Rossi
Mir

Oldiron:
Mir
Morbidelli
Pol Espargaro

Motogrady:
Quartarano
Miller
Oliveria

Fat2 comes in with The M Team.
MM
Miller
Morbidelli

SpiesLives comes in with
MM
Rins
Morbidelli



Thoughts......with about 24 hours to claim a team, or make any changes, mg is sticking with his picks. On any day, any can win.  All are top 5 guys. Concerns about the long haul, ya, maybe.   But it is what it is.  
No fatfat team, hope he shows up.
Whatarush and FFat sticking with MM, knowing he's gonna miss the first 2 rounds, I dunno about that.  
2 guys picking Rossi kinda surprising, but thinking about it, maybe not. 3 guys thinking Mir to repeat,
even tho Zook lost their team manager to the 4 wheel crowd, makes one wonder.
Remember, teams, and rider picks are locked in 5am Sunday morning, the 28th, Eastern Standard Time.  They must be posted here, in this thread. Rules at the top of this thread.  

Good luck boys, may the best team owner win๐Ÿ‘

Since Whatarush already picked my team in the exact order I was going to the Doublefat team will be the M-team
Marquez
Miller
Morbidelli

Good luck guys.

After watching qualifying, no changes for me!

I confirm:

Mir
Rossi
Bagnaia

I am liking what I am seeing from the 42 year old Doctor!

Very happy too that FatFat joined in ... cutting it close ๐Ÿ˜ณ

The wife and I hooted for the olโ€™ man when he landed that position. The positive side of me thinks the Yammyโ€™s have fixed their traction issues.
The dark side of me thinks he just was towed in behind Bagnaia.
The Yamahas do seem to be having less traction issues. Even in the heat in practice they were doing better.

Iโ€™ve been having a hard time focusing in on whatโ€™s happening in Motogp but knew I needed to get my team lined out today. I got some news I didnโ€™t want and itโ€™s taking me a bit to climb out of my pitty place but this place and you guys are helping without even knowing it.

Thank you Grady for setting this up and thank you all for joining in and making it a great place.

Now,,, start your engines!!!

Looks good to me ๐Ÿ˜

Although maybe the faith (hope?) Allred and I put in The Doctor was misplaced. Or, since Morbo had an even worse day, maybe SRT just had a bad set up weekend?

Oh, and why did nobody pick Zarc? He was amazing.

^^^^^^
I almost picked Zarco.  I had him last year, and he disappointed me.  Especially when he didn't really put up a fight for himself when they blamed him for that tight pass at the end of that long straight.
That was a crap call.  Plus, I did not want to put the bulk of my riders on the same brand, which now looks like a miscalculation.  I mean, those Ducati's are running el strongo.

Ya, it was a tough decision between him and Oliverio for this year.

That's the attitude.  Go and look at the first round standings back in 2020.
That being said, whoever has MM on their team qualifies to replace him again this week.

One wonders......if I had him, and decided to let him go, who would I replace him with, for this series?๐Ÿค”
