Nope, because Uverse dropped BEin and the only way I know of to watch motoGP is to pay $50 for a subscription i don't think I should have to pay for.
So I'm out until some other channel picks it up.

Reminds me of last week when my wife asked me if I liked the XM satellite service that's free for 3 months with the new car. I said I sure do.
She asked if I was gonna pay for it when the 3 months was up, I said no friggin way. Not gonna pay for radio. I'm stubborn that way.

Sam, we know that the American audience is missing out on not seeing the Moto and we know many more would if it were more accessible like in sports bars, etc. But let's face it, not enough current viewership to sustain the costs. 20 years ago you could easily catch WOO races, the Turkey night grand prix and the silver crown from Phoenix on 1/10th the stations we have now.

I use playstation vue and they dropped Bein sports last year. I watch MotoGP on youtube, better than nothing.

Now that his MotoGP career is over, he needs to try what Santino Ferucci did, and see if he can buy a ride in another series (Superbike?) in a far away country.

That might work out for him. I wonder how the M2 bike compares to SBK?

Fenati is a hotheaded little *******, I hope he never gets another ride. This isn't his first incident, it's just the latest in a long line of similar hotheaded, bonehead moves.

Every potential team and sponsor in every race series will without doubt have seen that by now. Can't imagine any willing to take the risk/chance.

Wow, this may be the first time I've seen MCGP coverage of any sort in the MSM.

I know, it's weird. I've had people who know I'm "interested" in MC racing (I'm actually a raging addict), send me all kinds of news links to the Fenati incident. I'm like, yeah, I was tuned in and watching that race live....

Yeah - indeed. My boss texted me a link to an article on Sunday afternoon.

I'm hearing now that Fenati has quit racing all together. Of course, not having a ride or sponsor helps, but perhaps he's realized that it just isn't for him.

He's too much of a hot potato right now. Perhaps he will show up again somewhere at a later date? Who knows...
