Marto, they are like $20 on ebay. They tend to be like cel phones in resale value.

I bought two for that just to bring it to the racetrack to watch stuff. Who's your provider?

So yeah, its not big news for non race fans. AMA has been some of the best racing anywhere the last few years.

But if you dont care, why post? Its like posting "I dont want it" on a for sale thread.

Hardly sounds like a rant! Want me to move it to the racing section?

Actually, coming from someone impartial in that regard at least as I'm neither American or British, I'd say BSB actually tops them by a good margin...

And no, Swedish Superbike isn't even an option... I can watch that for free, live, and I still turn it down... (It's not broadcast... With good reason...)

And, if you disregard domestic/international and go for pure racing, I'd say the Moto2 races are actually a peg above the rest, Superbike, AMA, WSBK, BSB, MotoGP and whatever else there are...

I don't know... I'm having fun rooting for Buell's team, May in particular. I want to see them kick ***. Well, Josh Hayes *** anyway. I had a blast at Homestead last season, some exciting racing there. It's definitely not WSB, but it's still good.

I had a dvr with my provider but got sick of paying exorbitant monthly dues for the box. I get basic through my homeowners association and we really watch netflix mostly. THEY should corner the market on racing, I'd pay them just to cover racing so I could watch it any time I please, that would be sweet.

That was really my point about DMG/AMA it ain't close to WSBK, Moto2 and even Moto3, haven't seen BSB but I take Tweety's word for it.

Note I am a former racer with 3 WERA National Championships albeit in the 70's, we used to have 3 wave starts in some classes and in the 80's and 90's we had 3 wave starts in Superbike.

The show these days is boring and predictable and only half of the OEM's are involved, which is why Speed dumped them, nobody wanted to buy ad's.
