hell yea!!!!!!!! finally someone with some credit (other than Mladin) has said what they feel. This report is spot on to me, and i appreciate him being quiet as long as he has, giving the DMG the benefit of the doubt to prove themselves.

it hurts to see a guy like Schwantz say that we are the laughing stock of the racing community, because i know how much talent there is out there and now that is all being stifled by guys in suits who dont know anything about the sport we all love.

That was good and very diplomatic.

If that is what a D grade looks like though, I don't want to see an F.
I think he was being nice with a D but still pointed out that D isn't a passing grade.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Maybe he's giving them some credit for creating closer racing. I've not liked the format since the beginning (which I've stated many times on this forum), but even I'll admit it's more entertaining than it would have been with mladin just destroying everyone by 20 secs or more. Without spies, no one is in his league, even on the same bike. Still, being more than just the casual race fan, I did enjoy the trickness of a true factory superbike and appreciated the level of skill it took to ride one well past it's potential. I wish the other manufacturers and riders would have "stepped it up" rather than neutering the suzukis. Overall I'll agree with schwantz 100%, giving dmg a letter's grade worth of credit for closer racing.

I haven't liked this DMG charade since Day 1, so it's awesome to hear a legendary racer (thats still involved) talk and explain how bad this really is. Hopefully now, Rainey, K Roberts Sr., and so on will also put in their .02.

Not saying it's been a rosy season for a 1ST TIME YEAR producer but come on we all know Kevin is a Suk guy supporting Mladin for skipping out.....and I don't want to hear Kevin knows bests and has no temper I would expect ALL to say the same thing from every CAMP...I seen that Guy(Kevin) live in England when he used to race MotoGP and when he wrecked I would have sworn by his actions it was DMGs fault back then even though it didn't exist yet...he also reminds me of Mladin.

My point is we need the other Camps and NON front runners speaking up not the Guys with interests in other places like just their loyalty to 1 TEAM.
