Haven't seen an AMA/DMG race yet

I used to follow this series pretty closely. I would attend a couple of races each year and really look forward to race weekends on the boob-tube. But so far this year I haven't seen a single race! I know it's a combination of the new DMG rules not interesting me anymore, but more so the effed-up television schedule that is happening with DMG/SpeedTV. I follow the race results on Superbikeplanet.com and know that Mladin is still kicking everyone elses ass, but I have no interest in trying to actually see a race. WSBK and MotoGP races are televised on the weekends like they should be and offer much better racing IMO and I watch those religiously or DVR them.

Sorry, just wanted to rant a little bit and see if I was the only one here who hasn't seen a race yet.

BTW, this weekend WSBK is at Kyalami and MotoGP is racing at Le Mans! But I couldn't tell you where the AMA race is or if they're even racing this weekend. :headshake

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Ridding the Internet of bad grammar, 1 post at a time.

I will admit I watch the AMA show whenever it is on, or rather TiVo it and watch when I can get to it. It is funny to listen to the commentators talk up the races, like they are the greatest thing on the planet, especially when a race only has 7 riders in it.

Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you.

It's hard to care about a race on TV that happened 2 weeks earlier.

aw you're a wet blanket. it's so fun to watch them race even if you know who won! what's better than a battle at 150?

Its a damn shame how they all have ruined the series. They are lucky to stil have the caliber racers that they have. Mladin, Hayden Young. But that too will pass im sure. Did you happen to catch the episode where they were posting up obligitory pictures of a TZ250 with a chick in a bikini, I mean cmon what do they take us for, a bunch of morons.

DMG is trying its damndest to ruin road racing in America. Every other country will continue to produce world caliber riders while we fall behind and loose more and more talent and interest. fuck the AMA, too bad for the riders because they deserve more than this.
