You could accuse the AMA of being archaic....as well as their rules package....the one the MIC wants to hold on to and promote.
I think there needs to be some change to create some more outside interest. The Suzuki domination, while completely fair (recent crankshaft issues notwithstanding) is very HO-HUM at this point. Superbike isn't really fun to watch anymore. The 600 FX/SS classes serve nothing but to give more than one manufacturer a 600 championship...oh yeah, and probably confuse prospective fans along the way. Superstock is supposed to be about feeding the higher classes, and there is plenty of young talent in that class, but you also have guys like Yates and Bostrom out there on big budget bikes.
I don't claim to be the answer man, but everything is not hunky-dory with the present system. DMG wants to bring wholesale changes---too much too drastic too quick. No-names ripping around on stock bikes isn't gonna generate interest. The answer probably lies somewhere in the middle.
And RC90 you'll get your WSBK boys, at least for another year or two. They got a contract. But it might be at an otherwise boring venue. And don't rag on Miggy too hard. The old man can still go get it. There have been numerous times where he has been faster than Hodgson....you know.....the WSBK World Champion?
