No MotoGP Coverage on Speed

Unbelievable...Speed is not televising any of the MotoGP races for 2006. What a bummer!

Think you can or think you can't, either way you will suceed.

did they offer any reason? Is Dorna extorting higher fees or has Speed just become the wholly owned property of NASCAR?

Don't be mad at me for questioning you, but where did you hear this?

I've looked everywhere on their website and there is no mention of them not showing the races.

We should start up a petition of interest for MotoGP and send it over to the Spike channel...

This MotoGP schedule appears on the SpeedTV website. I've been checking some of the more active motorcycle forums, there is no mention of this cancellation.

I don't know where his info came from but Greyhound doesn't stir s**t. He checks in regularly and will update then, hopefully he got some bad info and SPEED will carry the races, it'd be a real bite in a$$ if they don't and nobody else picks up the ball.

MotoGP/WSB/AMA SPB on SPEED is my life, pls tell me its not true. Or that they have replaced it with the new sitcom EARL and his El Camino.

If that is the case, I will officially cancel speed from my digital cable. I don't care if I have to go back to basic. I don't care if I have to go back to rabbit ears.

Okay guys...here's the deal. First of all at my age the memory isn't what it used to be. Secondly, there was a petition going around to be sent to Speed complaining about no MotoGP coverage in 2006. I signed the petition and thought no more about it.

Well, the more I thought about it and based on a lot of your questions...I called a friend of mine who works for Chet Burke Productions...they do a lot of Speed's program production. He informed me I was full of ****!! They definately have the MotoGP races in the programing for 2006.

I apologize for the false alarm...Now, if I could just remember what the heck that petition I signed was for I would be in good shape.

Think you can or think you can't, either way you will suceed.

I think the petition was for less NASCAR coverage and more coverage of REAL racing (not the 1960's technology, round-we-go, let's marry our cousin type of "racin")

Actually, the petition you signed was NASCAR sanctioned and called for eliminating all MotoGP, AMA and WSBK coverage from Speed.

Way to go, Greyhound!
