Just ask yourself… weren’t you dying for Jeremy and RC to smack talk even
a TINY bit?! Some guys spent their entire careers worrying about what other
people thought about them. While others worried more about how they looked
and having a good time. And some were soooooo quiet, you
don't hardly remember they were there.And I’m NOT
trying to take anything away from their accomplishments...but what ever
happened to all the great “characters” in this sport?!
Would you prefer robots out there on bikes?! Because that’s what it feels
like some times. COME ONE…
the fans love it AND hate it when the top guys smack talk and show a little
personality! Why do think Muhammad Ali IS who he is to this day?! It adds
excitement and drama to the sport. There’s nothing worse
than 1st through 3rd hugging on each other – yuck. I want to see 2nd and 3rd
And how about the podium??!

another nowadays without the AMA twisting shorts – at their discretion…of
Not that I’m suggesting
they play favorites…cough.
Yet, they use nothing but
shots of bangin’ and
crashin’ to promote the
sport on TV.
er me this…if you walked into a convention center and knew
you had to pick one room to sit and listen to one former champion speak for
hour…who would it be? Here are your choices ~ Bob Hannah, Broc Glover, Rick
Johnson, Jeff Ward, Jeff Stanton, Jeremy McGrath or Ricky Carmichael. Bob’s
room wouldn’t even need a sign! All you’d have to listen for is the laughter
and look for the
standing room only. Hey pose the same question to a group of
journalists or industry peers take your pick,
and see what the answer would be.
