Does anybody know....

Does anybody know why Dave Sadowsky got fired last year near the end of the racing season. He must have done something to tick off someone in charge. But no one seems to know the real reason. (Obviously, Freddie Spencer is a great replacement, but I thought Sadowsky did nice job, too).

BTW, kudos to Dan Ortega. He's beating a lot of AMA riders without the benefit of any real support....

Dave apparently went out of his way to mention a company who pulled all ads on SpeedTV so I heard.

That would get you the hook, I guess. But, he must have really gone out of his way to do it. No reprimand or warning, just

Thanks, Rob.

Yeah I liked Sadowsky too, Spencer is good and knows a lot, but if anyone should go it should be Greg White just for not knowing crap and thinking he does.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Yeah, Ski was cool. My impression was that he told it like it was, sort of the Johnny Miller of motorcycle racing. I've read alot of negative opinions on him though but nobody seems to like Greg White!

I wish Dennis Noyes was back on Moto GP though...
