Of course, but the fact is people pay attention to figures like that. The higher it is, the more people panic and worry, which does no-one any favours. Maybe it does seem like splitting hairs, but I do think it’s important to report these figures accurately ... more »

Mortality rate is not accurate information. You can only work it out based on the amount of confirmed cases, but since the testing situation is far from ideal, it’s safe to assume that many many cases are not being reported and that it is largely the ... more »

38% of cases in the US are 20-54. Not deaths

Mortality rate is not accurate information. Since it’s calculated from the number of recorded cases to the number of deaths, it’s only accurate if you believe that all cases of the virus are being recorded and reported, that is not even close to being ... more »

A smart schedule. Well done guys

Added reply in a thread 5 rounds Vegas over 2 weeks no fans. 3/16/2020 9:37 AM

Is the minimum requirement for number of rounds needed for it be classed as a championship really 14-15? That seems like a lot. F1 have 22 races and their minimum is 8.

Of course he didn’t lose on purpose. I’m not even specifically talking about Roczen. In general a rider fighting for the championship will take a lot more risks and put a lot more on the line when he’s knows it’s his last chance, compared to when he ... more »

Conspiracy? I don’t necessarily care about the result at Daytona, nor am I suggesting that it would’ve been any different of it had been the final round, but to say that there is no strategy or forward thinking involved at all is just plain dumb. To ... more »

How can you not understand the difference in mentality from a mid-season race to the last race of the season? Putting all results aside, do you honestly think there is no difference?

Not what I said. At all

I’m not saying he wouldn’t have done. Just responding to someone saying that no one would’ve or could’ve raced any differently had they have known it was the last round. Which is just wrong

Added reply in a thread Think how Eli will feel if he gets crowned now 3/14/2020 8:33 AM

For sure, what’s happened has happened and if it was the last round then it sucks but it is fair. My only point is that if you told the guys before the gate dropped at Daytona that is was the last round of the series, their approach to the race would ... more »

Even if he said that he gave it everything, the mindset is still very different. In the back of his mind he knew that finishing 2nd and being 3 points down with 7 rounds left is far from a disaster. It’s a very different situation than knowing that it’s ... more »

You seriously don’t think Roczen, or anyone for that matter, would’ve raced Daytona any differently had he known it was the last round of the series?

Probably be quite happy that they called the whole thing off before he had chance to bottle it

Added reply in a thread NBC Gold Refund? 3/13/2020 2:11 AM

They haven’t cancelled it by choice. They’ve raced over the half the series and we were able to watch it all live. I won’t be crying to them asking for a refund. Same applies to a MXGP-TV

Well what would you class as last minute though? Is 3-4 weeks beforehand last minute? I wouldn’t think so. I’m not suggesting that you cancel it the week before, even if you cancel it a month prior it still gives you another 2-3 weeks to assess the situation. ... more »

They just postponed a fly away in Argentina with 10 days notice but we can’t give it a couple of weeks to see how this develops further? Maybe there’s no chance that these events can run. But does that decision need to be made 6 weeks in advance? Give ... more »
