Just heard macdaddys side on 447. That’s all I need to hear

People don't want to hear both sides. Rushing to judgement is much easier.

It’s also easy to make up a better story after the fact once you realize you screwed up and many fans don’t like you.

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Yeah, no one cares. We all saw the takeout. No excuse can cover it

False. False and all false. Except death threats. True. But that’s where we are now. Make assumptions. Threaten death. Yay social media. Yaaayyyy it’s so all about bringing us altogether.

Marchbanks Solution To Solve The Problem- To Crash Mac out while "battling" for 15th....

2:17:15 in the podcast. Didn't disparage PC. Did talk about being irritated by two incidents of cross-jumping before the hit, admitted he meant to hit him, said he didn't intend to hit him that hard.

Was obviously a little uncomfortable talking about it. "What do you want me to say?" and "Honestly, to be honest...."

I think, like the host said, he'll learn from it.

How do you know the claim of death threats is true? In the face of criticism people tend to make themselves the victim, another unfortunate product of social media society. I have a hard time believing anyone cares enough about this to threaten his life.

I think the takeout was very intentional, the public reaction was predictably overblown, and the apology from both the team and the rider was overdone. Just a simple "sorry Mac, you probably owe me one" would suffice. Friese will be back next week and the mob will move on from Marchbanks.

Sounds like damage control. Would be more fun if he would just go all in like Hannah did with the Howerton/Saddleback race. Why not this: "The kid was riding like a punk so I decided to clean him out. My only regret is I went down too.".

THAT would make me respect the guy more then the pathetic sniveling.....

Can you imagine that in the age of "woke" political correctness and cancel culture??? He'd be burned at the stake. You're right though, I'd respect him a little more for the honesty.

Braaapin' aint easy.

"I tried to break Howerton's leg" Hannah claimed at the time and still today.

You guys spend too much time online. If Marchbanks did that he’d be getting his tires pumped left and right from everybody on this site.

Stop confusing Twitter with real life

If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

That would have been awesome.

The irony of one guy wanting other people to do the work for them - but calls them lazy - cannot be understated.

I doubt he’d post on social media asking people to stop threatening his family and himself if he wasn’t getting death threats...

Marchbanks don’t strike me as a drama queen. He strikes me as a racer who acted like a racer on a track in a sport that sets precedent in allowing that action since its inception. Change my mind.

All false? Marchbanks' main complaint was getting cross jumped several times and frustrated about the red flag restart because he was in a worse position.

I'm not worked up about the on track incident. He's not the first to intentionally take someone out and he won't be the last.

The substance of the apology to me is disingenuous and unnecessary, in my opinion.

i think he explained it pretty well.

Go Marchbanks!!! I'm a new fan after all the crying on here about him.

Jesus Christ. Are the people offended by Marchbanks’ pass the same group of people who don’t like it when you assume gender?

Grow the fuck up. Racing is racing. I’m a new fan of Marchbanks after that pass!

Same. I personally was waiting for someone to take Mcadoo down. Risking your own health is one thing. Causing other riders to crash and get hurt is another

I’m torn a little. I think going after a guy who’s almost in life support is a bit of a bitch move, but on the other hand, dude probably shouldn’t be on the track in the first place. Oh well. It made for an exciting Atlanta, and a memorable championship battle. I probably won’t root for Marchbanks anymore, but I doubt he gives a fuck, nor should he.

I'm all for racing hard and "contact" passes. ....but that was f**ked...and he took himself out as well. Stupid move.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in Valencia during the 80's.

I would like a supercross rider to do what Valtteri Bottas did on F1 Drive to Survive.
He was getting trolled and bullied online and people were telling him he sucked and couldnt win and would never be champion. He towed Max Verstappen in qaulifying so he could start behind Lewis. He then wins the race and while he was crossing the finish line says " To all my critics, Fuck You."
