He’s slipping away. Guy can’t figure out what lap they’re on, and can’t seem to fuck off with the worthless stories about walking alligators or whatever other dumb shit he saw on social media by a rider.

I’ve always been a bit irritated that Ralph is the voice of Supercross, but at least he didn’t have his head too far up his ass.

Is he off his meds? Early signs of Alzheimer’s? Drinking problem? BJ under the broadcast table?

Just wondering.

He has to rev his mouth harder, to compensate for less O2 to the brain.

Ralph having alzheimers was suggested earlier. I suspect this thread will end up in the dumbgeon too.

Support those who protect us....our military, law enforcement and 1st responders.

He needs to keep a bottle of Titos under the desk...you know...just to take the edge off. It is afterall a high pressure job...

My favorite was him thinking Zach was taking the win as he crossed the finish line with two to go 😂

A 350 is always the solution.

Look this is not a great thread And is clearly destined for the dungeon, but I’ll bite.
I do think there is a problem.
I completely understand mistakes are made, but Ralph makes them constantly. To the point that it’s embarrassing. I can tell RC is embarrassed by some of the things he says.

Now RC. He is ok. Not great, but ok.
BUT. He is the GOAT. He is there because of that and he is respected in the industry. Now he is improving, he is working on it and I can see the results. But I’ll always give him grace because the reasons he is there are different to Ralph.
Ralph is a nobody. The ONLY reason he has a job is because he is great at calling the sport. Except he isn’t and there are clearly better options..

It’s now time to wonder wtf is going on. Get this dumbass out of the damned box please.
It’s not amateur hour.

Paul Malin who commentates on MXGP would be amazing for the Supercross broadcasts. That guy can entertain and does it all on his own for the most part.

Ralph has been on Supercross broadcasts for years and to be honest the past couple years have been awful. I’m not sure how much is him and how much was/is fox and nbc forcing him to say stuff. I’ve ranted enough about Ralph and he may be a great guy out of the booth but on air he absolutely is not helping the broadcasts. It’s time for a change. The first three rounds this year proved to me at least it’s time.

My favorite Ralph-ism was this weekends race when he and tried to point out that number 27 Malcolm Smith was moving up in the field. For a second there I thought there was a 79 year-old out there racing.

What about Ricky kept saying “he made a forced error” or don’t make a forced error...

You don’t want to make an “UNFORCED” error Ricky! Far out..

He’s in a must situation don’t make a forced error..

My neck hurts from shaking my head smh

It's like watching an Infomercial half the time lol.

I can normally tune him out but this race was bad. Justin Bogel normally rides the number 50 bike of Benny Bloss. wtf Ralph, dude was a mess all day.

I wonder if he’s having a go at comedy. Cos I fucken howled at his “walking the alligator” story and RC, once again, gave Ralph absolutely nothing but 10 seconds of long silence after that piece of mouth-garbage that Ralph served up.
Props to RC for giving Ralph’s weird fucken stories what they deserve throughout the last 7 rounds, dead silence.

Amen, well said.

He seemed extra sweaty and pasty since he got to SLC lol
I'm just glad he tells me what color gear everyone has on.

All 4 of them need to go. Aussie chick bugs. Ralph is worse than he’s ever been.

That entire story with the alligator was so cringe worthy i turned away from the screen and stared at the wall in embarassment for a minute.

I usually try not to bitch too much about Ralph, but man...sometimes it's just hard to defend the guy.

I’m a huge fan of Malins enthusiasm on the mxgp broadcasts. “Coccyx!!”

It’s a shame NBC won’t let Weigandt take over. He would be phenomenal.

I heard that also lol. But in his defense, it was "On any Sunday." instead of Saturday night.

This post says more about you as a person than it does Ralph. Your reactions to him are not due to him, but due to you.
