Ronnie Mac is hilarious, don't get me wrong. But the massive coverage and hype of him being at an event is a bit strange. We always say we dont want to be seen as a circus or a monster truck event but then we love when something like this happens.

It all just seems very WWE to me. I really liked it the first year but now that it was used as a selling point, it just seems like it may be doing more harm than good. Lol.

I'm probably just overthinking it.

RBSR is about fun.

Never gotten the whole Ronnie Mac thing myself..........

It’s awesome. He’s more entertaining then almost all the pro riders.

You'll probably cop shit from the ronmac livers,
but I run thought the same thing when he was mentioned pretty much straight up on the show.

Funny little side joke and halarious on social media. That's about it, that's as far as he should be involved.

Why does everything have to be good or bad for "the sport"? Who cares, it's funny and everyone has fun with it, please don't overthink and ruin the good things we have going.

You sound like an overprotective mother. Motorcross isn't just about dirt bikes, not sure if you've ever camped out at a pro national but a whole lot more it going on than just dirt bikes.

It's not like he's at every race throughout the year.

I consider him off-season entertainment.

One of many personalities in the sport

I like it a lot ,however there was a lot of men with full on boners for KR when he showed up in a suit so i might be the minority.

The main point being a fake personality.

I want to the record show I'm not passionate about this debate, just a thought that crossed my mind. Reminded me very much of WWE. You can make fun of me and get upset at the thought but it is very simpleton attraction.

I'm not against fun at allike I said, I think it's hilarious. But to be a main selling point is dangerous. Although, if it sells seats then who am I to argue.

Straight Rhythm will never be in the Olympics now.

What?

I think he's been stealing on Sipes's Moonshine

I think Ronnie Mac is great for THIS sport.

RBSR is to MX/sx what RBCI is to the NHL.

|

It's entertainment. plus, he can really ride the course. Not a fan of the open-faced helmet though.

|

If it was every race it would get old fast. Even year over year it might get old.
But right now loosen up and enjoy.
It's not like he is the new brand ambassador - Wait that's a great idea

It's something different. And even though the bit may not be for everyone....I think it's a good thing.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

That is my point EXACTLY.

So you're saying you'd rather have a field of made up personalities so long as it's fun to watch?

I need to get my checkbook out. There is some serious money to be made in World Wide Racing Entertainment!

10/21/2017 6:43 PM

Ehhh not into it. If there is any race ok for him to be in though it's this one. But yeah it's lame to me.

|

He's fine.

It's not really my sort of thing either tbh (though I don't think it has any significant impact one way or the other), however what definitely is cool is just how much he can get out of that 98 CR.

I've noticed the "vulgarity" level has been turned down a bit. I'm good with that.

|

10/21/2017 6:48 PM

Good or bad for the sport? YES!

|

Played out

Some of y'all need to loosen up and get some Ridin' in.

Made up personality? You can't fake blitzing that track on a 98 Honda. You may not like him but that s***'s real.

Jimmy makes me laugh my ass off when he's playin' Ronnie. Like I said, y'all need to go ridin' or sumthin'...

Uncle Ronnie is fuckin' rad and that's coming from a total nor-cal snowflake. Stoked that he races RBSR in character.
