F1 is re-evaluating it's use of "Grid Girls". These Grid Girls seem similar to the Monster Girls/Lucas Oil Girls and 30-second card girls employed in SX and MX.

From the article "There's a lot of people respect the tradition of the grid girls and there's people who feel that it has become a bit dated, so we're addressing that."

In regards to MX and SX, I have personally felt this way for a long time. I am different than most men, there is no appeal to seeing models awkwardly stand around guys on the podium. Similarly, I don't understand the rationale behind a model holding the 30 second card while an official stands right next to her. It just seems juvenile and as though the promoters are appealing to the lowest common denominator.

Same thing with Miss Supercross - what is that about? She isn't bringing any information to the table that is new or intriguing, and generally it's painfully awkward to hear her stumble through whatever Twitter segment they have her doing.

I'm simply looking to start a discussion with this topic. Discuss, debate, flame, whatever.

Interesting. On one hand, it's a time-honored tradition that seems very natural to us.
On the other hand, so was slavery in the United States.


Sex sells; there's no getting around that. It might be nice to dress the women in clothing that was a little less obvious as to their intentions, however. (Their intentions clearly are: "Wow, look how hot this slut is! Buy our product and you can nail her!" I'm guessing none of the models would care for that implication.)
I'd be OK with pretty girls having a place in the marketing of SX/MX as long as they were presented with respect for the women's other skills and assets, and not just their asses.

Hey guys, I don't like looking at beautiful women. Since I don't like looking at beautiful women I don't think anyone else should either. I realize the majority of fans like to look at these beautiful women and these beautiful women like to be looked at but I still feel it should not be aloud.

Give me a f'ing break.

Welcome to life in American in 2017. The majority have to give into the few snowflakes.

Liberty Media and Monster/Feld probably don't share the same views.
Monster girls are here to stay, and that is fine by me.

The article is by the liberal left wing BBC, nothing to see here.

Supercross has a long history of women on the floor of races.

F1 is trying to kill itself.
They tried to kill it a few years ago with very quiet stupid sounding cars. The Attendance and Viewership tanked.
Luckily they addressed that!

Ferrari usually has 20-30 girls each race from the native country.
Santander as well. Many others.

Its part of the show.

The half naked models make it kind of embarrassing to take an outsider to a supercross. It just seems childish and redneck.. but I guess this is moto so...
(can I say redneck or will that hurt peoples' feelings?)

That is so gross. Yuk. Disgusting. I am so ashamed for looking at those beautiful women. I'm gonna go confess to my priest and wash my eyes out with lemon juice.

You said it yourself, they are trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator. I find the Monster girls embarrassing, but I don't drink PBR for breakfast, watch monster trucks, or over-use the term snowflake. I'm not the target demo.

If you don’t get that sex sells, you haven’t been paying attention to anything from hamburgers to breath mints!

Lowest common denominator, yup. It's amazing what guys will turn their heads at when it's dressed for that purpose.
I wonder what goes through a UFC card girls head (probably not much to begin with) when they stand behind females headlining a main event at weigh ins.

Like Joanna vs thug rose.

All women who dress a certain way, which they chose to do for MONEY, are dumb? Holier than thou you say?

You sir, win the Vitard of the day award. Also, here's more eye candy, but don't look!
