So no Race Day Live? Will NBC gold supercross pass be giving a 20% rebate?

Photo



Rumors around say Feld will be going with skeleton flaggers. Normally they have around 31, now only 15?

Photo


They will be testing for covid-19 and temperature? Webb, Roczen, Tomac with 4 or 5 others test positive or have a temperature. Then what?

Photo


Purse down 20%. Will entry be 20% less. I just hope Feld does not keep this purse for the 2021.

Seem like logical questions that I am sure you can figure out

Take a breath my friend. Enjoy the fact that we are even getting this with all the craziness going on.

The last few years they decided to pay flaggers with a gift card for $150 IIRC? If they would make it public instead of the need to know somebody deal that it is now, they would be flooded with volunteers happy to work for free flagging.

It's more about total crew allowed on the floor during this situation, rather than cost.

I think that one valid question you proposed is what happens if a major contender tests positive. Of course, as with any SX/MX the show goes on without the consideration of top riders health (see:every season ever) but this does seem like a unique situation somehow. Let’s just hope everyone is healthy and Be thankful that these folks are going for it.

People that want refunds of 20 percent for nbc sports app kill me. If that amount of money moves the needle for you, cancel your internet. You can’t afford it.

Never try to argue with idiots; they will only bring you down to their level.....and being more experienced, they will beat you at their own game!

Yeah because no one is unemployed right now. Pretty cavalier and assholey but do go on.

Or you could help them out with your buckets o' cash? Just sayin'

Maybe you could Tweet Matthes and ask him if you are getting a refund, he seems pretty plugged in.

Baseball is a game of stats, and now a shortened season will be scrutinized. I'm just glad racing is gonna happen. This is a positive step, as well as a risk. Let's all enjoy racing again; even if the boobie bars are closed!

Based on the list of event attendees limits I was sent today, it looks like a limited amount of media members will be invited. Somewhere around 10 if I read it correctly? I might be a little off though.

This is the big question hanging over all the sports. What happens when a major player has to sit for 2 or 3 weeks? In the NFL losing 3 games because Patrick Mahomes has to sit out is devastating. What if LA has to bench Labron for most of a payoff series? And of course in our sport missing races means you've already lost the title. Weird times.

If someone gets sick, they sit out. Simple as that. They dont stop the schedule because one person is sick or injured. The show must go on.

Damn, you're right! I'm boycotting this thing based on safety! Who's with me?

I think many people forget that sports are just entertainment. We dont NEED this shit. We all love it and want it... but we dont NEED it.

Just sit there... shut your yap and enjoy that we are racing.

These events will have same same amount of flaggers as any other.
Feld 15+ AMA flaggers 7 = 22
No leader light operators or mechanic block pullers.

They could use lights and not have any flaggers

Some lights are used.
Red lights on triples.
Yellow lights are used at times in middle lanes but are not 100% reliable and if they get knocked over are useless until repositioned.

That’s valid for SX and MX, but take the NFL for example and it gets a lot more complicated. Let’s say a player tests positive, we’ll they’ve now been around pretty much their entire team, as well as whatever team they played the week prior, so now what do you do? My guess is if the NFL of NBA start back up again there’s probably going to be “testing”, but since the players are relatively young and healthy positive tests might get the blind eye and they just let it go.

Personally.....I know and understand that everyone that's running the show , are probably put on some major restrictions. I think they are probably doing the best they can , to help get this season finished. Will it be way different than normal and a little weird....yeah. But I personally don't care. We're going to get some racing back! Which is 1 million times better than not getting anything until the outdoors or next year. And 20% refund? Nah man , that amount of money is not going to hurt my account. Again , I think they are doing the best they can , and I'm good with that.

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.
