Its a shame that this monopoly of a structure was built way back when and pretty much sewed up the loophole with “you’ll be black balled if you chose to challenge” (paraphrasing of course)

Assuming $20 a shirt that's 600 shirts. I don't think the $12000 is profit, but total sales.
Very plausible

You actually sign away to your likeness when you fill out your pro license application each year.

MX/SX is kind of behind the times in the swag sales dept at the races. NHRA/NASCAR heck even the local stock car toilet bowl racers have a better merch setup than SX/MX. I wanted a Ryan Dungey hat at RedBud this year. All they had was some cheesey assed flat bill hipster looking crap. Every trailer was selling the same tired old crap. You go to a NASCAR race and there are trailers full of crap to waste your money on. MotoSport either needs to do a royalty deal with the teams/riders or get some new stuff to sell. It would be nice if the OEM's brought in new bikes to crawl over or at least let local dealers bring bikes in to sell/show.

I go to the races for an experience, swag can be part of that experience. Looking at new stuff is also part of the experience. At RedBud you can eat some crappy food, look at the same Tee shirt in 10 different trailers or get stupid drunk and scream endlessly all day long. Oh yeah there are a few races that day too.

We deserve better for our money, but how can we get them to change? That's the question, bitching on the interwebs probably isn't going to do it.

Dmxs do seem like great people. How in the hell would PFitzG38 know why Dmxs lied?....Can YOU tell us why Dmxs said Ronnie Mac sold $12000 in T-shirts at the RBSR? (I didn't actually hear it, I just read about it here. My guess is they were joking) Why does anybody lie? Why would someone insult someone else for not believing in what APPEARS to be a lie? Do YOU think Ronnie sold $12000 worth of T-shirts (during the ENTIRE time since his inception, let alone in one afternoon)?....Just asking, not insulting or cum chuggling.ermm

I'm sure you sign that right away at your first race. Don't you agree?

PFitz - When you were at RBSR did you notice the line for autographs ? Did you take note of how many were buying shirts and hats ?

Last thing.......do you have any idea who you are taunting ? Do you know therealhammer ?

Besides, if there is demand for it, a rider/performer can move way bigger numbers of merch at an event than the number for autographs. Autographs can only be signed by a single person, usually with a time-constrained schedule. Merch can be moved all day long by any number of helpers.

If those shirts were $25.00 that's only 480 shirts. If the crowd really was 55,000 that is .008% of the crowd bought a Ronnie Mac shirt. Sounds pretty plausible to me. Even at $20.00 per shirt that's .0109% of the spectators bought one again pretty plausible.

I think the guy could easily sell 600 shirts, he is a spectacle and a novelty. People will jump on that bandwagon all day long. Good for him if he can capitalize on his 15 minutes of fame, or however long he can keep up this act. You have to make hay while the sun shines.

I don’t care if he sold 3 or 3000, if he made $5 or $50,000. The guy is doing his deal.

Just listen to the episode with Decoster and Pingree. It's in the intro part before Roger.
After, they talk about the same things brought up in this thread.
Izer and Kelly announced the race. Good listen.
