Chad Reed is a legend.

The thing that people don't understand is that all of the top riders have some level of ego. It's required for this sport. They have to hide it a bit for the sake of selling products, but it's still there. People rate their TV interviews, and form opinions on the person, but they don't understand the mentality that brought them to that level in the first place.

I will miss the rider. I won't miss the tweets, but they're understandable.

It was a good run. I hope he takes the summer off and comes back strong. I think Chad is still fully capable of winning races with the right mindset

To the he's spending his "own money" crowd he's not.....he is spending Discount Tires money. Discount Tire is tired of the Chad Reed shit show(pun intended). Poor results, injuries, and Fly360 was the last straw. If he was spending his "own money" the 22 semi would still be rolling down the interstate. It's only about the money. Total cost of sponsorship did not justify total amount of exposure for the brand. 22 was an inequitable investment and they pulled the plug. Stay classy

You did see he said they've got his back right?

Seems they're not tired of anything.

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Can you please point us to the source that says Discount Tire is parting ways with Chad Reed? I saw where Two Two shut the doors, but nowhere have I heard about Discount Tire. In fact, on his social media (where we know the Reeds air everything) he says Discount Tire along with other sponsors still "have his back."

Your media post is pretty far off base. Anyone who's done any minimal amount of research before claiming what you did would know that what you've posted is completely inaccurate. So who really should "stay classy?"

They "have his back" but not the team? wassat

What does that mean "they got his back" in business terms?

|

6/21/2015 9:52 AM

Does that mean discount tire is not going to contract with any other moto teams? This experiment failed. Sorry everybody. Chad is not bigger than the sport he tried to leverage his position against the powers that be with Fly360 Iit was a massive fail.

Jim McMahon tried this against the NFL with the Chicago bears when he wore the Adidas headbands, history just repeated itself. Leveraging his own status against the status quo.

Stay classy

They aren't going to sue him and will probably be on his stock car racing program!

But this will be turned around into the Fly360 camera not being able to be used as to why the team closed shop.

Why you guys say that Discount tire is leaving? Chad says that they are still part of his program, this is second year of the 3 year contract they have.

Seems pretty dumb that NBC would sign such an exclusive deal with a company, especially a contract that prohibits any other brand to run a pov camera. Thats like saying since Monster is the sponsor of sx, so no other riders can run an energy drink sticker on their shrouds. Ive heard them say they didn't anticipate any other cameras attempting to break into the sport. Really? Names like Sony or any other camera companies never came to mind?

We've been over this a million times people. MXSports didn't sign GoPro deal, NBC did. It has a lot more to do than just a product sponsorship as it also involves video rights for an event that NBC owns the filming rights to.

Not at the time the contract was signed with Go Pro, I believe I heard that from Coombs?

If only one offer is on the table, then you take it.
