You know he didn't want to be there right then. That's a tough spot. Putting on a smile and representing your sponsors while trying not to cuss.

What pissed me off... they put him on before Malcolm who actually podiumed. Totally disrespected.

Fan of Ken, I blame this on the producers.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in Valencia during the 80's.

That pissed me off at first, too, but I wonder whether they just did that because they grabbed Ken last minute before he was gonna book it out of there. Maybe they didn't want to keep him waiting around for an interview he didn't want to do.

Well then I would say that Ken should have pushed back and made sure Malcolm got his limelight first.

It's speculation either way. Still shitty for 27.

Im glad they put Ken on first, that way we would not have the last interview of the night be whining Roczen! Malcolm is always a great interview so it was much better to close out with a positive.

If it bleeds, it leads. Roczen was a bigger story. Could have been before Marvin, Cooper, etc. doesn't matter.

Malcolm's interview was awesome and he sure put a smile on everyone's face to end the show. Looking forward to another great result from Malcolm next week!

Bingo!

I'd love to see Mookster get a start and "be in it" for the overall.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Said it in the other thread, but there's a lot of people on here butthurt on Mookie's behalf. He didn't look bothered at all based off of the ear to ear grin he had on his face, and the crowd noise.

I was wondering why Kenny even agreed to the interview. Yea, I get he wants to be loyal to his fans, but jesus christ that was painful to watch.

Still smiling thinking about Mook's interview, that dude cracks me up!!!!!

I don't think they have a choice and get fined if they refuse to give Interviews, no?
Remember AC post race Interview at Vegas 2019 after losing the 250 championship to Ferrandis? That was really really painful to watch aswell.

Remember how they grabbed Tomac right after he tossed it away at East Rutherford? Seems like they are required to do the interview but who knows?

That Tomac interview is what I thought of watching Kenny.

Of course the riders feel obligated to give an interview and grabbing a rider straight up while emotions are still high, is a good tactic to gain some entertaining insight. Did Roczen want to do it? Probably not, but it did show how frustrated he’s got to be feeling right now.
Do any of you seriously think Mookie was upset he had to wait an extra minute for his first ever 450 podium while they talked to someone who is/ was in the championship fight?!
How easily some people are offended is becoming ridiculous.

I thought the riders back to 5th needed to be available, guess not. That was painful to watch Roczen try to get through that. I actually wish they would have left him alone.

His job is to do those interviews, good or bad.

They want to put a camera in your face, you do your job.

What would y'all be saying if he told producers to fuck off?

Make sure you downvote!

That was tough to watch.. Rooting for him in the outdoor nationals if he decides to give it a go. For a guy who sustained the arm injuries he did & make it back to a championship contender is admirable. Mad respect K-roc !

Speak softly and carry a big stick.

You men are too sensitive. I was hoping Ken would win this title. However, it was a big night as far as the championship goes, so why on earth would they not interview a championship contender?

In any other sport, when there is a championship game they usually at least have a quick interview with the losing coach. They knew he wouldn't be in the post race press conference, so they had to talk to him sometime. Maybe I'm missing something here.

LOL....you don't know me at all. I am not one who is easily offended. My comment is about respect...I guess that's an "old-school" thing lost on society today. Pushing drama as entertainment seems to be the new norm.

Sorry....but I disagree. Ken did not belong onscreen before any podium rider.

We’re pretty tough on these guys, he has to go through the reasons. Maybe the settings weren’t where they needed them to be. I don’t think these guys are blame others types, they generally own up to having a bad day or making mistakes, at least that’s what I see.
