2017 Supercross Discussion

I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

If you weren't shaking your head before, you will be now...

$4000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not that you'd expect anything less.

I'm not even upset about the amount, more the principle that it was definitely just racing and a sympathy move.

Money grab.

Pretty soon the racing is going to swarm protests with BS calls like that. If you don't think Husky won't keep that in the log book and use it against someone next year...

I've heard it's John Gallagher's last year as the dude calling all the shots.

You'd be surprised to find out the money the MCR guys make compared to some of the 'larger' names.

Don't get me wrong, they aren't making Dungey/Tomac/Roczen money; but they are very well paid compared to guys finishing 5 or 6 spots in front of them each week on more 'celebrated' teams.

I'm sure they're getting money from the Honda support they finally received, plus being the only "top team" wearing JT Racing, and their SmarTop Jacuzzi title sponsor.
