I knew you'd make an appearance. Agree about Dungey/Stewart, looks a lot worse than it was in regards to culpability. The mistake is to look at it through a GP lens. I think their helmets collided, Bubba was out before he hit ground. I'm also concerned he won't pass protocol for round 2. His championship is over.

Did u hear Emig say about Friese it was "deliberate"? Yet it "looked" way more benign than RD/JS. Anyway, I don't see how they won't give Peick a race ban. That gets settled off camera.

Btw Canard (who I also root for) taken Dungey way wide was worse I thought. Yet no issues.

Canard has always been aggressive, and deliberate with his racecraft. He rides very old school. If we think back to just 10 to 15 years ago it was the norm to run your competitor high or block his line aggressively.
I think aggressive riding is coming back, there is too much money and too few good rides available now to be polite. Win or go home!

Is it true that Dungey fans aren't go to the Oakland round now because they fear for their safety?

Anyone else think it was cool to have six different makes in the top 6? Granted the Husqvarna is really a KTM, but still cool nonethless.

It's gonna be a great season. 17 races 18 weeks, that's brutal. I was looking up what these guys make, way too little for what they do, not to mention the income they generate for the promotors.

Anybody see the preseason build up show? Jesus, all the adversity these guys go through is crazy. No way are they appreciated enough for what they do. I find myself rooting for all of them. (Well except Barcia and Reed, though I have to admit, I haven't seen too much of Bam Bam). Carmichael is god awful in the booth. Loved his racing, but when did he becomes such an asshole? He is ok with riders riding dirty.

I hate to say it, but Dungy's line had him on a collision corse, he had to know going into that corner that he was going to hit one of those bikes... that said I dont think thats the line he wanted, it could be that he landed that last jump in a poor position, and I do not recall him taking that line on that corner at any other time in the race.

Its great that supercross is back on, cant wait to see them live next month!!!

Alright man, I'll admit, I just saw the race last night because I was out of town. I was several drinks in when everything went down with Bubba. He was doing much better than I expected. I was really disappointed to see him knocked out. The guy has shit luck. So I mouthed off a bit. I also understood your earlier post to blame James and I realize after reading your last that you weren't claiming that.

I can see your point and I don't really have any reason to suspect Dungey of malice. I'm sober and over it now. We'll see how the season goes I suppose. I've never been a Dungey fan and frankly think the guy is overrated.

Friese had that coming of course. I don't think anyone disagrees but the penalty and fine handed out by the AMA against Peick is also unassailable. You can't do that. end/

Great read guys, agree with most of it except Dungey being a hack WTF.
Friese on the other hand is just very aggressive and sure, probably had it coming but shit, lets be alittle professional. ..
Sure Peick lost sponsors on that meltdown. What these guys do to prepare for war is insane...I wish every rider to be safe, alot of hormones turning into aggressive riding what else do you expect?
Win or go home, or atleast podium. ....Ryan didn't podium once last season.
he definitely has paid his dues
