u all must be asses, i am sure they know more than u do, get a life off ur computers

yes, Nitro has got it half right. Both are hopeless commetators. Steve Martin is/was a great rider but should stick to the track where engine noise makes any speaking inaudible. Green is a clown and the combination of their idiot comments makes watching great bike racing almost unbearable. give the job to someone else.

"Jonathan Green and Steve Martin provide entertaining and insightful technical analysis of the race" - I'll agree that Steve Martin is insightful but to call Jonathan Green entertaining or insightful is ridiculous. The guy is an absolute nob. A packet of chips has more insight than him.

Get rid of him.

SilverStreak -World SBK vs MotoGP Race Coverage & Ben  April 8, 2010 05:36 PM
Dorna Sports should emulate FIM SuperBike coverage. Jonathan Green and Steve Martin provide entertaining and insightful technical analysis of the race. The audio is clear and not overwhelmed by the track noise. On the other hand, the MotoGP audio is so bad that I can't understand what they are saying most of the time, and the background noise drowns out the race coverage. And what is it with Rossi's onboard camera? Seeing his rear-end shift side-to-side tells me nothing! Put the camera in front of the bike so we can see what happening ahead, especially when passing. I hope SPEED can help us here.

By the way, Good Luck Ben! Don't worry about being a rookie here. Ride hard. Get out in front. Make those brilliant passes. That's your style.

Perfect. Now we can watch the races and then get out and ride a bit without having to cut the day short. Yessss.

I don't wanna have to wake up at 8am or stay up till 1am. I liked the way they had it before. Every Sunday at 3pm or 6pm.

I hope to hell that they don't give us idiot commentators and keep the international commentators that they've had for the past few years.

It's about freaking time! Well done Speed - Finally...
