OLN drops the ball

Recommended Posts

Looks like OLN is not going to show any MX coverage until July 30. 🙂 They just want to air rerun after rerun after rerun of the Tour de France. I just e-mailed them my disapproval and hope you fellow MX enthusiasts do the same. If OLN can't handle the coverage, they never should have put in a bid to televise the MX Nationals. 🙂 What do you think?

There is a week long break in the MX season and they show the previous weeks stuff anyway, thats why there is such a long break.

They should have never went to OLN. They should have stayed on ESPN where they belong!

It is all about selling commercial time. Watch some of their more popular shows and see what commercials are running. As soon as company's start buying more airtime during the nats broadcast, they will come around.

You would think that when a network gets the bid to cover an event they would be obligated to cover all the events.. AMA loses on this one.. I guess MX isn't as big as we all thought. 🙂

It's not as easy as that. Theres alot of money and politics involved. From what I understand we're lucky to have ANY coverage of MX this year.

Is the race coverage going to continue where it left off, or pick up from the current races? The last one I saw was Budd's Creek...the 125's. Do we have to wait 'til the 30th to see the 250's? How long does the Tour De Frogs last? Does anybody know when the European or Canadian series starts?

they showed budds creek 250s last saturday I believe.

I wish Speed would cover sx and the outdoors, I think they did a very good job at daytona, plus they had same day coverage

It's only two hours per week of MX coverage. You would think OLN could squeeze it in.

Dont get mad, there was a two week break in the series. OLN has nothing to show. Last saturday was when buds creek aired, and next saturday will be Red bud. So no they did not drop the ball. I guess no one remebers how many times we sat down to watch the race on ESPN only to find girls soft ball playing or when we didnt get to see 125 supercross heat races because a golf game ran longer than it was supost to
