Supercross Can we get rid of Sheheen please?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone sick of hearing him announce as I am? Is there some sort of petition we can sign to replace him with somebody who knows what he's talking about?

All the js7 leg-humping is driving me insane!

Brilliant idea!

You may be the first person I have ever heard suggest something like this.

How did you think of it?

Isn't that Emig's job?

C'mon leave Ralph alone. He's simply fulfilling a role

he aint doing too bad of a job. i think he is a motorcycle enthusiast and is doing what he loves to do. if you are going to talk about bad motorcycle announcers, watch moto gp when they come to laguna seca and indianapolis. the people that i heard announcing are the guys that do rolex endurance racing and stuff. they have no idea what they are talking about and just talk about something they have no idea about. id rather see ralph announce thath then who they have doing it. sure sometimes he isnt always right, but big whoop. that ken stout guy could be doing it. then it would really suck. if jeff emig and another ex-mx racer it would be alittle better..maybe... ralph isnt what hurts they motorcycle broadcasts. its that erin bates person that ruins it. they just use her cuz she looks like the trophy girls(which is what she used to do). did we all watch the race this last saturday? ryan villipoto had gooten off the bike so his mechanic could unplug is exhaust and he could get on the bike again, and she secided to try to interview him! ***!!

+1, he should stick with NASCAR or something. Speed needs to take a page out of the CMRC nationals book, those announcer`s are awesome - so much energy and they ride! I have nothing against Sheheen, I just think there`s a lot of people that could do his job 100x better.

The CMRC announcers have the benefit of taking the footage they shoot of the racing back to the studio for editing and then adding their "excited" commentary. Not sure how they'd do on live coverage.

Disclaimer: I am in no way attempting to defend Ralph.

How about we petition to get a stepping box for RC, It really bothers me watching him look up to Emig and Ralphy.:thumbsup:

Ralph is o.k huh? He's like a kid in a candy store. You should see him walking around the pits with Fro. They go to all of the motor coaches and talk to team managers, riders, he's loving it. I'll say one thing, he's way better than listening to Bailey. I used to turn the volume off to watch on ESPN, he was so BAD!

I was shopping for a dirt bike the other day and i took ralphs advice and avoided Yamaha cause they cant turn....

Did anybody else catch that... "James is that a problem with the Yamaha"

I think Ralph is doing a fine job. He announces with enthusiasm and excitement. He may not know a whole lot, but who really listens to him anyways? Who would we have in his place? Bob Costas? Al Michaels? Charles Barkley?

The only thing missing from this particular get rid of Sheman thread is the trusty "just be glad you got coverage, in my day; all we had was cyclenews" comment.

As much as I dislike Ralph sometimes, and often wish they would just do the audio of the bikes instead of talking, I am with Hut and just glad we have coverage.
