Evil or Very Mad

BT are launching their own sports channel to rival Sky, and they've bagged exclusive rights to show MotoGP from 2014 for 5 years.

It wouldn't be so bad if it had the same global following as F1, but the truth is, it doesn't come close. You only have to look at adverts for BT Sport in any form of media, and you'd be lucky to see or hear the word "MotoGP" anywhere at all. Saying that, you'd be lucky nowadays to hear about MotoGP on the BBC bar any "coming up next" announcements on TV during race weekends.

The Barclays Premier League and Aviva Premiership Rugby are the big draws for BT Sport. Everything else they're offering are just side orders.

The guys at Eurosport will be out of jobs come the end of this season. If BT had any sense...

Can't really see how it's gonna be anything but bad news to be honest, the last thing the sport needs is to reduce its potential audience to a few hundred-thousand.

Probably won't do anything for the British riders trying to work up the ladder either.
