Should Eli have roughed up Dungey a little more? If not, did Osborne go too far dumping Savatgy for the title?

Eli/dungy... roughing him up more would made Eli look more of a joke, from what he showed during the race he had know clue how to win a championship knows how to win races sure does, should have done what was right win the race. and let the cards falls as they be.

Osborne/savatgy for me yes, but ama/fim have know issues with it. I'm waiting to see how they handle a very bad situation. problem with dumping riders its been happening for 50 years.

If I were Eli, I would've stayed in 2nd the whole race and just pressured RD, hopefully forcing him into a mistake. Then at the end, I'd give him a love tap on 1 of the last corners. I don't like dirty riding, but guys are aggressive out there, so it is what it is. I've been cleaned out at amateur races way harder than anything Tomac did to RD that night. Nothing wrong with some contact. But like mentioned above, Eli cracked when he had the ball in his court. It's on him, at the end of the day. I'm sure there will be a SX title in his future. He can start off by grabbing the outdoor title, which I think he will.

I got JMart for 250s.

I just saw that rumor this morning also. Very interesting. I find it odd, since his '17 contract should go through the Nationals. Plus, we have a deal to do his merch for outdoors (which the items are designed / printed and on their way to Cali right now). I guess none of that means anything if he decides that he doesn't want to do outdoors. I wasn't expecting that lol.

Reed usually does not race outdoors anymore. His contract is up at Yamaha and there is no way he would jump on a KTM with no test time, to do that series. Tomac is most def not out. We just got a ton of merch from his agent and I'm working on his stuff as we speak. He will be there. Millsaps is another who rarely races outdoors now. He rode (and won the title) at the Canadian series last summer. Not sure what his plans are for this summer, but I thought he was going to be doing the Nationals this year. As far as Dungey, until I see an official announcement, I will assume he is still racing. But I have heard now that he may call it quits.

Probably because he struggles on the outdoor tracks, plus the injuries are a bit more substantial (arguably). Struggle might not be the right word, he is clearly better at SX tham MX. I think that's a fair way to say it. Plus he looked like he needed a break after last Saturday night. Just had that look. ET3 should have little competition week to week.

Hey hey hey, what's all this talk of working on merchandise for all these riders??? We have no way to know you're really working on said items, you should probably send your RCTech buddies "sample items" just so we know it legit. But no Super Bowl jerseys
