There is a God!

 I'm now a believer, my prayers were answered. Melanie as nice as she is, was absolutely the wrong person to front the Motogp coverage. It was blatantly apparent that she had no clue as to what Motogp was all about or who the riders were etc, etc., she even struggled reading an autocue. Perhaps if she did it in the nude i could have put up with her a bit longer.

Bye Bye :)

 Agreed a bit useless really, when on the opening night she mentioned MotoGp would be sexy I despaired.

Not a clue, why do they do this put people on who have no idea.

Now I wonder did she jump or was she pushed?

Never saw her in action

 but I think they should find a demure, younger, knowledgable, well dressed female who while talking about the intracacies of suspension and what not, keeps you wondering if she is the type who wears a garter belt...

Bt learn quickly

 Getting rid of mel and getting Parrish on board was a good move, coverage is improving IMO so now unless your a peasant like Benny we don't hVe to copy and paste anymore lol.

She never belonged. Dumb appointment by some thick sexist UKIP type director who in his shallow little mind thought bike enthusiasts need 'babes'. The grid is full of brolly dollies - that's plenty enough!

I want opinions by those who know the game. Hodgson is coming along O.K. Toseland a little wooden for T.V really, Doyle seems to know his onions. The Keith and Jules show remains a little spikey, with Ryder perhaps the weak link there.

 She really wasn't the right person for the job, I personally would like to see Matt Roberts given a role either as main presenter or down in pit lane doing interviews.

 Hear hear Nostroterrapin. Bring back Suzy P would be my number one choice and reinstate Jake Humphrey back into F1 - this is where they both belong, they just don't seem right in their new roles - not feelin it.

Craig Doyle?

I'm not interested in anything the double glazing salesman has to say.  Mel was just an anchor - a sexy anchor - and wasn't supposed to be an authority on MotoGP.

Suzi Perry should be put out to pasture IMO.  It was OK having her as eye candy when she was in her twenties and thirties but it is just embarrassing watching her flirt with Eddie etc.
