personally I am glad she has been found out to be useless it was embarrassing to watch stavros and co trying to feed her info from which to ask questions. if the powers to be want a tart to be anchor girl at least get a tart with a brain.


However given the right program I think she could increase the viewers that watch , say, cricket, move over boycott we got a right one ere

 What's with Craig Doyle anyway ?, what kind of authority is he on bike racing or is he there as 'eye candy' for the female viewers ?. For Crissake give us people who know what they're talking about and not just 'camera friendly' vacuous presenters. They wouldn't dare put some pretty/handsome know-nothing to commentate on the footy but apparently any clown will do for bikes  !.

Bit Harsh ?

 I have met most of these presenters and Mel came over as avery nice person and in tv terms her cv is better than most ,Toseland is atrocious ,Hosdgson has the personality of a frog ,a grid interviewer clearly no one wants to speak to !,and Gavin Emmitt is an arse licking ex  journo on a jolly ,Craig Doyle is slicker to camera but is he really into bikes ? and Iwan 400metre runner,whats that about ?,Heuwen is the more genuine of the Ryder /Heuwen pairing and has rider and commentary pedigree ,Ryder not a nice piece of work and as banal as they come,Parrish a better proposition than Hodgson or Toseland by far,he would of worked well with Mel as he would of interacted,BT sport paying the price for being mugged by flannelers and having a big cheque book above presenting skill and love of the sport,I don't include m/s Sykes in that btw ,she is let down by her dross links especially Toseland and the lack of knowledge of the sport which in fairness she hasn't has a chance to grasp,BT still have some weeding to do and some ortunist con men to sort but like water they will find ther own level

She was a nice set-a-****, but as useless as ****-on-a-bull in terms of knowledge and presence. I'm sure there are female racers out there who could be recruited instead.

Not at all. Don't know what it is with you thick stig, but you're full of bitterness and hate for most who love the sport and try their best, then some northern slapper comes along and you're full of praise. Do those sagging t!ts, and flappy bingo wings give you a little twinge down below? Or is it the vacant look you like?

Man, she's f*ckin' useless and had no place there. Just stick to name droppin', 'cause you're sh!te at everything else.

"He would of", "he would of" Come on, tell us which of the UK's great public schools doesn't teach the use of "have" to describe past events, "thestig"?

Hahahahahahahahaha, f*ckin' moron.

Craig Doyle

I'm not sure what his knowledge of MotoGP is but I watched him covering the IoM TT and he didn't do a bad job at all. In fact his knowledge of the island track and specific sections impressed me !

But yeah, bring back Suzi P !!
