A Reader Comments On The AMA Supercross Mess

I just finished reading your piece on history repeating itself (, 11-9), and I could not agree more. Just as the AMA took the low road with the Roger Edmondsen deal, they appear to be doing the exact same thing again. It also seems odd to me that the same names seem to be appearing on "VP of this, Manager of <BR>that, Director of this.".... the repetition of these names on several boards, list, etc., seems to be a clear-cut case of "conflict of interest", the very same "situation" that they tried to use, (unsuccessfully, thankfully) to prevent you from being on the AMA Board of Directors.<BR><BR>These people have been artificially shielded from reality, and have felt no responsibility for their inept actions. The possibility of you, Jeff Nash, and Kevin Schwantz serving on their board must surely frighten the life out of them, knowing that the truth may finally be out in the open for all to see. I urge you to continue your fight for what is the right thing to do, and to never allow people of this caliber to conceal their actions behind a "closed-door" board meeting. <BR><BR>I have the utmost faith in your ability to tell it like it is, and hope that you will continue to keep up the pressure on these buffoons.
