I think that the closed-list nature of these things is obviously good in that it protects sources and means they don't dry up. But the flip-side is that the closed nature facilitates power games and politics. Being able to toss people back over the wall gives them something to lose, makes them want to conform.

The sad thing is that, as far as I know, the individuals directly involved were all aware of, and happy with, the status quo. It's other parties that aren't happy.

I have no idea what the history behind any of this is, but it's a bit of a shame; SBS just isn't the same.

I'm a newb to all this torrent stuff. I joined "the site," copied and pasted the eurosport link, nothing comes up. Put in "Dakar," nothing comes up. No box to check for motorsports, either. What am I missing?

Go to Browse click 'Rally' and then hit enter.

Day 2 has SBS - AU has been up for a while. The 'Fish' doesn't have the Eursport Highlights. RU does though.

Do you have a Bit Torrent client? I like µTorrent. If you have a client installed, double clicking the 'File' that ends with '.torrent'. It should open the client and start it up.

If it helps, and if someone is willing to share the EuroSpot coverage, I can setup a private tracker just for the adv group. Feel free to PM me.

If we can get this going, I'll happily seed 24/7. That would be awesome to get the eurosport coverage back since I'm an active member on the fish site, but not RU.

Hey Guys,

I totally hear all of you on the politics BS. I was very surprised as last year this simply wasn't an issue. In fact, the same user telling me to stop this year, gave me permission last year to post over on the other site... very frustrating... I wish I could just give everyone RU accounts...

And as far as exclusivity goes, RU has about triple the users of the other site... so depending on how you view exclusivity...

I am doing all that I can to get the Eurosport coverage posted. Will keep everyone updated!

Eurosport coverage up on PEC!

Those .mpg and .ts in the larger packages are (fingers crossed) 720p!
