Bye bye to Bobke?

It seems that at a recent cycling event in Central Pennsylvania Bob Roll let slip that his contract with Versus was not renewed for 2008. He said that Phil and Paul were renewed for next year but he was left out in the cold.

I have not heard back from Comcast, Versus’ parent. Has anyone heard anything?

    This is news to me, but I think that his assistant, BKittie, has a website. Maybe you could email and ask her?

    That would be a drag. I know everybody makes fun of Bob but I think he’s great and has a lot of enthusiasm and insight.

    That collection of footage they ran from his cycling days in the Tour were priceless…expecially when his chain broke during his hot pursuit of the slowest man in the peloton, and he threw his bike….hilarious!

    I don’t understand that decision if it is true. As a pro racer Bob took cycling seriously but not himself. He takes that same attitude to broadcasting…he knows his stuff as well as anyone but has a good time and so does the viewer. If Versus drops him many of his fans will follow him but where can he go???

    I saw Bob Roll at a talk last year about the same time. He considers not being renewed a good thing. He gets to drink and lay on his couch, and then sign up for more money the next year… So don’t get too worried just yet…
