    Greedy Top Gear Presenters!

    Anyone read the story that both Hammond and May want more money than Clarkson? They want £30k an EPISODE! each! What shite TG would be if all the money was spent on their salaries!

    JC apparently gets £2,000,000 from the BBC every year - that's presumably for other things too, not just Top Gear, and the little guy and the hairy useless bloke get £350,000 a year.

    Who knows, but I sure wouldn't be sad if James left - he is so irritating. Maybe wouldn't be a bad thing if some new presenters came in to be honest as I know a lot of people are tiring of the format of the show now.

    I think he said that a while ago, but there are now fresh talks this past week over pay.

    Hammonds book says it all, its the job he loves and would do it for free. He is merely negotiating a new contract. Clarkson gets more as he owns part of the rights to the show.

    I think the magic word there is "story"... the media in general love a good story, often at the expense of truth. They very rarely let a little thing like lack of factual evidence get in the way

    Radio1 said yesterday on their news that the story was absolute rubbish.

    Clarkson has more rights to Top Gear in the States so more money for him, and as for the other two well they work as a team so if they were on not alot of moey then fair play to try and get more money, but as has been said it's from the dailes so not alot of credence can be placed on those stories

    Rumour I heard too was how JC cheated on the arctic challenge and got flown off to a hotel each night? No idea if this is true or not...
