Re: 2017, thoughts on how the moves might pan out.

Why be nervous about reality? "Reality" is the unavoidable fact that Rossi has systematically demonized every one of the major rivals who has stood in his way. Of the competitors who won titles at VR's expense only Nicky came off relatively unscathed. Max, Sete, Casey, Jorge, Marc; ALL have been at...

Re: Suzi Perry meets Valentino Rossi - full interview (link)

A recent interview with Uccio offers another ugly view of Rossi and those that inhabit his "Echo Chamber" entourage. http://www.marca.com/motor/motogp/gp-japon/2016/10/16/5802f64d46163f42748b4571.html Google Translation: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60092457/Uccio/1.jpg https://dl.dropboxuser...

Re: MotoGP 2015, Valencia

That's just plain hurtful. Poor VR. :lol: As I started reading Lorenzo's words, I was kind of hoping he'd finish with the Karmic zinger,"Valentino will never win another championship (race?!)." Why not? If Rossi's mental state persists, Team Yamaha is not exactly going to be the Happy Fun Bus next ...

Re: Shut down the internet...

...at any angle the bike will stand up if the brakes are applied. Not if the front wheel is locked, or nearly so. Given MM's shallow lean angle, I can't see any kick or bump being strong enough to pole-ax the bike so quickly. IMO, the only likely cause of the instantaneous wash-out is a front brake...

Re: Shut down the internet...

A popular sentiment I've been seeing about this: Rossi's statement about Marquez in PI > "Obviously Marquez would never do that, Rossi is just rattled etc." I dare say Spock would not approve of your "logic." No one is denying the possibility that MM was being a big naughty at P.I. That's not the p...

Re: Not like this

I have never experienced anything like this level of tension in sport... Well, not since the 1995 Rugby World Cup (being South African). Can someone please pull a Nelson Mandela? Mr Rainey, sir? What will MM do to retaliate? I don't think "surrender" is an option... Someone could get hurt or worse....

Re: MotoGP 2015, Sepang

The only thing I want to say is that Rossi clearly wasn't trying to knock him off his bike he was trying to push him off the track. It doesn't make it right but it's an important difference. It seems a bit unclear why MM fell. Did his brake lever get bumped? (Or deliberately squeezed?! ;) Just kidd...

If he'd kept his ego, and mouth in check, none of this ever would have happened. People who go out of their way to stir the pot can't complain when they get splashed in the face. First sentence, how do you figure that? Did Rossi say something before PI, where it started. 2nd, Rossi was correct in t...

You guys shouldnt mix them. They are related but not one and the same. 1 - MM being as agressive as possible with VR and possible PI antics brught up by VR; 2 - VR taking MM out.

I think the only comment being disputed is that Geonerd (appears) to be insunuating that Bridgestone are manipulating results for a specific rider or showing bias based upon allocations.

Yes they have. Tires are decided before the season begins, subject to minor changes due to Bridgestone's development program. And, in either event, who decides at which tracks the tires do or do not get the 'J-Lo Approved' treatment? Bridgestone decide. The tracks where they use the tires without t...
