Why does everyone assume spies would get the seat vaccated by VR or JL if one of them were to go?

He's dropped the ball the last two rounds, but as he has a contract he may be cost effective. However I would think yamaha may poach pedrosa as a No.2 for VR in that senario. Dani has said the only reason he signed a one year deal last year was because their were no yams available.

Ducati - NH/JL
Honda - CS/AD
Yamaha - VR/DP
Suzuki - MM/AB

Yam Vale/Dani
Honda Casey/Andrea
Duke Jorge/Nicky

That's really a silly game, quite fun but useless in the end, even the riders don't know at this point. Except maybe Vale who is always the master playing the medias.

As is to early to display opinions,i really don't see VR to make the switch to any other team,i don't see him starting a new project all over again,neader JL because he knows now as last year that the best bike in town is the the other side i see Honda getting rid of Pedrosa and his polemic manager Puig after giving him the chance in five seasons and not taking any championship(he is fast but not furius)and never ever be.i see the young AD getting stronger averyday with lots of potencial,and there are three riders with lots of talent and never had the chance to ride in a strong bike Marco Melandri(MM),Tony Elias(TE) and Ben Spies(BS)So for 2011 yam VR/JL,hon AD/MM duc CS/TE

First thing to consider is team mates then money

Rossi, and to a lesser extent Pedrosa don't like having fast team mates so wherever these two move they'll be paired with second tier riders. Lorenzo and Stoner don't seem to care

Lorenzo wants big money, Rossi wants huge money, Pedrosa we don't know about and Stoner doesn't seem to care(last year Maladin was in the top 3 of Oz's top paid sportsmen, Stoner didn't make the top 20)

With that in mind here's my two scenarios for 2011

Duc - CS&NH
Yam - VR&BS
Hon - JL&AD
Duc - Jl&NH
Yam - VR&BS
Hon - CS&AD

Although he's big money, I don't think Yamaha will lose Rossi and I think Pedrosa could be gone if he doesn't start performing

First of all, before predicting what Rossi will ride in 2011, follow the lead where Jerry Burgess will stationed. Rossi were too dependent to JB. If JB stay at Yamaha, you got the answer already. If JB move to his circus somewhere else, Rossi will follow. JB is the cash cow for Rossi.

Whenever Rossi and JB apart, the championship title door is open wider for opponents. Right now, Lorenzo were to prove Rossi-JB combination isn't working anymore. There a couple of big questions if Lorenzo able to win the title with a huge margin of points:

1. Would Rossi return to Honda if JB settling up there?

2. How good Rossi handling the pressure without JB around to workout his magic solutions?
