Aholus, I think you have the bull by the nuts again! Now if you had said the risk is too great for Flo to stay at Yamaha after the pounding he's copped this year, I might have agreed with you.
I've never seen such a p155weak act from a rider in the series yet! The fact he gets paid so much for coming 5th is why real fans don't think much of him.

Bob the butt...any reasonable true fan would grant a rider that had won 7 World Titles including 5 straight, a sub-par season that had included serious injury. He did finish 3rd at Laguna, remember? My guess is you gave Stoner plenty of lee way when he decided to go fishing in the middle of the season. :)

@aeolus

I am well aware of Yamahas position before, and during Rossi's tenure, which is a matter of historical record.
I never questioned his right to take his bat and ball elsewhere either, so I'm not quite sure what your issue is there.
As for the challenge of Lorenzo being greater with Rossi on the Ducati, well...bullsh1t - he is not confident in his ability to meet Lorenzo on equal terms and moving to Ducati provides him with a face -saving way to enter his new role as the past master.
Sure the Yamaha may be a better package right now but that's the point - if Rossi fails to win on the Ducati he will have valiantly challenged on "underdog" machinery and it won't be his fault.

The notion that Rossi leaves Yamaha out of fear of Lorenzo is ridiculous, having bested him the two previous years. Besides, it seems clear the decision to leave for Ducati was made even before the season started.

What does Rossi have to do, wait around 'til he is good enough? Lorenzo is obviously taking advantage of the situation, starting from an injured Rossi since after Qatar.

In 2006 Rossi lost because of the Bike. In 2007 the tires were not as good as the Bridgestone. Now in 2010, physically the season is marred by injury. The best riders took advantage of the situation due to circumstances. Thats how Schwantz won his title, and there is nothing wrong with that. It's just what is..

I can't wait to see Bob hahahoohooheehee his way out of this one when Valentino starts winning races on the Ducati next year.

"Real fan"? You're the furthest thing from a real fan that there is, Bob. You've probably never even been in a club race so what would you know about winning races and championships at the MotoGP level? Do yourself a favor and comment on the racing, not the personalities.

In the end, history will tell the amazing story of one Valentino Rossi, and you will just whither away into nothingness, forgotten because you've never accomplished anything worth noting.

AdrenalineFlunkie, if I commented on the racing, I would be out of place on this forum! Haha...btw, I don't speak any louder than you on this forum, it maybe because the truth rings louder?
Old Nob, Flossi will beat Stoner next year? Possibly, but not as often as Stoner beats him.
The truth remains that JL has clobbered Flo enough to make him eat almost every word he has dribbled out about Yamaha previously and it's also a fact that on equal machinery, George has PROVEN to be consistently quicker and more consistent.
Rossi can't handle it and his behaviour for the rest of the season will be the make or break of his career.
I've praised his talent...as a racer, but never as a sportsman.
