I thought Motogp was about racing.. Any comments about the conduct of the riders should have been aired behind closed doors, Yamaha have lost a lot of respect from fans for this, would they be critisizing Jorge had Rossi been leading the Championship, doubtful. Sour grapes.
I think Rossi may finish the season early because of this, to prepare for next year, with the added incentive, Could be Yamaha's loss Ducatis gain,

I am no Rossi Fan (was always a Sete fan, now he could race AND battle for a win/position) and even after the really harsh Jerez move took it and carried on. Go back and watch the race again Jlo barges Rossi out on the first lap and slows rossi up, but they MOVE that is in question Jlo leans on rossi who is already on the Apex (inside line) Rossi has no choice but to push back as the corner opens up. This was 100% Jlo fault he had all to lose and nothing to gain Yamaha know this but are massaging his ego. Rossi will be laughing as will Ben. Jlo best enjoy his 2010 WC meal as there will be no seconds in 2011!!

Whilst I don't remember Rossi complaining when Stoner stuffed it up the inside of him on the last bend at the Sachsenring, he and Lorenzo are currently team mates whichever way you dice it.

While Yamaha are paying Rossi's wages they are entitled to ask him not to splatter the coming world champion. Endov.

IMO, Yamaha have completely lost it! First they do not release Vale early to allow him to test - which is very petty especially as Ducati have released Stonor and now this - would they have had this approach is Rossi was staying with them next season??? I think not :)
if Jorge was so concerned about the championship why did he keep battling with Vale? He could very easily have settled for the safe points for 4th, especially as Dani was not racing. IMO, I prefer to see real racing and thought it was great - Motogp needs more of this :)

Hey! Where did bobbutticing go!?

The only "dangerous" move I saw was when JLo tried to "grass" Vale.

Maybe they should get Sete to coach JLo next season.

Anyway Vale said he dropped back just to have a go at "Yorgy". hahahaha

Racefan, do you really want team orders????

It is simple really, Rossi was ahead for quite a few laps, George decided that he wanted to finish in front of him. Rossi wouldn't let him so there was a fight. What happened to the racing adage "the onus is on the overtaker" ?

Why is everyone making Rossi out to be the bad guy?

Did anyone else notice the smirk on Furusawa's face during the scuffle? It was priceless, and he was obviously enjoying it. I feel for him getting dragged into this by Jarvis in his last season.

Where had they been before The Doctor arrived?
Mr. Furusawa is probably a god, but he is a god of nothing without the man who precisely knows what it takes to do the job.
Short memory they have.
Rats.

Other than Rossi blocking with his leg I didn't have a problem with both riders trying their best to beat the other guy,seemed pretty stupid to risk crashing out when you are only fighting for second loser position. If Rossi and Lorenzo were fighting for the win or the championship it would of made more sense, but it was an exciting finish to the race.
