top poster do everyone a favor and yourself and just shut up. And I don't even like crutchlow but what he say's is common fuking sense. He's being realistic so should you, like the fact you would push that bike like a baby and be 1min plus off the pace..

No he isn't making excuses.

If he wanted to make excuses he would have made a big deal out of his shoulder this year but the didn't. He kept his mouth shut and got on with the job instead of using his shoulder as a crutch looking for sympathy and well wishes. He never brought it up as an excuse for not winning or not getting the result which he desired.

Unlike others who pulled out the injury card when the results aren't there, Cal didn't do it. Much respect to him.

I agree that he's got a load of things to overcome, but I just feel that there is a certain edginess to Cal's riding which might translate into MotoGP. I just hope he adapts his style rather than trying to adapt the bike, but his practise times so far are pretty good.

I wonder who you would be referring to RawDawg. Let's see, there is Randy, Dani, Rossi. All 3 were injured seriously. Rossi having to deal with a broken foot and the motorcross injury for which his surgery lasted longer than usual because of the extent of damage.

I don't recall anyone asking Cal how is his injury, but the 3 from Motogp was asked about quite a lot, especially Rossi, and he give his honest feedback.

I bet you are pointing your statement directly at Rossi. You could not resist your one eyed cyclops way of thinking when it comes to Rossi. At least Rossi give back to Motogp by continuing to race as you saw the uptick in attendance when he came back.

What do you think about Ben's dissappearence the few times with a bad bike and refusing to complete the races? You are laughable.
