Sanity are spot on...the Brits always take a lil bit of talent and make it into "Super Rockstar" status. Cal will be lucky to make it into top 10 for 2011, especially with the the best development rider and crew walking away.

Woe is Yamaha continuing forward as an award winning brand.

There you go again Dray.

I don't recall referencing any specific rider in my first post that's been injured nor any specific year - it was a general post. Nor did I say anything about "other riders not being mentioned in the same breath" - it's you that think everything is about what's his name and it's you that got bent out of shape. The post could have bee referring to Stoner or JT or Chris V or Randy D. or Dani,etc, etc. or any rider that's been accused of making excuses because of injury.

Funny how you feel so threaten. You brought up Spies in your first post and now you even bringing up Jorge to put them down for no reason. Pitiful.

Cal will have to be judged only against Abraham for the first half of the year at least, being the only 2 rookies in the field. Look how long it took simoncelli to get up the front. This season is going to be about learning the tracks before next years level playing field where we can get a fair picture of how good Cal is, hopefully against Johnny Rea on one of the satellite Hondas.

Drays "he'll be lucky to finish top ten.." although delivered as a put down in typically sneering style, is actually not too far off the mark..

Four HRC RCVs, two GP11s and two M1s make eight factory bikes..Suzuki don't count.

If Cal can beat Col and finish top ten, with everyone staying fit, as a rookie I reckon that will be a result first year.

Fair play Dray,you havent got a good word to say about any rider who isnt named Valentino.Give it a bloody rest for Christ sake!
If it was up to you the entire Moto GP starting grid would consist of just one rider!

Everybody is entitled to their opinion.You may not agree with that opinion (RawDawg) but their is no need to keep dragging it off the topic (Crutchlow)

Just because you,Rawdawg,are a Rossi-hater does not mean we all have to be one.

How lovely.

Something I wrote on here earlier has been taken down by whoever administrates this site. As it didn't contain any foul language, I can only assume that my opinion about how much of Valentino Rossi's true personality he actually shares with the world is in direct contravention of the site's posting policies.

Thats the third time I've seen this happen over a post refering to Rossi - so I'm assuming that his mum is working here as a site moderator. That or some sociopathic Rossi fan is reporting all non Rossi favoring posts as abuse and the automatic monitoring software is taking them down.

That's the first time I've been censored since that unfortunate incident with the nun, the donkey and the polaroid.
The reason the posts are going away is because this topic is about Crutchlow. Too many threads are turning into hate threads about other riders. Stay on topic, and don't abuse others, and the comments will stay.
