Yeah and one of those "only's" was a podium. And he would have had 2 podiums if the bike wouldn't have quit on the last lap in Jerez.

The only other pure satellite bikes to get in the top 6 this year looks to be Aoyama and Barbera at Jerez. And Barbera wouldn't have get his 6th if not for Colin's failing bike.

I'm gona go ahead and swipe this from the Crutchlow thread:

"What amazes me is that just about every time Yamaha throws a young hotshot rider into the team, Colin still manages to beat him or push him really close (in the case of Spies) ... yet every year Colin gets alot of flack on here for not retiring.
& he doesn't do it by building the team around himself & leaving the rookies to sink or swim in the deep end - quite the opposite, he is the best 'team man' in the paddock.

We all know that Cal is a really good, really fast guy who deserves a chance at this level ... I just wish Colin would get the credit he deserves on here"
