i would strongly disagree with team orders for Casey as he would not want to get any help from other to secure his title. the victory would taste a lot sweeter for him.

on the other hand, i agree with team orders for Jorge since he seems to need one. :p

Never had team orders before, is this because rossi would not accept an order not to do his best. I reckon they'll let ben shine this weekend at home but after that he'll be told not to challenge Jorge.

It says no "official" team orders. That is McLaren talk for "but Ben may perceive that any blow to Jlo's championship hunt might be viewed negatively and act accordingly completely on his own"

Honda decided that putting 4 bikes on the grid was all they needed to do to take points away. Well that and tell Sic that if he hits another Repsol bike he will be racing unicycles at clown college (he's already got the hair)

I am not sure how I feel about team orders. I see the advantages but I also see the disadvantages. The fact is, there is a time and place for team orders and while now might be the time and place for JL, I do not think it is the time for the sport in general. The win ratio has been dominated by 4 riders in the last 5 years, and this is killing motogp, another win for JL just follows suit to the other season and is probably killing MGP and making it too predictable and in fact boring, we need more potential winners and actual new winners.
For now I think team orders should be limited to "Do not take out your team mate or make unnecessary passes that could injure or hurt you team member and his title campaign"
