Bang on westminster, since Rossi left despite all the talk that Jorge was the man they've gone from total domination to a poor second and would have been 3rd but for Danis injury arguably bombed bigger than Honda did when Rossi left... Already had to pack up the wsbk team.
If yam have half a chance this year then team orders it needs to be, besides whilst Spies is doing well he's miles off fighting for the title...

@ Cyclopathic
the passes on JL at Montegi were rough... I agree but not unfair! So the question is if JL saw that Rossi was up for it and knew his Title position and risk, why risk fighting back after the first few passes.. I will tell you why...because they are racers! and Jlo wanted just to beat Rossi for "props" and Rossi wanted to show otherwise.. P.S. He did! but it doesn't matter because JLo won the title with rounds to spare...but lost that battle and yes the risk was very much his to mitigate and he did not, he kept fighting (as racers should) and so did Rossi. I am not knocking JLo for giving it a go..just saying do not complain after! that battle was personal for both with JLo standing the most to lose..and he chose what he wanted to do! Good on him!

Because he is smarter rider than rossi, not as dumb as going for anything crazy and silly by keeping ego of winning multiple world titles in front always.

This article was written specifically to provoke response from the readers. Which is exactly what is has done. I'm an American, I was at Laguna this year. I'm a big Spies fan. That being said I don't think I'll engage in bickering going back on forth on this subject. This is purely "what ifs" and speculation. We'll let the race speak for itself.
