I hate to say it but in some ways I hope he does decide to retire. I cannot imagine the personal turmoil Valentino must be in and if He can mentally get to a place where he can compete at the top still then fantastic. I don't want him to become a shadow of what he is because he can't get his head straight.

I'm really concerned about the quality of the last MotoGP race this year, with Marco gone, Colin injured and out, Gresini possibly not taking part and the general gloom resulting from Marco's death, I am not sure whether the race will be worth starting. I think that all the MotoGP riders should ride in Moto2 and have 2 races per meeting like in WSBK.

Gresini Team to attend Valencia GP

The Italian team will assemble its usual box at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Valencia, and will display the bike holding number 58 in tribute to rider Marco Simoncelli. The team has yet to decide if Hiroshi Aoyama and the Moto2 riders will compete in the final GP of the season.

I think enough bagging Rossi, he's had a tough year and what happened with Marco is something no one should have to go through.
Rossi has been a great ambassador for Moto GP and has plenty of years left so lets support him.

And yes i had been giving Rossi sh1t all season but i learned a lesson last Sunday..
