The reason ALL sports (including GP racing) went backwards in the last 3 to 4 years is very simple it was a thing called the GFC and when that gets better which I think it is slowly, all sport (including GP racing)will be back where it was,unfortunatly people like you have been talking this rubbish since GP started,when Ago,Hailwood,Sheens,Roberts etc,etc,retired the same old crap was said GP is finished, but guess what it is still here and after rossi's,stoner's,lorenzo's etc, your time and mine it will still be going trust me.So instead of talking doom and gloom try saying something positive.rossi might be the only rider you follow but the rest of us genuine GP fans support all riders, that's why the sport has survived not because of one rider.

@McLarenP Thats past(2010)its 2012 now

Not anymore,now that the myth has been busted .The motogp fans have moved on,except for a very few of them still hanging on.Notice that post 2011 there are more stoner & lorenzo fanboys than rossi,More diagrees to comments depecting positive comments about rossi.Oh! & since when did stoner even have fans prior to 2011?Sure they were not born a year ago?They are none other than EX-Rossi fans who have now jumped ships once the truth is out,just the way many Biaggi fans jumped to Rossi when he got beaten & like spanish Sete fans to Dani & then to lorenzo who would further jump to Marquez,then Vinales & so on.Its a routine cycle.As they say "FAME IS FICKLE,TALENT IS FOREVER".Rossi is not the same marketing superstar he was,motogp will not rely on him anymore ,sponsers dont care for a midpack ex 9times WC,now without marlboro & others soon to leave when contract expiers,however his passion & talent lives forever.

Rossi's retirement will not affect this sport,but will certainly put a very few surviving blind rossi fans like yourself into depression.MotoGp has been very boring post 2006,compared to WSBK,BSB, on.But that hasnt stopped motogp from growing worldwide fanbase.MotoGp viewership has increased massively over the years,courtesy of penetration to asian markets.U.S & Europe is badly hit by economic downturn & thet are not the most profitable market for motorcycles anymore.MotoGp was hit by similar problems befoe back in 60s,then late 70s oil crisis in the U.S & has successfully survived,& it will survive without ROSSI.It was MotoGp that made ROSSI,not the other way round.

And if you want a real show
then you let race the Moto1
who had +/- the same times
as the MotoGP
against each other
say for abouth 10 laps
and see who can get the victory?!
Well then you have a spectacle
like in a Roman Arena!
That must be enough for the show, I think ...

Well said.

Dornas issue, is that it is still in denial where the future of MotoGP is, not in Europe. Follow the money, real money, not economies where they borrow more than they earn.

It's great to see someone else that looks at the big picture and is not a doom and gloom merchant,you are right about the Asian region,the following of motorsports in rhe region is unreal, and when the U.S and Europe get back to normal just emagine it will be great for GP.and on rossi fans (i am a stoner fan) what was dished out to lorenzo and his fans in 2009/10 was the most disgusting rubbish I have seen in 50 years of following GP and the same ones are now doing the same to stoner fans but not at the same level they all know who they are and they should hang their heads in shame,also they should follow some other sport because they are not GP fans, there is a name for them but I cannot use it on here or I would be barred forever.
