yeah, shakey did well. who was the reigning two time champion that birdy binned as he was 'too old'

I never questioned any of decisions, just saying, he is a hateful man and what goes around comes back and slaps you in the ****. and with him, I hope it does

Dunno why Bird makes twitish decisions like this. With respect to Byrne, he isn't going to pedel that thing around any faster than Ellision.
If a 2times world champion says it chatters then a 2x british chapion isn't going to tell you any dffrent.

If I was Bird I'd be asking ART for another chassis (or RDPs chassis) to eliminate that there isnt a fundimental problem with wth one James has now i.e. The chassis is'nt a Friday afternoon job

What was wholly unethical was Carter asking Paul Bird if Ellison was being replaced. when Ellison and the Team in Portugal knew nothing about it.

I don't think they would of mentioned it on the BSB Broadcast if it wasn't general knowledge in the sport media.The fact its Headline news on here prove they were not speaking out of of line. At the end of the day its Paul Bird that made the news available to the media.
@Paddock whispers
Are those facts you're stating there.

all the bird knockers,probably jealous cos hes got a few quid,well he puts thousands and thousands into the sport maybe a mill +,as for ellison hes not that great,he could not even win in wss on a bike that laverty won over a dozen races on,so maybe he needs help, or another opinion,on handling issues,birdy knew this anyhow,everyone knows its a test year for the team in gp,so let them test to get better,fk if ellison was on stoners bike he would likely still be last,its all about developing for next year,let them get on with it, without all the backbiting and whingin

So is this going to be a case of bye bye James Ellison who is a good rider, and find someone else to take his seat leaving James with no ride for the rest of the season.

Mr Bird not a good idea,what will happen if you find someone else who comments on your bike,do you sack them as well if comment on the same problem, that would be a big waste of money, on the bike and going to MotoGp......

@ROBSPROCKET : Well are you or are you not a Paul Bird fan , what is your take on Ellison getting a knock to his confidence when told by Birdy that he is wrong about the chatter problems he is having , almost saying he is making it up , and getting his good mate Shaky to say there is no chatter , thus giving him the perfect excuse to remove Ellison without looking bad.
