@ I agree, but factory's do not spend countless millions to come 4th and 5th.

How about Crutchlow, given a works Honda could give him the next boost to his already great performances i believe he could beat Danny as he is far more aggressive in making passes,which i feel Danny lacks, there you go job done.

Dani rarely comes in fourth or fifth.

Name one rider, other than Stoner, who has gone from satelite machinery to title contender just by jumping on a factory ride. As well as Crutchlow has been performing he is still not a title contender and I highly doubt a full on works bike will change that.

@CRT:

You do not seem to have a logical answer to my question, and skirt around it with Danny this Danny that, always a perennial contender, never the realization that he has been propped up by Spanish money.

Why has he never been a Moto gp champion if he is so good.

So your logical answer to replace a race winning rider is throw an unproven on the bike? That's not logic, that's insanity.

Are you claiming he's only had success because of Spanish money?

Crutchlow can barely hold onto Dovi, and Dovi only finished ahead of Dani because of injuries which caused him to miss a few races races. But you somehow think it's logical to replace Dani with Cal?

CRT:

Winner maybe, but no consistency = no champion, how do you prove the unproven... that's right, you try them out, but Cal has already proven he is worthy of a factory ride so daft point answered.

To answer another daft point, Spanish Repsol money is what is keeping his ride at Honda, otherwise he would be out on his ear.

You don't boot out a proven race winner for unkown variable. Period.

You have no facts to base your assumption that Dani is still the the HRC squad due to Repsol money.

If you think Cal is faster than Dani there is no point in the discussion going any further, as Cal isn't fast enough to sniff Dani's fumes.

Cal may have proven he is worthy of a factory ride, but not even close to proving he should replace Stoner,, Jorge or Dani. Spies proved he was more worthy of a factory ride than Cal and he would have had no business replacing one of the three. To think Cal is, is pure ignorance or blind patriotism.

" You don't boot out a proven race winner for unkown variable. Period "

You do if year after year they do not become champion
PERIOD.

" Cal isn't fast enough to sniff Dani's fumes. "

I seem to recall Cal sniffing till he choked, then blew away your hero into clean fresh Danny free air the last race.

" blind patriotism "
But you seem blind to your own blind patriotism.

One race and you think Cal is better than Dani? LMFAO

I have no dog in this fight, patriotism doesn't even come into play with me regarding riders and who they ride for. The fact is Cal is not even on the same level as Dani, and putting him on a factory bike will not change that. Cal is barely staying ahead of Dovi, and Dovi didn't have anything for Dani while riding the same machine.

Keep on believing what you type, and you will constatnly be reminded you're wrong.

My interest with you has now resurfaced just so I can read the next bit of comedy you are going to throw out.

" patriotism doesn't even come into play with me "

No patriotism Ok, fan boy then yes.

" One race and you think Cal is better than Dani LMFAO "

He was beating your hero on a SATELLITE, yes SATELLITE bike against a full WORKS Honda, that's no laughing matter.

" so I can read the next bit of comedy you are going to throw out. "

The next thing to be thrown out will be Old Danny boy, and since you like comedy, you should also enjoy good farce too, here is a cracker, Casey won in his first season on the Honda and Danny after all these years being at Honda still has not, farcical indeed.

I have never seen one poster be wrong so many times before.

I am not a fanboy of Dani's, far from it actually. I respect him as a racer however, I still hold a small grudge from when he took out Hayden in 2006.

Now had you said Cal should replace Spies or Hayden for a factory seat I would agree with you, as the current potential for Cal exceeds both of those riders (Spies is still on the table, he either turns it around quickly or off he goes).

The bottom line is there is no one currently on the grid to replace Dani, including your "hero" Cal.

Keep the jokes rolling, you're helping me kill the time.

" I am not a fanboy of Dani's "

Course not, you just defend his failure with every breath you in your body , no fan boy then. ( S****** )

why can Cal not be considered by Honda, they will want someone who is willing to fight and overtake unlike your early braking non passing non Moto gp champ, he is not tied to Yamaha you know, and your non fan boy fantasy Danny will be history any way, as Marc marquez will finish the job when he comes to Moto gp, what a team Cal and Marc there now job done.

Danny's Moto gp legacy = zilch
