Couldn't find the none of the above button....

Back to yamaha we go.

As an Aussie i guess it's not Rossi or Lorenzo i dislike, just the stupid flamboyance they both bring to a race. Pre-preped celebrations in case they win? Makes me want to punch them in the face. Take this Aussie swimmer, Magnussen, in interviews used to refer to himself in the third person, worse, he called himself the missile!
I can't stand that ****.
I miss Simonceli, that was pure, talent, drive aggresion and desire to win, with none of the stupid showiness Lorenzo and Rossi can't help but bring.
Ducati, Yamaha, whatever, i'll finish by saying after all the hoopla, should Rossi return to Yamaha.... He'd better return to his winning ways or his rep, his 7 titles and his history will be put down to lack of competition. He will become a laughing stock... if he doesn't win

Rossi should go back to Yamaha.

Firstly, he already have all the money he may need in seven lifetime, so it really is money doesn't matter.

Secondly, Lorenzo has said he has no objection and that he prefer stronger team mate than a joke like Spies. (Well maybe Spies is only on his bad luck year).

That good attitude from Lorenzo (if proven in the field next year) will also help Rossi fans to like Lorenzo, and make it easier for Lorenzo to become "the next big thing" in MotoGP.

Thirdly, One or two more championship is not really important, but to race upfront will make Vale much happier. And the fans, millions of them, will also be much happier. We will get to see great battles like Catalunya 2009 and Laguna Seca 2008!

Enjoy Life!

Obviously the Rossi-Ducati combination is not working, and I assume a big part is due to the bike. So, he has the option to stay and not be able to win and retire with a big frustration, not being able to compete with the best for the 3 last years of his career. Or move to a factory bike and show he still has it and eventually win some.
I think his choice should be obvious.

What I think might make it irresistible for VR to move back to Yamaha is Ezpeleta's pitch to him that he could be the saviour of MotoGP. The global economy is a wreck, race attendances are falling, top riders are leaving the series... I believe CE will have worked hard behind the scenes to encourage this deal to happen (remember his 'Rossi will be on a competitive bike next year' comment from way back?) and I think that this notion of one rider miraculously reviving MotoGP is exactly the kind of spin that will appeal to Vale. And as far as Dorna are concerned (i.e. in terms of marketing the product of MotoGP to TV channels), there's probably quite some truth in it too.

Anyone heard the saying "You made your bed, now lay in it"?
This is a guy who left Yamaha because they chose to bring on a second talented rider, and mr spoilt bratt threw his toys out of the pram. Both him and Burgess thinking they were some kind of gods jumped ship to Ducati to prove to Casey and the world there was nothing wrong with the bike that two super humans couldn't fix. Now the little scroat wants a yahama again because he realises he can't do what Casey Stoner could do. The Ducati was always a bus, but Stoner won on it because he nailed that vicious fast motor and risked all. So how are the two 'gods' improving the bike? They want gentle power! Buy a scooter boys - nice gentle power delivery. Bottom line is: If Rossi is the best of all time as he and many people seem to think, ride that Ducati how it was meant to be rode - prove you can beat anyone on anything!

And lets face it, Jorge is towing the corporate line saying he has no objections to Rossi returning. No sharing i
