Big blue tractor. How do you know hoe good JR is. Can you push the blade as hard as him. No one has been able to. JR is probably better than most in MotoGP and he deserves a proper shot at it. We all all mince and moan when the top teams put a poo rider on. Let's back a rider who deserves a go at it.

Rea's been a constant dander to himself and every other rider on the same part of the track as him all year. I'm amazed he hasn't been suspended yet. How good will it look if he makes one of his usual kamakazi manouvres and knocks of Dani or Jorge ruining the championship? He doesn't deserve a sopt in WSBK let alone MotoGP.

I think HRC missed a trick here. I will admit that Rea is a very good rider but why not give the bike to marquez. He already has his motogp contract in the bag so why bother, apart from pride, winning the moto2 championship? He can skip 2 races and only be 2 points behind. the sooner he starts racing the honda the sooner he will start to win races. Finally, whats the point in racing for gresini, he won't win anything there. Unfortunately Rea has been overlooked, would you sack marquez or pedrosa to make way for johnny?
