Why hate on any rider. If they aren't your favorite why hate?

To the Southerner are you hating on Rossi because he has done better on the Ducati than Hayden? Two 2nd places and one 3rd in 2 years vs Three 3rd places in 4 years.

@ Rob,I was planning to be out of this ,but I'm absorbed. No,I don't hate Rossi. Never met him, but I do abhor his association and abject failure within Ducati.
I was one of a handfull that decried his signing in the first place. All he had to do was accept that Lorenzo was and is the real deal. Pride came before the fall. Stoner got shafted all round. Credit to Suppo,Tardozzi and Preziosi for sticking with him.Not to mention Gabbarini and crew. Del Torchio is clueless. He knows what makes money turn,but don't know what a game dog is if it bit his ass.
Ducati appear to be older and wiser now.
Testing is a case in point.
Scurry away to Mugello/Misano,rather than go head to head with HRC and Yamaha as opportunity avails itself.
Capirossi always took it on the chin as did Stoner and Hayden.
Ducati have been the big losers in terms of the signing not Rossi.Post Mortem Rossi 2011/12.

Hahaha....Some of you are all keen to go to a Stoner post and say negative things about him, yet when someone comes and does the same in a Rossi thread you all cry like a bunch of babies....Like you favourite you all need to man up.

Its simple, every sportman has a peak and I think rossi might be past his best, hes won 7 moto gp titles and I bet he will still be in for a running at the title next year, the mans a legend full stop.......
