Where were you mister spick and span when the sh*t hit the fan.
This sh*t fight was started by die hard Rossi fans if I remember correctly.
Unlike the real Caesar Rossi came he saw but unfortunately for him he not only failed to conquer he has written himself into history for the best and worst reasons, I guess it comes down to which reason you think is closer to the truth as they both are true.

2 years of development. Oh year, we see Ducati's new engines and new frame every time they get on track , right.

Didnt you read the article where it was said the reason they could get the updates cuz the development were frozen for some reason.(Excuse,yea from Ducati tho).
If the facts werent right and if Rossi was the problem,Ducati would have come out with loads of blame work, wouldnt they?
New Engine with narrow angle, yea still waiting on that

Ahh but for the good old days. I fondly remember the days before the Internet when Aussies were thought of as great sportsmen by many other nations. Now since the Internet and keyboard fools we are seen as a bunch of poor losers with a nasty streak, so thanks for that you sad Aussie keyboard *****s.

Signed an older true Aussie.

today is great day for you in my "books"
you are now first yellow boy in the list, with yours funny comments...

all waht Rossi shows on Duc, is very poor performance
its doesnt matter, thats Caseys riding skills are far, far better than Rossi. Rossi spend last year on his track to learn rear wheel stearing as Nicky and Casey and his said, it to complicated for him. But for you Dave it is to complicated to understand.
Rossi is still better showman. But, I watch for racing, not for show.

If you want to compare (thats no topic here), compare Valencia test 2010.

Pedi wasntfaster 2012 as Casey, Casey has not enough motivation after his annoucment. I understand it. He could decide end of 2012 or 2013. Thats would be better for him.

@Daniel Kunkie
Your comment sounds like you bumped your head. If Rossi is the master of Skill, Set-up, Cornering etc and RAIN is the equalizer then how to you explain the last two years?

Rossi is good, no doubt about that and yes, in the top ten but as the skill level of other riders has grown his has fallen so, no, Rossi (without WC) ranks in the bottom part of the top ten. Where I dont know, but know many riders in front of him

A bit silly comments on here if you ask me...

Keyboard warriors reading articles on the net, papers, motorcycle magazines... You all seem to know what is going on inside the boxes of the riders, how negotiatiions go, how motogp politics go, how to devellop a bike, why stoner is a supernatural talent on a bike, why rossi can't ride a bike,...

You guys are all geniuses!!!!

Thanks for the nice reads!

@ slowpoke
It appears that you have answered your own question there. Judging recent performances I'd say that Rossi has neither. Casey has proven in the past that the ducati was far from inferior and as for talent, well I'm sure, perhaps he misplaced his talent. Maybe Super Wrench could look around a while for IT. Should ONLY take about 80 seconds, or so he reckons...JB...FADE AWAY....

Airing views, i totally agree! But posting hatred comments towards the riders, people who put on posts and views... A bit silly don't you think?

Nothing wrong with having an opinion, but outing personal frustrations... Don't feel right to me...

But good luck to you all in the future... And may your brains take control over your actions...
