Well Stonsey, you did it to youself .... I would have said:"Mate, the championship this year is over for you , just enjoy yourself for the rest of the year, heal up and be ready for 2013.

But i can't say that now , can i ....

Fraud 27?, as far as i can see he never promised and not delivered, when he was not supposed to he did. The only fraud in motogp i can think of is an Italian who said he could fix a bike in 80 seconds and took 16 million euros a year to run around in 8th.

16 million euros and it was worth every cent, he's running in 8th and still the most popular rider out there, we have a battle close for the WC and Rossi is still the guy everyone talks about.

and get your facts right, Rossi didnt say he could fix the bike in 80 sec, JB did, this has been covered about 16 million times and you still dont know what you're talking about

the real fraud is Bridgestone developing a tire that suits the Jorgaha and not Honda or Ducati. There is a reason why Jorge has never finished less than 2nd this year, and it has nothing to do with talent.

I thought this was the guy who could ride around a bikes problems? Is this an urban myth?

You can't win em all, Casey. Just hop on the bike and give it 100% for the next three races and everyone will be happy even if the results don't go your way.

Gabbarini and crew certainly got a workout. Right now all they can do is chase their tails around the chatter,like Dani's side of the camp. Stoner is losing 2/10ths in the final sector trying to keep the front down and there is not much he can do about that.
Bottom line is,he is up against it tomorrow. Even if they claw back 2/10ths with the set up he will still be up against it to beat the Yamaha's.
A good old thunderstorm may be what HRC and Ducati need.
