"That said, Dovi did really well, imo, better than Cal, and its only the Brits who will see Cal's performance over Dovi's"

Dovi has been in MotoGP ALOT longer than Cal! This is only Cal's 2nd year. Yes Dovi overall did a bit better than Cal, but so he should, he's had a lot more experience in the class! He had a Repsol Honda and didn't impress much did he?

"Hayden deserved to be in the top 10 ahead of Rossi. He outqualified Rossi and rode the Ducati so hard he would wear the tires out and his effort led to his injury which stopped him beating Rossi in the championship."

Ermmm this is a topic about Cal Crutchlow! Ducati? Hayden? Rossi? LOL!

Fanboys!

In my first post I was merely intimating that I felt Dovi deserved to be 4th and ahead of Cal in the poll. If there is an agenda aside from the actual poll results then maybe there would be a temptation to put Rossi 4th to stir up debate.

I am expecting Cal to be 4th but I also said that I have a "bad feeling" that something else could be influencing the outcome. I guess Rossi missing the top ten will stir up enough debate anyway.

Calm down, calm down. *scouse accent*

Dovi and Cal performed about even, in my eyes. Cal is a comparative noob, but both performed excellently. Considering they were both on satellites it could be argued they should both be in the top three.

So If Dovi was voted one place less than Cal I'm not going to lose any sleep.

Good luck next year to Dovi. He's going to need it.

Sorry, but there is no way a case can be made for Cal to be top 3, and no way he should be above Dovizioso. Dovizioso got 6 podiums on the same bike. Nuff said.

Cal mauled Dovi 13-5 in qualifying which is impressive for only his 2nd year. No doubt that garnered him a lot of high scores.

yet Cal has one more year than Dovi on the same style of bike and he arguably got faster after Dovi signed for Ducati (I could argue). Cal is fast, but fast does not win races, and for a guy who was only on a Yam for one year and for whom was known to be leaving Yam after mid year, Dovi did a good job keeping that bike going.

When Cal stops running in to people's rear wheels, and stops crashing he will probably add 80-90 points to his end year tally, but hes still pushing to hard for speed when he needs to take a page from Dovi and be more deliberate about his strategy and attacks.

Oops Young Mr Crutchlow is getting upset with comments on this one judging by his tweets!

If I were a Moto GP Rider id be laughing at the debate on here rather than getting upset lol
