Crutchlows 4th position is well deserved. Dovi got more podiums in 2012 but Cal is more of a scrapper and interesting to watch and thats what we all want to see. In comparison to the processions provided by the three girls up front all season with wishy washy overtakes, crutchlow was a revelation.

It's near-impossible to say who was best out of the Tech 3 boys all things counted for I reckon. But I do think that Dovi's preformances in previous seasons explains why he's behind Cal. It's hard to see him as an exciting future prospect really, considering he's had the chance on a factory Honda but failed to really challenge for glory. Given where Dovi came from, I can definitely understand the critics that say Cal should have got the Ducati ride rather than him - but having said that, I think they both have a season to be mighty proud of behind them!

Sorry Dave, but your missing the point of this poll entirely. Its not just about championship position. Its about on the whole with all things considered.

Cal has been faster than Rossi in probably every single race weekend.

Rossi, along with Spies, has been the biggest dissapointment of this year. He, his team, his fans, Ducati and just about everyone else expected him to at least get close to what Stoner did. And at the very least they expected him to beat Hayden by much more than he did.

Thats why Rossi does not deserve to make the top 10.

By hey, we all know how the minds of some Rossi fans work on here. Of course they will all be giving Rossi a 10 and Stoner a 1, so it may even be Stoner out of the top 10 haha!

Well Cal and Dovi are only 0.01 apart on this poll, so id say thats pretty much spot on and could have gone either way.

4th/5th is exactly where they are at the moment, right behind the top 3.

Great seasons by both of them on satellite bikes.

I do think that the might of the Rossi fans wont let him down and as i have a feeling it may be Rossi up next. You never know when it comes to Rossi fans.

If Rossi is out of the top ten, then i honestly applaud Rossi fans for at least being true to themselves.

But if Rossi is up next, then i want to know how Dave hacked into this site to rig the results.
