'Little Man's Disease' maybe?

I suppose Rossi could have took the easy way out & stepped down to WSB.
But that would have been a cowards way out, who would do such a thing, oh hang on a minute..........

Lets face it Biaggi is right who else would get taken back into the championship winning team after 2 crap years in the wilderness just riding round in mid pack, only Rossi, so yeah he is very very lucky that Yamaha took him back coz if Ben Spies had had a good season and Yamaha had kept him then there would of been nowhere for Rossi to go....

I'll happily stick with Whit and Burnicle. Biaggi would never have had to clarify this if he wasn't working for Italian TV as a presenter...fact is this was a negative comment, maybe a bit bitter that unlike Biaggi...Rossi hadn't burnt all of his bridges with previous teams he was with so managed to get back on something competitive. Biaggi has never had Rossi's fan base in Italy or anywhere else in the world. He has to be nice now otherwise the Italian public won't put up with him on their screens.
Good rider? Yes Decent person? Well.... Liked? By some but even those that like him will admit that he can be a bit of a d1ck at times.

I think it would have to be a compliment to WSB champion biaggi if rossi were to start winning again, you would have to sit back and think "I use to win races against that guy"

Hard to argue with what Max said and there's no denying that two lack lustre seasons hardly earned him a ride back n the M1.
Even the race department weren't chasing Rossi, luckiy the marketing deparment threw him a lifeline and wih Ezpeletas comments even before mid season last year, you don't need to be Einstein to realise that maybe someone who was more deserving has missed their chance... once again.

valentino rossi is the greatest rider off all time, Biaggi is bitter for being around at the same time as valentino as he might have been a motogp world champion. If you want to see the true max biaggi take a look at the time he elbowed valentino off the track which was at best an attempt to injure him.
I am bored of max biaggi!!!!!
