Just keeps digging his own grave...

“My package is good,” agreed Crutchlow. “But it's not this year's latest package. My package is last year's. It's definitely good. I've said that.”

its not what you've said... it how you say it... and that youjust keep on saying it... keep you mouth shut and RIDE!!!

"Fifth, fourth and fifth" that's like second, first, second...

Considering the competition... be happy with that your never gona do any better unless there's a crash, or rain, even then....

should-a signd the two year deal.... as they say... high insight is 20 20

"Rossi left Yamaha because his nose was put out of joint by his team mate beating him. I don't recall the same level of near hatred being leveled at him for doing what he thought was best for his career "

There is a HUGE difference... Rossi (like him or hate him) has won ALOT of world championships in this class. Cal hasn't come close to winning a race yet. Therefore Rossi demands more leverage (and rightly so!). I have always supported Cal in MotoGP and will continue to do so, but the position he is in now is purely down to what HE has said in the media. His mouth has surpassed him. No?

What this whole story really shows is how pointless it is being on a CRT bike.
Out of the two Espargaro brothers i would think that Pol still has the most to prove.
It would seem that a CRT ride is not a good way to move forward in Motogp, and Crutchlow is sensible to do anything he can to avoid ending up on one (either with a Yamaha-les tech 3 or anyone else).

I guess it's official, Realist has no life, straight from the horses own mouth.

I am sure the people telling him to shut up really care about him not stepping on too many eggs, but really, there isn't much to talk about in MotoGp, so the commentators and promoters should be happy for this drama.

It's funny, I watched the interviews expecting Cal to bad mouth his employer or the kit he was on and all he said were positive things and why he only signed for 1 year (manufacturer agreement w/ Yamaha). Some how I believe the sentiment in this forum about this particular subject to be completely baseless.

Cal must have been an Aussie in a former life. He whines as much as Casey Moaner or Ant West. Some rider's should not be allowed to talk to the press without a statement pre-authorised by someone with a brain.

He rides great. Shut up and ride I say.
