OK, lets put this Anti Rossi thing to bed once and for all.

Rossi is the GOAT but not the GOAT of racing, let me explain.
When it comes to the overall package, PR, wins, fights, enemies, fans etc, Rossi is the GOAT.

When it comes to straight racing, he is and has always been just a good racer. His competitors in the early years were NOT at his level and now he is NOT at THEIR level.

Anyone who thinks different ask yourself WHY was Yamaha happy to let him go, if he had the race GOAT status they would have kept him.

Why did YAMAHA PR want him back, because they know he is not at the same level in racing BUT he still packs a punch when it comes to PR, if anyone can work a room its Rossi.

heck, his comments about Bautista is really so no-one asked him why he hasnt won a race yet.

He is on record for saying MM and JL incident a racing incident but Bautistia crash that didn't even involve him is a big thing.

Like someone else has said - this is racing so stop the moaning

@rooshooter
You're out of topic mate, but. Didn't Rossi beat Pedrosa, Lorenzo, Stoner in 2008, 2009? At age 29, 30. And i think it wasnt his early years....sow about what levels r u talking about? And what PR, yamaha want Rossi back, cause he was competitive on M1, if there will not be good results i think he will be out after season 2014. But i believe he can adopt on a bike and will have good results.

What is this 'hype' the haters keep on about. Tiresome and not true. The only rider to predict results at the moment is possibly Cal, probably to keep himself in the Yamaha Factory's thoughts for next year.
Rossi shows just the opposite. Besides, even when he draws attention to Alvaro, he is diplomatic.

Still, I suppose it maintains the 7 to 3 haters to supporters ratio I mentioned recently.

You seem to be confused, saying upside down??
Do you mean to say

"His competitors in the early years were NOT at THEIR level and now he is NOT at HIS level"

i cannot believe some people on here are defending Bautistas actions, saying this is just racing lol

the guy has been taking people out since 2011 and every single time its been at the start of the race.

1)Valencia 2011 (took out rossi and hayden

2)2012 he took out lorenzo but i forgot what track

3)2012 he took out pedro

4)2013 mugello took out rossi and almost did the same thing again yesterday.

all of these have taken place at the start of the race's so clearly this is where he has a problem keeping a cool head. its not just the problem of it being dangerous but also makes the race not as entertaining buy taking out one of the front runners.
