Last time I watched a race was to see who finished where, from 1st to last and to watch those learning and in-experienced battle for any position against those with more experience. True fans of which Im one, will happily watch Thundersport or Bemsie races actually at the track aswell as BSB support races of which I once saw a certain CS on a gp125, CC on an r6 in the r6 cup. I would give a whole lot to ''finish 4th'' and have the utmost respect for any of the fella's that put their lives on the line to entertain the fickle fans that dride their efforts.....just sayin like..

Without Rossi motogp might not be very entertaining. I think most of you will agree with me on this. First of all forget about the gap between 1 and 4th and 3rd and 4th. We all were got entertained in the last few laps of the race due to Rossi. May be the chances of winning this year title is slim. Why most of the motogp fans like Rossi is due to his fighting capabilities and his cool attitude. I never seen his outburst on anyone. I always cheer for him despite he wins or not. I am hoping for him to win couple of races before the season ends. He is legend, nothing to prove. GOAT..go..go..46

" and have the utmost respect for any of the fella's that put their lives on the line to entertain the fickle fans that dride their efforts.....just sayin like.. "

Rossi and Dorna brought "entertainment" to MotoGP to generate revenue and profit for themselves.

Before that, Doohan and Honda couldn't give two hoots if the stands were empty, as long as they were crushing everyone else on the track.

Deary me..
the bitter #27ers are out again..moaning about the state of racing..pushing their bottom lips around in wheelbarrows.

"Rossi ripped the sport off..rather watch Casey circulating on his own from the empty stands chewing on my soggy sarnies..he doesn't deserve respect for providing racing entertainment on the way to 4th..who cares who finishes 4th..?"

So..did you all stop watching 2009 and 2010?
What about last year?..or does finishing 3rd - while getting slapped by a team mate who's won now't - change everything?

can you explain exactly what kind of interesting things you saw from the top3 in all races of this season? You only saw boring three man parade in most races.... Last two seasons were even worse and things are little exciting at front this year only because MM is consistently at the front. Things up the front in the leading group got interesting only when Rossi cracked into top3 in race.

"who cares to see about who finishes 4th" by the way we real fans care to see who finished 4th because its from where the most exciting moments of the race came from....

You watch the sport for entertainment and in last Indy race who gave you that fun and thrill finishing?

Please don't act like you invest money for them to race... you just pay to watch them race and who made it worth for what you pay? You can't say watching JL and DP race is worth for what you pay.

Rossi recently told Gazzetta dello Sport that riding the Yamaha again felt like he'd 'never been away.
Some may say... Pity his results show different, but we have to remember the 3 Alliens have lifted the bar beyond Rossi reach, it's not age,it's skill levels.

Rossi has great skill but the others are now showing greater all round performance which is what it is all about, it is only going to get harder for him

Bender, you funny fella, maybe your ambition outweighs your talent with your now it's his age that is stopping him from winning excuse , guess that's more logical then set-up, bike, height, they don't like me, they won't listen to me and all the other excuses that he and his fans have used.

Actually it would take over 80 secs to spell out the excuses used.

Why not accept he is a great rider but the leaders are better, just a thought.

Cheers and beers and I'll still respect you in the morning sweetheart :-)

Valentino made up 5 places, which is more than any of them! If he could only get to grips with the qualifying, he would be battling for first place most weeks!! Good stuff though, great racing which is what we want to see!
