@nikisan Gibernau was clear ahead, and had well and truly committed to his line and weight transfer before Rossi barged in. Rossi used Gibernau's bike as a berm. Based on your logic, it was Lorenzo's fault that he "took out" Alvaro in Assen last year, and it was Hayden's fault that he "took out" Pedrosa at Estoril.

Was it exciting? yes. It was a great battle. But it was a dangerous move, and therefore wasn't a clean pass. These things happen in the heat of the moment, but I don't think they should be celebrated as a mark of genius. Rossi's desire to win is great, but he has made a few dodgy moves over the years. In other cases, he's pulled off some great moments. In my opinion, this wasn't one of them.
