Just wish Vale a speedy and full recovery...
Unbelievable the hate that people have for Rossi, Lorenzo, Stoner, etc... Persons that the ofenders don´t even know except from the TV. This really makes me sick... I understand that some personalities are disliked, but being happy because someone gets injured it is just outrageous. And then we ask "what the hell is going on with the world?".This type of behaviours is the response to me...
