@ southerner No Bridgestone because they're using Vale for marketing and "pre-Rossi" Ducati because now Rossi is on a Ducati? Jesus, you're sad..

It's a shame that grown folks cannot act like adults. Rossi has given so much to this sport, can he help it if his management team are brilliant in terms of branding, marketing and helping create "Rossi World" at the same time proven time in, time out that he is one of the greatest off all time. like Muhammad Ali, Tiger woods etc... sit back and enjoy the season no matter how it turns out...One question to all the haters "Can you ride a gp bike to it's max" if not hold your tongue, because you have no right to criticize.I know I am going to get allot of flack for this posting but I for one am tired of hearing the bashing in a derogatory manner no matter what he is still getting paid numbers you only wish for!
