@Poddy AussieNSW may have a point but its an obvious one, PR pressure is nothing new in any high profile sport and certainly was in full effect in bike GP racing long before rossi came along. As for the current situation in MPG, as bad as it could be viewed, its not any of the riders faults. I don't believe that rossi's PR alone has more control over this sport than dorna, the view that they appear to play up to it is simply because, rightly or wrongly, it suits them to do so right now. We cant ignore the fact that dorna and motogp is a business, they dont exist solely to give us something to do on a Sunday afternoon. there is no conspiracy, just greedy business men feathering their own nests.
