@ Roman. The MGP world is a different animal altogether to when Elias won (just) way back in '06, and galaxies away from when Rossi was a (so-called as the bike was Factory) Satellite rookie. Your 'proof' in Elias is totally irrelevant to today. The thing is, fans like yourself don't seem to care if their hero wins with no real depth of competition, just so long as he does win and they get to crow about it. The fact that the achievement is devalued hugely because most of the field haven't a genuine chance in hell against the guy (due to the advantages he has) doesn't seem to register or matter. We seem to live in a world where it is now seen as acceptable by many to cheat & use any means to win - fans no longer seem to care if a guy truly EARNS his victory against strong rivals, and true SPORT and COMPETITION aren't DEMANDED by foolish, small-minded and short-sighted fans it seems. Shame.
