@ VicariousR1 I see where you're going with that Rossi slight, but it isn't a fair statement by any means. Rossi took the risk (..and was paid good money for he ALWAYS is), and Ducati couldn't bring to the table what he wanted. He fulfilled his contractual obligations and left. He has a few years left in GP. At his age, staying on that Ducati for another 2 years would have ensured that he never won another race again. A champion is used to winning and podium finishes, and the Ducati relegates champions to mediocrity. Crutchlow isn't a champion (and he likely never will be), so his situation differs greatly from Rossi's. I can guarantee you that Crutchlow would jump from Ducati to a Factory Yamaha or Honda in a heartbeat given the opportunity. He'll take that money and run!
