cont.... I stopped being a die hard Rossi fan because of Rossi fans. When one rider has a malfunction on his motorcyle he's complaining and making excuses. When it happens to Rossi it's regarded as a freak accident and should not be held against him. If you have noticed the trend, the two riders that get the most flack are Hayden and Stoner. Why? One common denominator, they both beat Rossi and it drives his fans ape. If Rossi loses the championship it's because someone else had a better bike. When he wins while riding the best bike it's his natural talent. Gimmie a break already. I want Lorenzo to win this year just so I can see what excuses the ROssi fans will come up with.

surprised that Nicky never took a gamble on slicks as he's so got mad skills at forecasting. Yep its contract time as you can see desparados like Hayden pull the pin and people slate Tony. Marathon laps from the hardest working rider in Motogp Hayden...hold on aren't these engines ment to last...D'oh. Rossi must be thinking that he wasn't going to blow his world championship by thrashing round in the wet. If its like that in the race he'll do a "Hayden" and take what points he gains thru attrition
