Laterrus: Rossi Fanboy #1: I swear, what more does Rossi have to do to earn the respect of these critics? The dude is old by MotoGP standards and is STILL the top Yamaha in the standings and is STILL fast on race days! He has one bad practice session and BOOM, he's done for forever according to most posters.
What are you taking about? most comments here are sympathetic towards Rossi, no one has said he's 'done forever' or even suggested he may not do well on Sunday. Who are you refering to??

Crazy Joe can trouble MM. What? Do you guys even watch the session or just look at the times and frame judgment from them. Iannone is doing a good job but on his best lap he towed Pedrosa all the way who was also on his best lap. MM is untouchable with that Honda combination. There are only three riders on the grid who can potentially trouble him. 1 has gotten closest on the opener but has fallen since, the other has had multiple brain explosions already and doesn't look bothered at times and the last one who has the best chance being on equal machinery cannot take the measure of MM because he's too good. So ladies and gentleman, win number 5 coming for MM. Only a formality if its a dry race, a wet race would add drama but I doubt outcome will change.
