Holy ****, there are some venomous Rossi haters out today. Yes he took a risk going to B-stones, yes he's having problems using the 'stones on the Yamaha in these cool conditions. It's not a flat out sign that his career is over and he's completely lost his ability to ride like few others in the world can. Take your ignorant negativity elsewhere if you can't add anything to these comment boards besides, "Oh what a mistake from Rossi to switch to Bridgestone...Rossi should retire from motogp...". How stupid are you???

I was wondering how long for the rossi fans to start making excuses. If you actually watched the practice, you would know that Rossi didn't even realise that pedrosa had hit him. A mere glance over his shoulder and he just carried straight on. You would also know that HRC are now running with last years bike as they aren't happy with the 2008 model. So why can't JT be up there with the likes of Rossi? As its his first season, I think he's doing a hell of a job. Can't wait for Sunday. I'll log on here after the race and read the excuses that rossi fans are making again. As I'll do all season long probably.
