F1 » 'Aggressive' Hamilton 'needs to calm down a bit'


Yeah - and like they should just, like, solve all this debt thing, like, tomorrow. And then Lewis could, like, probably go to Afghanistan and fix that, too. Like the man says - when a complete non-entity splurges blandishments that are totally ignored by the paddock, why don't you apply some critical judgement and ignore it too? Unless you want to read like a second-rate Sniff Petrol try putting this rubbish back to the author and ask them, like in this instance, what possible basis in truth or honesty did they have for saying it? It's utter, utter "Look at me!" cobblers and you should be grown-up enough, and have confidence in your site enough, to ignore it.

MotoGP » Rossi: 800cc MotoGP's biggest mistake for 15 years.


Yup, I agree totally (and what kind of fool would argue with Il Dottore?), but ultimately the eff-up can be laid at only one door - Honda's. They wanted a tiny bike that their new, brilliant tiny Spanish rider could rule with - uh-urgh. Denied. No other factories were militating for change in the way of Honda. Until they can see a good reason (read: opportunity for their rider to win the world title) they just ain't interested. In fact, if you look at every technical change that's fooked up great racing in the name of 'sport' (read marketing or sporting opportunity) there's only only mob pushing for that change - yup, you guessed it - Honda.

BSB » Ellison wins after controversial finish


What a complete idiot. Racing incidents happen, but that guy has proven himself completely untrustworthy on the track. As a racer you need to have faith in the rest of the field, faith not to act like a teenager on a first date, diving in d1ck first. Brookes has proved himself not mature enough to compete at the top level. He needs a ban to let both him and the series leaders time to cool off.

MotoGP » Stoner breaks Rossi’s home reign at Mugello.


Great race, with good news for JT at last. In other news, the BBC's commentary was utter, utter crap. Cox and Parrish missed the start Rossi got, ignored Melandri's belting pace until he passed Rossi, blathered on again about the lack of "ship to shore" radio and seem to exhaust their stock of technical insights with "...he's on the hard tyre - it'll come to him". And God only knows how many times that dolt Cox said "Across the stripe." Just don't get me started on their banal betting chat with added whistle. I mean - is this the best the BBC can do? Really? Total rubbish. A shambles. You just don't get it, do you?

MotoGP » French MotoGP - Race results.


Gripping stuff, even if was somewhat farcical in places. Unlike the Beeb's Charliex Cox and Steve Parrish, who was especially poor - even by their low standards - and farcical almost everywhere. Is there something wrong with giving us split times? Can't they see when a tyre's gone? Do we really need wet weather rules, "ship-to-shore" comms, etc etc explained to us every race? If the Beeb can find the energy and tech to give us updates on the red button screen about forthcoming programmes, perhaps they can give us live timing, too.

MotoGP » Honda awarded Moto2 engine contract.


Yes, that's what I thought. Blah-blah-blah, white noise, white noise, keyboard heroics. I'm pleased to see you've dropped your cod 'fear of copyright infringement' excuse. Isn't it because you actually feel a bit silly? Or are you being pressed to devote more time to your Roswell/Tower 7/Illuminati theory websites? Come on son, take off that tinfoil hat and tell us what we want to hear. Or do you fear an albino monk and a shadowy cabal of Bauer executives will hunt you down?
