MotoGP » Italian TV ambush Marquez at home


geoffrey.spears.52:
R1LYS1: Now they should just DQ Rossi on basis of his fan's.
No, but Rossi should come forward and accept responsibility for his deliberate endangerment of MM on track and defuse the more irrational of his supporters before more violence occurs and things escalate beyond anyone's control. Valencia will be a powder keg crowded with supporters on both sides - without Rossi stepping up and accepting his responsibility, it would take very little to cause Valencia to erupt.
They should both accept their responsibility and make a joint statement. A reconciliation is the only way forward to make Valencia safe. Or they could ban all fans from the race.

MotoGP » Italian TV ambush Marquez at home


geoffrey.spears.52: They entered Marquez's property uninvited and unannounced and proceeded to break bottles, brandish sex toys and assault Marc and his family. That's the behavior of criminals not reputable reporters doing their jobs. They broke many laws in the process and are lucky that only their cameras were broken in response. The post invasion photo from the home invaders is on Marco dot com and they don't appear to be injured.
There are two sides to every story and then there is the truth. I bet that the TV people were physically attacked first and their cameras were taken. Going into the house was to retrieve their property.

MotoGP » Italian TV ambush Marquez at home


geoffrey.spears.52: Rossi committed a violation and Marquez was the victim of that violation. A penalty was imposed against Rossi and was confirmed upon appeal. No penalty was imposed upon Marquez and Marquez gained zero points and a DNF in Sepang while the violator finished on the podium and received 16 points. There is no question that Rossi is the violator in this situation. It's unconscionable to expect a victim to share the responsibility for the violation with the violator, but to have them both make seperate statements calling for calm form their respective fan bases would be very useful in defusing tensions.
When Rossi's appeal works neither of them will have been penalized. Everything else is just a matter of opinion. If they don't declare a truce then don't expect the situation to be less toxic.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty


AyrtonSenna:
Mark :
was this response made when people thought that Rossi kicked MM?
Does it matter Mark? I would say Smith and the other riders are entitled to their view of the incident and are better equipped than you and I. Good on you Bradders. If their response is based on an incorrect assumption then it does matter. The other riders are just as split about this as the people commenting here.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty


Garcia:
Insidejob: Bradley Smith, “I saw the incident, and I don’t agree with it. It’s not something that should be allowed in MotoGP. It’s not a normal incident. knocking another rider down, and I have to follow what the Race Direction decided to do. We are all here to race and do the best possible. What Marquez decided to do against Valentino is up to him. We are 24 riders on the grid and we are allowed to do exactly what we want, even if we are not fighting for the championship.”
Smith is one of the few who always talks sense, and has the balls to speak the truth even riding for Yamaha. I have massive respect for him.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty


SkyWilk: Rossi has lost his mind. He really believes he can shove someone off the track and make him crash (either with the boot or not) and get away with it, and his ego is dragging the sport to another low... he should have retired long ago, if it has to come to this...
Watch it again. He left MM plenty of room. Even the picture with this article shows that there was lots of room.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty


juggaknot: It's pointless to talk rationally with a VR fanatic. There isn't another side of the story. It's mind-boggling how many of his fans think Rossi had ZERO fault in this.
I am not a fanatic and I have missed many of the races this season yet I still feel that Rossi did nothing wrong. You are setting a bad precedent if you want to punish every rider that misses the apex of a corner. MM was not even forced off of the track.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty


geoffrey.spears.52: Those Moto3 guys are getting sent back three and four rows on the grid for cruising around waiting for tows and you don't hear them running to CAS about it. Rossi went all postal and tapped into his inner road-rager as he totally forgot he was in a race and decided to crash Marquez and all he got was three points on his license and now he's trying to get that little slap on the wrist overturned or stayed so he can take an undeserved shot at the championship without having to suffer the penalty he earned. Lopsided justice is the same as no justice.
Be honest. Is Rossi the last thing that you think about before falling asleep at night and the first thing that you think about when you wake up?

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty


geoffrey.spears.52:
Painless: How could anyone discuss something with someone who thinks that Rossi cheated at Assen by cutting the corner? These are called motorcycles and they have slick tires. The big black thing is called the track.
Yes, and when you take your motorcycle and it's slick tires and run off the big black thing called the track and cross the big gravel thing called the gravel pit and then cut across the big black thing it's called cheating - even if you get away with it. If you bump me at the starting line and I head off track, cut a few corners and reenter half the lap ahead of you, should I be considered half a lap in the lead? What's the point of having the big black thing if you can cut across it to gain advantage?
So if you are forced off the track by another rider your race should be done?
