MotoGP » Valentino Rossi 'suffering' but won’t leave Ducati


@Cute, me old jousting partner! If I had to be either of the two riders that you name. It would have to be Stoner. Reasons. No1. Younger and STILL fighting. No2. Rich enough to never have to work again No3. Married and a Daughter. Happily Married with a young child is the making of the man. Add that people wont recognise him or bother hime when he leaves this game and Casey will have it all.... Unless the lack of Ego stroking leads to drinking and wife beating like most top athletes:)

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


@Liam, I wasn't mudslinging. I just meant that if he finished 4th then he would only have half the posts!! @Cute (the next part re-written due to reply being deleted by Crash) Sponsors bring the money to bring the ride. The riders don't care. Proof is a certain Italian saying "no smokes" on my gear and then appearing in Camel Yellow. Just becuase you smile in the right places doesn't mean you're enjoying yourself. Very few of these riders enjoy having to lose their free time at shows and corporate get-togethers.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


I do know what racing means to me. If i'm competeting then it's my competition that I'm in. This is Motogp and I'm NOT IN IT. I'm an observer of the action. I watch the ego warriors battle each other and watch certain sorts drown in their own exitement brought on with being high on adrenalin and their alter-ego coming to the party. I enjoy the racing for the racing. I don't care that Casey has big teeth and to some he moans about real issues. I don't care that Jorge to some looks like he's reading an autocue worse than Danni does. This is a job that they get paid highly for AND they have to put up with being filmed while doing it. Some love the attention and some just want to win the race they're in on that given sunday.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


@Cute. I don't understand what your point is then. Are you saying that anyone who isn't Champ at seasons end is the loser? There is going to be 20 losers at seasons end 2012. That will include race winners, podium finishers and ex-champs too. I'm not a Stoner fan boy and certainly not a Vale posse massive either. I watch riders compete and have stated in the past that if the pinnicle of racing is round multi-storey car parks with pedal trikes and 3 drops of "3 in one oil" to spice the racing in a wacky races stylee then thats what I will be watching.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


Stoner is the only one that can ride the ducati? What ducati? The trellis frame ducati? Remember, he was a failure on the carbon ducati. Stoner is lucky he didnt have to face a young Valentino Rossi or he would have followed the path taken by gibernau and biaggi. posted by Cute Baby. So, to win or podium the carbon framed Ducati makes you a failure? Your own logic points to Vale's success the last two seasons then? Ie podium fail, mid pack = non arrival.... So to finish 2nd and 3rd most seasons to Vale means that Max and Sete were losers? Then the whole current pack from Casey/Jorge down is just there for the numers on the grid then... This is racing that we're watching. It's not a soap opera where they drag old characters out when the ratings drop. This is cut throat PHYSICAL sport where the egomaniacs in it are out to beat each other. This isn't a sport for the old men. They are peak athletes fed a diet of legal/illegal next season supplements to max their game. Oh yeah, you have

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare


Sorry to have to add to the count of replies to this thread but it's taken me a couple of hours to read all the comments so far.. Crash, where is the "results of Qatar race" thread to post a simple reply of great race that was gripping from start to finish!? Anyway, it was a TERRIBLE start for Vale. It's only the first round and everyones allowed a bad day at the office. If this continues at Jerez then the fingers will point at the problem.. Thats when the real problem will start as Honda will NEVER let him return as Vale riding the Ducati bad just proves what Honda said all along about their input is more than riders input. Check out what happened to Max Biaggi and anything to do with Showa at 2005 seasons end. Honda left Pons in the lurch with no support and the smoking Camel money jumped ship to Yamaha. All due to Honda having to punish Max for what he'd done..

MotoGP » Honda NSR500: 'The greatest grand prix machine'


@Grendlehop. You're right with the "He's the only one left on the grid whose ridden one in competition". Does Honda let any of their top men have a go on the old weapons at private functions to let them taste the old school beasts? Why do these Cheese puff promo vidoes from the USA ALWAYS have that old "friendly" generic voice over that reminds me of interesting but monotone educational videos from my old physics days?!?!
