MotoGP » Toseland black flag for missing 'harsh' penalty.


@JT2 "I guess they dont understand and will never understand how much it hurts us real fans to see our guy, who we know can do so much better be...whats the best way to say this...at the back." I completely agree with you. I groan when Haga crashes, when he isn't on top of the rostrum where he should be. I, like you, am a fan, of many things and motorcycle racing is one of them. I too like to stand behind who I cheer for, why wouldn't you? Through the many ups and downs every rider experiences. But what I will not be, is a blind fanboy, JT has had his time. He is a broken confident-less shell of the rider he used to be. Don't hate me for telling you what you should already know.

MotoGP » Toseland black flag for missing 'harsh' penalty.


@Juvenial "While some of these people are Brits and don't support James. Many are foreign and just doing it to be spiteful." I have been quite vocal about JT and how bad of a MotoGP rider I think he is, but let me clear somethings up 1. I am not American 2. I have nothing against Brits, I live in the commonwealth 3. I have nothing to be spiteful for. 4. I rooted for him riding for Ducati and TK. What I am, and have always said, is he is a piss poor GP rider. If he went back to WSBK, and did very well I would not be surprised at all. He is a very good racer, just not in GP. What gets my g0at is all the Brits slagging any criticism about him, and refusing to call a spade a spade

MotoGP » Edwards: Back to the drawing board.


It's hard to say what his issue is. He's 5th in the championship, and the best Sat rider. Do you really expect him to battle with the factory boys? Considering no Sat bike battles with the factory boys, I'd say he is doing pretty good. He isn't going to beat Rossi, Lorenzo, Stoner, those cats are just too strong, so he has to settle with beating everyone else, minus Pedrosa. I think his style needs to change, or he needs to toss his superbike-esque setup for more of a 250cc style setup. And I don't understand how he has so much front end issues, yet finish consistently where he does. Although his current teammate makes him look like Jesus on 2 wheels.

MotoGP » Toseland black flag for missing 'harsh' penalty.


@soops Its actually different. Hayden is on a difficult bike to ride, if you dont know that you should pull your head out of your a$$ and pay attention. Marco couldn't do it, and neither has anyone else. The issue here is the JT fans here are whats known as "fanboys". Those are people who will blindly cheer for their Idol. He jumps the start, ignores a black flag, and they say hey, we will get 'em in Germany JT. That is racing 101. You need to obey all flags at all times. The fact that this guy has been consistantly mediocre goes un-noticed. He is in the top flight of racing making rookie mistakes. And doesn't have a single dazzling performance to back it up. At least Colin does!

MotoGP » Laguna Seca MotoGP - Warm-up times.


Unfortunately I think Rossi will win, Stoner on the podium, Edwards just missing out, but beating JT as per the norm. JT will end up 10th if he finishes at all. If he gets any better spots its due to attrition. No podium for Hayden, poor guy. As for the Repsol boys, its a toss up between Dovi, and Pedrosa but one will be on the podium, the other will either crash, or end up 5th.

MotoGP » Colin Edwards: I want to stay at Tech 3.


I am definitely not getting into the CE vs JT debate. There is none, JT's results have been poor, and he will most likely not be around next year at Tech Tois! As for CE, he should still be there, unless the Yammi Factory doesn't want to pay his salary. If they grab Ben, then he would be the perfect mentor for him. I am not so sure they will grab Ben tho. IF he doesn't take the WSBK crown this year they will most likely make him stay there. Yammi is already beating up on everyone else in GP so no need to rush things.

MotoGP » Hayden: No miracles.


Wow, just when you thought everyone knew what they were talking about you read posts like this. Unless your initials are CS the Desmo is un-rideable. Plain and simple, NO one has gotten to grips with the bike. Now Nicky Hayden sucks? LOL, yes he had a lucky championship in '06, but it doesnt mean he is a sh*t rider. You dont make it MotoGP if you are a bad rider, let alone win races, and score podiums. Lets be serious. Look at Marco, he is on an undeveloped bike and he is doing better this year then last. The Desmo is a curse unless your are an Aussie! As for Shakey, he is dead weight in MotoGP, he is barely a blip in WSBK, and I am willing to bet the 1098 is easier to ride.
