TalentFan: ...... The guy is a one-man propaganda machine, and most of you lot fail to see it.
Thank you TalentFan for the sweeping generalisation that all commentators on Crash are so easily led. Or is it that should we not agree with you we are wrong?
Sorry J13, I am happy if you are one of the enlightened ones. Perhaps you haven't seen the sheer volume of pro Honda propaganda Ole Mick comes out with. It's like he is a one man PR machine for Nakamoto! Try questioning the status quo in MotoGP and he is right in there, always looking to discredit the poster or misdirect when all else fails.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


By the way SasquatchBob.... Yes you're right. MotoGP IS the pinnacle.... If you are on one of the factory Yamaha's or Honda's. Not for anyone else it isn't. They are always one step or more BELOW the pinnacle, as MotoGP is stratified with 4 levels of competiveness 1. Factory bikes 2. Satellite Factory Bikes (which are actually controlled by the Factory's that supply them who race in 1. above, so have power of control over their so-called closest level of Rival - so they can 'manage' Tier 2 anyway). 3. Open bikes. (Not quite as good as Tier 2, & again still supplied through thos that race in Tier 1. So... still not independent). 4. Remnants of CRT. So hopelessly uncompetitive no Factory feels the need to worry about them. Also Ducati... but unless and until Ducati defy all the odds and become a Tier 1 genuine competitor again, then they cannot affect the status quo when battling with Tier 2 and 3 teams. And RSMick has the brass neck to claim that MotoGP has 'no issues'! The

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


If we want an EL on a non factory bike ( or a Hayden, a Petrucci etc) to have a fair shot at the top 4..... Then you have to MAKE the top 4 give up their huge technical advantages, NOT try and upgrade the other bikes. That can NEVER work as the Factory Teams hold all the resource cards, as well as controlling many elements on their customer teams bikes! A curtailing of technology to inhibit the ability of the Factory Teams to employ tech and resources to control their position at the head of the pack is the only thing that can be effective. Fans need to realise this. Then we still have the problem that Dorna lacks the spine to actually stand up to the Mfrs and implement proper reform.

V4Poweeeer: People have been bemoaning the performance of the proddy bikes. However in my mind they maybe even slower next season with a more powerful engine unless this 2014 spec engine has a very friendly power delivery or there is a massive update for the spec ecu and software next season.
Bigger updates and complexity are just what the Factory's WANT. it plays straight to their resource strengths and gives them more power and control in MotoGP. IMO reform is what's needed. Cut out all the data, simplify not upgrade the ECU's. Get back to the idea CRT started that shook the Factory's. Make the rider the important part again, get some parity this way, as it's the only way it has a chance. Less is assuredly more.

Fans have no reason to be ignorant of the situation any more. Grand Prix I think will never become a proper sporting environment as long as it has Factory Team involvement dictating just who is allowed what. I think a field of independent race teams represents the only possibility of a genuinely sporting environment in GP's in the future. Dorna simply are not capable of keeping the powerful manufacturers in check. Why for example (after they banned dual clutch boxes to try and keep manual boxes only for rider control) when Honda developed a single clutch seamless to get around the ban...... didnt Dorna simply amend the rules to ban that and restore parity? Dorna didn't WANT seamless in MotoGP. But caved in and rolled over when Big H put his foot down. So... Who does it look like really runs the show eh? The Organiser, or the Entrant?

....... but it's just papering over the cracks & diverting attention from the reality. I detest the idea that a rider can strive to enter GP's and once he makes it there to then have any hope of success denied to him. MotoGP is simply just EXPLOITING most of the riding talent, engineers, teams, sponsors etc.... .... So that they can be a supporting cast poor-relation backdrop for the powerful Teams and Sponsors to be able to make themselves look better. Dorna is allowing and sustaining an environment which all but guarantees results for a privileged few, and guarantees results are denied to most. Yet we have so-called fans like RSMick actively campaigning in favour of this continuing? I fail totally to understand why all GP fans aren't demanding reform.

So far the ongoing tech rules proposals coming out of Dorna suggest that they are true to form... Toothless and ineffective. The status quo will not change, and MotoGP will not become a true Riders contest. Once fans stop raving about the talents and successes of "the aliens" and think deeper... It will dawn that (due to the politics and power) that... 1. A small percentage of riders are permitted the opportunity to succeed 2. Most of the field are prevented from putting up a challenge. So... Why are there defenders of a system where the premier class of motorcycle sport is actually pre-arranged to have hardly any true combatants? There ARE ways to put this right. Instead Dorna introduce ever more convoluted and over complicated rules to muddy the waters and try to hide the fact that they aren't actually sorting anything. Unfortunately it's corrupted, and reduced to a sham. I hoped 2016 would at least START something, but it's just papering over the cracks & diverting atten

RSMick: Size not weight. How many times do you type RSMick? Your becoming a Tobesterr.
Ah. Back to the playground (or PM's Question Time Commons barracking tactics) eh? Sneaky , underhanded, calculating, devious, cunning, unpleasant, untrustworthy. Yep, should be a Politician. No moral compass required. If you cannot bully a poster off track with your pseudo so-called facts, then you'll employ any other tactic to try and win a point. Just how far and how low will you stoop to defend your Agenda, Mick?

@ 46Renovation History did not have ever smaller bikes physically and didn't have a 21, then 20 litre fuel allocation. So the comparison with Doohan etc is meaningless. FYI Marco Simoncelli was struggling with fuel because of his size and weight in MotoGP and was struggling to complete the race distance on occasion. It seems that people are determined to disagree with basic physics, simply because it is me that is saying so! RSMick has his own agenda. And it's a recurring theme where he ALWAYS defends the status quo in MotoGP
