MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


RSMick: I am sure some here believe the smile is the latest development from Asimo, and the smile is only there because of servo's and emotion aids.
You may laugh, but high profile sportsmen are well coached in public speaking and how to do public speaking, etc. How to present themselves as a 'product' and as a spokesperson for their sponsors and employers. I was amazed in my naivety many years ago when a friend who played Club Rugby here in Wales was telling me how that, as soon as a player received selection and a Welsh Cap, that he would be bundled off by the WRU to be conditioned so that they would present a media and fan friendly and very diplomatic and politically correct persona to the fans and media. That was over 20-years ago. Just how focussed on it do you think they are now?

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Hmm, the usual suspects all lining up to have a pop at my opinions eh? And I'm a 'Troll'? Funny. Yes guys, its the Rider making the difference, and the best guys will always be at the top. Is it? In THAT case, how come Rossi is multiple WC on a Factory Yamaha, then spends 2 seasons in a virtual wilderness at Ducati, then straight back to top 4 status, multiple podiums and a win... as soon as he gets back on a Factory Yamaha? This is the single biggest proof that its the equipment making the biggest difference - even with Rossi being 35 and past his prime perhaps - swing a leg over the 2nd best package out there and he's again a contender. Why has no-one won on a Satellite bike in over 8-years (& then it was as rare as Rocking Horse $h1t)? Oh yes, its cos no-one who rides one is good enough, right? But how do you KNOW this, when the package & support isn't as good? Just believe then. Clearly, independent Thinking is not for you, so stick with your blind faith and obedience. Just

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


....... keep on believing pilgrims. Thanks though for giving me a good laugh this morning! You WANT to believe all that you are told, and WANT to believe the media and those involved, and are happy to take it as Gospel. It never occurs it seems to you that ALL these people have a vested personal interest in MotoGP and/or one of the Mfrs somehow, and that what they tell you might be motivated by such things. Oh no. If (insert here) said it, it MUST be 100% Gospel Truth. Haha. Good luck you Accolytes. You're gonna need it.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Garcia: LOL Talent Fan, humiliated much? He's saying it loud and clear for you to understand, electronics or not, it's the riders that ultimately make the difference, also "without electronics qualifying would become more spread out and so would the race" totally contradicting your absurd theories that it's because of the electronics that there is a big gap between bikes. But sure, we all know Doohan is only saying these things because he's part of the Dorna conspiracy and he's paid to spread motogp lies to the world... I really don't know if your are a deranged person with a paranoid fixation or just a troll. My guess is both.
DOH! He's an ex-rider and ambassador for the Sport. What do you expect him to say? Also its the electronics that dictate positions, not big gaps. Get it right if you're going to have a go eh?

SasquatchBob:
TalentFan: Nothing contentious or really outspoken there really
A couple of things he did say were "When it comes to competition I think without electronics qualifying would become more spread out and so would the race." and "I think the same guys would be winning whether they were riding two strokes or four strokes." Interesting... Is he wrong or lying do you think?
Dunno. Its an opinion he qualifies by saying he hasnt ridden the new stuff at race pace, so even he's not saying its definitive. He also says its critical to be with the right team, and a factory team. Does this mean he's saying no-one else has a hope? Like I said, opinion, and carefully delivered & not too far from safe centre.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Nothing contentious or really outspoken there really. No real pro-this and anti-that at all. Pretty well steered down the middle of the road. This isn't a poke at the interview nor Mick Doohan, its just the fact that no-one with any sense publicly says whats really on their mind if they have a polarised opinion. People in the public eye can no longer afford to be 'characters', or complain etc. etc. They'll have contracts stating clearly what they are limited to saying, and if not there's the constant threat of being black-balled and losing income, or being sued. Its got to be damned hard these days to be an interviewer (cos you know you'll get nothing but PR-Speak) and hard to be the interviewee (co you have to think carefully about the myriad possible implications of your reply and formulate that reply accordingly. Ive noted that Kenny Roberts seems to get around this by mostly saying very little at all.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Yeah, I'm getting that grantrd. None of my posts have ever been aimed at those like yourself who aren't capable of understanding, but just make loud noises to compensate for lack of original thought and counter-opinion. Possibly there are those out there who might read one and go "I never thought of it like that" and actually provoke some thought on the matter for themselves. Even if their conclusion didn't agree with mine, at least it would stimulate some thought on the matter. Which after all, is what forums and such are meant to be about. I am acutely aware that there are those that are lost causes. That is obvious when their total lack or will or ability to challenge or question is exposed by their simplistic and inadequate nonsense, or plain ignorant 'why don't you just shove off' type of playground posts. Like your wonderful example.

MotoGP » Mick Doohan - Q&A


Fair play Bob, at least you've taken the trouble to present an opinion politely. And when I am less than glowing its generally in kind to the manner in which I have been addressed (see grantrd). If people are polite to me, then I am polite in turn. This is not practised nor understood by some, so there is sometimes an overwhelming urge to respond in kind. Yes, of course I've thought about it. Half of my posts are replies to shouty and often rude ones where I am reiterating things I've already said... simply as it seems people aren't even prepared to consider anything they don't like, or wish to even think about things. But they'll happily bash away at me for doing so. Such is life eh? As for "am I right"... the truth is of course I cannot be sure. But.... there are plenty of indicators and information which HAS to lead me to consider that it is POSSIBLE. Ideally, my viewpoint would open a lively and respectful debate, where counter-argument is supported by logical, considered

Brain: Like i have told you at least two dozen times. Moto GP is not just a riders contest, it is engineering contest as well. It defies logic for someone to come onto a GP board and complain about technology.
It is MEANT to be both perhaps. My point was that the Riders contest has now been pushed to the margins and rendered pointless BY the engineering. Not so hard to understand, and its a logical and obvious truth. Do fans want an engineering contest, if in doing so it means the Racers become bit prt players in the game? I really doubt it. Or, would they want the tech controlled to levels where the riders contest was the most important aspect? It is a very real, and very valid question that you are just trying to bully out of existence. You know my feeling and I know yours. If push comes to shove, and fans were given the clear choice, I think my view would prove to be the popular one (just look at the media focus - its ALL about the riders).
