MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


@ANSW yeah its good to know there are still a few folk on here who can differ in their views and still have a normal conversation about it. True, it's difficult to deny that dorna have been so explicit about how they wanted this scenario to pan out, and its no more acceptable when they attempted to be more discrete in the past. It is hard to know if its the tail wagging the dog sometimes.

@ well then "Brolong22 a man of words, sadly not of action" I like this, perhaps I should get a plane ticket to the indy round and give carmelo what for, im sure he would take notice. Ill say it again, its a forum mate, you think anybody from within the sport comes here to look for advice. "you could be a useful source of excuses for evading that unexpected tricky problem someone has posed" Which was what exactly? I must have mistaken you for someone who just pops up at the right moment to post an obvious and easy pop at another poster without actually contributing anything while doing so. Still you could be a useful source of....... er, well not much, sorry. :-)

@well then "So posters can moan about Dorna, but they also haven't a clue as to how to fix the problems" Correct. The people posting are not paid/making millions for the responsibility of running motogp so therefore are not accountable for finding its solution. This does not mean we are not entitled to an opinion, after all this is a forum not a business conference. "does not say much for you then does it" I don't post on here so others think more of me, its a forum not a popularity contest. Please contribute something more constructive about the subject on your next post please.

MotoGP » Yamaha confirm Valentino Rossi’s return


@AussieNSW I have been watching since 2000 and have seen the balance of racing/keeping sponsors and factory's sweet shift heavily towards the later, this must be even more pronounced to you during your time as a spectator. It is sad but I cant help thinking it has not happened by mistake. Im not sure id call dorna weak but greedy and narrow minded definitely. The sport will survive though once they have had all they can from it, it will change hands and somebody else will have to start the whole process all over again.

@Poddy AussieNSW may have a point but its an obvious one, PR pressure is nothing new in any high profile sport and certainly was in full effect in bike GP racing long before rossi came along. As for the current situation in MPG, as bad as it could be viewed, its not any of the riders faults. I don't believe that rossi's PR alone has more control over this sport than dorna, the view that they appear to play up to it is simply because, rightly or wrongly, it suits them to do so right now. We cant ignore the fact that dorna and motogp is a business, they dont exist solely to give us something to do on a Sunday afternoon. there is no conspiracy, just greedy business men feathering their own nests.

MotoGP » POLL: Who should replace Rossi at Ducati?


@me its all fantasy anyway cos you may or may not have heard CS is retiring? Anyway, even if he went back in theory, he's two years older and wiser and experienced a much better bike now, im not convinced he would be prepared to risk the crashes just for the race wins and end up 4th in the table again, granted its better that 7th but this meant to be a factory bike and the sad truth is, it could not compete with the japs on a championship level even when CS was on it in 09/10 hence why he left ducati, for the same reason everybody eles did. All the posters who would love to see him back on it must really dislike him.

"now watch for all the major sponsors to start rolling in with offers now that Rossi is back" its interesting how many posters have missed this obvious point when they are quick to call VR and/or yamaha frauds. His results may not have been great for a few years but his record means he is still the biggest commercial asset in the sport, his persona also plays a large part in this. Contracts are not drawn up on results alone, some may not like this but it does not stop it being a fact. In any given profession, if an employer offers somebody a better contract than their current employer most people take it, motogp is no exception, those that think it should be need to wake up.
