MotoGP » Crutchlow: Motegi hard braking good for me


It has become apparent that a lot of Crash.net posters like 'flag to flag' races. I'm happy for them but I wonder why ? I'll admit that it is fun for the TV, I admit that it allows someone who is not in the top 4 to get on the podium, I'll admit that it confuses 'Huey & the Fat Man'.....but is that what racing is for ? Rain is a great leveller and that in itself should reduce the top 4s advantages, it doesn't need pit stops.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: Motegi hard braking good for me


TrueFan...... I'll take my rollicking but you seem to have misread the rest of my post. I'll say that I've nothing against the lads who made the podium, and I'm certainly not saying that they cheated. What I do say is that the riders have different reasons for coming in when they do and it is blind luck where they finish after they do come in. After all Jorge proves my point. He knew he couldn't win so he came in expecting to give up his podium place and finish the race in 4th or 5th place, in fact when he re-joined the race he thought he was 12th ! Also, don't overlook the fact that those not fighting for the lead have the advantage of seeing who is coming in and who is not. If I wanted to watch a race decided by pit stops then I would watch F1.

CliffEdge.......I appreciate you supporting Cal. The problem with 'Flag to Flag' races is that it always favours those that have nothing to lose. Those riders who see a chance of a win tend to stay out in case the others stay out too. Hence Vermins win on the Suzuki, at the time that he came in he was fighting at the very back of the field. Hence Lozzers win after, in his own words, he had settled for 4th place and maybe even 5th. Cal, Aleix, and Lozzer filled the podium, and good for them. It wasn't an honest podium though, the current rules gave them a helping hand.

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’


Brian.......".......Dorna created to favor the goose that laid the golden egg......" Is that you TalentFan/ProfX ? Not another name change. Just curious....Why is it that if anyone suggests that Rossi is not as bad as you say he is you accuse them of worshipping him ? Bear in mind that he may find wins hard to come by, all the riders except Marc do, but he has beaten Dani and Jorge a fair few times this year. Are you saying that Dorna arranged for Stoner to win most races in the 800cc era ? Are you saying that Dorna have arranged for Marc to dominate ?
