RR » Guy Martin: Tyco BMW deal stopped me from retiring


bigphilsp12:
Thanks, that’s a much more balanced and reasoned comment than your previous “you shout be totally embarrassed for your posts” and “You obviously have little or no knowledge of the sport full stop” and “To suggest a comparison is how Guy will ride the BM at the Island in 2015 is complete rubbish”. I still think Michael is his own worst enemy and his greatness will be handicapped if he doesn’t get his behaviour under control. Tyco BMW must have had good reason to hire William in preference to Michael, and it is obviously not because of their comparative performances. As for Guy, in his autobiography he reveals that a psychiatrist diagnosed him as suffering form Aspergers syndrome, which makes his achievements all the more remarkable. I wonder, and I don’t mean this in a derogatory manner, if living up to Robert’s standards and losing him so tragically has affected Michael’s mind-set in a way that would similarly benefit from expert intervention.

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


Brain:
Tetley:
Brain .
Brain, we've seen you employ this tactic before, very recently, changing the subject to bashing BSB, about which you have nil actual experience and scant knowledge. The subject is "Healthy MotoGP facing optimistic future". Changing the subject to BSB is a sure sign of a failing initial argument. You took this same beating last week, why do it again?
I was not the one who invoked BSB as the way to run a bike racing series. All i did was show those who did , the performance inequities in that series mirror other series
That’s not a valid answer. The only previous mention of BSB in this thread was a passing mention in a quote by Michael Laverty on the topic of MotoGP. AFAIK, MLav does not post here and even if he did it isn’t likely that you could show him anything. I’m becoming convinced that “Brain” is a self-awarded but inapt soubriquet.

TF2: Bottom line?
Mate, the bottom line is that you have everyone convinced. Convinced, that is, that you don't like MotoGP, that you are not enthusiastic about it's recent past and it's imminent future. Convinced that you will criticise and oppose any continuance of the status quo and will also criticise and oppose any move to change the status quo.
TF2: Give me a break.
Give US a break. Give YOURSELF a break. You've made your point countless times. It's good when you post corrections on the (too frequent) times that other posters make stupid statements, but remember- never argue with idiots- they will wear you out and never concede to sense. And where there's no sense there's no reasoning.

bigphilsp12: tetley- every road race in Ireland,tt, manx and classic, Southern 100 for over 40years as well as built several bikes that competed all over Ireland and the Island (last bike built 2013 for classic). BSb for several years and oh forgot to mention road raced for 12 years with some success and also a short circuit championship.
That's a good record, mate, well done, sincerely. And top marks for supporting who I guess to be your countryman (North or South, doesn't matter in racing), as I do with Guy. My issue with you is your absolutes- when you say "completely" you over-state to the point of insult. When you say "know nothing" you overstate to the point of insult. At the risk of doing the same thing, I'd point out that there are no absolutes in racing. And when you say Guy will benefit from Michael's work, every rider benefits from the work of the previous jockey. That's inevitable. Chill. Have a pint of Murphy’s on me.

Brain We have already established that there are many players who can afford to play in GP besides Honda and Yamaha, and we established that every racing series, including BSB, has back markers. Are the rules in BSB to damned expensive for anyone except the biggest 4 teams to afford. You took this same beating last week, why do it again.

bigphilsp12: tetley and tomco you shout be totally embarrassed for your posts.
Certainly not. No reason to be.
You obviously have little or no knowledge of the sport full stop.
Don’t know about Tomco, but I’ve been to the NW200 last year, the TT and the Grand Prix on the IoM several times, and been to MotoGP in Spain and WSBK at Monza, plus BSB at many UK tracks. What is your experience?
Before knocking Michael Dunlop about 'running off at the mouth'
I’m not knocking MD- he’s a terrific rider and has been pleasant enough whenever I’ve met him. I am commenting on how teams regard him and why they don’t renew his contracts. He very nearly didn't find a ride for 2014, having upset so many teams.
To suggest a comparison is how Guy will ride the BM at the Island in 2015 is complete rubbish
We’ll see, won’t we. Until then the jury is out.

shamarone: you are correct sir...! (Ed McMahon voice)
Who ?
shamarone and what makes you think this is my "home" as opposed to just my current address...? LOL unbeknownst, these are 2 different things aren't they. voting rights are a luxury extended only to citizens.
LOL I didn’t specify a location but my comment probably applies to wherever you call “home”. The whole world is in deep doo-doo right now.
shamarone I've made a conscious choice to be HERE helping you gents solve the problems you haven't been able to solve (clearly), and helping the rest NOT be less than what they think they ought to be.
S1, You are so benevolently altruistic you make Mother Theresa look selfish. What would we do without your guidance?. See? You’re more entertaining when you lighten up, Bro, Hombre, Compadre, Mon Ami or whichever. Hee-hee ( Smiley Face )

shamarone: re: "i think its a case of ,The Song remains The Same"
YOUR song certainly stays the same, bro'. Never mind Led Zep - The Stones and "I can't get no satisfaction" could equally be your theme tune. Why is it that you perpetually major on finding negatives? MotoGP has reversed it's trend and is now developing in a good direction. It can't achieve perfection overnight and one team's perfection is another team's compromise. The imminent Rules and tyre and wheel size changes will generate interest in whose team can benefit the most from them. Sadly, my mate, I don't detect any enthusiasm coming from you. If you can't be enthusiastic about it perhaps International Motorcycle Racing is not the sport for you?
