MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


GSXER:
Tetley:
GSXER: Yes, the whole world saw his advancing and adapting skills when he was on Ducati. :P
No, he exposed Ducati's reluctance to advance and adapt- that's what the whole world saw.
Isn't it strange when the same world went blind and deaf, when CS and Marco Melandri were doing the same? And they called CS as moaner for doing the same. LOL
LOL indeed. But only those in Ducati world were blind and deaf. Only those in Ducati world sent one rider to the shrink. Only those in Ducati world disbelieved another riders illness. Those Ducati world people are now gone and new engineers with new attitudes prevail. TF for that.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


The vote is for "Star Of The Year", not "Who is champion this year" (which was decided on points gained racing). "Star" does not take into account bike or team - it is a measure of the man himself. Never mind 9 World Championships- at age 35 he came back and was only beaten by the most fantastic young rider in recent history. He runs his own GP team to give younger riders a chance to succeed. He has his ranch where riders go to improve their skills. He's even a successful 4-wheel competitor. And that, gentlemen, is genuine STAR quality which none of the current grid have bettered. VR46 is THE Star of the current millenium.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: Full Results


Fullofit: Redding THAT far ahead of Aoyama after similar results on similar bikes ... more home town voting.
And what's wrong with home town voting ? The Italians are noted for it, the Spanish even more so. Henry Cooper, the British and European Champion Boxer, used to say that when he fought in Italy, he had to knock out his opponent to get a Draw ! But here you are, saying that British people on a British site should be excluded from voting for their (deserving) countryman ? That would be nonsense.

MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st


ProfessorX: Good job Yamaha, you built a bike around Rossi and Jorge managed to have a hard time setting up his bike and working with the electronics, just enough to help move Rossi up to where MM could hang back and have a duel or two. At least Jorge's swing arm never snapped and his bike never 'wigged out' to the point of injury.
Prof, I don't think there's any proof to support your theory. On the contrary, take VR out of the equation, and that would leave JLo 2nd in the championship where everyone (pre-season) expected him to be. This therefore proves that JLO hadn't suffered from any Yamaha handicaps or favouritism. It was simply that VR raised his game, was more adaptable, made better use of the M1, and was more determined. And that is how he beat JLo. Q.E.D. To change the subject, I'd like to wish all Crash posters, including our colonial cousins, a Happy Christmas, and an exciting, racey New Year.

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


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.

MotoGP » ‘Healthy’ MotoGP facing ‘optimistic future’


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.
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.

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.

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


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.
