MotoGP » ‘This was maybe Rossi’s best ever season’


Fans forget this is top-level racing between riders at the top of their game and with extreme focus on winning. This generates sky-high confidence in their own abilities and judgement. On the other hand it also generates massive amounts of testosterone in the heat of battle. Confidence and testosterone caused MM93 to think he could get away with deliberately obstructing VR (Race Direction adjudged that he had), and confidence and testosterone fuelled VR46's reaction to the provocation. Without extreme confidence no rider will achieve the performance of a MotoGP rider. Without high levels of testosterone no rider will be competitive on track. Conclusion. On race day MotoGP riders need high levels of confidence and testosterone, which don’t generate mild manners and often induce riders actions which with hindsight appear to have been rash. So don’t judge the complete man on his race behaviour alone. It is RD’s responsibility to judge all factors fairly. This is where the failure lies.

MotoGP » ‘This was maybe Rossi’s best ever season’


What happened to my previous posting which was not at all offensive in replying to

pop poppy: Granpa Rossi should retire and let the youth play with their bikes.
I replied (as far as I can recall ) " Maybe you would like a Maximum age limit imposed of whatever age MM93 is that year? And maybe you would also like a Minimum age imposed of whatever age MM93 is that year? Great idea. NOT. Some people forget that Honda had the rules changed so that MM93 could go straight into their factory team, instead of having to spend a season on a satellite bike as was the rule in previous years. If MM93 had spent a year on a satellite bike other riders such as Cal Crutchlow would have put some manners on the spoilt child" Crash- what's wrong with that ? EDIT by CRASH.NET! No post removed. You did not submit it.

ondablade: This though is supposed to be GP where the quickest guys get the respect..
The flaws in your arguement are that it is no use being the quickest or fastest if you keep falling off OR if your bike is not reliable OR if tou don't have a top factory bike OR if your team is not well financed OR you are not skilled at making your tyres last OR many other reasons. Some of the other qualities needed in a MotoGP World champion are common sense, tenacity, ability to ignore pain, tactical expertise, good judgement and - it's an endless list. Also, respect is not earned by just being fastest or quickest. There are dozens of well-respected riders who have never been World Champion, for instance Randy Mamola. If your criteria were the most important then an empty track and "superpole" in one of it's many froms would be sufficient.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi withdraws CAS appeal


PaulW54: You are the one with flawed judgement oh self proclaimed wise one. You need to have both eyes open to make an unbiased judgement.
My post contained no judgements, just facts and true statements. My only bias was against the illogical and unfounded claims which the poster made. To paraphrase yourself, you need to keep at least one eye half open to be able to read properly and understand what is written.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi withdraws CAS appeal


PaulW54: Rossi withdrawing the appeal shows he is admitting guilt regarding his actions at Sepang.
No it doesn't. And MM93's denial of deliberate blocking doesn't mean he isn't guilty, in fact race direction said he was, so we know who is the liar . If you think VR46 withdrawing his case shows " he is admitting guilt" then your judgement is flawed to the extent that you are not capable of reaching a wise and fair conclusion. You need to think on a broader plane, or are you just Rossi-knocking? Yourself and the rest of the public, me included, have no idea what is going on behind the scenes, but just because all has gone quiet doesn't mean that there's nothing happening, nothing being discussed, and no deals and arrangements being reached.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi withdraws CAS appeal


Has anyone got anything NEW to say on this topic? Any NEW facts? Or even any NEW opinions or interpretations? Most of the previous posts of this thread are tedious repeats of views which have already been thoroughly chewed on previous topics. THIS thread concerns Rossi withdrawing his case. The matter is now closed, but not resolved, and it won't be resolved unless one or more riders admit they were wrong, which won't be happening any time soon. The discussion should now be turned to what new rules, or amendments to rules, will be made for 2016 to properly address any accusations of foul play and-or to avoid recurrence of on- and off-track disputes such as this.

MotoGP » ‘Uncertainty’ fuelled polemic after Rossi, Marquez clash


LanceTheHooliganAlbon: What a load of "BS"! I'm a Rossi fan and believe that BOTH rider's should have received a 2 point penalty!
That would have been an ideal solution, meaning that the final race grid would have been determined in the usual manner. Then with stern warnings to everyone that race behaviour would be under the microscope and any transgression in the final race would result in disqualification and a hat full of penalties carried forward into 2016 both MM93 and VR46 would have been on their best behaviour. In that way all the favourites would have had their results decided on merit and everyone could have gone home thrilled by a great racing conclusion to 2015.

MotoGP » ‘Uncertainty’ fuelled polemic after Rossi, Marquez clash


AyrtonSenna:
Codger: Guna4699......There is a possibility that next season the teams could be letting rivals' tyres down on the starting grid. It's not against the rules.
Or unplugging the tyre warmers...
Or leaning on another rider and knocking off a rear wheel sensor in a corner. Ooops, that's not a possibility- it happened- and who did it ?
