MotoGP » MotoGP Star of the Year vote: 1st

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.

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.

ProfessorX: If Rossi was any good he would have been able to podium on the dry on the Ducati, the same bike Stoner could win races on.
True, the fisherman won a WC on it, but the following season he didn't do nearly as well. The Ducati just wasn't keeping pace with the development of other bikes. Proof ? When CS switched to Honda he was back to winning ways. But I see you're in denial. To keep abreast of your hero's achievements please refer to the magazine Australian Angling Monthly.

ProfessorX:
Tetley: 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.
you probably haven't been watching GPs very long have you, .
Like the rest of your self-congratulatory drivel, that statement has no validity in fact. The records support my assertion so arguing against my statement is futile.

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.

JasonLewis: Redding didn't beat a world champ on equal terms. Hayden was out for awhile remember?
So, by your reasoning, the series should be put on hold until an injured rider recovers? Or should an injured rider be awarded points for the races he misses ? No, staying on the bike and avoiding injury is a criteria of success.

Some1 Mediocre? Significant of nothingness?
A weak attempt at trolling?
