MotoGP » Rossi: Marc’s wins the rider, mine the Honda...

I know its the norm to put down previous generation riders but Rossi has beaten his fair share back in the day. Like Jed mentioned above there were riders who were capable of winning on their day. IMO Rossi's biggest achievement is winning the title in 08 when everyone predicted he was finished and then going one step further and defending it next year, something which hasn't been replicated since.

RockNRolla46: Can we stop bi*ching about Yamaha's lack of acceleration now?
Yamaha acceleration is fine, in the gyroscopic cam you could see they are quick on acceleration, they have put in a lot of work. The difference between them and Honda is that Honda's are too strong on the brakes, did you see how Marquez was closing almost 100 meters in braking?

MotoGP » Rossi: There was something wrong

Ageing is part of life, do people expect a sportsperson to be at their peak of powers all the time? Rossi is now competing against a third generation rider in Marc at age of 35 in his 19th consecutive in motorcycle racing. I think he's doing pretty well. Its not Rossi's fault competition when he broke through was inferior to the current climate, they very same way it was not Roger Federer fault in tennis when he was beating Agassi, Hewitt, Rod**** and Safin. The only common factor between these two legends is whenever a younger generation has thrown a challenge at them, they have come back winning championships and grand slams. That's they very reason both are so highly thought of and often mentioned as GOAT in their respective sport.

MotoGP » Rossi: There was something wrong

Brain: And that is my contention, that Rossi is not someone to put on a pedestal and declared the greatest of all time like his followers have a tendency to do. You said it yourself, he has kind of stuck with the better crop.
What? Can't you realize any sports person has a limited time frame where they are their peak and it tends to be at most 10 years in which Rossi was the most dominant. He hasn't 'kind of stuck', he has won world championships while competing against your Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa and at the end that's the only thing that counts.
During their time in Moto GP together, Stoner had better numbers, Lorenzo has better numbers. Dani has comparable numbers.
Numbers? Only important number which speaks the loudest is the number of championship won and none of them have more than 2. Exactly the amount Rossi has won during your Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo era.

MotoGP » Rossi: There was something wrong

Brain: Wins Rossi 27 Pedrosa 25 Podiums Rossi 71 Pedrosa 90 Poles Rossi 19 Pedrosa 27
Number of championship won in Premier Class Rossi 2 Pedrosa 0 For better viewing I only counted the years since Pedrosa entered into premier class. Bah! Trust me, if I started pulling Rossi's stats you'll look very very silly. You've been (nicely) warned.
