MotoGP » Costly fall for under pressure Spies


@Mike Villasenor So why don't you write directly to Yamaha, instead of posting your thoughts here? No one at Yamaha reads these threads, or could care less what is posted here, but they may take notice of a direct consumer communication. Slagging Spies at every opportunity will have no effect on you achieving your desired result. Also self proclaiming yourself "King" of one of the deadliest highways in the US and known street racing location, is not a lofty status. Street racing kills thousands of people every year, it is not an activity to be proud of or something that should be encouraged.

MotoGP » Costly fall for under pressure Spies


@Moto I am just expressing my opinion, not slagging Crutchlow. I mentioned him only because aeolus mentioned him. You may feel my post is ridiculous, but it is every bit as valid as any other posted here. Sorry that you are too blinkered to value any other perspective than that of your own. Also if Yamaha didn't feel Cal could progress, his contract could easily have been voided or bought out. No contract is iron clad. Also if you would look at his rookie season, then yes Cals' was an utter failure, and was one where he never beat his teammate in a single race, where they both finished.

MotoGP » Costly fall for under pressure Spies


@aeolus And Crutchlow suffered last season far worse than Spies has this year. He was given the time to improve and has, Spies will do the same. I think the mind games Jarvis was playing with Spies over the off season with his constant berating, backfired and created what you see today. A rider who ran beyond the limit early in the year, resulting in many crashes, a collapse of his confidence, and a huge point hole to try to dig his way out of. Any reasonable person can see that is not a good place to be, and it was unnecessary to heap on the pressure that he did. Jarvis, based upon his recent comments, knows that he made a mistake by acting as he did and Spies will not be lose his seat because of Jarvis' piss poor management style.

MotoGP » Tweaks, fine adjustments and a fall for Spies


@CRASH.NET Please respond to my question, instead of deleting my posts! How is addressing a poster, whom does nothing but belittle those riders they dislike and their fans, and asking them to be respectful to those riders and fans, and further suggesting that the fan voice posts in support of their favorite rider instead, warrant being removed from the comments thread? I am awaiting your reply. EDIT by CRASH.NET - because comments in your original post constituted a personal attack, and because it derailed the thread into being about another poster. Your point is now made, so back to the racing... How is that a personal attack, because I directly addressed them? So if it were a generalized statement, it then would have been acceptable? That is a bit of a twisted standard don't you think?

MotoGP » Tweaks, fine adjustments and a fall for Spies


@The Bad Guy It was a Stoner fan, Seperated, whom spends 90% of his time slagging other riders and belittling their fans. I just suggested that he would better served on the Stoner article, supporting his rider, and stated that all the riders deserved our respect for putting their lives on the line in the name of our entertainment. I also stated that the sport would better off without the fans, whom conducted themselves in the manner that he does. Obviously the most offensive post ever made here, or so someone thinks! EDIT by CRASH.NET - try and keep it about the racing and not about other posters. If you find a post objectionable or offensive please report it.

F1 » Ecclestone insists London GP '100% no joke'


Bernie is clearly out of his mind! Just weeks ago he cast doubt over NJ because the streets were crowned. He more or less made out that the leveling of the NJ streets would be something along the lines of leveling the Alps, impossible. Are the streets of London not crowned? Are the residents, the Royal Historical Society, and city officials going to allow him the necessary power to remove the designed drainage from the streets surrounding the many Royal and historic landmarks, which are along the proposed race route? It would seem when Bernie stands to make a profit his attitude changes. I suppose it may be that his common sense is blocked by visions of profits. On the surface, this event seems a thousand times less likely to happen than any event Bernie has ever cast doubt over.

MotoGP » Luckless Spies hopes to eradicate tyre issues in Italy


Who makes these headlines for this site? It would seem they want to convince everyone that Spies cannot come to grips with the tires, yet for two straight articles Spies has clearly stated that he missed on the set-up at at the Sachsenring, which prevented him from having the side bite that he needed. He he was open, honest, and stated the truth. Nevertheless, this site keeps banging on as if Spies said his tires are the problem, which clearly he didn't. Was the truth just not controversial enough, so you felt that you had to add to it and read something entirely different from his statement? Why don't you people just report the facts and not imply that riders are saying things which clearly they are not? Good journalism is not yellow journalism, so just stop with it already!

MotoGP » Frustration as Spies loses out to Dovi again


@Md Zane It was actually Liam48, who believes Spies is blaming his tires for his finish at Germany. Spies clearly attributed his troubles to missing on the optimum set up, which gave him a lack of edge grip and acceleration. Only the poor writing by the author implies that the tires themselves were any issue, not Spies. But I suppose factual reporting of what a rider said is too difficult for some and doesn't provide the conflict some desire. Rather shady if you ask me. It makes things even worse when people read and believe it was said by the rider, which in this case it was assumed or interpreted by this author and not a direct quote.
