MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez made me lose the championship

Rossi is going to race hard in Valencia. He will ride like a bat out of hell to get as close to the front as possible, and close the gap to Lorenzo. If he still manages to win this year, I will be incredibly amazed considering that he has positioned himself as the villain now (...along with the already characterized villain of Marquez). My personal opinion is that Rossi fought fire with fire. Marquez played dirty, and Rossi called him on it in hopes that he'd get the message (somewhat diplomatically). He didn't, and chose to STILL play dirty, so Rossi rode him hard and he went down AGAIN. I don't feel that the crash was deliberate on Rossi's part, but he did push Marquez wide. It's not like Marquez hasn't done a bunch of stuff on track, so I don't have sympathy for him. I still enjoy both riders very much, and this is one hell of a season.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez made me lose the championship

Cont. For those claiming "unsportsmanlike behavior" and a "lack of class", put yourself in Rossi's shoes. He's vying for another title, and there were two deliberate attempts to affect his title chances. The keyword is: DELIBERATE. Liken it to trying to avoid a fight with a bully. At some point you have to fight back and make a point. Rossi tried to air things out, but all it did was further upset the bully, so what was he to do?!? He surely just couldn't lay there and take the assault. Objectively, what would the critical masses have done in Rossi's shoes? The human reaction is to fight. Had Rossi kicked MM93's bike or blatantly ran into him (like MM93 has done), I would agree with the labels, but slowing down a tad to slow Marquez down in an effort to chill him out doesn't warrant that.

MotoGP » Lorenzo has 'lost respect' for title rival Rossi

juve79: How would Jorge feel if Marquez was blatantly helping rossi for the title letting him through easy then slow Jorge down and fight like nutter so you lose the championship. Easy for Jorge to say now that rd as virtual put the title in his hand
Exactly! Lorenzo would be irate if the tables were turned and it was MM93 holding him up while Rossi got away. This is a situation Lorenzo should've stayed out of because there was obviously bad blood between Marquez and Rossi ever since Assen.

MotoGP » Smith frustrated when 'support doesn't go both ways'

Blazin: Brad is rightly unhappy that Yamaha are not team players. Further, Brad is caning a year old bike, with no upgrades from Yamaha this year. Pol has had the upgrades but not Brad.
You're grossly misrepresenting the situation. Firstly, they are a satellite team, and the factory team doesn't have to share data with a non-factory supported team. Secondly, both Pol and Brad were offered the same upgrades (exhaust, etc.). Pol chose to run the exhaust, but Bradley did not. Pol did receive a newer frame after ruining his older chassis ONLY because there were no older replacements. That was a legitimate reason, and it wasn't given to him because he is somehow better than Smith or because he is factory contracted. Stop creating drama that isn't there.

MotoGP » Lorenzo calls Rossi's 'strategy' into question

I'm a Rossi fan (..and a Marquez, Pedrosa and Bradl fan) through and through, but I'm not quite sure what to make of these last few articles on Crash regarding his statements. I'm sure that he feels justified after looking at the race analysis from P.I., but it's hard to judge where he's coming from without hearing his intonation, etc. Nonetheless, I hope he takes this title.
