MotoGP » Suzi Perry: Motorsport needs Rossi, Hamilton figures

It still surprises me that we get comments about why personality and the ability to draw fans shouldn't matter in sports. EVERY sport has a Rossi or Hamilton. EVERY sportsman understands why the media is important. Why layman fans don't get that is beyond me. She makes some very valid points about Rossi and Hamilton. He is 37 years old and still competitive. That says an awful lot about his talent. Lin Jarvis echoed the same sentiment about Rossi, as have many others whose words carry much more clout than anybody here on

MotoGP » Mystery power fault for Redding, unhappy with Miller

TheRav3n: I can get SR frustrations with Jack Miller, but hey it's racing and if you can pass a rider you should it's called racing. The there's the crashing side of Miller but he'll learn eventually. So mostly whining from SR...
I more or less agree with this. Miller had a reason to fight: points! For Scott to say that Miller was fighting for no reason sounds really silly.

MotoGP » Marquez out to defend perfect record in USA

Garcia: Yeah I notice Rossi doesn't look well. He looked bitter and tense on the podium and in the post race conference was angry and wouldn't stop fidgeting. also in qatar the whole unnecessary drama he started again about Lorenzo on the racing line, it's like his nerves are on edge and he's about to explode again at any moment the question is when.
Funny that you took that from Rossi's countenance. I didn't get that impression at all. You are reading way too deeply into things. He didn't look bitter or tense, nor did he look like he was on edge. He merely looked about as equally unaffected about Marquez as Marquez did about him. Neither of them paid the other any attention.

MotoGP » Rossi aiming for Austin repeat

owlockey: Very surprising for Rossi to say that he isn't strong in the last laps of the race, one of Rossi strongest assets is his late race pace on worn/wearing tyres. Bit scary to hear
You did catch his specificity right? He said they need to improve the bike "on the current tires". The Michelin's are an unknown quantity.

MotoGP » Iannone talks Ducati ‘disaster’

Codger: Why is it automatically assumed that Jorge will win on the Ducati ? Why is it suggested that if he did then it would achieve something that Rossi couldn't ? If Jorge feels that he needs to up his street cred with the fans, then there are only two ways that he can do this...and it still might not work though. 1 ... Manage to get 'back to back' Titles that would get him something that Stoner couldn't do. 2 ... opt to ride the Ducati that Rossi was given to ride. Otherwise, if he won on the present Ducati then we would have to admit that Rossi could as well.
I agree with everything you've said. Objective people will agree too, especially with your second "ride the same Ducati Rossi rode" premise. Hecklers will act predictably.
