MotoGP » Hayden hunts final MotoGP memory at Phillip Island

reinmacre: @Realist Here is why they owe him. 1999 AMA Supersport Championship, 2002 AMA Superbike Championship, 2006 Motogp Championship, which is three more than Pedrosa, Dovi, Crutchlow, Redding, etc have combined for their loyal employment. Manufacturers like championships.
That still doesn't mean they owe him anything. Some people have made some valid "personal points" as to why they feel Honda owes him something, but from a business perspective, Honda owes him nothing...... ..just like Yamaha owes Rossi or Lorenzo nothing and Honda owes Marquez and Pedrosa nothing.

MotoGP » Hayden hunts final MotoGP memory at Phillip Island

reinmacre: Honda owes Nick that.
Ummm, why?!? Why do they "owe" him anything? They employed him for multiple years and paid him to ride their HRC bike back in the mid 2000's. He was paid to ride their Open spec bike as well. What should Honda be indebted to him for? It's about as silly as saying that Ducati owes him something for riding their bike. If anything, Nicky should be indebted to Ducati and Honda for giving him a lifeline when his career at the front was effectively over. My inquiry is genuine, and it's the same question that I'd pose regardless of who the rider is. You can't be owed anything when you're paid for your services.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I'm the fastest, bad luck is costing me

Insidejob: So many comments, the majority of which are either disparaging of Jorge or in praise of Vale or both. True enthusiasts of the sport realize it's not about the supposed persona, charisma, charm and superior intelligence of a particular rider. It's about racing.
Actually TRUE fans of a sport realize that there is more to sports than sport. Personalities are important to ANY sport, and that is what people buy into (and what increases earning potential). Skill is important, but is often secondary (hence why a lot of loser players, riders, drivers, etc. have some really loyal fans). It's not JUST about the sport. People get emotionally invested, and emotional investment transcends defined borders.

WSBK » van der Mark welcomes Hayden WSBK arrival

Neal: A bottom tier Motogp rider is going to smoke a top tier wsbk guy.
You need to temper such statements. You might be in for a surprise. Melandri wasn't even a bottom tier guy in GP (in fact he had a pretty darn good 125cc, 250cc and GP career up until his Aprilia GP ride in 2015), and he didn't necessarily smoke the WSBK paddock. Hayden is not going to enter WSBK and cream everybody. He might have competitive moments, but mark my words, he will have a hard time getting on the podium. The fact that there are only 10 riders confirmed for the 2016 season makes that even more troubling.
