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

Tetley: Bad luck my arce ! The telling issue is not so much what JLo says, but why he feels he needs to say it. He's feeling threatened. He's feeling insecure. He's feeling frustrated. He's fearing losing his self-awarded status as fastest rider in the Team. His proud and intense ego is getting bruised. And why should this be so ? The answer is that somehow, in a way few of us understand, VR has got into JLo's head, just as he did with Gibernau and Biaggi and everyone else who challenged the GOAT. VR is dismantling JLo's mental fortitude and causing JLo to seek reasons why he can't out-race or out-wit his nemesis team mate. JLo is doing everything he knows but his ego won't allow him to admit Rossi is cleverer, so blaming bad luck is JLo’s only defence to take the onus off himself. JLo may be a little bit faster on his day, but Rossi is smarter every day.
This is a very honest assessment. Great post.

MotoGP » Rossi: Title calculations irrelevant, focus on Australia

Codger: Realist......Pretty good summing up on your part, I doubt that even if someone doesn't like Rossi that they could deny what you've said.
I agree. They have to admit that all of their "predictions" haven't really come to fruition where Rossi is concerned. IF he wins this 10th title, he will have done everything that every detractor said that he couldn't do. Even if he fails to claim the #1 spot come Valencia, you can't deny that he put in a stellar run until the end.

MotoGP » Official: Nicky Hayden swaps MotoGP for WSBK

It does annoy me sometimes that people think Hayden is the only hard worker. All of those riders work hard. I don't see anything significantly different in NH's work ethic than I do any other rider. Sure, Hayden has a likable personality, but that doesn't mean he works any harder. With that said, I'll be keen to watch his every move in WSBK next year. I'm eager to see if he goes strong from the first green light of the season.
