MotoGP » Problem solving ‘only goal’ for Redding


alanw5293: Honda sacked Bradl and Bautista because of poor performances in 2014 having served their apprenticesh
Ok, so what does that have to do with Redding? Absolutely nothing! Bautista's performance was poor relative to his 2013 year, and I already addressed that in my previous response. The same applies to Bradl (crashing, etc.). Bautista went from 5th in 2012, 6th in 2013.......to 11th in 2014 (..and half the points scored relative to 2012/2013). When you achieve significantly diminishing results, your employer takes notice. I'd wager that had he put the bike in 5th-7th, he might still be on a factory RCV (as would Bradl most likely). Redding is on his way to getting his factory RCV pulled too.

Furthermore alanw5293, you're quick to spout off nonsense about me being irrational and having nothing of substance to add, but all of the delusional Redding fans all comment from the same vantage point: "Redding could'a, should'a, would'a....if he had [insert random bike or team here]". All of it is supposition, emotion and fantasy, yet you call deducing his placement in the GP hierarchy based on his career long results "lacking rational thought"!??!??! Dude, come on. Now some of you are saying he needs to be on a Yamaha to "show his true potential". When does it end? When do some finally say, "Well, he's good, but he's not good enough to run at the front in this GP climate"?

alanw5293: Like I said in a previous thread..Scott was in a team last year with a Satellite Honda and a underpowered Production Honda on which Scott made Bautista made look rather embarrassing on several occasions..
What??? The ONLY reason Bautista looked bad last year is because he crashed SEVEN times. It had nothing to do with Redding's performance. Even with 7 crashes (read: 7 non scores), he STILL beat Redding. Bautista was also inside of the top 10 of all but a couple of the races that he finished (and he netted a few top 6's and a 3rd place podium). In 2013, Bautista was netting 4th's and 5th's half of the season, and 6th's, 7th's for most of the other races. He rode the bike well, as did Bradl. I know, I know, you'll say..."but the team Realist! The Team"....and I'll say, "Redding is over-hyped big time".

matt liddy: Firstly yes, Scott is underperforming given his skill level, and the equipment level and he is always keen to point this out. anyone that thinks a great rider can just jump on and spank it without a team giving him what he wants is deluded. In his open year (with an experienced team) he beat everyone else on the same bike including ex WC Hayden (in the same team).people need to learn the difference between REASONS and EXCUSES
Your FIRST statement is all that matters. He is under-performing for his equipment level. It all ends there! Using Hayden as the temp check isn't saying much. I like Hayden, but it's not like he's really that much to handle on the grid. We know the difference between reasons and excuses.

alanw5293: Realist: 2014 Scott rode an underpowered Production Honda on which he impressed Gresini and Honda...Bautista who had been on the Satellite bike for two previous seasons didn't. Scott is underperforming.no question,but where Scott is concerned you have no rational thoughts or comments.
You are not being rational. I look at his career results and deduce from that. THAT is called rationale! Bautista DID impress until 2014 (5th behind JL, DP, CS, and AD is impressive and 6th behind MM, JL, DP, VR and CC is impressive). Those are the facts, and you can't argue with facts. I'm not anti-Redding. I just think his fans are delusional and he hyped himself up and realized that he can't live up to the hype he created. We all know his circumstances (i.e...team excuse that some continue to purport), but that doesn't change the opinion that I have of him.
