MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


KnowNothing:
TrueFan: ...
...what an arrogant little 19 year old in Moto3 ... you're a fan...
Firstly, I'm not a fan of Miller, or any other Moto3 rider in particular, but I can see that he has talent. This story smells of a beat up to me. When you check what Miller actually said, there is nothing in it. If you are going to castigate a rider, you need to check your facts. So far, there is a letter of intent, and a negotiated but unsigned agreement. There is no detail of what the letter of intent covers, or proof of anything more than stated. They simply want clarification. Fair enough. This could be about MarcVDS and Ajo. IIRC, Ajo was the manager when Maveric Vinales was castigated after his manager (Ajo) didn't tell him about an offer that MV would have taken, because it conflicted with Ajo's wants, and MV reacted (understandably) poorly. I suggest you dumping hatred and contempt on a talented 19 year old is cowardly, and it refl

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


KnowNothing: Saying the final contract is "not signed", if that is even the case, is the ultimate cop out. Seems like he made an agreement, but suddenly when a better cash grab comes along he tells the people he committed to, to stuff it. C'mon, it's 6 pages, so I think even a 19 year old could probably muddle through it. Just because it may hold up in court, does not mean it would (or should) hold up in the court of public opinion, unless people are morally misguided hypocrites.
What high minded waffle... Your "court of public opinion", in this case, is lead by one the very same morally misguided hypocrites who hasn't even checked facts before jumping to a hasty conclusion that doesn't stand scrutiny. It took me seconds to find the website and check the claims. You were obviously too lazy, and yet your opinion is unequivocal.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


KnowNothing: Morality aside, would you not take notice of this as a potential future team? It would make me think twice, and double check that my contract was incredibly airtight. Just more big egos behaving badly, a common plight in the sports of today.
Check your facts before making such sweeping statements. See below from the AJO Motorsports website. VR broke a signed contract with Michelin, Do you condemn him? I smell the strong odour of hypocracy here...The joke is, when you check the facts, Miller hasn't even threatened to break a contract, and you're rallying up a lynch mob.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


It's on ajo.fi... Interview with Jack Miller: ”I am 100% focused on this season and nothing else” 12.06.2014 / AJO Motorsport, Team Red Bull KTM "...I cannot afford to think about anything else other than this season. I wish this was something only spoken about after the season ends, although I know that this isn’t possible. But all that is my manager’s job, not mine. I only know that I have nothing decided for next year. I have no contract for the future, so we are completely open and free to negotiate.” Note "...it's my manager's job"

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


KnowNothing: Why does this not surprise me. Title should read: "Mouthy brat thinks contract doesn't apply to him."
You're right. No professional motorcycle racer would ever break their contract, because a contract is a contract, and their word is their bond. Unless it's 2008, and it's only a highly preferential tyre contract with the biggest tyre supplier, with a supplier that had provided unparalleled support to the same rider. There are better ways to do these things, and judging from the press release, either Miller didn't get that he had a binding contract, or, his manager ought to have explained the situation and controlled the PR better. Riders always want to maximise their opportunities. Nothing wrong with that, but it can always be handled better. That's what managers are for.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


mrfill:
Insidejob: Why would Jack Miller say he has no contract for the future if he has? Maybe his manager didn't explain the contract to him. There's not enough info to pass judgement here.
Possibly ...
"because he he's focussed on this year, and it's his manager's job." ...fixed up your slip of the brain. You can dislike the kid if you choose, but you should check your facts before you make accusations.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


Garbodp: Just my opinion.... MarcVDS is a solid Moto2 team with an eye on moving up to MotoGp. With all the changes about to happen in 2016 It makes sense to have the backing of such an entity. Even MM spent 2 years on the Moto2 circuit.... It can't hurt. Besides didn't Gabor Talmasci jump from a 125 to the premier class with little success? I know different era ( 2 strokes), but maybe a bit of patience may get J Miller better opportunities.
Absolutely agree. It would seem to be a path more likely to bring success than stepping straight into MotoGP...

MotoGP » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal


Tetley:
jorgebest: atleast i am going to buy the motorcycles which he is going to promote
Purely with the aim of creating envy, I have sat on the actual R1 which Yam gave VR to use while he was living in London. AND i was shown the logbook for the bike with VR46's name as first and only keeper. And I have a photo of me on that bike. My bum has never been so honoured.
I'd be green with envy if you rode it and pulled a minger for the camera! Otherwise, it's just pretty cool.
