WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation


Talentfan the Biaggi thing is totally different situation compared to the thread. Biaggi was blackballed by Honda for his remarks/actions related to the bike and team. Honda applied pressure to the other teams to not let him race for them. Out of respect for the giant Honda corp all the teams complied hence why Biaggi had to look at WSB for work he got when he spent a year off the bike like you noted. In this situation, Melandri works for Aprilia and if they said give a place up for his teammate who has a chance to win the title for the team then he should have complied. He should have been told to do the same in a few past races as well coming down the stretch of the season. He's a punk and should be punted from the team.

WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation


Talentfan I totally agree with your comments regarding how it would have been handled by Gigi or should have been handled now and your description regarding team/ownership. If your boss told you to do something and you didn't do it I'm sure you'd get in trouble if not fired depending on how egregious the act. As the goal and prestige of winning a Championship is the main purpose of being in the series then I'd say they should be very angry at Melandri.

WSBK » Melandri: Win in race two is fair compensation


Melandri is an i d i ot, I think that many of his overtakes are dangerous and showing such disrespect to his team by not allowing his teammate get the points needed to help close the gap is not right. I understand it's competition but he works for the team and if the team/management told him to do something he should do it (unless they asked him to knock someone off in that case he shouldn't do that). I'm not a fan of team orders in the earlier part of a season but as the season is winding down and your teammate has a chance to win the championship and you're out of championship contention then you owe it to the team to do whatever is necessary to help. That's why it's called a team. Melandri is a very selfish and disrespectful rider. If I was team management I'd not let him race the next race or two and really consider not having him on a future team.

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’


Even with Rossi's crash at the last race I'm seeing a more competitive Rossi which I'm sure is partly due to improvements to the bike and to his increasing confidence. While of course as a fan I'd like to see him win all the remaining races but I'll be happy if he continues on being competitive and fighting for the win at each race even if he comes in 2nd. I'd also like to see him not make mistakes like the last race. That said, I'm glad he's okay. Go Rossi!!!

MotoGP » Rossi: Fight for second ‘getting interesting’


Agree with Insidejob's note of Tsuji's comments that Rossi is motivated and that his performance is better than Yamaha expected. Also agree and give credit for modifying his style to be able to keep up with the Jlos and Marquez's. But disagree with the concept that the talent is greater in Pedorsa, Jlo and Marquez. Rossi has beat all the competition with exception of Marquez yet (in a championship sense). While age does play a minor factor I think two things are not given enough consideration and they are that the Yamaha especially last year and first 3/4 of this year wasn't close enough to the Hondas and secondly is that Rossi has had to rebuild his confidence that took a beating at Ducati and I think he had to get over the mental scars from his accident, injury and his friend's death. I think not enough credit is given to the new and ever increasing technology used in bikes to make riders improve much faster than when the technology was less or didn't exist on Motogp motorbikes.

WSBK » Foret confirms plans to quit WSBK, WSS


A talented rider that should have had more championships. Maybe he should stayed in WSS as it he was good on those bikes. Not everyone makes the transition to superbikes because of the power, weight and format of that series. Sounds like his new endeavors will make the transition to retirement a better one. Hope him lots of luck and success.
