Disgraceful move by Seeley on Michael Dunlop in the second supersport race and then an equally disgraceful and ignorant response when asked about it afterwards.

Nudging someone into a gravel trap is one thing, nudging them to with a few yards of a solid stone wall is something else.

Lost all respect for the guy asboth a racer and a person today.

I agree, bumping bars comes under the category of hard but fair on a short circuit with huge run-offs but is not acceptable on the roads.

Seeley was dour faced and miserable all day, despite 3 wins and 3 podiums. Hector Neill wasn't much better with his graceless response to Michael Rutter's win in the Superstock race.

Connor and Guy were both in the same group as Rutter, and I bet Hector would not have been complaining if they had won in similar circumstances. What happened to Guy anyway. Thought he was passed fit to continue racing.

our wee ally is a lunatic. the man had his mind set on beating philip's 5 ive never been as glad to see micheal dunlop winning the first supersport race the lad walked all over seely the wee suzuki had nothing on the honda!! the only way seely was to win was to play dirty sure this is team taz the only team in the north of ireland. hector & co should be ashamed of the way they ride and react to getting beat. well done team wilson craig true sportsmen

Seeley is the most overrated BSB rider probably of all time, is moderately good in the wet, if it's dry he's usually nowhere. Considering his status, he seems quite arrogant as well

seeley is a dirty rider!!!! good job he only rides in nw200 or he would kill someone,that type of riding is not for road racing thats because seeley is not a roadracer he only rides nw200 cause it is like a circuit and hes greedy for the money, william dunlop is twice the lad seeley will ever be

Did any of you guys actually see this incident? as from the crappy BBCNI web feed I couldn't make out a great deal TBH. Did think Seeley's ''I'm not British Supersport Champion for nothing'' comment did make him seem a touch arrogant though, never thought he was like that.

You couldnt like seeley with that arrogant attitude. He has no personality what so ever. Like a school kid in a huff when he was beat. The move on Willam Dunlop what a disgrace - very nearly put him in the wall at church. Rutter winning from the second group made my day. TAS team response was a joke.

love the fact that some of u seem to think your so clued up on road racing yet u cant tell the difference between Michael and William Dunlop....two of the sports biggest stars, the latter being the one who Seeley actually had the altercation with. Hard move i agree but better to see a racer fight for a win than settle for second.
