It's funny how people are slamming Marco for making the lunge to try and win but are praising Rea in the same post. Really?

There was a gap, Rea went for it, it ended in tears. That's racing.

it seems like most of the people commenting on this 'accident' have never cocked their leg over a race bike and had a go themselves, if there is a gap there you go for it thats why its called racing

marco ran deep which caused leon to run hot into the goddards, rea went for a gap that was there and the rest is history.

Well, all three of them made me crash as well and I fell off my armchair!!!

Anyway, these guys are all adults, know about the risks they expose themselves to and have to face each other in the aftermath. Really sorry about Leon & Marco. Funny coz I went 10-pin bowling with my sons straight afterwards, hehe...

I thought the move by Rea was far too aggressive, and he would not of got the win otherwise. Haslam was denied the win by an unfair move. If you look back to the trevious corner Rea had also made an aggressive move there, fair enough he wanted the win badly but to do it in that manner was not sporting. Big shame for Haslam.

People saying that racers should go for a gap are right. But in this case there was no gap to go for, hence the accident. Eurosport commentators/ex racers only saw that replay once at best, but if you look at it more closely the impact was strong enaugh to bounce Rea back onto racing line even though he was way too hot into that corner and if it wasnt for Haslam he would've never made it

Rea touch Haslam: thats the only true we can say,
if Rea hits without intention, all is going good,
but for me is hard to beleive that he couldnt stop before hit Haslam, i see many times, many many times, one an another to see how happen, i still feeling the same, Rea touch Haslam. much far away, difficult/impossible to know if he do conciencius or just no have option, for this everyone can say our self opinion

is not fair we hide behind others words to explain,
even if we agree or not "Haslam say Melandris fault, and Rea is a race happens" opinable "Eurosport commentarist say his Rea fault" his sincerely opinion

i like Rea, and many others, just stay with one dindt avoid i support any other who i want, and much more, everyone of them by something concret, i blame Rea, because i feel very strange about this, his declarations...and all this stupid war defending or blame one o the other...
i repeat, the only truth: Rea touch Haslam,
all beyond, circunstances, goods, bads...but without
