To each his own, but i think people just woould ve appreciated you being a bit more vocal about it, mate. Not judging, as i do believe Sykes of course has been affected by this. It could ve been him. Now get on the job and win the championship for you, for the team and for Jumbo. All the best Sykesy

Totally agree with Tom's comments.

How you deal with this situation is a totally private thing, just because he's not throwing his arms in the air and wailing does not equate to not caring.

It's his coping mechanism.

Take no notice of the critics Tom, those of us in the sport understand exactly what you are feeling and those who matter know you have compassion for Joan's situation, it is hard but the sport continues regardless of anyone's misfortune... there are too many armchair critics in this sport who simply do not understand how it works...

Totally agree with Tom, how he chooses to deal with this is entirely up to him and no-one else. If he chose to speak out about it, he would no doubt be criticised for something.

No-one else should dictate your reactions, so I don't doubt that he is frustrated that people feel they have a right to tell him how he should feel and what he should say.

And anyway, Kawasaki have maintained discretion throughout this situation in an effort to be sensitive. Some may say they aren't 'caring', I call it decorum to show respect for another man's private plight.

"Crash: Your now getting as bad as some posters, you know it will incite a frenzy of abuse, may be someone should be editing your content"

If it incites a frenzy of abuse then it says more about the posters, rather the website. Something like this can and probably will spark debate (as many articles do), but if some people cannot articulate their comments without abuse and vitriol, then that is their issue.

How someone chooses to deal with a terrible event is up to them, its their business. By criticising TS over this, all these critics are doing is making a bad situation worse. What could be a better tribute than getting on with the job of trying winning races..??

Bam Bam. Your not Crashes editor are you,seems to me that this is a ploy to get more posters arguing, i do not understand why otherwise, this should not be a topic for discussion, because it is a personal matter.

That's your opinion, which is fair enough, but I live in hope that people don't read articles to instinctively start an argument. If the media reacted like that with everything that prompts discussion, then nothing would ever be written.

The buck stops with those that comment, not the article itself. Everyone is in charge of their actions, they aren't forced to comment.
