It pales into insignificance if you saw the incident where Checa knocked off McCormick, breaking his neck amongst other injuries!

He was only unlapping himself as well, not even lickely to get near any points!!

Saw nothing wrong with the Melandri incident.

Melanies a loose canon. Used to like him until he didn't want his team mate to beat him so took a lunge which was never getting pulled off. As for his annoying other half she gets on me nerves. As for checa takin out the other guy 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Melandri is fast gaining a reputation for avoidable incidents that take others out, Just ask his team mate. To balance it out the Checa of old who made silly mistakes is showing himself again.

Italian league racing, Italians are "supposed" to win races, and can do no wrong, only reason this is getting discussed is because it so happens the Althea team is also Italian and Ducati carry clout - ask Guintoli, or others Marco has helped into the dirt.

Guintoli's been getting the crap end of other's bad passes all year. Haslam is no angel. I seem to remember a terrible attempt on Haslam's part to pass Guintoli at Imola earlier this year, forcing both of them off track. Just goes to show how much these guys are pushing it, great racing IMHO, much better then the crap MotoGP has been putting out for the past 5 years.

So is it a GP thing, these two appearing at your front wheel? Carlos was having a moment, if you look close, the last thing he needed was a nudge, and guess who was behind to oblige!
MotoGP needs to ditch carbon brakes and make it more interesting, like WSB.
And how comes the 600's with tread for flip sakes, had no tyre problems. These tyres are spoiling the show a bit in the big class.
