Oh ****! This is going to start a whole load of stupid excuses.

Remember when metal fatigue first made it into the media and people started blaming it for everything? Now we'll have fans blaming every unforced error on tarmac bubbles.

hey group of genious, didn't you all notice that in first 2 laps of race 1, 4 riders crashed in that corner, not considering aitchison that decided to take off in the same corner in the warm up lap?? maybe something wrong there really was in that corner ??

I think it was actually the Powerpuff Girl. Blossom and Buttercup weren't available for comment. :p

@ Fabbio

Could it ACTUALLY have been careless errors on WET track?! Morais also went off in Supersport. But ALL THE OTHER RIDERS MANAGED TO GET THROUGH JUST FINE. If there is a problem I wouldn't be shocked, as these things happen with tracks, but everyone else managed. It could EVEN HAVE BEEN TYRES?!

Is this a competition to see who can comeout with the most macho bull-schyt in denial of the evidence?

There's one maybe two sane posts above this one.

Sure Melandri has a reputation to rival Biaggi's for finding reasons why nothing that ever happens is his fault. But it doesn't mean he's always lying, just that you have to be more caustious about believing him than riders with a history of telling things straight.

If its independently reported as a straight forward matter of fact there was already concern, investigation & action being asked for why are you denying it?

I swear living in the world of reality looks to be just too much for some people around here.
