Jonny is a real racer and you can't blame him for going for an opportunity when he sees one. Of course if he didn't have a go and just followed guys around people on here would say he's boring and is afraid to have a crack. When Rossi used to punt people out of the way it was called entertainment but when someone else races hard it's called dangerous. The amount of double standards on this site is out of control.

Agreed... Some people need to go and watch some motorcycle racing from yesteryear when they used to knock each other off deliberately! I'm pretty sure these are the same people who moan that Crutchlow/Pedrosa et al don't try hard enough!

Hard to take seriously. The critics only come out of the woodwork when Rea - god forbid - makes a mistake. They were very quiet when he was doing well.

It's a bit sad when people are poised to criticise someone before they make an error, and then jump in and say 'well that's another example that they are rubbish...'

What's with all the crap about Jonathan Rea "shoving" riders out of the way? Jonathan does what any good rider should - go for it! This is not a gentlemens excuse me for Gods sake, it is split second decision making and the sort of thing that either works or unfortunately doesn't - a risk the rider has got to take. W.S.B. racing is the very best at the moment because it is close, because it is nerve racking, because it is exciting and has us on the edge of our seatsf! It is about taking risks and Jonathan Rea is one of the best!!

Carl Foggarty has actually admitted he has deliberately tried to knock other riders off!! Imagine if somebody these days said that in their post race interview!!! Racing then was fantastic,it was truly great to watch, but these days it's as if the Health & Safety brigade are trackside as anything that involves a bit of contact is deemed dangerous and dirty!! Get real, this is motorbike racing!!!!

yes, i blame Rea, even when i like him because in my opinion that "error" in Donington was deliverated, just for this i start to think bad about him,
i remember when Melandri hits Alzamora in 125cc, Capirossi hit Harada in 250cc in the shame year? 1998, to the "best of histoy" (not for me) Rossi in the embarrased needing to push out Gibernau in 2005, Simoncelli many times between 2007-2009 250cc... and i ever blame them exactly for that, i see many races with awesome riders that no need to push out nobody, tough riders, top riders...i see bikes competition since i remember...i dont need to see past, i lived it like you

dont missunderstand me, i dont do comparison, just examples of my memories,

Rea is an awesome rider, he use to show skills ever,
but he never do nothing like that untill Donington, for sure part (and maybe most part) of that guilty was Melandri, but not the only...
