WSS » PTR boss: Sofuoglu penalty not harsh enough


Simon Buckmaster: In my opinion the penalty was simply nowhere near harsh enough for such an outright dangerous move. It is not the first time with Kenan either...

Keenan rides around like he's special, like he deserves the win and everybody should get out of his way. I just don't see where he thinks he's better then other riders. Granted he can ride a 600 but he completely failed at the big boy class (1000's). His ego has surpassed his skill, this punishment is a joke, he will eventually take someone out with his childish antics. This reminds of a spoiled rotten child who lashes out when he doesn't get his way.

"Oooooh it's sooo dangerouuuuuuss !! And it's not good sportsmanship !!"

Where were you when,

Stoner punched another rider on the back during quali,

Marquez barges into people more often than anyone,

Rea dived out and wiped 2 BMW riders in the last corner,

Capirossi almost deliberately ran into side of a championship challenger

Rossi barged Gibernau out of the way

Shall i count more ? In this instance there wasn't even contact to begin with. But why were the ones mentioned above not subject to crucifiction and Kenan is ?

Let me tell you why. I've seen this before. It's almost exactly the same way the british press tried to villainize Schumacher back in the day. Of course the public was more than inclined to look for one. He was a great driver the light burning the brightest among his peers, yet he was flawed, like the rest of us. All it took was crossing the wrong guy once (Dill) and BANG ! There's your villain. Of course Schumacher tried the very same move again and some other moves too which were very questionable. It just fueled the fire and cemented his much desired villain status - desired by none other than the press and wannabe witch hunters of course.

I know for sure I will get a lot of disagrees,
But forget was way, way off of the racing line coming upto the next left hander, leaving supaglu out in the middle of the track as they appear to be side by side,
I think supaglu was mad to do what he did, but really badly wanted to get back over to the right to take the line into the next bend.
Not defending the action, but to call it a headbutt is a joke
