Insidejob again ... Watch this and you'll see that Marc accelerates quite hard and drives his bike into Rossi's leg. https://youtu.be/w9M-e_DFFtY Regardless...The old boy acted daft in what he did, that's not really up for debate, but Marc acted weirdly as well.

Insidejob, even without counseling it doesn't take much nouse to work out that there wasn't a kick. Even Rossi, the veritable GOAT can't bend the rules of physics. Marc withdrew the accusation soon after he made it when he saw Hondas data. The data showed that Marc fell over because he accelerated and inadvertantly  ( I think ) drove his front brake lever into the back of the pensioners leg. People are way overestimating Rossi's strength in being able to overcome the mass and weight and inertia of Marc and his bike, which, after all, was a leaning towards Rossi's bike at a much greater angle.     But....you already know all that........ :)

So by attacking me am I to assume that you don't want answer the question ? You always resort to name calling and throw false accusations when you feel on the spot. As far as I can see the remainig Rossi fans on here seem to be a calm, straight, 'open to his faults' people. The ones that you direct your constant, multi-worded rants at are where ? I too remember the 'fans' that were here 10 years ago, both for AND against the old fert, but it puzzles me that you are using them as an excuse/reason to make us read your oft repeated rants now. Some would say, sinking to their level. If they offended you much then....why are you copying them now ?

James Whitham puts it very well & graphically in a way even a non-rider can associate with (if not fully comprehend) - "imagine driving up the motorway at 70mph, then opening the door and jumping out!" Ok, in truth not every crash hurts - you can get really lucky - but mostly they hurt.  It's more a question of how much it hurts and how long it hurts for.  These guys are a different breed - crashing is normal and "just another day at the office".

@ SWANN.  Seeing as you address me directly :)  I'm having way too much of a good time generally to be a Hater of anything, or anyone (its a very self-destructive emotion anyhow - the object of such hate wouldn't give a damn anyway - only a fool "hates"!).  And to "hate" a celebrity I've never met and who doesn't know I exist - would be plain dumb (funny that we see quite a lot of Rossi Fans spitting venom about JL99, CS27, MM93 etc).  I've had a lot more exposure to Trolls that infest MotoGP threads by a factor of 1000's, than to Valentino Rossi - and I'm thankful that I don't get to meet such people in real life (why I stopped wasting money & time to be among the lowlifes at Grand Prix Trackside). The atmosphere gets tainted and spoilt by Fanatical Trolls (be they trackside or on Fora) for sure - with luck the tide will turn and the Trolls will recede when the object of their devotion retires, and Grand Prix will become a more pleasant environment all-around. I "live" in the world.  I "post" on MotoGP threads, because I can, and I choose to.  Perhaps I'm also a stubborn git who doesn't see why he should kow-tow to taunts and threats and insults, and is prepared to wait out the shitstorm. Believe me, or don't.  Doesn't matter.

And so do you. Are you a Rossi hater or just bitter?
