Yeah saw that little panty rant. Rossi had the inside and kept a tight line, Pedrosa went inside and then pushed wide on Rossi, same corner I think. Much more aggressive but either is a bit like complaining about someone roosting you in an offroad race

I just glad that Marques has learned to keep his cool from the last race! I think that he will take the championship with his 42 points lead....he just should keep on relaxing and finish the remaining races like he did!

I also think you tend to be calmer if you already had 2 crashes during the previous 2 days' practises leading up to the race...

Of course Lorenzo will complain, his season has been terrible. He experienced a loss of form and confidence, he is very much the number 2 in the team (warranted or not) and his team mate's fans hate him because he is Spanish like Marques and the reigning world champion. He was running well but of course Rossi was running better so he had a frustrating race and got drawn into saying stuff he should not have.

I really find it amazing that the original "moangat" Rossi can come with a completely illogical conspiracy theory last year and almost no comments on this forum. Lorenzo complains about the aggressive pass from his team mate and everyone jumps on it.

This blinkered view of Rossi fans is sad but also entertaining At least the few remaining Lorenzo fans wonít attack Rossiís family, due to some imagined slight which exists in the riderís head only.

I wish Rossi would move to Suzuki. Id like to see what the bikes are capable of in his hands.

No I'm not not, just feel sorry for the guy. Having Rossi as a team mate can not be easy, where have you ever heard of a team getting rid of the reigning world champion.

I do think Lorenzo may still have a few fans left, although even the commentators were making fun of how few supporters he has left on Sunday.

I think it might look different at Aragon.

Rossi fans are not Rossi fans because he moans more or less than anyone else, they are fans because he is the best. You can argue, but not with NINE world championships.

Nothing wrong with aggression in sport - that's what sport is for  :thumleft:

And the elite in any sport are gonna be the most aggressive - that's how they got there in the first place.

To be honest, I don't think they really moan about it. What they're expressing gets lost in translation, they're all speaking in a 2nd language.

Except for Crutchlow, he came across as a real knob when he won his first race, calling the rest of them wimps. He went from hero to zero in 5 seconds flat ........................ can't blame translation for that one.
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

My opinion of him went right out the door when he said that. Just because he supposedly made a better tyrechoice then them they are now wimps. Weird really weird. :eek7:

 :lol8: I love listening to Crutchlow.
He doesn't often get an opportunity to speak to international press, but when he does he is always entertaining. But, if I was a fellow rider I would have had a word with him later...
