I see Rossi didn't make the start. Born before computers?

He certainly needs all the practice he can get.

I hope he gets at least 1 podium before they boot him out - tired of listening to his fans scream for the 1st 5 laps & then going home.

He won't be riding for the factory team next year, so effectively already kicked out. 

How many GPs did you attend to know the behaviour of the fans so well?   ;) :lol8:

Love your question TheBear. You've seen the same thing then?

Trackside 7 but i watch all other races at the pub. Be it Gauteng, Eastern Cape, Asia or Europe, the behaviour is the same.

Nah, I have never noted such behaviour, but then, I watch on TV at home.  I have yet to see a VR fan leave after 5 laps, but then, I have yet to see one arrive prior to the race!  ;)

Personally, I would not complain if I were you.  If all the VR fans ducked after 5 laps, there would be only 2 guys left in the pub, leaving all the peanuts for you and him.   >:D

Sjoe!  You almost broke my little giallo heart when I noted you had excluded me. 

Just one thing.  Is there anything other than a Rossi fan and if so, who would they be a fan of?  Donald Duck?  Minnie Mouse?

No need to mention Brad.  He should be automatic and any Saffa's #1.  Any further discussion of the other riders is a debate on who is #2.   :thumleft:

You're welcome. As the man said: BB33.

I follow(ed) JL99 - go watch his doccie (you would never pay to watch it, not so)?

1st on my list is the 1993 season.

No, I wouldn't pay to watch a doccie on JL99, but to be fair, I wouldn't pay to watch one on VR46 either.  I never disliked JL99, except when he kicked VR's arse, but that is fair, I reckon.  I like the All Blacks, except when they beat the Springboks.

Iannone has an 18 month ban. Could just be a six month ban with Covid depending on if and when the 2020 season get going. I wonder if this also bans him from the playstation races? :o

Bear, I am worried about the company seeking your company. :pot:

Han Solo should just ask this; "Where is Biaggi, Stoner, Capirossi, Edwards, Roberts, Lorenzo, Gibernau............all riders Rossi preceded, and outlasted.

Rossi is one of the greatest, and it is no coincidence you associate him with Yamaha. :deal: :thumleft: :drif: :drif: ;)
