great part of the article

Aside from his popularity I wonder about the benefit of the doubt given to Rossi by fans as well. It seems for a Rossi fan there is no grey area. And indeed, for casual fans of racing, Rossi will more often than not get the benefit of the doubt without argument. For example, and I offer these without judgement, think of Jerez 2005, Laguna 2008, Motegi 2010 and Jerez 2011. Now, imagine if you will, the reaction to incidents in those four races if Rossi had been in the position of the other guy involved? It’s worth thinking about. Not about who was right or wrong, just simply the shift in public reaction. And there’s a solid scientific reason for that, which I’ll get to.

In my case, I like Rossi, I like Ducati, I like motorcycles in general and I like MotoGP.

That being said, they don't pay my bills and at the end of the day I sleep like a baby if Rossi wins or not. Some people just take it to personal (Rossi fans or not)...

bronx tale

Sonny: Mickey Mantle? That's what you're upset about? Mantle makes $100,000 a year. How much does your father make? If your dad ever can't pay the rent and needs money, go ask Mickey Mantle. See what happens. Mickey Mantle don't care about you. Why care about him?


yet you will see how many come out of the woodwork to attack me. they have no posts on here except the rossi posts and you never hear from them again.

just like the article says nails it.

Now what you don't get is that not everyone coming out to attack you (at least initially). If fact, it is you who are mostly absurd, erotic, and only "seeing" to your views and when someone is in favor of Rossi or Even Ducati, you really do act stupid and disrespectful. You like Casey? Great You like BMW HP4? Great. Same goes to who likes Rossi and who likes Ducati. I mean last time I checked we are on a Ducati forum and not BMW HP4 site.

Whether you "think" is right about something is irrelevant. It is more about you respecting other people's view, opinion, and as a person in general.

I believe most will accept and agree (including me) About the "flaws" of Rossi's past and mistakes he has done and not going too well with in others cases.

You really do have the right to hate Rossi and Ducati for whatever reasons you have...just dont be a prick to those who have other preferences.

So in conclusion. Causation and correlation is that because you attack people who see it differently than you, so they are returning the favor.

young r go through any rossi post i have there is at least one guy on there that has very little posts and you will never ever hear from them again.

perfect example the rossi tyres and some stats post. look at how many "newer" members there are. Im not talking about the banter i have with established members on rossi (thats where you would fall) as i dont care if you curse me out as we have had many conversations or back and fourths. im talking about the Rossi fan that joins specifically to comment on that post that you never hear from again.

hell im not only the goat forum poster i bring this site new members all the time.

perfect example purfuera just look at the post. 4 posts total. what i love though is poor pura with only 4 posts not only knows im a loser lol, he also knows im not a fan of motogp cause i dont speak spanish. alas i suspect its an old friend VAST because hes the only guy i have on block and dont see his messages. im in that guys head so bad its amazing.

ok fair enough about the "newer" members. People do come out of nowhere to ask for Shop Manuals but you never heard or seen them contribute to the forum in any way.
