Let me get the next post out of the way:
Rossi injured in training this is not good. It reminds me of the time when I use to race and trained Motocross. Had some serious injuries so I've been there.
By the way I'm thinking of selling a my pristine tricolore for 100k. It's really the best tricolore ever.

well since he will be good i can make jokes now. wouldnt it be great if MM asked him if he were having problems with his shoulder. then say your ambition outweighs your talent. the closing remark should be is this going to be your excuse for not winning this year.

Well I don't know if he needs something that drastic for an excuse. He could just say that he is old and not competitive. The problem with Rossi is he is just riding well enough to give his fans the impression that he can still win which is certainly more than 80% of the field will ever give their fans. Look at all the Stoner fans who get to watch him go fishing at an age when Rossi was crushing people or Lorenzo fans that are now rooting for a win by MM NV or DP because that's the only way they are ever going to hear the Spanish national anthem at a MotoGP race. Barring permanent injury like Stoners emotional breakdown, the old man will probably race uncompetitively well into his 40s on a factory team making more $$ than the rest of the field laughing all the way to the bank. That's what happens when you make the guys who run the sport you are in more money than most of the other riders combined. Rossi is a Dorna rider. He's just publicly sponsored by Factory Yamaha and probably for as long as he wants to be.

Bummer for the championship - hopefully he can recover enough to be competitive in Mugello.

Rossi win in at Mugello while injured his fanbase would shit yellow. Would be a great show....

Oh man please do not use Rossi and "competitive" in the same sentence. You're going to give Mark a cerebral meltdown of biblical proportion and then we're going to have to look at stats all day. Rossi is only riding to keep Dorna bosses in Aramni.

its you that are still saying he is competitive. Most know unless you are a drone that rossi has no shot at winning the championship.
Just need you to accept that rossi as long as he has a factory ride will always be in the hunt because of machinery not skill.

seriously put hector barbera on the factory yamaha he comes in top 4. case closed.

yet barbera like rossi wouldnt be a factor for the championship.

almost forgot i backed up with STATS you just use big vocabulary yet come off slightly retarded trying to do it.
