still winning points he is basically assured of a top 4 finish every race man you rossi fans have skulls 10 ft thick. he is not and will never be competitive again. he wont beat maverick not even close he cant beat marquez. jesus marquez has 2 dnf thats a 3rd of the races not completed and still has basically the same amount of points.

well carmelo said that he will expand the field for rossi. why not he already tried to manufacture maverick losing with tire 070.

yamaha racing knows they have their number 1 rider it was jlo now its maverick. the rossi thing is a way to try and make money not win races.

question to you rossi fans seriously all jokes aside. lets pick another sport any sport that you are a fan of in this case ill pick basketball.

did you want jordan to stick around in a wizards jersey or remember him with the shot over the utah player i think it was Russel.
hockey gretsky
baseball say micky mantle at the end. the list goes on.
how about Ali getting his head bashed in at the end this is whats going on now. we have been hearing it since 2010 then you gave him a pass for the ducati years ok fine then 2013 hes back. its now 2017 how does it not sink in

Regarding Rossi, how can anyone say he is done? Will he win the 10th title? Prob not unfortunately, but MAYBE. Look at his results

2016 = 2nd place
2015 = 2nd place
2014 = 2nd place
2013 = 4th place (1st year back on Yamaha from Ducati)

How can anyone say he is done when he finished 2nd in MotoGP the last 3 years? At a minimum he is the 2nd most competitive person in the world the last 3 years right?
while it is almost certain that 26 is there because of family connections who would do better than him on the repsol? crutchlow? miller? rabat? come on all are not pulling their weight although crutchlow just signed 2 more years with lcr.
fact is miller 3 years were a failure rabat will be gone and crutchlow failed on every machine he has been on tech 3 ducati. only 2 guys have crashed more than crutchlow that is iaonne and davies. so if not pedrosa who else?

I guess you have to be fair at some point. Rossi is on a Factory bike. He is not "Factory bike" material. Ok. Well Lorenzo is on a "Factory bike". Maybe he needs to go as well. If Pedrosa slips back to where he has been, he needs to go. So basically we have MM and MV in the top spots. That was supposed to be "the series" then we have the rest of the field. So let's put Zarco on VRs bike. Now what? Three way battle for 1st? (Assuming the Ducati wins were circumstancial) Who is the poor sap in 4th place every race? Might as well just have an A,B and C group. MM,MV,JZ in the A group. The other Honda and the two Ducati's in the B group and all the dreamers (sans disaster at the front) in the C group. This whole factory bike thing does have some merit however I think we can all agree that the "Factory bikes" are two Honda's,two Yamaha's and two Ducati's and that they have all had their share of riders who were "not competitive". My point is that the "factory ride" is not a guaranteed podium. I think MM is the best guy on the grid. He is also the most costly rider to keep on a bike. I can't imagine the weekend bill for keeping him on machinery.

28 points separate the top 5 riders with 11 races to go. Still a lot of meat left on the bone this season.
