grayzx7r you obvously jelsous as JT has more talent and skill in his little toe than you could ever dream of having ok he hasn't set the world alight in GP's but wasn't exactly being embarased by the other guys and always last was he.

dude do you even ride or are you just a sad keyboard warrior that has noting better to do than come out with stupid comments on websites and slag people off just to try and justify your sad insignifcint excistance.

I totally agree with what you say about how uncompetitive motogp is at the moment & if we don't have a UK rider in the top class next year then I just wont see the point in watching...even though JT isn't doing well this year I still watch & will him on hoping he'll do well! Last season he was on a bike with a bit of 'flex' & a longer wheelbase & it obviously suited him, cos he very nearly took pole at his first ever attempt, but this new short wheelbase, stiffer bike, just doesn't suit his squaring off corners WSBK style & Vermuelen is suffering this same problem & doing worse than JT! I 'm hoping JT does go back to WSBK cos its a really competitive series with lots of aggressive riding, which suits him, the reason he's not liked by motogp riders is cos they say he's too aggressive! I think JT knows he's going to WSBK & he's waiting for Spies decision cos he'll swap rides with him, but Spies will only switch if he wins the title, he'll stay in WSBK for next season if he doesn't win it! Re: Edwards, I used to be a big follower of his, thought he was a top profesional & rider, but due to the childish behaviour he's shown this season, I just can't stomach the guy...Poncheral has already stated that JT asked if he could try a new Chief Mech & Herve rubber stamped the move so it would cause competition between his riders. But the point is Herve the TEAM BOSS allowed it, as he is the only person who can! It just goes to show that Edwards wife has all children, its just that one of them is 35years old!!

Who Knows Who Cares???

Who knows if Herr Spies will be successful in Moto GP many have tried and failed to make an impression at that level Hayden is struggling on the Ducati.  Spies is no better than him.  JT won two WSB titles but has struggled.  Edwards is flattering himself on the Tech 3 and anyway none of them are a patch on Pedrosa, Lorenzo, D'ove or the Goat so what are we are talking about 'minor places' who cares!!!!

The 250 boys will grab the good rides anyway. JT for a Moto 2 ride what about it!!

Toseland is still a f****n good rider and all this stuff about him not being able to beat Edwards is stupid. Its not a fair comparison. How many years had Edwards had to learn the tracks? How many more years has he has to adapt to a GP bike not to mention the M1? Toseland has had two years and in that time he has had some very bad accidents and had to adapt to two different tyre manufactures whilst learning all the tracks as well..

Colin Edwards might be able to sit there and comment on this and that but at the end of the day, he has had no where near as much pressure as toseland and more expereince to boot! Careful Colin, it might be you under pressure soon.

For me I hope Toseland gets a Pramac ride and things start to go right for him. If not he should be entertaining in WSB

Good luck JT!

let's get it striaght jimmysound

The only "pressure" that JT had was from YOU GUYS and the self inflicted pressure of having to beat his teammate to justify stabbing said teammate in the back.

JT didn't have the pressure of trying to win the title did he? He didn't have the pressure of trying to beat Rossi or Lorenzo or Stoner did he? No, no one expected him to do any of that. So what pressure are you talking about? That's right, that self inflicted pressure and pressure from the Brits. No one's crying about JT's "pressure".

And chris313nt

Edwards has all the right to be mad.

Think about - If you where the experience rider in the team that got a pole, 2 podiums, and finished in the top 10 for a team and your teammate, a one year rider who hasn't achieved ANYTHING in MotoGP, that you beat, that you had to show the ropes to, that only claim to fame was one 2nd place qualifying and a 6th place or 2, that couldn't beat you if his life depended on it, has the f'king nerve to ask for your crew chief, how would you take it? And if you say you would be ok with it than you're a liar.

Yes, Herve rubber stamped it but JT was the one who asked and initiated it.
