Opinions are banned today!!!
Well we've sank to new depths today guys on this site I'm afraid. Been following the thread all day and have succomed, eventually to throw my OPINION in.
Well we've had the lot giving us their OPINIONS today so why not, we've had racers telling us what they think, ex-racers, arm chair fanatics, illiterates, know it all's, know bugger all's................the lot.
Here's some facts for you (i know, a fact...whatever next!!!) 2 blokes racing as hard as they can, they collide, one falls off. Thats it, job done.
In all honesty everything after this has been down to personal OPINION and what side of the fence you sit on. It really looks, from reading it all day as though the threads are fairly evenly split. Marco's fault- chopped Dani's nose off / Dani's fault- too fast in, crap braking, not on the racing line / (and of course, my own OPINION) no one in particulars fault, same bit o tarmac- a racing incident.
Take your pick chaps, i won't think any the worse of you for it, i truly don't mind which one you favour. But to tell someone for daring to have an OPINION they're "morons"/"idiot"/"clueless" etc. Nah not on. Disagree, state your case, change your mind if you like but c'mon lets do it with some form of openess to adult debate. A forum where you're not allowed to say what you're thinking, beggars belief!!!
MY thoughts are, a racing incident, move on. Ride throughs should be scrapped, you race to the flag and then the powers that be have from the incident to the time the riders stand on the podium to add time penalties if they see fit for punishments. This way the race isn't interupted, there's time for videos and reflection and no one reaches the exits not knowing who won/the podium etc (clearly if it's the last lap, they'll have to work fast!!!).
Gutted for Dani, really enjoying watching Marco, Casey superb. Hey, just my thoughts.............
