What the hell has happened to the so-called MotoGP stars, these days?  They have become a pack of limp wristed girls: "don't pass me I might fall off,"  "You got a tow from me, I'm going to slap you with my hand bag, boo hoo,"  "Can't go to Japan because the radiation might shrivel my balls!"  I've got news for you spoiled brats: your balls have already gone because you are far too spoilled with riches that the rest of us can merely dream of.  I respect your talents: that isn't in question but for God's sake grow up.


Bring back the likes of Barry Sheene, Kenny Roberts, Carl Fogarty, Joey Dunlop, Ron Haslam, Dave Potter, Mike hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, et al.  They made racing what it should be.  Get over yourself Pedrobot: you nearly cost Nicky Hayden, your team mate, the world title becasue YOU took him out.  Want Race Direction to comment on that one again?

These so-called stars really are getting soft. The ride through for Simoncelli was far too excessive to many. His memory is short as he escaped unpunished when he took Hayden out in 06 and almost wrecked Hayden's championship.

Got to feel sorry for Dani with all the bad luck he has had especially since he came to Moto GP but he needs to put this incident behind him and concentrate on the future.
I tend to agree with you Glen747 that the riders seemed to be a lot harder and tougher all round and their bikes were ridden by them and not controlled by electronics.
Unfortunately the 800cc years have been the biggest let down in years for GPs.
Lets hope things start to improve next season!

Dovi should be the last one HRC are thinking of getting rid of. He's been so consistant up to yet this year, points every race if i'm correct and to paraphrase that bleating old fart Brucie, what do points make.?

Pedrosa will never win a Championship and isn't number one anymore, Moaner is. Bye, bye Dani. Off to WSBK!!!
