Poll: What should Rossi do?

It's not going well for the Italian legend this year. Seventh at the Portuguese MotoGP is his best result so far and rumours of retirement persist in the media. If you were Rossi, what would you do now? pollcomment

Bob - You really are clueless, i'd love just once to see a post from you with reasoned argument and not just attacking a certain rider or  other poster on this forum, just to show you can do it.

Retire with dignity? Get fkn real!

The 'retire while he has dignity' analogy sits alongside the arguement of him having 'nothing to prove'.

To me, he's never showed dignity, never will. Honestly, that's never been an issue to me and probably the rest of the real fans of the sport either, but the pretense that he achieved the numbers without the full and exclusive support of DORNA is quite hypocritical of him and his supporters. Any inkling of a trait that may be mistaken for dignity, has disappeared quite some time ago.

Never, has a competitor had more to prove than Flo has on the Ducati... never!

He'l be back

I believe he will be back,

not sure how much longer Yamaha will put up with Lorenzo taking a beating from Stoner year after year.

I think Casey is a faster rider than Valentino but I gaurantee Vale would put up a better fight than Jorge.

Vale always knew if he could win or not, but he would always try to unsettle the guys with crazy late breaking and risky maneuveres,

Thats how he beat him before, he pushed him to his limits and the guy cracked.

Rossi is a competive person, he has to be to have achieved all he did. Competive people are always optimistic and looking for challanges. Some of ye are saying rossi should retire with dignity. With all rossi achieved he will always have dignity even if he never sees a podium again. Have a look at our own achievements, fuck all when compaired to rossi. Where were Yamaha before rossi. We thought he was crazy leaving the mighty Honda.

Rossi will always be remembered as one of the greats, he may not be as fast as he was when he was younger but thats a sad fact of life. We all get old and slower. I enjoy watching rossi race because I know I will be telling my grandchildren about the greatest racer I ever saw and his name is Valentino Rossi.

he should write another book

Maybe called "Wish I'd never tried it" or something.

And yes, late breaking and overtake feints are the exclusive signature of Valentino Rossi and no other rider before or since has ever attempted them.

Hopefully

Things will come good at Ducati as all supporters of bike racing would no doubt love to see a good battle with Ducati/ Rossi up there. We have not seen many if any of the casey vs Rossi style grand battles since he has been at ducati and been unable to compete.

I think Rossi can make the most of the situation he is in and turn the circumstances around in his favor. I believe he has the talent and Ducati appears to be willing to invest their resources, it will just take more time.

Rossi is going back to Yamaha for 2013, and he is bringing the Fiat title sponsor back with him.

Rossi is riding a CocaCola sponsored Suzuki with Keven Schwantz running the team.

Rossi is riding for San Carlo on an RC213V

Rossi is riding the new 70 degree motor Ducati for anothe season.

Rossi is going to WSB coz MotoGP is boring.

Pick one, but don't bet on it......!

Quite agree Bob

Besides which quitting now would be ignominy not dignity.
