Wrong bud. On all counts.

Most of the 'squabbles' here are due to the yellow brigade not liking someone beating their King. This, combined with 'the King' making an arse of himself re-the Duke just adds to Flo's fans grievances. Nothing last's forever seem's to be a bitter pill to swallow for Flo's following.

It just happens that Stoner is the best in the world atm. If it wasn't him it'd be someone else. This does'nt change the fact that Flo's fans would be pissed off either way. Get used to it.

I hope Rossi does get the Repsol ride. It'd be nice to see him win on something that didn't need a super smooth power delivery.

I've only ever respected Vale's record. Who can't? The Stoner/Rossi thing is mainly due to Ducati. Before Vale rode it Stoner failed in the eyes of many. Now Vale's aboard.............. the story changes.

As i posted to 'leemuz', if it wasn't Stoner then Vales brigade would be moaning about someone else. (Kinda weird that they never knock Nicky for beating Rossi though don't you think?) They can't accept that maybe Vale isn't the force that he once was. Shit happens and time stops for no man.

Nite.

Spare seat at Repsol?

Shame to see him retire, but I understand his motivations, or lack of it in Motogp!

So the big question is.....

Who will pay the MOST for the other Repsol seat? Why would they give it to anyone?

Interesting tactical play by Stoner and Suppo, put the news out now and destabalise the rest of the riders while they jostle for position.
