hi jackninthebox ..... i too have had the pleasure of the vitriol from our young elbowz/GYTR/racer over many months, in a similar manner to CCB. you'll notice a peculiar number of consecutive messages from CCB earlier this evening as elbowz has deleted his humourless profanity-littered replies - an elbowz trait that has also happened to me. i admire support for any rider in MotoGP but elbowz was (i'll have to use the past tense now) on a one person crusade to persuade the world (via a prodigious number of relatively brief posts on here) that Ben Spies was a future MotoGP world champion and how he was going to 'whoop some ass' on the 1000cc M1, most notably Dovi and several others. clearly, 2012 hasn't turned out as elbowz had forecast, and the increasingly bitter posts now list the likes of Lin Jarvis, the entire Yamaha Motor Company, Rossi, Spies' pit crew, 'bogey' circuits, and now Lorenzo as being central to the downfall of no. 11 in 2012, whilst Spies himself is completely blameless for anything that has gone wrong this season.
elbowz' latest proclamation is that he wants MotoGP to collapse as he's off to WSBK to support Spies (although i've not heard official confirmation that Spies will be on the BMW). elbowz has made an oversight that BMW may enter GP racing in 2014 (personally i'll believe it when i see it), in which case i'll welcome him back like a prodigal son and look forward to more mud-slinging. hopefully by then elbowz won't be quite so easy to wind-up into a Benny-eque lather, and will be able to illuminate us with more mature and reasoned debate. i'm not, however, holding my breath.
this may trigger a reply from elbowz, but i'm now apparently on his 'ignore list', despite the fact he can't resist having a dig every now and again. he also posted many weeks ago that i'm his 'biggest enemy' on MCN ....... elbowz, on that point, you should first take a look in the mirror.
