The pain is evident..
Four snippets from Bulto's novel.
Rossi had been dicking Yamaha around for some time with threats of leaving Motogp...
Threats? dicking around? Try, having a bit of fun.. with his world class performances across other motorsport diciplines and box office draw making him a target for speculation. Rossi always said 4 wheels would be after he'd finished with bikes.
If you talk of gratitude, where was Rossi's to Honda, for giving him his chance in Motogp on a proven bike (6 of the previous 7 titles) Instead he said it was him not the bike and stomped off to Yamaha...
Stomped off?. Gave him the chance?..Oh deary me.
He delivered the last ever 500 titlle and the first two MotoGP. You make it sound like he had nowhere else to go after his success in the smaller classes..one of your favorite lines in bullshit while attempting to denigrate him.
Stoner returned after the problem was identified and treated and won again first time back...
Marlboro & Ducati's issue with him was that he took the time off and went incommunicado with team and sponsor before lactose was identified by his doctor in Oz. Medical tests carried out on behalf of Ducati found nothing wrong. 10 weeks off mid-season leaving all and sundry high and dry, for a little sicky burp?
That to me is hardly a benefit to the sport, when a percentage of watchers are interested only in a rider, not the actual racing...
Bums on seats Pal, cash in the tills..Do you think everyone who watches Chesea v Liverpool plays football?
Face it Bulto..your world would have a handful of purists watching in anoraks.
You don't like Rossi because his flamboyant character makes him more than just a bike racer to many. It sticks in your craw that this popularity gives him influence.
Did you have many mates at school, Saddo? Were you bullied a lot?
