Peddler of the purile - gotta hand it to you though, you've been hanging on the ropes in recent rounds, using the same old tired defence of your boy, but just managing to stay upright on those tired old wobbly legs to see each round out. But now, a sniff of the old smelling salts in the form of the first test results and your back in ring centre, meting out some hefty blows, although not actually landing with anything significant.
You wonder why there is so much comment that you perceive to be anti Rossi? Just look at what the excited little yellow fanboys are posting as they come crawling back out of the woodwork
Rossi isn't going for a fast lap
Rossi is playing it smart
Rossi is only slower than Pedrosa and Lorenzo because he isn't dashing for the cash
Lorenzo and Pedrosa only set faster laps because they went for them in optimum conditions.
He's playing cat and mouse with them
Honda are cheating because they have previous data to draw from
Pedrosa's a headline chaser
etc etc etc
In other words, Rossi is peerless, the only reason he isn't at the top of the timesheets is because he doesn't want to be. If he did he would. We're back to the superior attitudes of previous years already. No-one is as good as he is, no-one can beat him unless he is disadvantaged in some way. He's the goat.
The accolades are pouring in like cum through your piss-hole when you see his latest helmet job. So what does it say about Cal's performance, still on last year's lower spec bike - less than 2 tenths back.
It's the first test ffs and although interesting and giving some reference as to how things will shape out, mid season will be a more representative indication of who's capable of what
But, good to see your dukes back up from your sagging sides and jabbing hard again. Don't chuck out the 3 legged stool and rope any time soon though...
