Still smarting and getting yourself in a tizz over DE Nostro?
Emmett was/is most definitely Olympic torch-bearer for The Australian..I can't understand why you get so upset?
I mean..he wasn't prepared to denounce Rossi's talent like you, but there again, not many fans who understand the game and haven't got a silly agenda are.
After the Austin test, he did state Vals chances weren't Sunny and his Moon was waning, which the Qatar race performance has subsequently thrown a curved ball at.
Time waits for no man old Fella..as we both know. Rossi has got his hands full and is probably facing the toughest challenge of his career right now. Nobody is saying he's gonna trounce anybody.
But he hasn't slunk off bad mouthing pushing his lip in wheelbarrow..and he said he'd rather have quit, rejecting more money than Casey was offered at Honda, than stay on the uncompetitive Ducati.
He loves bikes & racing and thinks he's still good enough to give these guys a run for their money. He is prepared to back that belief head on..with nowhere to hide should things turn out badly.
As far as I can see Spies is not doing that, and IMO, Stoner didn't do it either.
