You know what Chumps..
..you just can't help yourselves as the bitterness comes bubbling to surface again and, Benny aside - who's just bitter at ol wosi because he's parcelled him up so many times - it always comes from the hard core Stoner fans who have been dumped and abandoned.
By and large, they haven't even got the balls to direct it at the man himself, who as Mister MotoGP, was largely responsible for Stoners spineless retirement..the deep-rooted cause of all this angst.
No..it's always directed at The Rossi Fans. Transient by nature and fly-by-night celebrity TV show watchers who don't have a thorough understanding of the sport like them.
I tell ya..it's almost had me in tears reading lately.
These fans of a 9 time champ - who is in his 18th year racing at WC level - have been turning up for years..buying tickets come rain or shine, going to the races as a vast "sea of yellow" at every single round.
Rossi hasn't won a race for nearly 3 years..yet still they spend their hard-earned and are by far the most visible contingent. Turning up in droves, unbowed, cheerful and ready to have some fun. Following bike racing.
#46ers are amongst THE most loyal sporting fans on the planet and I'd say those are the kind of fans any rider would be proud of and love to have. They support you whether you win or lose and they don't do it from a fkin armchair.
So..all you sad orange drongo losers, put the hankies away and quit your pathetic whinging. It's only showing you up for what you are and making you look bad.
It's water off a duck's back and your soppy blubbing ain't gonna change a thing..
..there there..deep breath..head up and shoulders back..feel better now?
