Bollox to you troll.
you might be right about Vale but i think he's most definitely in the twilight now but still a damn fine racer, my point was that , as a team manager looking forward i'd rather have a hungry 27 yo with an improving record than a 34 yo with an impeccable career (barring 2 years on an unridable bronco that's only been tamed effctively once).
i would love to see Vale win another but on the balance of probabilities i don't think he can do it, if you think differently fair enough, i don't see it as a reason to berate you on an internet forum, it just means without a crystal ball you will have been right and i'll have been wrong or vice versa.
Cal, in my opinion deserves a factory ride as much as Dovi, Nicky, Jorge, Dani, Marc and Vale, he certainly deserves the chance over Bradl, Bautista and Iannone but again, without a crystal ball it's impossible to say either way if he'd do it, as i've said , he is a contender but whether he can win a WC on a factory Yam/Honda/Duke/Suzuki is mere speculation on everyones part, that's why i'm here, to discuss the permutations, not engage idiots who think making a right guess here gives them a hard on to be proud of.
unfortunately this is an unmoderated forum so trolls can get their hard on without fear so unless the forum makes them limp, they'll keep coming (no pun intended!!!) but ask yourself why someone would come on here with a scattergun approach to cover every conceivable scenario to start a personal argument?
if you disagree with a point of view it only takes one post to counter an argument, if the retort starts "fucking idiot, what the fuck do you know" or similar you know you have a troll for company.
the internets full of them, it's a shame this forum seems very healthily populated with them.
