Good gods, even Richard Milhouse Nixon knew when it was over...
Uccio must be very unsettled right now - he's about the ONLY thing left for Rossi to blame for his lack of performance. " Ah, I getta the wrong breakfast cereal, and then my gloves, they are put on the wrong hand before I race. I try my hardest, but without the right talcum powder in my panties, they ride up my bum-crack and my race rhythm, she is all shot to fark. These things I have to change so I can win again'.
Stoner must be pissing himself laughing. Burgess took some shots at Stoner on Rossi's behalf and now he's been drop-kicked under the #46 bus from Tuvallia. Stoner did the same as Rossi when he entered the premier class - WC in his second year. Then he dominated the 800 era - two WC's and 33 wins. How many WC's and wins for Rossi? He won 23 vs 0 races for Rossi on the worst factory bike on the grid and came back after three years of not winning to take another WC on his first ride of a factory Honda ( a record that still stands for a return to the top position, Wosi old mukka).
Then Stoner decided to retire - as WC. HRC offered him five times Rossi's current Yamaha salary to stay on. No bullshit stuff from Stoner about the bike being incapable; no bullshit about his crew chief being unable to do his job. No bullshit about Preziosi being unable to design a winning bike. He left his crew chief - Gabbarini - as one of the most powerful men in motoGp technical circles - Technical Director at HRC - not as a reject from the chocolate starfish licker brigade that Rossi has consigned Burgess to..
Rossi stays in motoGp racing to sell merchandise - at which his organisation is very good. Burgess didn't fit any more; I expect Paris Hilton or a Kardashian as the new crew chief. It's all about **** and arse - and Rossi has exposed himself as a complete ****, while behaving as a complete arse.
Oh, how much we await Burgess's book. He's a gentleman, but this move on Rossi's part will release him from the bounds of loyalty - he's been treated with the ultimate disloyalty. HRC knew it of him years agoa dn had no place at the inn for him ever again; wait and see Yamaha dropping him like Nike did Tiger Woods for his transparent duplicity.
Rossi was a god in the 990's; now he's a troll. Wosi, me old mukka, it's time to give up on venerating false gods. Every dog has its day and Rossi's ended when Stoner arrived on a factory bike. Stoner and Lorenzo have better records since 2007 and Marquez is about to blow the old geezer out of the water entirely. Think: 'the once and past King' and you can glory in the best of Rossi, but to cling on to the coat-tails of a rouged but faded drama queen is sad, mate - really sad.
