I Never Thought VR46 Would Be Like This

I love this man and he is my all time Fav (next to Joey D) but I never thought he would be like this - I think age is playing a factor here:

WOW:

Wow, that doesn't sound like VR. I don't think it is true. MM may have been taking his time and waiting but, I don't think he was trying to mess with VR.

I'm inclined to respect Rossi's take on this. He's always had character and integrity, and he would know and understand the situation better than most.

Believe me, at the club level alone, there is more than enough ego and this type of bullshit that it makes sense in this context. I can completely believe Rossi's comments in regard to Marquez's reasons and motivations for doing this.

You think these guys don't have have huge egos? Or want to prove in any way possible that they're better than Rossi? Rossi has not only been at or near the top for more than a decade, he manages to enjoy it and have fun while younger riders obviously ride to the point of burnout, exhaustion, and worse trying to achieve what he has.

I think iannone even mentioned something after the race at Philip island. Yeah you'd hope that these guys don't have to resort to crap like this.

But it reminds me a little of that YouTube video of the old war vet beating the snot out of that punk who was messing w him on the bus that went viral a few years ago.

After watching todays race, I'm not sure I would use the words "respect" and Rossi in the same sentence

Yes, perspectives are definitely different one day later, but then again, Marquez was definitely fucking with Rossi this time, no ifs, ands, or buts. So Rossi lost his cool, but if MM hadn't been fucking around, this would never have happened. No call for it, and I gotta say I don't blame Rossi too much. Nobody would appreciate it if someone was fucking around with them like that, especially with a championship at stake. For that reason, I still hold more respect for Rossi than Marquez.

Whatever. In the end, it hurts both riders.

Marquez wins this battle and prevents the greatest motogp racer of all time from winning another championship but Marquez will probably be fighting for a championship or race win in the future and I hope karma comes back to bite him. He was definitely slowing up Rossi and unfortunately Rossi made a bad decision.

Starting to feel like Nascrap. If I wanted drama I'd watch "reality" tv
