Sorry. Your right. I will try to remember the proper protocol. Its still worth watching. I figure MOTOGP in all caps and putting in a link instead of text was enough that you would avoid it if you hadn't seen a recent race. Some guy spoiled it for me on here before the race was even shown on TV. He put "no spoiler" in the title of the thread but it was too late once I clicked on it because why else would a guy with Rossi in his avatar post that is was another great race?

So what's the appropriate time to wait? When does the spoiler expire? After the repeats on Tues? One week? After the next round?

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

It is worth watching even knowing the results. Four riders dice for most of the race to what may be the most exciting finish this season. I'm starting to suspect Rossi has been sent from another universe to teach us all how racing should be done! He starts 10th and plays with the rest of the field till he decides it's time to go ahead and win. Will he win at Laguna Seca or will Nicky make it two? What a great season so far!

yep, what he said.
although, i think if Colin gets a good start he is a contender for the win as well


time frame for spoiler messages, dunno, if it were me I'd wait a couple of weeks for anyone that was on vacation and recorded it. I usually just put spoiler up there anyway.

I'm starting to wonder if Rossi is testing his own skills (qualifying a bit later just to prove he can pass the fastest guys). I like Hayden but like Rossi said "he's only fast as long as he has someone fast ahead of him". Hayden will do good at Laguna but it would be totally bad-ass if Rossi won.

I like that Rossi apologized to his M1 for having doubts in the post race interview

I'm getting tired of Rossi ignoring the questions in the post race interview and just talking about whatever the hell he wants, and talking forever too!! I think he's awesome but man I'm getting tired of him post race.

I'd rather listen to him than Pedrosa. That kid needs to grow a personality!

I didn't care for the fact that you only heard him in the post race interviews and not anyone else.

Nah. He can't run the Qs on the M1 all the time because they have too much grip for the chassis and it causes too much chatter. If you look at his race simulation times they aren't that bad. He can often get the right setup for the race and he is very good at riding around problems. A lot of guys cannot do that.

I think they should interview all three on the podium the way they used to.

I like Pedrosa. This is fucking motorcycle racing. Who gives a shit if he's so focused that he doesn't show emotion. Kinda like Rainey? Well if I recall correctly, he celebrates only after he's won a championship as he did when he won the 125 championship followed by 2 consecutive 250 championships.

So what do you think about Stoner and Yamaha and Rossi's comments? JB has said in the past that he would like to work with Stoner. Do you think they will keep CEII?
