What I found interesting in the abovestatement from Mike Webb was this:

Quote:
“Clear evidence is required which is why we have a camera [500fps] on each rider with the red lights shown in the same frame, so it is clear and evidential whether the rider moves before the red light is out."
Without trying to flog a dead horse, I find it highly hyprocritical that he says that yet last year in Malaysia he stated that "We believe" Marc Marquez was hindering Rossi's race pace.

So Mike, you don't punish Morbidelli when even on the TV camera we the viewers had, his jump start was arguably the most obvious, because you had no clear evidence, but you have still provided ZERO clear evidence about Marquez in Sepang 2015 while making statements about his intent.

Double standards much?

That's an excellent point 22.

In one case he needs absolute evidence, which according to him can only be drawn by a particular camera (no not other cameras filming the same shit at the same time.) But he must have had a special brain waves camera that interpreted Marquez's brain wave patterns and thoughts?

Personally I feel that nowadays the mania that surrounds Valentino almost instills fear of doing or saying anything against him in case one feels the backlash of their actions. Even on Internet forums this happens, on Eurosport forums anyone even mentioning anything negative of Valentino gets dogs abuse.

It's just Eurosport's own forum, I use the app. If you go on be careful though as even the moderators must be pro Rossi, they ban you at the drop of a hat because the Rossi fans must use the report button. You need an new email address each time you get banned too. It's a real pain but can be a laugh. It's dead at the moment due to the race results or it'd be swamped with custard.

Under the new gag order rules, if Marquez said 'we know why we have these tires but we dare not say' would get him sanctioned. Like when Lorenzo commented on Mike Webb's failure to issue a black flag, by saying 'Rossi's name is too big in the sport'. Remember how people jumped all over him as being undignified? Pedrosa was suddenly Jesus for not saying anything of the injustice. (Which is funny because Jesus was all about calling out injustices.) Riders will be less inclined to point out favoritism.

I love the smell of confirmation bias in the evening.
