I'm not a MM Bopper. No one is! IMO, the word 'Bopper' should be reserved exclusively for VR fans. 'Rossibopper' just rolls off the tongue...



Rossi Bopper

Stoner Boner

Marquez .... ???

C'mon, PS, one of you smart-asses must be able to come up with a good one!





With that out of the way, I suppose I'm a bit of a 'hater.' His riding strikes me as arrogant and often dangerous. He's not a clinical psychotic like Sofuoglu, but he has demonstrated a real knack for 'accidentally' pushing people into the poison spikes from time to time. Not Cool. Hoping he'll enter the series with an open mind and will be willing to learn how to race in a sane, respectful manner.



I don't see him as being quite as good as Lorenzo was when he entered the series, but he's close. I'll predict a similar first-year trajectory; plenty of crashes, plenty of weeks where it doesn't come together and he finishes among the Ducati mob, and probably a half dozen podiums. No wins, but wouldn't be willing to bet more than a beer on that....



I'll give him 6th on the year.

What history has taught me, since he's Spanish a 5th seems reasonable. Cause 6th will be way back in the points.

I was going to say fourth but you may be right. I think he will beat bradl, hrc kit or not, if he doesn't crash much, but as you no doubt considered bradl won't be a rookie, and even rossi and lorenzo and to a lesser extent pedrosa, and stoner as well for that matter, did crash frequently in their rookie years.

Rossi will win the title, if not him, Marc Marquez. (I already read the script).
