Nazi!

Sweet, can you also bring Ducati into the argument? Because you may recall Honda prevented Rossi from touching the 04 M1 beyond Dec 31 (that he developed into a title winner) meanwhile Ducati did no such thing at the end of 2013, when Rossi threw them under the bus. Not to mention Rossi was kind enough to develop for Lorenzo and left him a title worthy bike in 2011, for the 2012 championship. Maybe it's a good thing Yamaha were coerced into signing Rossi back, as his legendary development skill developed for Lorenzo to win the 2015 title, eh?

I don't understand what that has to do with my post about why I feel HRC didn't want Casey to wildcard. Please explain.

It doesn't bro, I'm just using your post to rant about Rossi's legendary development. Just wanted to wedge my point, so I highjacked your post. My 'development' retort was in response to u asking me how many times did Casey ride the 13-14 title RCV.

Get it? Godwin's law. Off topic. Highjacked thread? I was trying to be funny by quoting you and not responding to the quote.

Huzzah! Now it is official, people can wean themselves off of discussing the never ending soap opera and talk about this. It is going to be a long winter.

Got brotha. It was hard to understand with this ringing and blood coming from my ears. I can't even look at Rossis name. I won't read another sentence involving him. I don't care if its pro bopper or anti bopper I fucking can't listen to it anymore. I'm having a berry berry meltdown.

That is a not un-interesting contention. Does anyone here recall a wildcard rider stealing points from a teammate in contention for the championship. One would assume that not doing so would be a pre-condition of any agreement with the team management.

Well there was another occasion where Honda fielded a wildcard which could have taken points away from their contender. See Laguna Seca 02. Wsbk.

Woah! One day I log in late and there's so much action that has already happened!! Fantastic news for Ducati but if he remains as a test rider then that will be a big let down. Hope he races along with two other factory riders and proves his talent...again.

True Dubs, but Stoner himself said that the best he would expect would have been 5th and that he 'would not take points from his team mates'

That said though, I am not sure if that was before or after MM seemingly criticised him which may well have changed things

HRC probably wouldn't like that either. That want to see him ride like Casey Stoner. There is more negative than positive that could result in letting a rider like casey wildcard and thats what matter most to the bosses. IMO
