Okay.. Can't argue that. But he did own up to it not being a wish move and wish he hadn't done it. Still not his greatest moment, but owned it like a man. More than most do.

But, that is it? Far, far from scoundrel-ness if you ask me.

Lorenzo is a human with flaws, certainly. The crowd got to him when he reacted with the thumbs down to a group booing him for his efforts wilst moments after seeing a video replay of the man undeservingly on the podium next to him, knowing this man had just used his machine as a deliberate weapon to stand on that podium. Race Direction had just given the thumbs up to deliberately eliminating competitors by any means to stand on that podium. Perhaps all this brazen injustice got to Lorenzo and he acted out on his emotions. He later openly and publicly apologized for it.

It's a good thing Rossi has apologized publicly for making baseless accusations, called both Marc's integrity into question and shitting all over the legitimacy of Lorenzo's championship. Not to mention deriding the Spanish organizers for being part of the "Spanish conspiracy" to cheat him out of a title. Otherwise, you'd call Rossi a scoundrel, right?

I love how it's ok for you Lorenzoboppers to make excuses for him, but when a Rossi fan does the same, they are "sucking Rossi's nuts".

Lorenzo has never engaged in the numerous malicious incidents that Valentino Rossi has for most of his career.

The worst thing Lorenzo ever did was the torpedo in 250cc back in 2005, and that changed his perspective completely about safe and dangerous riding. He's been a pretty consistent guy over the years, and has something Rossi has never exhibited once in 15+ seasons in the premier class - decency.

As you may recall, Lorenzo took Simoncelli to task over his riding in 2011, and Simoncelli thought the whole thing was a joke. Rossi also certainly thought the entire thing was a joke. Unfortunately it turned out to be anything but a joke at Sepang 2011.

Rossi has spent his entire career engaging in character assassination, dangerous riding, and the encouraging of his fanbase to express their vitriol towards riders that he deemed unworthy simply because they had the temerity to challenge him on the circuit. See the incidents with Messieurs Biaggi, Gibernau, Stoner, Lorenzo, and Marquez. Frankly, there is no redeeming quality to be had with Rossi because as Michael Scott once observed many years ago, Rossi is a ruthless competitor who stops at nothing to get his way, and one should not be so dense to think his clown antics are who he really is.
