Merely pointing out that both are untrue .

Which was also an opinion and not a fact.

If we are to switch from the tongue in cheek to the totally serious at your whim, when since 2007 has Rossi not got the tyre he wanted?

Never, every race weekend they get a choice of tyres, he chooses the ones he wants from those.

Nonsense. He got the Bridgestones in 2008, which were not his to choose before considerable machinations.

I have never had a problem with him having whatever tyres he wants anyway as I have rather frequently said, my problem is with the range of tyres available to his competitors, with tyres which suited them not infrequently being withdrawn; again I ask you, what tyre of Rossi's preference, as opposed to tyres preferred by his competitors, has been withdrawn since 2007?

From SuperbikePlanet:

The late withdrawal of the fourth, stiffer front tyre following the Safety Commission meeting last night raised a few eyebrows. Cal Crutchlow wasn’t happy that a “rat” was leaking things said in the privacy of the Commission. Marc Marquez managed to be diplomatic in the extreme by pointing out that the tyre would probably have helped him but you cannot just change the rules and overcrowd the race schedule. The unspoken suggestion was, of course, that this was the tyre that Valentino Rossi very much wanted to use, although he did not attend the meeting. Was this really a matter of safety or a technical rule? A rat told me that one rider demanded very loudly of Loris Capirossi why he was bringing a special tyre for his friends: “You never do that for me when I have a sh*t weekend!”

You invented this. Who said the SNS were all the same, and were all focused on Rossi?

Edit: I see that MichaelM et al have already debunked this assertion.
