I'm not the one who openly questioned how p4p1 could know something that happened before 2013 when to the informed and intelligent, there's many ways such a thing could be determined even if they were not actively following something at a given time (2007). For example, I didn't need to be around in the year 1963 to know that John F. Kennedy was assassinated, nor did I need to be around to know what the particulars were of the actual assassination.

Not getting the dog breed right was irrelevant as it was just me being a dick for the sake of being a dick. It was amusing as all hell to me even though I'd be the first to tell you it was pure juvenile humor. Your response was 100% worth it. Would, and definitely will do it again.

I started watching religiously in 2013. When Stoners book came out he did spill the beans a little bit on michelins activities. Most of what he said lines up with a lot of the views expressed on here. I like to read so once I really got into the GP I started trying to learn a little bit of history. After reading something on here I decided to try and research as much as I could myself. I used google.

Another from Michelin, it certainly points to development favouring Rossi.

An even better one here which states that there were allegations that Carmello threaded to kick Bridgestone out of the GP is they did supple Rossi. Speaks about being happy to go into a new direction as well.

Arguments that the deck hadn't been previously or since stacked in favour of Rossi are IMO ignorant for the simple fact that if Carmello interfered once here which is proven.

That he stated he was calm because Rossi would be on a competitive bike in 2013

Or there's this that heavily implies Carmello doing a similar thing with Yamaha that he did with Bridgestone for the 2013 season

For the most part the inner workings of dealings are kept out of the media but there is certainly enough information and evidence to the fact that DORNA have certainly helped Rossis career and legacy immeasurably. There's the strange removal of tyres that hurt his competition on top of these. I'm interested to see if Michelin got to a stiffer carcass soon or if DORNA are happy with the softer carcass in an effort to make MV into a star after Rossi vilified and used his dumb cunt fan base to what should have been their next money maker much much less marketable.
