I thought that Iannones tribute helmet was a nice touch and turned out excellent. Much better than Rossis which for the most part I have a hard time disagreeing with Jumkie about. It's been a hard pill for me to swallow(as someone who isn't a diehard Hayden fan) watching the Valeban putting up tributes and advertising Hayden tribute merchandise when they for over a decade have attempted to devalue Hayden's greatest achievement.

Now in the most disgusting way, but so typical of Rossi, the guy who was the most responsible for causing a necessary defense of Nicky's championship is getting props for what exactly? Increasing his 46 brand so you can say oh how cool, I get it, that's so clever, 46 & 69, that's so sweet and heartwarming. Sarcasm.

Every time you see this plastered on the screen, think of this take on it: Rossi has stolen something here, and now this disgusting image of self-promotion will be immortalized in countless tributes, it's about Rossi, even Nicky's death is about Rossi! At Le Mans press conference, Nick Harris turned it over to Rossi to "speak for all of us", so "The Doctor" who called a 'doctor' reported Nicky's medical condition, the fucking absurdity! They will run this image and whatever else Rossi and Dorna have for tomorrow ad nauseam.

Fuck Rossi.
So I guess you won't be signing up for the Rossi Bike Collection diecasts?

I first soured on Rossi when he punted Gibernau. But I forgave him. It's his crazy yellow fans that are really annoying. They make you want to hate the guy.[/QUOTE]

Still not forgotten or forgiven by me. That was the last straw, after many examples of intimidation and crazy lines nowhere near the racing line meant to intimidate.

And it's not improved since.

Still got to hand it to him for qualifying position.

I am disappointed with Zarco's position. Perhaps he should have learned something from Dani and picked a harder front tire. I don't like it when MM isn't closer to the Yamaha boys. It scars me that the race will be boring. There wasn't much interest in the dual compound tire, it seems.



Anyway, Rossi was quite impressive in QP3

Rossi did enough shiet for me to turn sour on him even without his "fans". However it would help Rossi image tremendously to his "haters" if he just makes a statement to his "fans" that it's not cool to boo vinales or anybody who are faster than him , but nope, he didn't do it. He didn't do it before for MM, JL and he is not going to do it now. I guess he needs to get all the advantages he can get.

Maybe I misunderstood? There was a lap of honor for Hayden? I hadn't seen that. Can you post a link? All I see in your post is a screen shot of Rossi with a #69 on his helmet to honor Nicky. If the media is fixated on Rossi, that's their bad.
