Not a fan at all of social media but it does open the doors and for mine, the two Asparagus brothers responses are a telling insight given that near all riders will get criticism on social media, but few react in this manner and most have light hearted banter.

Brookes' is a bit of a known shit stirrer so I do really hope this doesn't stop him and while I don't always agree with what he has to say (post-Sepang/Pre Valencia) I hope the abuse he copped back does not stop him.

Brookes reminds me (at least on track) as a young Sheene, but not knowing him and his mouth antics, I expect thats where the similarity ends. But he certainly seems to ooze capability in comparison to the Asparagus boys, (I wonder why Dorna haven't crashed their boat)
In fact Aleix record is abysmal take a look at this;
Aleix Espargaro
and Aleix Espargaro
What is he doing in MotoGP?

Awakward when a guy that took early retirement tells other racers they need to step up

You're attitude doesn't improve Mr Stoner, what bike have you ever developed from scratch...
Perfectly acceptable comments from a couch errr I mean coach.

I notice noone ever tells Pedrosa to step it up. That would be considered a racial hate crime

Race was called (from memory) and most (maybe all) of the fallers excluded.

If memory is right, Andrews (the guy knocked down) had, until that point not won a race and was considered to be one of the nice guys so near all were willing him the win.

As for the commentators, non-sugar coating is good but (IMO and bias as the victim of their commentary was an Aussie), they were also bias as all f*ck when you listen to other commentary when other riders f*cked up as big (Brookes was deserving that year as he was a loose cannon)

Ah Josh Brookes, that well known multi world champion who has dominated BSB for years. Why would a Motogp rider even respond to his crap? The guy has his hands full enough with Shakey, Ellison, and the other one with the famous dad who had big sideburns without calling out GP riders. Fanny. (UK meaning)

Ah, but you're forgetting Pete - he also had Hopper to contend with.

Brookes isn't out of line. He is a racer and would ride any machine you offer at any track.
Espargro is a whinging twat that always complains and has dummy spits.
I don't rate him as a championship contender, although he is a brilliant rider, he's no Motogp champ

Yes you are correct, Brookes would ride any bike at any track worse than Aliex who has had some very impressive results, overachieving in many instances on lesser equipment, in the highest level of bike racing in the world.
