its a sport, like any sport fans root for their favorites and boo thought they don't like. Is it fair for fans to cheer when someone they root against makes an error? I think thats ok, until its realized that they are injured.

Hollywood, this is sport unlike any other. Fine to boo and heckle when somebody makes a mistake playing one of those games where you only need one ball.

This sport requires two.

I've grown up watching baseball; heckling, booing is an integral part of the sport, more than accepted, it's damn part of the game. But I've never heard an opposing player mock cheered for running full tilt body slamming into the outfield wall chasing a spectacular catch. In fact, I've seen the opposite, applauded for the effort, and genuinely cheered when he gets up off the ground. You pay your respects, tip of the cap, even if he is a fucking bum from the opposing team. Every sport has its etiquette known by the fans. I've gone to basketball games where the fans are given these noise makers to annoy the opposition at the free throw line, but it's not acceptable to distract a golfer teeing up (as I recently learned). The Oracle Arrabi or Gaz who has worked as a corner work can correct me if I'm wrong, but cheering riders who have crashed is something relatively new in motorcycle racing. I wish I could say it's unique to Italy, but it's not, I saw a bunch of Yellow clad goons cheer Viņalez's crash at COTA. And I'm not buying this bullshit about cheering after the rider is shown to be ok, because the cheers were audible whilst the rider was still sliding.

If the two you start with are sufficiently large, apparently one suffices as Troy Bayliss demonstrated.

Troy probably needed one out of the way to be able to get into his leathers properly anyway, such were the size of his love spuds

Same thing as I say to the Valeban when they venture here.

Just a tad hypocritical to complain about conspiracy theories on here, a tiny corner of the internet, when their bread and butter depends upon a guy who alleged a massive conspiracy with absolutely no evidence to the world press at large, from which he has not resiled, and around which they, including David now, at best tip toe, with none of the major "journalists" ever prepared to call him out.

As I have said, I don't go all the way with Jumkie's hypotheses, but Casey Stoner clearly believes Dorna took steps after both his titles to inhibit him making a multi-title run, he said it in his book for a start, and showed the courage of his convictions by rejecting a 30 (EDIT 20) million per year contract and retiring. I don't neglect the possibility that Michelin are merely purely incompetent, but also give credence to JPS's theory that Dorna are trying to generally equalise the field with substandard tires, a practice with historical precedent in F1 and for which I recall Carmelo expressing enthusiasm when it was going on in F1.
