Try talking about moto GP in the current sense without referring to Rossi all the time, there's a lot more going on than just him.
Jumkie stays on his track, Rossi continues not to resile from his view on the 2015 title.

Thus nature balances.

I Ride: The original
Marcel Shrotter riding today following a fractured scaphoid one of the worst injuries that you can sustain as a motorcycle racer. No cameras and crowds awaiting his arrival at the circuit, no plaudits saturating social media no media spotlight. The lad simply grits his teeth and goes ahead with the job, for the team the sponsors and most importantly, himself. 99% of the viewing public doubtless utterly impervious to this.
Jumkie, Theo, p4p1 and 2 others like this.

I actually have no problem giving Rossi plaudits for qualifying third at age 38 only 3 weeks after fracture and internal fixation of his tibia and fibula. I think Colin Edwards and to an extent Lorenzo were given credit for riding after clavicular fractures, and it has always been the way that the premier class attracts all the publicity.

What is laughable is Daniboy chastising Jumkie for not letting bygones be bygones where Rossi is concerned, given a significant reason for his (and my) animus against Rossi is the career long off track vendettas against his rivals, and his involvement of his fans in detracting from those rivals. When Rossi gives up on his narrative about the 2015 title, and instructs his fans to do likewise, DB's attempt to assume the moral high ground might have a vague chance of having something in the way of credibility.

I didn't think you would subscribe to a, "one wrong deserves another" philosophy. Didn't seem like DB wasn't assuming moral high ground, sounded more like he was complaining about the incessant sound of dogs barking.

I am not one for false moral equivalence actually; perhaps you can point out the falsity in this case.

Am I the only one who starting to doubt Rossi's injury?

Doctor expect him to fully fit 40 days after surgery. VR decide to race just after 24 days.
that is nearly 50% faster.

this weekend I expect him a bit struggling just by walking, BUT, his first appearance in the paddock showed the opposite (see this video https://twitter.com/MotoGP/status/910838706428350464)
he walked with crutches on the wrong hand, then eventually realized it before going upstairs.

then after the race, his later race pace was down to M1's eating the rear tyre faster than anybody, not his broken leg (https://twitter.com/matoxley/status/911999551351017475)
and no sign of pain at all after the race, is that even possible?

BSB rider Christian Iddon posted this on social media yesterday

"Only 23 days recovery after breaking his leg and Rossi was back on the grid. Impressive! Brands Indy BSB 2015 I broke my fibula race 1. 3 hours 'recovery' and I was on the grid for race 2. Closely followed by months of rehab and I have the x-ray to prove it."

Oh and another lap of honor after the race.

Lol........ I need another coffee.

This one wouldn't have involved nearly as much soft tissue injury and would have been stable once pinned, although doubtless still too painful for most among us to contemplate anything very vigorous. The main thing I imagine would be being sufficiently unconcerned to ride at a competitive pace, it certainly would not be a good idea to fall or be hit and re-break the thing.
