I expect a media tone similar to the one we just saw where the entire paddock was forced to comment on Rossi's training activity, this time requiring everybody to comment on their thoughts of returning so soon and how heroic or folly it may be.

Let's play a game:

Name the injury the rider had whilst racing and people try to guess the rider. I'll start:


Injury: broken back

(That seems rather severe right? Can you imagine the implications of re-injuring it?)

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.

Its not admirable to come back before your injury is healed. It stupid and has more risk then reward. You're not prepared to race a sport again until you are healthy enough to fall. Doing it for a championship is short sighted. Doing when your not even in the hunt and have nothing to prove to your team makes no sense at all. Its called glory hunting.

TBO the only thing going for him he looks attractive next to Rossi, who resembles an monkey.

A fucking exciting sport and great fun to play.
Exactly, you do use leg strength to ride a bike, but it is nowhere near having a bum shoulder, wrist , arm , injury like Lorenzo did hours after breaking his collarbone.

Gollum is a monkey, just look at the way it moves.

Haha. Good comparison all around.
Surrounded by short, portly guys, obsessed with getting back his ring.

No actually, I was born in Melbourne, brought up on the sport, my father played 120 VFL firsts games, and I went to Assumption College for a year before my family moved to Sydney.

I can no longer tolerate the parochialism of the Melbourne based commentators and the capricious nature of the umpiring, views my father shares, and that the sport seems to have become heavily narrative based, similar to my problem with gp bike racing in recent times. I also now see it as something of a waste of athletic talent which could be involved in more international sports.
