It's easy to diss your rivals when things are going well for you and bad for them, class stands in being able not to.
Even Stoner, of whom I am an enormous fan, couldn't resist throwing shit at Rossi when the latter was having a hard time on the Ducati.
That kind of behaviour, in my opinion, just isn't cool.
Noone is "dissing" their rival. Having an open discussion with your team and teammate regarding their treachery is something that happens in real world situations. Your conflating this as if Im implying Dovi go on a Trumpesque twitter rant. Dovi did nothing but stick his tail between his legs and slink away.
This is why Ducati views Lorenzo as their number 1 rider and rightfully so. Just like a dog marking his territory, Lorenzo pissed all over Dovi's face and Dovi just lapped it up.
We will see a changing of the guard this year at Ducati. Lorenzo will rule and Dovi will go back to being everyone's favorite test rider

That's a bold statement!

As much as I like Jorge, I can't see him 'dominating' Dovi this year

Worst analogy ever.
Im still not sure why Synn implying that Cal and Zarco aren't PC to the media is a bad comparison. Everyone seems to have understood it but you keep persisting. You should stop backpedaling and just admit your the only person in the room that doesn't get simple arithmetic.
I enjoy Cals candor. If you hit yourself in the thumb with a hammer ( sort of like you just did) you yell, curse and express your pain and frustration. That's normal human behavior and I would much rather hear that than listen to them thank the hammer company for their sponsorship

Jorge needed a year to figure out the characteristics of the Ducati and an offseason for the engineers to implement his data.
Dovi has had years of seat time on the Ducati which by all accounts is a wildly different platform.
You cant judge Jorge on his learning year.
I see only upward mobility for Lorenzo this year

Did you ever talk, over the past 3 months, to someone who works in the Ducati MotoGP Department's office? Well I was lucky enough to do so and they told me a different story.

But I am sure they were all defending Dovizioso (he's Italian, after all) and that your version is the exact reality.

Please tho, meet me here in 8 exact months from today and we'll see who was right, Mr. Tatlock

If they build him an Evel Knievel ramp, he would be very upwardly mobile!

Changing of the guard? Ducati's reaction to JLo at Valencia shows he is already in control. Ducati sent the pr police out to save face for Jhoe instead of the rider who's teammate ruined his chances at a title. Dovi knows his role but he silently refuses to except it like a true competitor. Fuck Jorge he is an asshole.

Sorry Libby

I reckon he would've handled it behind closed doors through Ducati management.

One of the reasons I like Cal is because he is forthright with his thoughts. People respect that.
I don't believe being that way has ever hampered his career. If your fast, you will ride.
Look at someone like Dovi. He's been slapped around by HRC, Ducati, and Lorenzo. All the while he's too scared to speak up. Noone has any respect for him because he won't stand up for himself. I would love to see that happen to Cal. He would set that Ducati garage straight and prove to his employer who the #1 rider is.
Cal hasn’t managed to set anyone straight thus far. He’s got a big mouth but lacks the talent to utilise the things he demands.
