What about idiotic riders like rossi who arent capable of working out whether their actions are dangerous on track?

Arrabi has said this 896 times, every single time as if nobody has ever heard it. Ha!

It's something Wayne Rainey originally said.

Come off it Barry, there have been far more dangerous riders than Rossi and you know it.
It's only by luck that Marquez hasn't seriously injured anyone, He very often rides through a corner with complete disregard for who's already there.
Not saying Rossi has never done it but he's the only one getting singled out for it.
There's many others too.

Anyone wishing death or injury on a rider, whether joking or serious is not a fan of the sport (IMO).

Such statements say more about those making them than it does about the subject involved no matter what that person may have done at one time.

We are critical of the Valeban, the yellow hordes, the yellow sheeple and what not who wish ill on a competitor of Rossi. Two wrongs do not make a right and wishing ill will or ill health on him just makes those wishing it as bad as those they despise (IMO).

Being honest, I am not sure that we have ever had to many 'dangerous riders' as such but certainly have had riders who have had a number of 'dangerous/negligent' incidents when compared to other riders over similar times, but dangerous riders that is a different implication altogether and I would not include VR either, just as I would not MM.

Today's field is quite tame by comparison to many over the years where riders pushed the boundaries when it cam to how to treat on track rivals, dangerous riders are not words I would associate with those of today. Fuck, if some of these people who we may call hard today, rode in the 70's, 80's and 90's they would have shit themselves at some of the tactics

There's an interview of Kevin Schwantz who was defending Rossi's manure (pun intended) of Sepang 15. He said what Rossi did wasn't really a big deal, in fact, he suggests, it's 'just something riders do to send the message we don't like how the other guy is riding' (I'm paraphrasing, perhaps someone can find exact quote). Schwantz said he's "annoyed" at how people don't understand what Rossi did, implying we're all ignorant of some racers racing parlance. Frankly I never heard of such a ridiculous thing, I guess that makes me ignorant. It's fascinating Schwantz defended Rossi's actions at Sepang, and gave Rossi wide berth to entertain the Great Uccio conspiracy theory of Philip Island.

I think I got it from the BT Sport commentary, Jules Ryder in particular. He also used the term 'in the trenches' for the European rounds, which also fits nicely.
Certainly though, these rounds are the acid test for a teams success.
