And he just wrote another one, part 2 of his prosecution of Marc. Ladies and gentlemen of the yellow jury… is how his hack pieces should start. He interviewed Mike Webb and used his interview something an extension of his smug question during the press conferences, this being an extension of his prosecution of Marc, where exploited this opportunity to pose hypotheticals about the “new” harsher penalties and how they might have been applied to Marc at Argentina. This wasn’t even that subtle, if his aim was for Webb to justify the penalties based on precedent, then why didn’t David Emmett ask about the obvious parallel to Sepang 2015? Mike Webb even concedes that they go back two seasons to look at precedent, yet Webb glaringly omits along with Kropo’s help and fails to mention the Yellow elephant in the room that no penalty was imposed during the Sepang race for which Argentina should have been judged BEFORE the NEW rules were imposed!

The logic doesn’t stand up to scrutiny, and the decisions of Argentina and COTA suss out the glaring fact from the penalties as follows: penalties are imposed on a whim of who is the supposed perpetrator (Marc) and victim (Rossi). In the Argentine case the perceived victim (who left the door ‘wide’ open, more on this below) was treated exceptional, where even precedent was dismissed. That is what Lorenzo referenced when he point out at COTA, things have NOT changed, no doubt if Miller had stuffed Rossi there would be hell to pay. Race Direction would have pointed out the “new” rules of course.

In the same piece Kropo starts off by describing Lorenzo “leaving the door ‘wide’ open” to of course inoculate his gullible readers into spinning that it was ok for him to get stuffed. This is of course done for affect, to justify Mike Webb’s inconsistent application of the “new” rules, given he didn’t impose a penalty on Miller for irresponsible riding. In Lorenzo’s case, Mike Emmett justifies the maneuver by describing Lorenzo not just leaving the door open but “leaving the door WIDE open”, and tah dah magically this is nothing like what Rossi did at Argentina. Kropo then spends several paragraphs supporting and spinning Mike Webb’s inconsistency.

Kropo also inoculates his gullible readers into accepting that the absence of penalty on Canet was done with scrutiny unbeknownst to us. Krops writes in such a way that we should all accept that Race Direction did their job as they are privy to the to camera angles that us ignorant people can’t see. The inconsistency of Race Direction is a mirage.

If you don't have a problem with journalists committing character assassination, it speaks volumes about you and your ethics or lack thereof.

That's fine, but we're not discussing me.

Journalistic integrity used to matter and you're obviously okay with a complete lack of integrity on the part of David Emmett who uses his website as a platform to disparage riders for various doings that he decides based on whatever way the Dorna wind blows. He has never once taken the keyboard and done such a thing with Valentino Rossi. That you appear to have no issue with this speaks volumes about whatever integrity you have. Michael Scott was the only sane voice on the subject of Argentina and gave a balanced look at the entire incident. He didn't do what Emmett did and start whining for race bans which he never did in the case of Sepang 2015. He characterized Rossi's torpedo of Stoner as a "misunderstanding". He is not "okay" as you put it. Far from it. He's become a Dorna mouthpiece.

Krops has evolved as I mentioned before, now I don’t recognize the guy. He's become obsessed with prosecuting Marquez, it's very transparent and rather obvious. It's as if he had been waiting to redress being bitch slapped by Alzamoron, though he's taking out his anger on Marc. Krops really exposed his intention when he smugly repeated the same bullshit gotcha question to Marc then again in the press conference. Hey guys, perfectly legit question here, do you know the starting procedure? Even Cal Butthole caught it and pushed back a bit by replying, "David you've never sat on a GP motorbike on the grid." Emmett's smugness was exposed.

Emmett is cognizant of his place in the food chain. Knowing a "journalist" was coerced into destroying an interview he had recorded of Mike Webb, I'm sure that put the fear of Dog in him. But really, since 2015 and his stint for BT Sports, he's become part of Fucks and Friends Dorna edition.

As I have said, the Kent piece was what put me off him permanently. I don’t know what article Barry read, but the one I read was basically a complete destruction of Kent’s character and personality.

Everyone knows Kent fucked up, but he is a young bloke who was good enough to be moto 3 champion in the fairly recent past, and if he is out of the sport or running last so soon after same it is regrettable I would have thought, and I am not sure why there was any necessity to further put the boot into him.

I don’t read Emmett’s blog any more, but the snippets I hear/see from others certainly suggest he follows the Dorna narrative now. Like Barry I originally enjoyed both his site and his posts on here.
