Oh, shit son. Itís terrible when actual quotes get in the way of forum propaganda!

BRB, getting some popcorn to watch the Ducati bitchfest for the rest of the year.

Cognitive dissonance is an unsurprising character for someone who voted to make ĎMurica great again, but I will spoon feed you the actual quote from you that I was replying to.

In a sport of Divaís that is gentleman like. Probably the biggest whiner of that group is Dovi, must be an Italian thing.

Canít find it, but Pedrosa had an equally whiny response too once the cameras were gone. Something about race direction not giving him the time of the day.

All 3 riders were annoyed, they all crashed out of a race.

All 3 riders thought there was fault with the other 2 riders, probably because there was, although in retrospect Dovi probably had the least fault, his only fault being to make a pass that wasn't going to stick, leaving himself open for an immediate re-pass which would have been fine if only he and Jorge had been involved.

Their comments were orders of magnitude less inflammatory than Rossi's comments about MM on 2 occasions, both in calling MM a dangerous rider and pretty much a general threat to the sport after Argentina, and calling him a cheat who was aiding Lorenzo's title chances after a race MM actually won thereby depriving Jorge of points in 2015.

So yes, their comments were absolutely quite gentlemanly in comparison with Rossi's. Dani even directly said he was not calling for Jorge's suspension, which could be interpreted as him differentiating himself from Rossi's whine post the Argentinian race.

So if I call you a turd instead of a stinking cunt, that’s gentlemanly?
Ok, you’re a turd.

On that note, I'd anticipate Dovi leaving Ducati at the end of the season.

I am a biased Australian gp bike racing fan, and while Ducati are currently looking as though they are considering for a second time dispensing with the only rider who can ride their bike, admirable though Dovi may be a spring chicken he is not, and if he is holding out for something like current Jorge money he is asking Ducati to repeat another previous mistake. I donít think putting say Jack Miller on the factory bike for 10% or 20% of such money is necessarily completely stupid.

I like Dovi too, but that is a good shout, Mike.(if you don't mind me being familiar).
How long did it take for things to fall into place with Dovi and the Duke? Quite a few years, in fact it wasn't until his first dry win that it all seemed to click.
Who's to say that that wouldn't happen with Jack? As you pointed out, Jack has time on his side.
Personally I would like to see Dovi and Jack as factory riders.
My highlight of the season so far is a toss up between Marc's gravel slide in Jerez and Jack's slick qualifying laps of Argentina.
