2. Marc's talent, combined with a candid review of the various incidents from Argentina-
Are refreshing to hear coming from someone in the media

We have to bare in mind that, prior to Argentina, there were no calls for bans or a tightening of rulings on racing incidents or for that matter complaints about the safety of Marc's riding.
Then, all of a sudden, it seems the sport has been turned on it's head from one race, a race let's not forget that was plunged into chaos from the very start due to a delayed start.
Marc's racing in the big class has never called into question until the one time he clashes with Vale and is seen as the 'aggressor.'

I am not having a personal dig at the Vale fans on here and I admire that you have the courage of your convictions, but come on, fellas, surely you can see the correlation here?
Incredibly brave I would have thought if he seeks to make some sort of living from the sport.

I occasionally wonder, particularly given reports of interview transcripts being destroyed, whether even such a small corner of the internet as this with a view alternative to the desired narrative is disliked by organisations as well as extreme Rossi fans/Valeban members.

Michael Scott has been making a living from his articles for a long time and imo he's at a level where he can write whatever he thinks, it's going to be read by a large audience and appreciated.
Restricting his access would not be advisable as he wouldn't shy away from revealing who sanctioned it.

Jumkie says he believes Michael Scott is a member of this forum. I'm wondering who it is .....

I know its not synn, talpa, danski, rcv5000, motovudu
....

Is it Levi? Because he once said the oasis ... thing?

In general he could have been RCV, but they do seem to have a rather different attitude to the recent race weekend in Argentina.

I disagree on RCV. Sure he starts off giving some petty concession but in reality sticks to the same old bopper diatribe for the real issues.
I cant see how you thought of RCV at all. It would make a farce of everything he writes on here.

Sure, you are no doubt correct.

I have a book by Michael Scott, I'm going to read some paragraphs and compare them to writings on here, see if I can see any similarities.
