What is embarrassing is your complete lack of insight and lack of understanding of the concept of irony, which is mainly what triggers me where you are concerned. People complaining of bias in others while ignoring their own is a pet hate of mine. Am I biased?. Sure I am, I am a poster on a fan forum. I have reasons why I have come to the position I hold in regard to your hero however, and I find it hard to overlook what are his imo significant past and continuing transgressions against the spirit of the sport which I follow rather obsessively and pedantically as is my wont, and actually feel happy about him winning. You on the other hand will abreact to almost anything positive said about Lorenzo or MM (I wonder what they have in common?) while calling out others for reading only to react, and if you are not on many occasions deliberately posting to elicit a reaction then you have even less insight than the meagre amount with which I had credited you.

Interesting for one who in the last 24 hours bitterly complained about a certain element among Rossi fans being dubbed the Valeban to fashion a personal insult, apparently a devastating non-sequitur/zinger by your own assessment, which involved making light of Christopher Reeve's quadriplegia; see the above.

If we are to fashion insults based on the cinema, as I have said before from my perspective, which perhaps oddly is what counts for me as yours obviously does for you, I see you as the Black Knight in the the Mont Python film; I suppose I shouldn't bring that film up, you might start saying "ni" to me.
Hey! don't talk about my cousin the "Black Knight" like that he just a naughty boy.

Don't agree about Pecco though, I think Milller will do very well as Petrux has gone.

That was a tough choice, and being an Aussie I naturally want Jack to do well. I think pecco is more talented than miller. Wouldn't mind being wrong though.

This is going to be Dovi's best chance at a title because Petrux isn't going to be a threat to him. Lorenzo and MM swapping points may open the door for Dovi to sneak by. JL is probably going to gell with the RCV well, so it becomes a battle between him, MM and AD. Possibly MV if the M1 gets sorted out. MM still the favorite but I think this is going to be his toughest challenge to date. I look at every year and MM has always had a challenge each year. It just changes with who the challengers are.

Marc’s 4 titles have been won by an average of 39 points. Take away his rookie championship and the other 3 have been by an average of 50 points. This year appears to be headed toward a 70 plus margin which is going to put his 5 title winning margin at somewhere around 45 points. Had it not been for that bullshit black flag in 13, his average would basically be winning 5 titles by 2 races per title. There has been a guy who finishes 2nd in the championship in those years, but none have really challenged him except for Lorenzo his rookie year. In 15 he beat himself, in 16 with another shitty bike, he learned 2nd’s and 3rds win titles when you can’t finish first. In other words, Marquez is the only rider capable of beating Marquez. Out of curiosity , I checked his point total today compared to 2014 when he won the first 10 races and 11 out of the first 12 and he is only 23 points behind after 14 races, and that’s on the second best bike, not the dominator the 14 RCV was. It’s going to take an anomaly like Honda whiffing in spectacular fashion or an injury for him to lose a title anytime soon. He is just that good.

I feel the same even tho I have serious doubts about anyone being able to beat MM in a title hunt.

He's always had the speed but he is just too consistent nowadays.
