I don’t have any problem with Rossi wanting to win titles as a team manager just as Agostini and KRSR did. Like them, I suspect he will be attempting to do so as manager of the factory team. He should get on with it though imo, at the moment he seems to be keeping Yamaha in a state of limbo by continuing as their lead rider, with Vinales wasting what should have been the best years of his career, although he may have been over-rated previously.

His chances of finding a young Italian rider with talent to match MM’s are vanishingly small imo, less than his chances of winning the fabled 10th title, given that the answer to the question of how many riders there have ever been who are comparable to MM is quite possibly less than 1.

Petty.
Children are innocent its what the adults do to them that causes change. I wouldn't say I hate Rossi, just loathe him, as a supposed role model he's an abject failure in human terms, do we go around egging on our fans (all 20 of them when I was racing lol) to cause grief to others, I certainly haven't ever and refuse to resort to underhand methods of baiting. This weekend I hope to see Vinales put him to sleep in the race and not in future come out as a support in talk about the bikes failings.

Hate is a strong feeling. And it still means the person in question means something to you. I can say only I don't give a crap about Rossi. I liked him alot when he was young and, IMHO, real nice fella. But then he turned into a moron and I lost interest. I just feel sorry for racers who are suffering because of his dirty tricks.

100% agree. You said all I think about him in 3 lines. I've never been good at summing things up
