His shit attitude towards other riders diminish such point. His evil doings is greater than the very little good he may have done. He could start with you & the rest of the boppers by teaching to respect riders who are beating him.

He is not required to. He was never one for PR work! He is not a glory hog like 46. Are any of the previous Australian champions running a race academy?

Really? You mean having his fans of yellow mustard clowns "yourself included" booing riders who defeats him. Riders who are head & shoulders above him.... He has done more to lower human value attending the sport

So Marc should feel bad for being brought up in a proper family structure? If flopsy 46 had proper up bringing he would be a better person today.

Hmm... I read Stoner's bio a few years ago so I could have easily forgot that. Still and all, if that's the kind of thing Stoner would see as a personal debt to Puig. For the most part Stoner's success is due to his parent's willingness to mortgage their home, living very humbly, and dedicating themselves to his success. His father drove him literally hundreds of thousands of miles going from event to event and wrenched his beat up bikes. The family sacrificed everything for him. As I recall there were a number of people who could have helped him, who in fact went out of their way to block his path. I can see how he would have a narrow view of who it was he was indebted to. He was largely a very solitary kid who practiced obsessively and didn't have a lot of friends. He was pretty bitter at the end after being screwed around by various forces in the racing world and sick of so much of the phoniness and the politics. Not hard to understand that he wouldn't want to invest his retirement time and resources with a field that had disappointed him in so many ways. In the event - I don't necessarily feel that his actions as a retiree one way or the other, diminish his accomplishments on the track. I never thought that a career in sports was a de facto track to philanthropic endeavor.

You are a child of a lesser god anyway. How many world titles did Valentino have before he turned 25. Marcy Marc had 6.
I know it cannot happen but I wish VR would stay around until Marquez wins the 10th MotoGP title. I would pay a lot to see that.

He'll hear about it.

And unleash his hoards to say it doesn't count until he gets 11 because 2015 doesn't count.

Even though Rossi kicked him off the bike.

There's every possibility that Rossi will be on the grid when/if Marquez goes 9x all with a control tyre and over half wth control electronics against the strongest field in a long time.
