I believe the "booers" moved their operations to a cruise ship off the south coast of NSW but didnt make it past Eden .... where they were ejected by the Stoner fans.

Marc gets booed whenever he's introduced on the podium. He was even boo in your country. Face the fact, he's a dirty rider with a long history of crashes into other riders and those say he have any personality are full of it. Sepang and Valencia 2015 where he refused to attempt a pass on Lorenzo was the ice on cake. It's a competition between Jorge and Marc to who has less fans and the least charisma. Doesn't matter how many titles he win, he has zero personality and the least fans. In fact, his only fans seem to be the couple dozen here who despise Rossi.

I don't know why and I couldn't give you a real good technical answer but I think it has to do with the peculiar aggregates in the asphalt, weathering characteristics, and abrasion that we get here.

If you live in a glass house don't throw rocks.
Every set of Dunlopís Iíve ever bought , the fronts cupped like a mother fucker. With my size and riding style, heavy on the front, Iím rough on fronts and the Dunlopís sucked ass for me.

Yea, those thousands of people wearing 93 apparel and waving 93 flags are plants from Honda. The term Rossi bopper has your picture beside it in the dictionary. Life must be unbearable for you the last 8-9 years.

""Another defective tyre, it happens too often. It feels as if on Fridays they bring tyres that have been used in other grands prix and they are not good. It confuses you and annoys you a bit."

Also, Dovi got a shit tire
Michelin has a history of bringing leftover tires from previous Grand Prixís. Stoner said the tires he used to get in 06 could be months old.

The theory appears to be that the front brake pads were knocked open on the bump, so when he went for the brake there wasn't any, then he grabs a fist full as he's going at mach 9 towards a wall and locks the front.

Properly scary, glad he seems to be doing ok.

Front locked up, kicked the rear in the air and pivoted sideways and when it came down sideways at 170 mph it was launch city.

Threatening people with physical violence is okay, as long as nobody makes an abstract conjecture about a preference of one rider over the other (the "other" being Rossi).
That would be unforgivable.
