Had some non-GP watching family round whilst race was on yesterday. The question asked during the race, "Is Rossi all they talk about??"
Kind of says it all really.

On the weekend where he started from pole after a while and in his home race, that's pretty reasonable.

Yes in the build up but not during the race with 2 laps to go whn Lorenzo is about to win for the first time in 18 months on a bike he has struggled to get to grips with. With a pretty reasonable gap and a very dominant peformance.

Honestly, mate. It's like a disease. You're totally right under the circumstances of the weekend, even I was happy for Vale having pole at his home race. But it is every race weekend, if Marc is winning they do refer to him as a 'villain' and quite often either make light of, or even justify, the booing.
Add to that there are constant references to Vale being the GOAT, throughout the race and regardless of his performance.
I get that he brought the sport to the masses and his achievements, especially performing as he is at 39, do warrant him a place at the table of the greatest of all time, but the bias of the commentators is at the point where it is to the detriment of the viewing pleasure of the customers (unless you are absolutely so die-hard a Vale fan that you don't care.)
But when casual non-biased observers pick up on it, then that is the acid test.

1. They keep claiming Marquez has matured? Say what, are we watching different MotoGP races or something? Marquez has never "matured", he's never learned anything. Crash or win, that's about the extent of his mental process, it's not change and will not change because he thinks it's good.

2. Marquez crashes in Mugello and the commentators continue to gush over how well he crashed and we even had to spend two laps of wasted time watching Marquez circle round in 17th with no one around? Huh? Why? There are good races going on up front from 1-6th.

3. The commentators even mentioned they took flak from online sites because they were talking about Marquez too much, geeee, ya think? They're praising the guy even when he's falling down. I don't hear them praising anyone else when they crash?

Marquez is a idiot following his ego and wherever that takes him - he's so desperate to try and catch up to Rossi's numerous records, he's blinded by stupidity. He ran Petrucci off the track by turn 2/3 ... he had a good championship gap, he didn't need to be stupid aggressive, and yet, the village idiot continues his rampage of crash or win.

Had Marquez not crashed Rossi out in Argentina the championship would be < 10 point difference. Marquez isn't learning a thing, he believes he doesn't have anything to learn.

Congrats to Lorenzo, maybe his bad Karma from the Marquez support year and starting a war with Rossi is finally over and the Monkey is off his back ... but he needs to be consistent for the next few races if he wants to retain his job at Ducati ... they will not forget he crashed out Dovi and Pedrosa by not being aware.

Yamaha needs to figure out how to make their bike work on hot days ... how can they be so far behind in electronic sensor calibration relative to the other teams?

Rob.


Let me take a wild guess....you're a Rossi fan?

Keith Huewan and Neil Hodgson.

And it isn't just weekends like this one.
I agree that VR getting a home pole after so long was a massive thing and it added to the atmosphere but those 2 are constant

That's the thing fella, it's not a dig at Vale at all, that pole lap on Saturday was fantastic and I can't even begin to imagine what the atmosphere was like at Mugello, it must've been incredible.
It is just a comment about the commentators bias, regardless of who it is towards.
Having said that I respect both of them immensely as ex-racers and as blokes they have always come across as decent guys. They're just biased, that's all.

The OP sounds like Brexit Remainers in the UK - faced with obvious evidence that announcers are biased towards Rossi can only see the opposite. I fear some form of mental health issue may be responsible, that or a weird combination of drink and drugs.

On a slightly different point, has anyone noticed on Rossi's motogp picture (when they show grid position etc) he looks like a baby chimp. Sorry - but it just makes me laugh everytime I see it.

Back the MMM (Marvelous Marc Marquez) - he did show extreme lack of maturity at Mugello, at the first corner he was trying to break his neck to get in front KNOWING that he was using hard tyres that take a few laps to warm up. I am a MMM fan and this was the first time in a year where he got sucked into the atmosphere and let he testicles control his riding.

Rossi on the other hand was much like CCC (Cal Crutchless Crutchlow) as boring as a Bulgarian pin-up.

All that though for a single pole lap???? If poles always equated to race wins then I could understand...
