It wasn't offensive indeed, but I figured it wasn't needed

ahahah well...

Let me make one thing clear. I am not doing an anti-Rossi campaign as it might look from the surface. And despite being a Dovi fan I am not pissed because he complained about him, either. I graduated from kindergarten in 1996 so I'm done with this stuff.

But this is motorcycle racing: if a guy finished in front of you he was either faster than you, smarter than you, or both things. The "yeah but IF......" is pointless IMHO. Blaming a guy that has just beaten you of preventing you from finishing on the podium is beyond pointless...

Rossi raced really well on sunday and I mean it. He himself is the first person that doesn't need this drama....

I thought both Rossi and Dovi's whining was pretty disappointing after such an excellent race. I totally agree with your points though.

I guess I'm more disappointed in Dovi because I expect it from Rossi.

100%. Dovi didn't talk well either after the race, I have no problem stating that. I understand a rider doesn't enjoy all these aggressive overtakes as much as we public do, but still

What is quite interesting is that IMO we are starting to see a bit of a generational difference when it comes to hard racing. The younger generation have no problem with swapping paint for the most part and just carry on while the older ones complain after or during the race far more often.

Rossi has no problem swapping paint as long as he is the instigator . I really think he feels he is owed something when it comes to positions on a race track. These kids today donít have the history of kissing the ring and Rossi is just another obstacle in their way and he cannot fathom it.

Hmmmm. Maybe contradictory. But I understand.

I think awhile back most of the "Rossi haters" here, turned out not to hate Rossi as much for his racing as for his nonsense off the track, and that the Yellow mob was what really annoyed these "hating" race fans. That is certainly my case. There have been a few really bad moves by Rossi, which I could swallow, if he and his minions would just do the same for the other racers.

He has said as much. Remember that he stated that no one should be racing him who was not in title contention. What a manipulative egotist. LOL.
