One sentence from Rossi would stop all of this!

It was hard not to notice it. Not a good image for the sport being broadcasted around the world. A prime example of fans CORF-ing.

Sometimes you could almost swear that when Lorenzo receives such treatment he takes it as confirmation that he is pissing the right people off.

Then he puts on his Spartan cape and pokes at them with a broomstick.

Don't know who you are talking to, but I assume you meant that you can't blame Rossi. Rossi and Uccio really went nuts and came up with the Spanish conspiracy theory. The likes of which hadn't been seen since Queen Isabella.

Edit: And let us not forget that Rossi claimed he was afraid to race on the track with the 'killer' Marquez. The other riders snickered, but you can bet the fans bought it. His statement also seemed to influence the stewards. But that is just a paranoid theory, in keeping with the theme.

Absolutely, but he won't do it. He probably actually believes that he doesn't have an eighth title because of the nefarious Spanish plot. Too much dope smoking or just too egocentric to deal with reality. I would be shocked if he suddenly grew-up at thirty-nine.

Oh. Well, I had an excuse to prattle on about this issue, so I took it.
The booing is one of the very few things in racing that makes me grit my teeth. That and Rossi fans wishing Marquez or Lorenzo to crash. Most annoying.

I had a Rossi fan the other day tell me if he won lotto(we were talking about what we would do if we won lotto) he would pay someone to take out Marquez.

Fan, short form of the word fanatic:

fa∑nat∑ic
fəˈnadik/
noun
noun: fanatic; plural noun: fanatics

1. a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal

Fans like the ones this thread calls out annoy the piss out of me. I love Rossi. He was (and still is one of) my favorite rider when he was coming up as it was around the same time I got into motorcycles, racing and GP. I remember watching him pick Biaggi apart on the track, it looked so easy for him.

As fans, these people feel a personal attachment and want to defend the object of their zeal. Rossi knows this and all he has to do is plant the seed and these fans will till it, water it and grow it into this.

Save the booing for the pitch.
