Of course he did, as I implied; he recognised that he should have been paying more attention and that Rossi was entitled to choose his line or slow midcorner if he so chose given he was the rider who was ahead. The off was a deliberate choice by Stoner however, he was not wildly out of control as Synn maintained. Stoner's other point post-race as I said was that if he had crashed into the back of Rossi no-one could really have blamed him, and it would actually have been to his advantage to do so.

I think his point was that he had to take drastic action to avoid collision twice, once due to his own mistake, but that Rossi's mistake was apparently also his problem rather than Valentino's. The avoidance of a high speed collision when Valentino rejoined the track at the Corkscrew was entirely dependent on Stoner.

Blaming Rossi for Stoner dumping it makes about as much sense as blaming Marky Marc for Lorenzo dumping it.

Oh wait, one is ok here, the other isn’t .

Perhaps you should try to find someone on here who is blaming Rossi for Stoner dumping it then. As I said and as RCV reiterated Stoner himself said it was his mistake. What you said about Stoner being wildly out of control and putting his bike in the dirt as a consequence of same was factually incorrect however as is so often the case.

Wow, Rossi/Stoner again!

I've not been posting over the last couple of months as real life has been hectic (changing jobs amongst some other things) and my interweb access has been mainly mobile phone based, but it's good to see things haven't changed.

The usual fare seems to prevail;

Rossi does alright = He's sabotaged the bike for everyone else (including the tyres)
Rossi does bad = He's ruined the best bike on the grid for everyone
Rossi doesn't feature = Wild conspiracy theories abound about how Rossi is ruining everything.

Fuck me, it's tedious!

Just for some perspective, for someone relatively ambiguous about VR, all the anti-Rossi bullshit that gets posted is as droll/uninteresting as any fanboy contributions and it honestly does this forum a massive disservice, as somewhere, buried in the mass of detritous, are some insightful and informed discussions.

It would be a great thing indeed if these were to feature as the main course and the shit throwing/dick sucking were relegated to the aperitif
RCV600RR and synn like this.

Started by a Rossi fan complaining about MM’s dangerous riding.
