Rossi - Karma is a cruel mistress

Booing happens in sports all the time. Generally speaking, both sides are no angels. Otherwise we would be flying around with wings/glowing halos on our heads, and holding hands and singing kumbaya. Whatís the thread title again?

Edit: added ďgenerally speaking ď.

Rather narrow-minded, aren't we?

It's the unfortunate reality. Fans can behave like buffoons.

GP bike racing is rather different than soccer though, the risk of injury or even death is much higher than soccer, where the risk to life and limb is probably greater from the fans than participating in the sport itself.

It is precisely the transfer of the soccer hooligan mentality to gp bike racing that traditional followers of the sport/old fogies as the case may be find objectionable. This is partly no doubt because the sport is a lot safer today than in the golden era 500 days which brought many of said traditionalists/old fogies to the sport, but one of the things Casey Stoner said at the time of his retirement which contributed to his retirement was that it took only a scant few weeks after Simoncelli's death for situation normal in regard to backbiting/vilification of riders to return.

The haters are just as bad as the boppers.
Your opinion to which you are entitled, but the number of "haters" involved is still probably several orders of magnitude different on the opposing sides; I can see a philosophical basis for retaliation becoming no different than perpetration though.

You can get back to me when Marquez starts fomenting vilification of competitors by his fans. I don't recall any of the other world champions who preceded him in the Rossi era doing that either.

Rossi will have a very successful retirement in any case. I read an article only yesterday suggesting that the end of Spanish dominance in terms of new riders entering the sport is nigh, with more talented Italians than Spaniards in the pipeline now, which is mainly and probably correctly being attributed to Rossi.

I'm assuming that a goodly number of the Booers will be ex-Boppers.
And the fact that Rossi could stop the current Boo-ing with a word or three only increases the Karma Factor.

Bit of trolling redirection there. Iíll give you some credit youíre the subtle ally of the sinn sledgehammer, yet the message is the same.

If fickle Rossi fans end up booing Rossi? This proclaimed hater says meh? Not really all that interested interested tbh. Now remind me again of everything Rossi has done for the sport, unlike others who only risk life for far less fame and money.

Now letís try being positive, if only for a moment. Marquez is the most fantastically gifted, entertaining rider Iíve been lucky enough to witness in my lifetime. Sure heís no angel, reckless abandon personified. but being routinely booed while standing on the top step of the podium. In any other time he would of been loved. Yes I know itís all the Ďhatersí fault. We must be exercised from the forum for our lack credibility isnít that right RC?

You guys (all of you - pro and anti) have a very strange infatuation with Rossi. Its like nothing else happens on a Motogp weekend other than how Rossi affects everyone. Sad for you.

Well Ďthis guyí yes Ďmeí questions when the fuck did this place become so serious? It ainít Ďsadí peeps hang on what happens to their hero or antihero on a motogp weeekend bro. Thatís kind of the point, sports demand emotional investment. If you want to question the logic in emotional investment into sport, while in the meantime all this other terrible crap is going on in the world? I think you have youíre answer then.

What I question; this was place once had serious comedic value which is, for lack of a better word, now sadly lacking. Iím a jackass in support of jackasses.
