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 you’re answer then.

What I question; this was place once had serious comedic value which is, for lack of a better word, now sadly lacking. I’m a jackass in support of jackasses.
It IS sad when all of the focus is on non-bike related bs, which 99% of the time here, it is.

I AM emotionally invested in the sport, not so much in the personalities.

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 let’s try being positive, if only for a moment. Marquez is the most fantastically gifted, entertaining rider I’ve been lucky enough to witness in my lifetime. Sure he’s 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 it’s all the ‘haters’ fault. We must be exercised from the forum for our lack credibility isn’t that right RC?
False moral equivalence is the relevant phrase I believe.

I too would get no pleasure from Rossi being booed by erstwhile followers, but along with you would like MM to be evaluated on his (rather extreme) merits, and faults as well given he is far from perfect as you say (my evaluation is that he is as ruthless as Rossi but not sneaky), which neither he nor any other world champions apart from Rossi have been since approximately 2001.
