Pretty sure they did give him an honorary degree.

No worries

I already never really liked doctors....

The more i think about it the more i realize how fucked up MotoGP was for me for so long.

People don't seem to understand the impact this dickheads shadow had on The non yellow MotoGP fans.

Succhia here might be taking it a bit too far however, Rossi had it coming for a while that people will want to kick him when down.

I am actually surprised I can refrain myself from going all in like Succhia lol

He is a prima donna and hung around way too long past his used by date, but hopefully he continues to stay around, long enough to see his records all get beaten.

I'm kind of hoping Marc moves on from HRC when his contract expires after 2020. If he changes teams in 2021 and wins a title on a new machine Rossi fans will have to come up with all new reasons as to why Rossi is the best ever. It will be hilarious and tragic at the same time.

Nah, I've seen it already, they'll say that Rossi was the only one to win with a 500cc and a 4-strokes, or that he has a better record in the first 200 races than Marc (while ignoring the special tires and mediocre competition). Or they'll sprout some nonsense about the "emotional aspect" and his "impact on the sport" (Guess they mean those midpack riders using the bright yellow/green color scheme, and that's not a positive, it's a horrible color). It's a cult, and you can't never put sense in their heads.

You're part of the cult you're trying to act like you dispise. If you view Marquez as the greater talent, why do you spend so much of your time discussing Rossi when you could be talking about Marquez? Why is this forum infatuated with Rossi so much? It's clear that when starting a thread here, if you want maximum particpation, you need to make sure the topic revolves around Rossi. Make a Marquez thread and it's "OH, he's amazing, the best ever, so talent.... dead thread". Rossi is the rider that people want to talk about regardless of whether or not they like him or dispise him. Remove Rossi from the topics and this is a completely dead forum.

Hahaha, agree. They remind me of those flat earther types, they start at the conclusion "Rossi is the greatest" and then misconstrue, fabricate and cherry pick facts that only support this and reject anything and everything else that doesn't with excuses and fabrications.

Come to think of it they are quite creative, probably be very successful at writing children's books.

I'm actually seeing a reflection in that another cult has developed as it inevitably does and in this case, it's the anti-Rossi cult. It's a reflection of the the pro-Rossi blind fandom and in said fashion one can't seem to get any sense in them either. Both sides with the same name calling antics etc. Both rabid in their views. Both unpleasant ...

Rossi who. There was a nice fella by this name in 125cc, I really liked him. But then he disappeared and was never heard from again.

Ah fuck it.

Try to stay away from many of the Rossi threads as I am someone who has never been a fan of the rider or the personality and have said so many times, copped abuse and in some social circles even been 'threatened' because of it but here goes.

Now, I will not attempt to denigrate his results as irrespective of whether he had better equipment, more mediocre opposition or any advantages the fact remains that he still has to finish the race in front of others to get the result ........... do I think he has had advantages - hell yes - but as I have said many many times, ALL of these guys want an advantage to make their job easier, he got it and used it and then was allowed to grow it.

Now, so many of us whinge and whine about the impacts and the favouritism I mention above but we also do not credit what he has bought to the sport.

Remove results but by his manufacturing the personality of a clown or a joking, always smiling and approachable, good for a laugh and only having fun type of rider he built an empire. That empire got more coverage which bought more fans and yes, increased his power in the sport via DORNA but it also attracted many new fans and businesses that were not previously involved.

These fans and businesses bought even more fans to the sport and the sport grew.

It now gets coverage in mainstream news in Australia as an example and certainly whilst Wayne Gardner, Mick Doohan and Casey Stoner all got news coverage, when they were not newsworthy then it was Rossi. This was new as in Australia motorcycle Racing is the poorest cousin of the local club lawn bowls tournaments and gets no coverage and/or money, yet with Rossi's mention we got coverage.

On top of this, he is putting back to the sport and whilst yes it may be somewhat selfishly as he wishes to remain involved with the sport for what I believe are egotistical reasons the fact is he is using his money and influence to develop and grow the sport further. How the F can we be critical of that?

Without Rossi we would not have had riders needing to step up as so many have to challenge him and then beat him, all of these are riders we marvel at up to and including the freak of today that is Marquez/ Sure not all of these riders started the sport because of Rossi but many coming through would have as they idolised him and in years ahead we will be thanking his influence for these riders .

Look, for me I genuinely do not like the cult of personality and this is what we had with Rossi (and have with other riders) and for mine much of the yellow mass has disappeared so things are improving, but when we look at the dark side we also need to look at the light of what he has bought to the sport. Absolutely the growth is not all down to him by any means but the fact that he was able to get mainstream media coverage in countries where there was little or no coverage previously as well as use that personality to his advantages in business terms, should not be overlooked.

Sure, do not acknowledge all that he has done as positive as I will not, but credit where due.
