When I read articles like this, which in fact consist of one brief quote allegedly said by Burgess, I can't help but wonder if the quote is authentic or accurate, or more to the point is it some repeated rumor being used to sell click-bait advertising for arthritic knee treatments. If you watched the paddock action at PI - Rossi was clearly very happy to see Burgess and they had a big old hug; not exactly what you'd expect if Rossi thought Mr. B was bad-mouthing him in the press.

I don't think there's a problem with that Yamaha.

They have sorted out many issues on the Yam by listening to all 4 riders instead of just 1.

Its really funny because at the beginning of the year Rossi did an interview saying that the Yamaha starts off strong in the season and then drops off because the others evolve the bike more.

So much that Poor Yamaha had to publicly apologize (which btw I don't see anyone apologizing to them huh?)

Then halfway through Mav and Fab start squeezing all the goodness out of that agile bike and leave him in the damn dirt.

Karma working 100% here.

At the time he and JB parted there were numerous quotes in the Australian press from JB to the effect that Valentino was past his best. In retrospect JB was correct rather than badmouthing Valentino, but I thought at the time and do now that if Valentino wished to continue, whether or not that was a wise course he needed to continue with a different crew chief who had more faith in him. I have seen very little from JB since then though, and you may be correct about the current thing being a beat-up.
