Depuniet Randy broke the same that same year riding the playboy bike, came back sooner than Rossi and nobody mentioned shit.

I will hate Rossi until my heart is content. AKA never.

I am not a million miles away from you on Valentino, since 2015 anyway when much that was hidden became obvious; I had blamed his crazy fans, which doesn't necessarily include all his fans, up until then.

That 2010 tibial fracture was no joking matter however, a compound fracture sufficiently violent to break through the skin. His leathers contained it and saved the fracture from being contaminated allowing primary closure only a few days later, and given that there was no complication, and no infection in particular, resulted in a subsequent recovery probably not much different than De Puniet's. It was still a gruesome injury though, and the sangfroid involved in him returning and winning a race only a few races later while not making him unique on the grid was rather impressive by any criterion, even for me however far removed from being a fan of his I might be.

That's fair, you are being fair.

Rossi has never been fair and I enjoy being a cunt towards him for that same reason.

I couldn't care less if he came back in greed with a recently broken leg only to try and mess with Jorge to prove a point.

That last lap overtake at Catalunya was also a piece of shit move as he blocked Lorenzo to the inside and made him stay there otherwise they would touch and possibly crash messing with Jorge's championship battle.

You've never been a cunt towards him, he doesn't even know you exist. The only person your feelings are impacting is you.

He drove past me once in Montmelo and I waived my fist at him so technically he does know I exist?

I know though I am being a hater & not a cunt.

I do however know I can ruffle some yellow feathers with a half assed try anywhere on the internet though haha.

For that matter, how can we be certain that YOU exist? You could be a Russian Troll Bot for all we know.

The same applies in spades to his fans of the variety who joined the campaigns of vilification against his rivals which he orchestrated of course, many more than those with the opposing inclination over most of his career.

Russians wouldn't program a bot to troll this forum, their bot would troll politcal forums hoping to influence elections.

You overestimate the ability of a sports team or sports figure to control their fans. There have been killings at soccer matches, do you believe a team or player orchestrated it? People are tribal by nature, when they like a particular team, athlete/racer, many of them will start to hate the rivals. Rossi doesn't tell his fan anything, they act on their own free will.

You are the one generalising matters, I am of the opinion that Rossi specifically has orchestrated campaigns of vilification against a number of his rivals in the sport of gp bike racing, hence my dislike for/disapproval of him. Prior to 2015 I blamed a fringe element among his fandom rather than Rossi himself, but the events of late season 2015 made it very clear he was fully complicit. Marquez actually called him on it, then used it as extra motivation rather than being dismayed as were the likes of Biaggi, Gibernau and Stoner, one of the reasons I came to admire him after initially belonging to the Ďmurder marcí school of
thought.
