I guess he did play his part in Jorge Lorenzo of whom I was a fan finishing his career similarly with a whimper not a bang and also estranged from Yamaha despite winning 3 titles for them; the other riders who managed this prior to him are universally recognised as all time greats and are Yamaha icons in retirement.
I find it very hard to forgive the negative sentiment his various rivals have endured from his significant fan base.
Rossi could have stopped that.
He chose not to.
Rossi himself has exhibited some fairly ugly behaviour toward his rivals.
I won't miss him.

Sure, as a Stoner tragic i apportion him considerable blame for making Casey Stoner’s life miserable by off track means, more than I did when Casey was actually racing at which time I blamed his fans rather than Rossi himself.

He is one of the greats when all is said and done though, and was good from the getgo in the junior classes well before he became Dorna’s cash cow or whatever. While I was very keen on seeing Stoner then Lorenzo beat him, and after 2015 didn’t mind MM beating him as well, I take no pleasure in watching him finish 15th.

Besides JLo he also had a hand in knocking askew the careers of Stoner, Marquez, hell even Spies probably got unholy pressure to get the hell out of the way for his ass.

A new day cant come soon enough.

I just don't want to hear any fan come out from under the dirt and say he still got it or something like that.

Marc and Carl in front of him will avoid that & will also add to my own enjoyment but that wasn't the main reason.

We all have our stories i guess but Rossi has made MotoGp extremely unenjoyable for me for like 6 years straight and when i thought things were starting to go well Laguna 2008 happened and more. I reserve my right to despise Rossi at any stage of his career.
