Common Rog!!! get with the picture!!

Pinky works on "being brash" ....... had he waited till say round 2 or three I think Pinly was affeared he may have missed the opportunity for being brash ( it would have been a forgone conclusion by that stage!!) ....... which is a sad testament to how Marco seems to be going [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

I still think that Marco is one of the better riders out there.
If you don't believe it than remember he is one of the few who could actually
run with Rossi and still win.
The only others I can remember who have done that is Sete, Loris and Stoner.
I think he'll eventually be allright.

I had a lot of respect for him until PI 07.

He was in the race. He was pushing hard, he looked like he could score a podium. He made a few consecutive mistakes, and it appeared as though he gave up and settled for a dodgy mid-pack finish.

He's either beaten-down or spoiled. Maybe Honda were right not to give him a Repsol ride.

I had the feeling in Phillip Island 07 he got the tyre choice wrong?
I can remember one of the reporters ( mamola perhaps? ) reporting that his rear tyre was completely stuffed after the race.

Melandri didn't test well pre-06 so i'm not too worried just yet. But marco isn't someone who does well when the bike doesn't work out the box, and has more than confirmed that the Ducati is a beast to ride (as has everyone else whos ridden one). It might be a less than ideal situation for Marco but it only puts Stoners achievements into perspective.
