    Re: MotoGP 2017

    While JL was ignoring his team I was wondering if he was paying MM back. In the end it did not matter. There's no question that MM is a phenomenal rider. He will give VR a run for GOAT....eventually.

    Thank you johnscruiser !!!!!!!

    Thanks for all the hard work this year, JC! I need to get back home, I've been away on business with spotty hotel Internet (50-100kb/s upload speed!), and play with VPS stuff. Glad to hear about the plans, as I said in that PM I tracked/traced the hits per link and it seemed to me something was going on on since Motegi or Phillip Island.

    Team orders suck, but that is how it rolls when you're in a works Team: the Brand and Team always come first and should they falter to do so, they'll put in anyone who will tow the line. What worries me is if that holds true then Pedrosa will never vacate that HRC seat.

    But Valencia was unique, JLO was actually staying in front to help Dovi stay in the fight:

    https://www.motorsport.com/motogp/ne...lencia-977728/

    Had they both stayed on the bike, I'm sure Jorge would have let him by. It didn't matter in the end, of course. Neither had the pace of the Hondas or Zarco.

    Wow, all this teeth gnashing over team orders. Imagine if it had made any difference to anything!

    I'd love to see a rider win without a team anyways.
    The odd times I felt I'd approached the truth, it rested on the premise that people are essentially good and smart.

    Interesting. Zarco half a second off pole time on the 2017 Yam and half a second quicker than Rossi's qual time. Zarco himself thinks it's a much better bike than what he had so far

    Think about the changes that went on between 1999 and 2004, Tires, Motors, Teams, electronics...All of them changed SO MUCH in a very short amount of time.

    Guys like Barros, Biaggi etc all started their careers focusing on learning how to ride a fire breathing 500 two stroke, then all of a sudden they had to relearn and taylor their riding to a 1000cc four stroke.

    No, the riders who were competing against Rossi were not bad riders or any less talented than the current crop. Rossi was just the MM of the early 2000s.

    What makes Rossi the GOAT, is more than just him being a great rider, his ability to develop a motorcycle, and his PR ability is unrivaled. THAT is what makes him the greatest of all time.
    He hasn't done much for the M1 this year and his development ability seemed to abandon him completely at Ducati. When he moved from Honda to Yamaha they were already in the process of fixing the bikes previous problems so it's difficult to say how much of a role he actually played in that turnaround.

    Unfortunately for MM, no matter how many titles he takes, no matter how many races he wins, no matter how many VR46 statistics he obliterates, for some fans, he will never be GOAT just because he didn't duck into a washroom during the final lap, or there were no funny yellow wigs anywhere...

    That's too bad.

    Echo the comments above, many thanks John.
    Are there any links anywhere to any of the previous season's stuff, either to stream or download?

    Totally agree with the above.

    Apologies in advance for bringing up 2015, but for me the more time goes on I'm even more gutted for VR that it happened.

    I think if Rossi won his 10th that year, he'd have retired by now and would be focusing on the VR46 stuff even more than he already does.
    He's so passionate for his 10th title that he'll almost be blinded by the fact that he was at his prime a few years back... furthermore when he jumps on his M1 and wins at Assen for instance he's not going to think that he hasn't got it anymore.
