Kicky, kick, kick.

It's pretty plain to see what happened in this video (to anyone with reasonably unbiased eyes that is....)

Soup :: In Riposte: More Footage of Rossi vs Marquez at Sepang :: 11-04-2015

As per the article from Soup below, even the legendary Agostini was of the opinion that Rossi "Lost His Mind" after observing the course of events at Sepang. Former MotoGP Race Director, Paul Butler, echoed like minded sentiments:

duckdawg for me, personally, it boils down to this...

Is Rossi bigger than Moto GP?...

He and all his fans must think so...

will Moto GP survive without him? Yes... (he only has a year or two left, at most)

He lost his cool, and doesn't want to accept the consequences...

Is Jorge a Douche? Yes, any alpha male is. But his said douchery is provoked by an opponent who is apparently above the law...

getting a court involved in the first place is a complete example of how spoiled Rossi is...

and picking a fight, with a kid who can ride circles around you, is a calculated and executed excuse for losing a championship, to your team mate, who is by your own accord, faster than you...


Rossi cracked. or the biggest fix in motorsports history has occurred, you draw your own line in the sand...

RAZR51 Lorenzo is starting to look like a real douche. He needs to shut up and ride. I think he'll end up and Ducati.

duckdawg now Jorge files s lawsuit against the appeal, what a clusterphuk...

Jami6989 Jesus Christ! OB is having another meltdown! Can't turn my back on him for a minute without him coming off the rails. Dude is blinded!

OK OB, everyone is out to get Rossi and you and his fans are the ONLY ones who are right. Haha, priceless stuff!

Should've retired when he killed SIC!

Like I said, look at the lap times.

mrgrn Where is Sete' Gibby when you need him

Hope riders let Rossi go by easily allowing the season to be decided by racing NOT by MM having a tantrum because he pissed away his season and could not take a bit of banter warranted or not.

It has IMO been one of the best seasons in a long time for several reasons. Who would have thought Rossi would be in front? Who would have thought MM would have tossed it away so easily? Who would have thought we would have 3 former champions battling for great racing so late in a tight championship and Dani being healthy

I think somehow they should not let the scene ruin the championship and postpone or delay the penalty until after the season. I can understand if Rossi and JL got in this mix but MM is a whiny little cry baby refusing to accept his lumps. Racing is about the fans and at this point i don't know how they can not let the last race and championship come down to Rossi against JL for the pot and for the greatest season in a decade IMO

Old Baldy BSESS, let's see if we can get agreement on the facts, as we see them?

1. Rossi was in front at the time of the incident.
2. The leading rider has the line.
3. A following rider has to avoid a leading rider.
4. The leading rider can choose his own line, as long as he does not push a following rider off the track or make a sudden change of line or swerve into another rider.
5. Rossi did not push MM off the track.
6. Rossi did not make contact with MM.
7. Rossi did not kick MM.
8. Rossi did not "suddenly" swerve off line. He purposely and (relatively slowly) pushed MM wide to try to disrupt his drive off the corner. This is (up to now) a legal move.
9. MM leaned over further and came back into Rossi. Clearly seen on the videos.
10. MM's line came into Rossi and they made contact, ultimately causing MM to fall.
11. There is an unwritten rule that a rider always tries to avoid causing a crash or major disruption to a another rider who is a championship contender/leader, when he himself is not a contender. This is a wide-spread and acknowledged aspect of racing.
12. MM has crashed multiple times in the races this season, for multiple reasons.
13. MM made it very clear by his super aggressive passing and unnecessary battle with Rossi that he does not consider (11) important, for Rossi. Watching the battle, it seemed almost inevitable that one of them will crash. And so it happened.
14. MM let JL come through without ANY type of challenge, zero attempt at come-back after his mistake let JL through. Nothing at all. Just let him get on with it. That is absolutely clear for anyone to see.
15. RD said BOTH riders were at fault, but Rossi made the "illegal" move.
16.RD has not explained what EXACTLY that illegal move was, given that Rossi was the leading rider, had the racing line, did not kick MM, did not push him off the track, did not suddenly swerve into MM.

I'll take your comments about the Civil Rights Act and the KKK with the humor I assume it was intended and turn it right around to you. I agree that there have been a LOT of incongruent and illogical statements made in this discussion and decisions made.

And now, after having already agreed to disagree on the topic, I'm finally done with it.

I will change one thing.....

I think there is now so much scrutiny on MM and his track actions, that he WILL try to win the last race of the season to attempt to prove his neutrality and his speed over Rossi and everyone else.

So, I think that the race order could be

1. MM
2. Pedroso
3. JL
4. Iannone
5. Dovi
6. Rossi

...and Lorenzo takes the championship.

4. What did Pedrosa say that was anti-Rossi on this issue? The fact that he did NOT come out strongly in favor of MM indicates his dilemma on the issue - because he's been taken out by MM himself and yet is obliged to support Honda and MM on this one.
Well one has no chance of presenting objective points for consideration when the other party is wholly close minded and unwilling to entertain viewpoints other than his own such as is the case here. Talking to you about Rossi's culpability in this mess is like trying to argue the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with Bald Imperial Grand Dragon of the KKK.

Still looking for Dani's quotes I read before about Rossi being to blame. This is what I found thus far: MotoGP News - MotoGP Malaysia: Rossi has contradicted himself, says Pedrosa

1. RD - said that BOTH riders were at fault in the race. They, very interestingly, decided that Rossi made an illegal move on MM. No-one is quite sure exactly what that was, as Rossi had the lead and thus the line, and simply moved way off line in an attempt to slow MM down by moving him off line and run wide. He did not kick MM nor did he drive into him, nor did he run him off the track. MM could easily have avoided him but decided to turn into him, as is seen clearly on the videos.

2. The FIM stewards clearly decided that the damage was done and decided to just stick with the decision to avoid a huge and embarrassing issue. They did not feel there was sufficient evidence to overturn the RD decision, even if it seemed harsh on Rossi, given the above. boohoo.

3. Lorenzo - yeah, he's a REAL unbiased opinion in this, as the ONLY championship competitor who directly benefits from a Rossi penalty. Your listing him as an unbiased influencer of this issue is hilarious and shows your own bias here.

4. What did Pedrosa say that was anti-Rossi on this issue? The fact that he did NOT come out strongly in favor of MM indicates his dilemma on the issue - because he's been taken out by MM himself and yet is obliged to support Honda and MM on this one.

I'll rent that tiny house for your party celebrations for all three of you....

Lol, the same unbiased Casey who has always been butthurt about Rossi getting the better of him in certain races and who was one of the world's biggest MGP whiners about everything, and who left racing to go fishing?
Hilarious!!!

Is that your "Deepthroat" source, Baldy?
haha, all three of you sprouting the odds about Rossi fans being close minded and with zombie like loyalty! Priceless stuff!!!!

Everyone's opinion is wrong except our own, correct? It's a very small group, you should stick together. Perhaps have a little party. I'll rent the tiny house.
