Marini really did Bagnaia a solid in the championship. In contrast, Borenzo really didn't help Dovi and hurt his chances during last year's battle against WinOrBin.
Ducati would have had a championship had Borenzo fell in line to help.
yes Lorenzo should have started working on pit crew to make Dovi faster. What a selfish person! Otherwise, I'm not sure what you are referring to how he hurt Dovi's chances.

map8 was a joke because that wasn't going to make Dovi faster. If he couldn't pass Lorenzo, he wasn't going to catch MM. Then when Dovi had his chance, he binned it. I suppose that was Lorenzo's fault too?

LOL you guys just lining up to throw shade at Lorenzo. Meanwhile, we have people leaving BARF because people talk smack about Rossi. Funny world.

Well, you have been a more neutral participant in these "fan discussions". Me, I just set people off. Sometimes on purpose. Sometimes just because I am me. No matter. I just post for political reasons, apparently. (See elsewhere).

It is rather unfortunate that biases are blinding people to some of the best riding ever in MotoGP. With the rules and danger and what not, I don't know how long Marquez and Lorenzo will be around. It seems silly to ignore their outstanding skills because you like someone else. MM really is mind-boggling sometimes.

On another note: I just bought a Eddie Lawson replica helmet. Amazing how long ago it was that America dominated the champion series. Eddie had FOUR 500 championships. He was no chump. And now we have no body there. Really hard to believe.

Edit: btw, Lawson won races for THREE different manufacturers. Below is the helmet I bought:

Well, it could be revenge, or leveling the playing field or squaring the corners. Or other terms regarding response to what others have done, first. Or it could just be to have a discussion. Just because someone wants to debate something doesn't me they want to elicit a negative response, believe it or not.

I am pretty sure you just trolled me, by your definition, didn't you? You could have said a lot of things about what I posted, but chose to "troll". Seems normal for me on barf, today. Either that or every opinion is a troll. What's your troll, I mean opinion, on that? Or can we talk about racing?

Have you noticed his pit presence? It's not unusual to see Takeo shove his face right into the mix when decisions are being discussed.

You ever here the story about running into an asshole at breakfast? It's basically a bad morning. Running into one at lunch, that's a bad afternoon. Running into one at dinner, time to wonder if you're the asshole.

Yes... it can be. Several posts noted as such of late as well as the political barb as well. This will be addressed if it does not stop.
