Actually, it makes me laugh! If I'd wanted to write a parody on what I have said about Adams and Schwantz being the last two members of the Stoner-Haters League of America (est. 2007, popn. 12) still alive, I couldn't have done it better. It's a classic. We only need a 'luxury - when I was young'
and it's bloody Pythonesque.. Schwantz with 30 or so words on Stoner and 300 on 'how I did it', Adams trotting out a (slightly modified) version of the 'mystery illness' (without acknowledging what it actually was, yet again) - it's a caricature of those two and their constant take on Stoner. Says volumes about both of them, and one rather feels like one is intruding on the private bitch-session of two spurned ex-mistresses vying with each other to out-vilify that bastard who passed them by. Makes you want to send them over a couple of free stiff drinks and quietly turn on your video camera to catch some You-tube gold...

Yes this was OTT, but there is no smoke without fire as they say and there was definitely some truth to the parody.
We all had some giggles in 2010 here about Nick Harris and the official motoGp feed with much the same, and I don't know if Nick reads the forum pages but he suddenly seemed to find in '11 that there were a whole batch of riders who weren't Rossi, and his commentary improved out of sight - we suddenly found there was stuff, good stuff, going on elsewhere in the field. It's amazing, though, that there are any riders left alive when so many emulate lemmings plunging down any available non-flat surface.
I don't believe you for the anti logic of this couple of sentences. I might be reading this wrong but are you suggesting that chavs read?
Well, of course they do - the short words in big print at the top of the articles. It's all those little words with too many characters in them ( i.e. five or more) that tends to tangle them up..
Sometime back, I wrote that MCN would headline a story about Stoner having caught a cold at Sachsenring and it still being with him at L.S as: 'Stoner spreads disease world-wide'. MCN has eased up a bit, but it could still happen..
