It is just more of the same arrogance and it is really annoying. It just makes me want him to fail all the more so those people have their noses rubbed in it. It is not about Rossi per se, but the arrogance of putting one man above the sport. It really pisses me off.
We're all well versed in your dislike for Rossi, but like it or not, he's the biggest name in motorcycle racing and possibly the biggest name there has ever been in motorcycle racing so if not bigger than the sport itself he's the closest there is to it. Of course there's going to be a backlash to that from some quarters (as demonstrated by your comments) but Dorna, promotors and TV stations know it - the evidence was there in 2010 when Rossi broke his leg and missed a few races - attendance's and TV viewing figures were significantly down. So Rossi struggling is a big story and there are a lot of vested interests, as well as fans, who would like to see him turn it around.....as well as some who'd like to see him fail, obviously.
I have PM's a response to you - this is not the place to take this further. But for the record, I find your assertion that you have th eright to tell me what I think and feel personally offensive. It has nothing to do with my dislike of Rossi - or his fans. That you cannot apparently see that you (or anyone else) does not have the right to tell me what I think or feel is exactly the point.
