Re: DonÂ’t Count Out Mladin
I have to disagree with you on this one - I think Yamaha will pour their hearts out into assisting Gobert since he'll only ride the Superbike this year.

Gobert is a changed man and if he keeps upright, he will challenge Hayden. He seems to be a more consistent rider than Hayden or anyone else for that matter on shorter and twistier tracks, especially on an underpowered bike (remember how dominant he was on the Ducati in both long and short tracks).

He seems very determined to win this year and is showing it in form of his courageous ride in Daytona. True, the Yamaha is severely handicapped against the Honda but Gobert's talent will overcome it in certain tracks.

That's my two cents...

I guess this is an opinion column and not really 'news' per se.

I hope Hayden wins the whole enchilida. The burrito too.

Gobert. Title. Period.

Aren't you whining about the whining?

Re: DonÂ’t Count Out Mladin
While I appreciate the human element provided by the pieces that you have cited, the bottom line is that I perceive LL's contribution as a puff piece. No meat.

The human side of motorcycling is often overlooked. I applaud MOs efforts to humanize online motojournalism by bringing in John Burns, but this is a puff piece. It's not even a news piece. NOT NEWS! It's an op-ed piece.

After careful consideration I think that the piece is classified as news is one of my biggest objections.

At last...
... it's a valid objection!

I'm taking notes
I'll remember you said that.

Re: DonÂ’t Count Out Mladin
Heh. Unusual comment coming from you Joe_Momma - you usually keep an open mind about things and have good points, but...

Don't you think your being a bit premature about Gobert? :-)

jmeyn 04-05-2002 09:18 AM

Yeah, MO, how about :

1) An Editorial Page

2) A Flame Page that presents controversial subjects with pro/con arguments

3) A Columnist's Corner with by-lines for interesting stuff like LL's post

A bit of web work here, I'm afraid.

A bit of work, but something we're working on anyway...
