Default Re: Defending Mladin Again :)

I don't respect him because he's hanging around to blow his own horn about his race wins and supposed popularity. Real racers want to be the best. He wants to hang around to be a somebody in a nobody league. Is he a good rider? Absolutely. It would be like Hank Aaron never moving up to the major leagues so he could become the all time minor league home run hitter. Big Deal. If you can really hit, go hit with the big boys. If you can't, then stay here and quit blowing your horn. Nicky is on a GP team to be the best. Even if he does average to poorly, he is still racing to be the best. That puts him miles ahead of Mladin, no matter how many wins he gets.

I'm not a big Harley guy myself, but I dont' see HD going anywhere for a long time. And then I doubt Ducati would be able to afford it.

Default Mladin is a weenie...

Mladin is a jerk. He was asked before if he was ever going to step up and he said he didn't believe WSBK or MotoGP were a "step up" in competition. And he was serious. I often wondered why, if this was the way he felt, he never raced in the American WSB races. Now some will say "rules"..but if Mladin REALLY wanted to race those races, Suzuki would make it so. I look forward to seeing him race agaist those guys this weekend. Oh yeah..and remember when Mladin was getting creamed by the Twins last year and he said he thought the rules weren't fair and thought the series name should be chaged to AMASuperbike Twins (even though he rode a twin in the series before)...well now that he's on the hot bike he's telling others "rules is rules..deal with it". Sometimes I think Mladin just whines for the sake of whining.

At this point i dont think WSB is a big step up from AMA.I think Mladin would be competitive;however ,he would struggle in GP.I like him here;it gives us someone to root against and provides good target for Bostroms and Duhamel

Default Ben Bostrom...

What the heck is up with BBoz these days?



I know he's had a rough transition to that Honda, but I really expected that with his WSB experience, he could qualify higher than 8th here...



Maybe he'll move up a few spots from that position once the race starts, but I kinda hoped he might be a front-runner in this one, especially since they're not letting him ride WSB...

Default They shouldn't even race

They should base qualifying on MSF scores and then have a bench press contest and a 40 yard dash.



Isn't that what motorcycling is all about?

Default Mladin sucks

Thanks guys. I knew I couldn't be the only one that thought he was lame.



I guess we'll revisit this post after the weekend and see how well he does against the WSB guys.
