Didn't EA have this game called Road Rash back in the day?



I for one would tune in religiously if they allowed racers to use chaines and pipes on their fellow riders...

The post-crash fight was ugly, similar to the tiffs basketball players get into. If you can't square-off and throw a decent punch, don't try. But, really after falling off a bike at some 80 mph what damage can you do to a guy with his gear on? It was humiliating to Fania I suppose, but I felt sorry for Yates who just looked foolish.



BTW, Yates team mate is awesome!

I've watched the video over and over and it appears to me that Fania was holding a line allright, unfortunately, not a line that would have gotten him around the corner. I can understand Yates being upset but as much as I enjoy him as a racer, I cannot justify his post crash actions or the actions of his fellow crasher. But, he had the sense to confine it to running off at the mouth and gesticulating, which we all know, is OK. Physically attacking bad, pointing at your crotch and telling someone to suck it, OK. Yates had this coming as he seems to be a bit of a prima donna. If Yoshimura doesn't buy out the rest of his contract (after all, they've already saved themselves $25,000), he'll be lucky to get a renewel. He's embarrased Suzuki, Yoshimura and the AMA. Japanese factories don't like that.

I really like Yates. I just wonder if Yosh Suz gives these guys azzhole pills before, during and after the race. With Mladin crying like a baby for 2 weeks before and then whining about the announcers of the race, and Yates playing kickboxer, it seems they must be.

The fact that you referred to my ass as "hairless" shows that you know nothing about my behind!

Default he actually misses 3 races for the season

no points at Daytona. And the suspension is a double-header so he misses 2 more. 3 missed races means he's a gonner. I think it's not just the riders. The "pills" theory has some merit I think. Not that Yosh Suzi drugs anybody but that purhaps the local team itself behaves like this and so the riders are having their lousy natures reinforced instead of countered. According to some the team was ticked off at the lapper when they should have given their rider a good schlacking for messing up THEIR damn season.

If you score even higher in the game you can acquire a cattle prod!
