Very well put! He not only hit him in the corner, but sealed the deal by basically pushing him off the track insuring the win for himself. It was exciting racing up until that point. That was just plain dirty.

That sort of whacks any talk about Foggy being more aggressive than Rossi. Anyone who uses a MotoGP bike as a pin-ball, I ain't messin' with. Still, if Biaggi had done it to Rossi there would be calls for his hide. I love to watch Rossi but I have to agree, the Doctor should get hit with malpractice.



As for Fogerty, he should see about getting bit-parts in Guy Richie films. The flash-backs would suit him.

Thanks! I found Fogerty's crack about Gibernau disturbing, too. As for the Spanish, give then their due. Sure, that running-with-the-bulls thing is pretty out-there, but they seem to have a motorcycle culture that is second to none. Never much-cared for Franco, though.

Good old Carl. He never got over his bout with mad cow disease.

To me the answer is simple. Both of these riders have tremendous respect for one another, and it's deserved. On any given race day, when Foggy lined up for WSB, it was likely that he would win. When Rossi lines up for Moto GP, it's likely that he will win. Sure Foggy is confident. He couldn't have won those races if he weren't. Which would win in their prime on the same machine? We'll never know.

Good job Sean! I'm a Rossi fan but I pretty much agree with your analysis. We had a heated group discussion over coffee the other night. 4 avid race fans and one fan who's an ex-roadracer. Mr. roadracer says Rossi made the right move and he would have done the same thing. Everyone else in our little group agrees that Rossi made a hairball move in desperation to win the race. I finally drew a picture for Mr. roadracer and he backed down a bit. One things for sure, that was an exciting finish and we can't wait for this weekend's race.

Once-again, the apples and oranges have faced off against each other, and we're left with fruit salad.

That's exactly what I've been saying all week. Thanks, Sean. It's good to be right once in a while.
