Maybe crybaby Jordan should go get his own engineers and make his parts like Kenny does.

Good use of facts/data.

Quite a change for Mikey from the NBA where evereyone used to kwotow to him, make up special rules for him and kiss his @ss incessantly.

Mike doesn't have anything to do with Chicago any more. He's back in NC with the Bobcats. Loved him as a player, but as of now, he's just another rich guy wanting to buy success.

Cool Confusing

Here's my beef: If WSB puts rules in place and every team plays by those rules it's evident that what is considered "Factory" support for WSB is not anywhere close to that here in AMA racing. Almost every team in WSB has the ability (money aside) to purchase the same equipment from the Factory. Why don't Corse teams in American Racing get to play that way? I believe that the Graves squad has access to Italia Yamaha engineering (think I read that somewhere) through a co-op deal. I know Ducati Corse isn't going to approach racing in the AMA unless the AMA lets them use the same bikes they run in WSB- (side bet- on the AMA caving to Ducati on that). Why is it that Jordan, Emgo, or any other Privateer can't buy what they need if they can afford it? I still believe that if you're in the race and you have the funds then spend. It can only make the racing that much more exiting.
Side note: I wish the AMA would stop thinking a 35-50 rider field is a good thing. GP/WSB/CSB/ASB don't think that. They are all just fine with fielding 20-30 riders. Keeps traffic down for the "real" racers out there. Heck, that's why support races even exsist. Get the slow ones out of the way- so far out that they can only race support races. 600 supersport and FX can grid those guys. For that matter, FX and SS shouldn't be Factory supoorted with ANY of the Top 15 Superbike riders. That creates imbalance, too.
Ok- I'm all done venting on this for the last two days. Time to find a new subject.

Well, it was SuzukiFest all over again.

Lots of fun, anyway, though. We were playing moto-ball in the parking lot Saturday night until the cops broke it up.

Mladin is winning races in the top AMERICAN series. Why do you hate America?

I don't hate America. I hate people with reading comprehension problems.
