Default Simoncelli Deserved Worse

A drive through that put him in fifth place wasn't nearly enough for that stunt Simoncelli pulled. He should have been black-flagged. It's not like this is his rookie year or anything.

I guess there's some small measure of satisfaction that he blew a guaranteed podium finish. What an ass hole.

Okay, Ken...

Who is Simoncelli, and what race are you talking about?

Ken- He deserves to sit out the next race for the move that put Dani on the ground. I don't really like Dani, but what Simo did was sh!tty all the way around.

Sunday's MotoGP at Le Mans.

Simoncelli is one of the riders, he cut Dani Pedrosa off in what is at best a rookie move, and at worst very bad sportsmanship. As a result, Pedrosa, who had just finished recovering from a severe injury, broke his shoulder. His entire season is probably over, at a minimum his chances at winning the season, which were good before this, are now gone.

Ah, so!

Isn't Pedrosa the kid that cut off his Honda teammate (or forced him off the track) a few years ago?

Karma, perhaps?

Yes, Simoncelli means "Nicky Hayden" in Italian.

Nick doesn't ride agressive like that. Even Rossi makes a bad move occassionally. Simo has a history if undercutting the corner to force the "line" rider out. Honestly, it's amazing he hasn't thown away more bikes. But he does need to sit out a round and think about his standing in the championship.

Oh I know. Karma was referring to Dani Pedrosa taking out Nicky in similar fashion a few years ago.

Have Spacesuit - Will Travel. And, yes, Simoncelli deserved much worse. What a bonehead.
