Marquez and Rossi

Post by Spencert231 »

i may well be on my own here, but I have gone from a massive fan of Marquez to a serious dislike of the 'smiling assassin' (SA) I think when he was taught English he was taught to say it with a smile. Surely his tactics of obstructing Rossi were not right, morally, fairly, principled, sportsman like, etc. His manoeuvres very nearly caused Rossi to come off at high speed where Rossi's action were at least at a slower pace and made the SA stand the bike up. When I look at it in slow time I swear I can see SA try to nudge Rossi's bike with his shoulder which was the reason Rossi raised his foot. I am so disappointed that SA with no chance of winning the race or the championship would resort to those tactics, it's crazy.

Memories are very short in the media... just look up Gibernau or  Capirossi.
Some of their manoeuvres make last weekends look positively lame!
