Even I think this is a little over the top. Nick should have just met him at the Repsol tent after the race and "cleared the air" :twisted:
Not as funny as the "anybody but Mladin" shirts that were floating around AMA races a few years back :laughing:

just watched it today...

i did have a flash in my mind that dani will take out nicky

but when it actually happened, i couldn't believe it... and i was pissed off!

i stopped watching and deleted it.



if the championship wasn't on the line... i wouldn't be upset.

so does everybody else who isn't in the title run and nicky did well getting #1 in the standings

these last 2 races are very crucial and that makes this mistake by dani very costly.

it's not a big deal to you but it is a big deal to most.

heck! nicky isn't even mt fav GP racer but im so upset. that's not the way to lose the championship.

Just like only winning your home GP and relying on better riders to DNF at other races is not the way to win a championship.

i don't remember all the races this year... i have to check if there are other races nicky won.

anyway... nicky has shown good consistency in the podium. that's still impressive to do in the GP class.

Assen was awesome. Nicky won. (And he was nice enough to let Edwards crash on his own instead of running into him) The reason he was leading the championship is because of his consistancy. He had a lot of podiums and THAT is how you win a championship. Until :censored: Pedrosa, he didn't have a single DNF.

I will admit that Rossi having mechanical and tire problems early on did help Nicky a little.

Verm, I wanted to delete the race after the crash too, but was glad I didn't. It was a really great race afterwards. But I really really wanted to see Rossi and Hayden go at it. :furious:

Oh, bummer. I saw downloading and instantly thought computers. Oh well, the thirst continues.
