In the quest for competitiveness in the Motogp racing series rumors have been flying on additional rule changes to make the racing better in the forthcoming season.

In addition to the smaller engines and the new tire regulations it has been rumored that Valentino Rossi will be required to DNF 5 races in order to give the rest of the field a chance at actually winning a championship.

Apparently the 4 race lead graciously provided by Rossi Dnf'ing 3 rounds And Being Knocked down was not enough for the Would be Title contenders to secure the championship. Other rumors are that Vale will be forced to Start At the back of the Grid facing Backwards if he gets a 51 point lead at any time next year.

Also anyone with more than a 12 point lead with 2 rounds to go will be knocked off the track by an appointed rider.

I don't think that's funny. You should add another rule then:

MotoGP has decided to make the additional rule change of making sure that Nicky Hayden has a bad clutch for the entire year, thereby perpetuating all nay-sayers such that Hayden will never be in contention for the World Championship.

MotoGp has also decided to order that all programming done on Robotface's CPU be in their complete control such that if anyone threatens the World Championship run of Valentino Rossi that the "Crash" button be used within proximity of his nearest teammate or World Championship contender.

Sorry, I'm a bit bitter right now as I'm re-watching the race and I'm furious all over again. Why do I keep watching it? I think I just want to incite so much rage that I provide the most negative energy upon the rest of Pedrosa's career...

The being knocked down part, was that when he qualified so miserably in Jerez that he had to start mid-pack, or when he knocked himself down during Assen practice and hurt himself?

Add in that Nicky is required to have multiple chassis and setup changes the entire year ;)

Yeah, too late for that one. Him and every other rider's setup change with each track.

Not exactly. Minor changes, yes. Nicky was getting major changes (such as entire new frames).

The other Hondas had the same frame and setup all year. All they had to do was change damping, rebound and maybe springs.

It's a lot easier to go faster when your bike isn't different each race...

OH yeah I forgot that you were there at each track, with each team, and each factory as they set up for each race! Sorry about that.

I am sure each team had much more tuning than just "damping, rebound and maybe springs" don't you think. These are world class machines man. Not just the average 600rr doing a track day. =)

I like Nicky too, but I'm so tired of hearing all the reasons he isn't in first.

Valentino swapped chassis multiple times in the beginning of the season. Yamaha struggled with setup and it looked like they might not even be competitive due to front end chatter. Vale just worked through it.

Let's not even talk about DNF's... Two tire failures and a motor failure far outweigh one submarine job by your teammate. You hear people saying that Hayden "handed Rossi the title"... what a joke! Rossi has been dominant all year once he dialed it in. The difference between Rossi and Hayden isn't so much about talent, it's about mindset. Despite all the trouble Rossi had this year I guarantee he never once thought he wasn't going to be champion... and Hayden never 100 percent believed that he WOULD be.

I think Nicky is very talented, he just needs a little Schwantz in him to make the next step. If you think back, one thing every World Champion had is a swagger.

You don't need to be at the track, this is common knowledge. If you pay attention to the interviews Nicky tells you what they did that weekend. Getting new chassis, changing the clutch, trying different springs/settings, etc. He's said it all year that the bike is different every time he rides it due to the changes they are making (ie: New frame, changing the swingarm pivot, etc).

I think he does have the swagger, he's just not an arse.

Nicky is a hard worker, loves what he does, wants to compete and wants to win. If you saw the way he rode earlier this year and at Assen and just before Dani took him out you could see that fire.

And I think you'll see it at Valencia as well.
