+1... If you're the ONLY one running the line, chances are everyone else isn't wrong... JMOsooperman12 said:Bad reaction, but I think it was the inside guys fault. That's a wicked right hander, leading to a left (sort of like Assen with Colin and Hayden). No way was the inside line going to finish. He was the only guy trying the inside line. He would've gone straight into the grass. But the reaction was uncalled for. The other dude was on his knees and he pushes him back to the ground. AMAZING restraint because if I were the green dude, I would have tried to rip the helmet off the other guy.
The reason they're saying its Green-dude's fault, is not because he got into the corner first, which technically he did, but he didnt do it on the right line. If Xaus was further behind him and Green went through the corner like that, Xaus would've easily gone behind and inside him after green ran it wide..pelele said:the inside guy was the first one to the turn, how is it his fault? that's how passes are made, you make it to the turn first, those behind you have to slow down. fault always lies on who's behind....unless you're making an obvious block (weave back and forth more than once).
I'm thinking the green guy was a lapped rider and that's why the xaus was so ticked...either way, if I'm the green guy I'd protect myself.
yeah, thats another restriction, probation, and fine for mr xaus!Gingerbreadman said:+1 ^ the outside buy shouldn't have done anything after running into the green guy, damage already done, just bad PR after that.
All Im saying is that he wouldnt have run into him had the Green guy cut him off.. its onething to stuff him and make him stand it up, but when you stand up your bike and the guy still cuts in front of you, thats different imho.. Ruben had nowhere to go, even after standing it up and slowing downpanda_stunter said:if you guys watch the video carefully, ruben xaus touched the rear end of the green bike making it to lose traction.
and from the trajectory of the green bike, its looks like a legitimate line.
bottomline..thats ruben xaus... i saw a motogp vid of crashes in season 2004, that guy was in that vid for at least 5 times. he has the most publicity from that vid!! which is bad publicity!
