Have you guys forgotten about his 9 titles (7 premier class)? Why the hate? Did we forget his greatness?

People need to hate.

When Rossi start winning again it will stop.

Yeah, its very easy to label him a 'quitter' for giving up on the Ducati. Mind you its also easy to label Stoner a quitter for walking away from the championship.

There is one simple reason why Rossi MUST move to Yamaha... He has only a few years left in MotoGP, should he spend them fighting with a difficult bike which has no guarantee of being fixed in the next year or two, or should he not spend his last years in MotoGP with the opportunity to fight?

Whether that fight gets him podiums or wins or championships is irrelevant because he needs to be racing and not not 'fixing' at this point in his career.

can't blame him for leaving Duc. they been having problem with their bikes for years and they can't seem to fix it. Rossi want to win. How can you fly like an eagle when you have a turkey of a bike to race on.

Just cause you arent dominating all the time doesnt mean you stopped being a badass. He walked about 20 feet in front of us near the busses at the track last weekend while we were talking to Colin Edwards and people went nuts - could def. feel the love. He didnt stop to sign autographs though. Bummer.
