    I would agree. Next few races should see someone blink.

    Although I wish no harm on anybody, what I would like to see is Toprak take himself out making one of his over aggressive passes. And then on the same weekend he does the same and collects Rea. All the while Redding wins and Gerloff is on the podium each time :D

    This Toprak guy, is this the same guy not too long ago, everyone was saying that he was safe to ride close quarters with? What happened?

    I sure disagree with that.

    `racks passes are almost always clean.

    What usually happens here…Monday morning quarterbacking with a large cup of wishy washy.

    I’m offended that you would dare call us Monday morning quarterbacks… At least have the decency to call us Monday morning racers! :crackup:

    Haven't quite figured out what everyone is so butthurt about with Toprak. Dude races hard but I can't recall him actually knocking anyone off their machine. As hard as many of his moves are, most of the time he only displaces his opponent by 1 bike width. Rea has proven many times you can safely lean on Toprak. He's not punting people most of the time. Yes there is occasional contact but again, the fact that no one has actually crashed and rarely are pushed significantly offline as a result of one of his moves I think is pretty telling.

    I'll chime in...

    Toprak might touch Rea and that's cause Rea doesn't give him his place.
    When Toprak gets dive bombed, he lifts up and gives way instead of leaning onto his opponent. Same goes for Redding, he stands it.

    The perception that lots have that Toprak is "rude" don't see how he is able to avoid his opposition stuffing him and him reacting quickly to it.

    This past wknd was the best racing ever... SBK and SSP. All 5 races were awesome.
    Wish Rea stayed up in both races and Toprak in the last one.

    Pod Dropped.

    Dude was bounced because he couldn't get Gerloff to find the line of performing while not crashing others out.

    Yes, because he should've rode the bike for GG so it's his fault. We'll never hear the truth.

    You wouldn't believe the truth unless it matched what you already decided happened anyway.

    I've been meaning to bring this up on the BBS. Am I the only one who just skips the wsbk podcasts and only listen to MotoGP because Gordon Ritchie speaks a language I do not understand? I hung on for as long as I could but finally decided last month that it's useless to try, I'm just wasting my time. It's no fun listening to just one half of the discussion. :D
