I dont know if anyone saw MotoGP at Sepang last weekend but I have lost all respect for Rossi at this point. I know that in the past he has put Giberneau in the dirt a couple of times but the incident this past weekend was far more blatant. I mean, what if Marquez had gotten hurt?? IMO Rossi's claims that Marquez was holding him up on purpose at Philip Island are completely unsubstantiated.

I dont think the FIM punishment was severe enough either. They should have given him an automatic dnf. Thoughts??

I didn't like what I saw but apparently there's been bad blood festering between Rossi and Marquez for some time now. I didn't see the Thursday press conference but it seems Rossi ripped Marquez pretty good.

I haven't seen every lap of every race so have no idea if something specific triggered retaliation by Rossi, he's been around an awfully long time to just pull a stunt like that out of the blue.
