I doubt Dungey gives two fucks what Tomac says.
And he has earned every right not too.

This is coming from a big Tomac fan boy and how we won 10 to Dungeys 3* races and its clear who the champ is.

Let the man retire, become a Dad and have a hot wife. I hope in 6 years I get to say the same about Tomac.

However, I dont think it was childish at all what Tomac said, he spoke what he thought. What a lot of people think. Dungeys biggest complaint is he is a robot, so Tomac is the oppisite here. Personality, realness.

Me, I have no issue with Marvin pulling over, KTM pays a lot of money for TEAM KTM and they have every right to do what they did, but if by some gods miracle Dungey only wins by 3 points, Tomac had a point even if KTM did was okay, which it was.

Well then you have no issue with Marvin and KTM blatantly breaking the written rules of the sport, which is why they had to tell a bald-faced LIE about what they did.

It was not "OK." It was allowed to slide by a weak race director with a track record for enforcing the rules inconsistently at best.

Thanks for the data and analysis, but doesn't the data also show Ryan's average lap time over the last 3 laps going up in a similar trajectory? How does that factor into your analysis?

I agree, I don't care what anyone else thinks, getting handed a win is like kissing your sister.

I'm pissed cause I called Marv for the win before the race. I feel I was right and was robbed!

How the fk could you prove it did it on purpose? Damn guys, you're letting your emotions override your common sense. There is no way in hell you could prove what Marvin's intentions were. Did he do it? Probably so. If the roles were reversed, and Grant was leading and ET was 3 points back, you are a damned fool if you don't think Kawi would have done the same thing. Grow the fk up.

Anyone with eyeballs and half a brain could see he intentionally pulled over. I wouldn't be surprised that any factory team would have done the same. Doesn't mean we have to think it's the right thing to do.
Opinions are like assholes, we all got one...

Has nothing to do with a scripted press conference...has to do with passing blame in lieu of owning your mistake. If he didn't shit the bed when he got into the lead this is a non-issue.

Long Live the 2 Stroke!

Everyone says they hate hearing the same thing from the riders week in and week out. They sounds like robots...blah blah blah

We have a rider breaking that trend and speaking the truth about how he feels and everyone loses their minds. Damned if you do, damned if you don't

No argument from me. I'm 100% sure he pulled over. The difference between me and the Kawi/Eli fanboys is that I know any other factory team would have done the same under similar circumstances. Some of these guys are letting their hatred of Dungey cloud their judgement.

Where are you getting that from?

When I watched he said he made multiple mistakes and couldn't get it done. He also said Marv pulled over and it would be a bummer IF Dunge won cause of it.

I thought it was mature and professional, its just the facts. I don't understand all the hate for the guy.

Were a lot of people throwing a fit back when Webb pulled over for Martin?

dizzy I don't think ET was making excuses for his own specific performance that night with those remarks. The incident between RD & MM was 1. Shady 2. Most definitely contributes to the overall points distribution and 3. Makes it that much harder for ET to clinch the #1. It *does* add an extra layer of stink to the championship race, no matter whose "side" you're on. Nobody has been caught giving such obvious "assistance" to Eli. He is perfectly within his rights to say what he did.
|

5/6/2017 10:43 AM

When Eli was asked if he knew what was going on up front between Ryan and Marvin, Eli responds by saying.... Yeah, after the fact I heard about it and it's a bummer. Then goes on to say he would wonder how Ryan can sleep at night if the championship is won by 3 points or less ect ect.

Well of course Eli didn't know what the front runners last week were doing and had to be told after the race. How could he know? He was over 49+ seconds behind the leader! If Eli looses the championship it should be his own performance during the race causing himself a bad night or two of sleep. His team member would have done the same for him that Marvin did for Ryan and Eli would sleep very well I'm sure.
So buck up Eli and good luck to both you and Ryan in Vegas tonight!!

5/6/2017 10:48 AM

This. People were all pissed that Marvin and KTM lied about the team tactics but now when Eli's asked a question and answers it honestly all hell breaks loose again?

|

5/6/2017 11:01 AM

Is the only real answer I've heard at these pressers all year. haha
How you dorks find issue with his honesty is beyond me.

Tough (and pathetic) crowd...

They should look up some of Senna's press conference highlights if they're butt hurt over Tomac's mild comment..
