Been getting cooked by Cooper for a while, but it's time to take him off the grill. Last weekend's post race interview and today's interview during RDL were signs that he's cracked and tonight is proof.

What was said during RDL?

Not enough attention at home? Just post in the race thread.

Elito and Kenro had some killer battles with Wilson and Savatgy, so that was cool.

His start was trash. Looked like his bike was off all night. He cased that triple in the heat and crashed, when other guys were doing it no problem.

His post race was perfect. He’s not out by a long shot.

Tomac has a fork in him

Kenny’s only mistake is thinking coop gives a rats ass..
Smack talk etc plays right into coopers strengths. Personally I think Ken should rise above and just keep winning and let his racing do the talking.

I think we will see more from Roczen, just might take a round or two

|

He's dropped 23 points in 4 races to CW2, if anyone is counting.

"You can't be afraid of failing" Ken Roczen...tonight...in his post-race interview on TV...just now.

I think I'll hold off on counting him out.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

It was a good sign, but Cooper isn't going to look back and Ken can't make a block pass to save his life.

How dare you! I made a similar post a few weeks back...the 94 fans were not very happy with me. Hahaa

Cooper has the momentum at the moment, but if you count Roczen out with so many points still left on the table, you aren't thinking very clearly. This is what we want as fans. It's a close points battle, and we actually are looking forward to the next round.

I'm a huge Tomac fan, but he can't buy a start.

Unless something crazy happens in Tomacs favor, my money is on Webb! And I'm ok with that.

Kroc did not crack

He could have thrown all caution to the win and tried to run Cooper down but the risk of ending up on the dirt and outside the top five were too high.

This race came down to the start and Cooper nailed it. Seeing the rut Ken started behind shows more of the story, imo.

If Ken’s and Coopers starts were reversed Cooper would have got 2nd or 3rd. Eye of the Tiger!

Some of these 94 fans are so gay for him they cannot take a joke.

Run Cooper down? He almost got passed by Savatgy and AP left him in his dust. This is not the same Kenny as earlier this season.

Cue the alternate picking ........

Momentum is on Coop's side right now. He's got the bike working well, look at his pass on Tomac in the heat, how he could just turn down underneath. That looked a lot like 2019 to me.

Biggest problem for Ken is that he's been run down from a good points lead by Webb. If it was Tomac there's always a good chance of weirdo race (see New Jersey 2017), but Webb....unless he just throws it away he is 100% in the driver's seat. If points are double digits after the Arlington RESIDENCY then I think it's done.

Coop got that purple purse just to walk Kenny.

The deeper into the season we go it's become clear Eli gives zero fucks for whatever reason. Proof of that is the Daytona race. History was on the line by tying RC's record so we seen a completely different Eli. Had he gotten a shit start at Daytona, the dude was still winning that race, period, and I guarantee he wins it next year too. Not sure why that fire isn't there at these other rounds. He's a tough one to really be a big fan of because if he doesn't give a shit the majority of the season than neither do I.

Not me. Ken can’t win this title. His only chance is if Webb loses it.
