Humored by this...  Glad to see that the fine to Hunter was appropriate.  

Now, just for shits and giggles...  Let's change the roles around a bit.  What if it was J-Coop that went down due to Jett coming in hot and played the game a lap down targeting Jett???  Would it be tar and feathers?  Or a full on execution called for J-Coop???

Moving on to outdoors...  

Guaranteed to be a black flag waving in that scenario and much more crying on the internet, based more toward J-Coop. 

Exactly.

By the way, has anyone in the media asked Jo about his perspective on this???  Wink

I can't believe how wound up everyone is getting over this, JA's pass was aggressive but fine its SX...But Hunter wasn't taking his crap and ran him a little wide to say hey your not knocking me down and getting away with it .... Everyone calling for Hunter to be DQ'd are ridiculous .. It added a little spice to what would have otherwise been a boring 450 Finale and gives us something to look forward to going into Outdoors

If the roles were reversed and one of the Aussies knocked down Anderson and then Anderson retaliated while a LAP DOWN would you be cool with it?

Second question, do you want other lappers to start messing with the leaders in boring races to spice it up?

100% I would have been fine with it... I was fine with JA letting Jett know whos who when he did the helmet grab... In regards to the lappers it obviously depends on the situation if there just doing it for no reason at all then that's definitely not on, but in this case it was a case of hey you ruined my race with an aggressive pass and you're not getting away with it I'm fine with that even if the roles were reversed... Neither rider got hurt and they now know where they stand with each other and they both know they're not taking crap from one another...carry on its great to see some personality out there

And I can't believe the Lawrences are deciding to play with fire.  Anderson could easily ruin a championship for Jett and if it happens, everyone will have that video above to look back on.

These boys are gonna be takin some hard knocks.     The track isn't the same as your $2000 a day fawning fan-bois suckin your ass in the great and meets. 

What a completely STUPID move on Jett to go into JA like that when he had EVERYTHING to lose.   That actually would have been awesome if he broke his bike somehow and lost the championship.      99% just for the fan-bois heads exploding and tears.

 

Yes, let the hate flow through you!

Anyway, Jett's stock went up in my book. I've also liked Jason ever since I watched him practically close down Glen Helen on a Thursday a few years back. All the other pros left and he just kept pounding laps. 

I see nothing wrong with any of what happened at SLC. If roles reversed and Hunter took down Jason followed by a retaliation, I'd still get the same laugh out of it.

Some guys just aren't going to take any shit. Jason is Jason and the Lawrence brothers will keep giving it right back. I don't blame them one bit.

You aren't bothered by the 'fan bois', you just don't want to admit to your bizarre loathing of Jett Lawrence. The amount of times you've stated you'd like to see him be injured, or something similiar, portrays a very nasty side to you.

It's a shame Ando doesn't get it, again, and again.

I don’t understand comments like this. Unlike Barcia Anderson totally owns his actions. See the recent interview where Anderson says “I was like dude what’s your problem. But I was the one with a problem” 

He knows. But he is who he is. These same guys complaining used to worship the old skool days. Bob “break your leg” Hannah

Yes, and it was on the same lap.  It was a lame call, but the AMA should at least be consistent with lame calls, especially when Hunter's retaliation move was actually worse with being a lap down.  Favoritism is displayed all too often with the AMA.

different times, different rules and different officials....Just the fact that they took the decision making ability away from a single individual was a huge step in the right direction....Reed got screwed by an official that couldn't keep his personal feelings out of a decision.

Sweet Jesus, there are so many people having problems letting go. The AMA laid it down, for whatever it is worth, it's over. I'll bet  Jett Hunter and Lawrence (Don't call me Larry) Hunter, and Anderson are all over it and moving on.

Reality Sucks. 

Hey, I'm your life 
I'm the one who takes you there 
Hey, I'm your life 
I'm the one who cares

They, they betray 
I'm your only true friend now 
They, they'll betray 
I'm forever there

I'm your dream, make you real 
I'm your eyes when you must steal 
I'm your pain when you can't feel 
Sad but true

Not sure if this has been mentioned…not going to read 6 pages…but.…

Jett should have been fined.  Watch Title 24 podcast to see the video.  Jett retaliated on Ando and… while neither went down that could have been ugly.  Jason’s foot could have easily been caught in a full reving Jett’s rear wheel.  You can be okay with the brother jumping in…fine I guess….but the AMA ignoring that is bullshit.  That was just before Jett almost went down.  Pretty stupid if something happened to the bike.  Anyway…cue the Jett fans to disagree.

Ha!  It was a pass with minor contact.  Anderson didn’t go down.

Anderson knocked Hunter down and Hunter went out of his way to block Anderson when a lap down.

Think that is an easy win, the 2 ‘boys’ need to watch and not start an ongoing ‘think’ with JA as it could end any title chances.

Me I have no problem with the move by either Jason or Jett but Hunter - really getting lapped?? And then getting an easy penalty for it, should be retrospectively black flagged with the loss of any points.

Messing with the leaders is a strait up bitch move and so is a take-out attempt on a rider for something that happened between other riders. Hunter Bros, lol.

I agree family should always come first. Although Jett is getting paid to win races, he represents Honda when he’s on that bike. His commitment should be to his team during the race and take care of personal business after hours.

Seriously.  All season long it was, oh Jett's luck is gonna run out soon. When Jett got t-boned by Barcia he was quick to jump on here with the "I told you so!"

Yeah, I don't care man. Especially Jett's PASS on Anderson.

Anderson, Barcia, Friese.... How many times have we seen it from them? I think it's absolutely gold that a couple fast guys are willing to give it back for once.

Let em fight.

Wow, the "24" video really puts a new perspective on this...

I am a Sexton fan, but have nothing against the Lawrence boys nor Ando. That said, I will apparently catch hate for this and almost don't want to step in it...but IF (emphasis on the "IF") this is to be deemed penalty-worthy of Anderson and Hunter, then dammit Jett should have been penalized too! Whether it be Motocross or Ping Pong, what are we without rules, and what are rules if not applied fairly?!

Also... Hunter definitely did NOT wash the front end like some are claiming. Jason made contact and it was likely deliberate. Jason may not have meant for Hunter to go down per-se...but he fully intended to force the pass by running Hunter high. Rubbing, racing, bad sportsmanship, Capital Offense...whatever you want to call it, I am not condoning nor taking a side. I do, however, believe that if we are going to call one act in the mix more fallible than the others, Hunter's act was the more egregious being a lap down and his plainly intentional act was to interfere with an ongoing race. Love and Peace. Downvote button is one on the right.

Agreed, because Jett's words were, "he forgot there are two Lawrence's out there and he did it in front of the other Lawrence." Which pretty much confirmed his aggressive pass on Jason was in retaliation for Jason putting Hunter down. I said it before and I'll say it again, if things keep going this way it will be Jett and Hunter vs the entire 450 class.
