Welcome to the Internet of 2010 where real language, grammar or even sense is not used much anymore

On topic: so a visor problem was holding him back from passing Rossi? Or was it just the fact that Rossi was just better? Seems like an excuse to me to garner more attention. He did ride well, but even if he would've been able to pass Rossi, would he been able to make it stick?

I can't think of a time where Spies has made an excuse for anything.

I agree he said there were a few small things that led up to him finishing where he did , as far as making the pass stick on rossi I dont think he would have , rossi would have pressured him to he made a mistake and if he didnt the rossi would have pulled a crazy pass like he did stoner a few years ago

I heard people said they did.

Of course, a parade lap would've been uber cool.

Because this is obviously the first and only internet forum I've ever been a member of. The fact that I knew what FTW meant should give you a clue to the fact that I'm probably down with internet lingo, and that your post just didn't make any sense even in an internet forum context.

FTW can be Googled... http://lmgtfy.com/?q=FTW

"Internet forum context" there's a rule book or a forum that tells people how to properly get what they're saying across to everyone on forums? Can you also tell us what Mel Gibson was trying to get across on those phone calls?
My "context" only seemed to have offended you, I guessing thats why you made it a point to reply to it.

Have a good day...

Your reading comprehension is equally as bad as your grasp of forum-talk.

You can walk around 75% of the track. The Corkscrew is special. They have "Manufacturer Parade Laps" but I have no idea how one signs up for such a thing. Large dollops of cash I suspect.
