Ok guys the cats out of the bag and we know now what we all suspected. I'm starting this new thread and want to hear what you think about this. The more I think about it, why don't ducati release Rossi NOW! Bring someone in now if they can, so they can get a head start going into next year. Whats Rossi going to offer them now, nothing! He's given up and been no help so pay him to sit home and bring someone young and fresh into the program. Thats a no brainer! Who do you think thats out there and do Ducati need to still let Rossi ride the rest of the year?
