    Default rossi vs brock

    was in one of those legends and superstars stores today, for $4k you can buy a signed V Rossi helmet or hand over $5k and buy a signed P Brock helmet. the choice is easy if you could afford it?

    Yes, very easy.

    Maybe I'm too young too understand, but it seems to me that Brock has prostituted his name just a bit too much...

    I dont think I could pay that much for either.

    If it was a signed Aytron Senna helmet then that would be different...

    I'd buy the Brock helmet...





    And flog it off for even more money to some poor unsuspecting Brock crazed fan
    But if I was buying for myself, of course, I'd take the Rossi helmet

    I have always been of the belief that the 'Polariser' was a means of terminating his contract with Holdens. I remember the Brocks relationship with the HDT management was very bitter and they were being anal as far as ending it was concerned. He did have one weapon though, and that was complete control over what went into his cars.

    Enter the 'Polariser' - something so inane but mandatory in every HDT car that they would have to wind up his contract or become a laughing stock.

    He would never be able to admit that it was rubbish for fear of being sued.

    That has to be the best theory I have heard all year. The one flaw I see in it is that if Brock was smart enough to think of such a way to end his contract with HDT then surely he would have thought of something that enhanced rather than damaged the fine reputation that he had.

    my first thought after seeing the helmets - this shop is called "superstars and legends" isn't it. Rossi 1, Brock 0.

    Brock is still very herbal and into crystal power and such guff. He can certainly pilot a car and can spot a television camera at 100 kms...

    A choice between Rossi's helmet and Brocks?
    No contest, all hail to the Doctor!

    I also think that these 'Superstars and Legends' stores are parasites out to make a buck.

    When I am famous (ahem) I would only give signatures addressed to people, like "Jessica. Great pic in the Toad Pond. Love ya, Dave".

    That way the operators of these stores couldn't sell them so easily for exorbitant prices...

    You will find that most of these are fake and forged. I know a guy who owns one of these and he's spent his life making signature forging an art form.
