Like it or not, most fans want a little exuberance with their racing. Pedrosa was nicknamed Pedrobot on these very forums and an 'L' word most commonly used to describe Stoner would be laconic. Rossi's antics for the most part "worked" because they were expressions of exuberance - maybe it was in the delivery, maybe it was because it was new, but in Lorenzo's case it just comes off as lacking in sincere joie de vivre.
