Certainly many people have become aware of the sport because of Rossi and his antics, but are they a fan of the personality or the sport ................... the jury is out on that score as time will tell

And yes, FWIW I am not a fan of tiresome theatrics but rather a fan of what occurs on the tarmac during the race, that is what brings me to the sport.
True! But as elitist fans we get to enjoy the sport maybe a little longer because their money still counts

It annoys me to go to events where people are obviously there for the glamour or for the "I was there" bragging rights, but ultimately I'm grateful for their mindset.

It's like boxing or UFC events... empty until the main event then all the suits and high heels show up.
