"He hasn't won anything in eight years" -- while it wasn't meant literally, it's obviously wrong-headed on two levels: 1) it shows disrespect to the sport by dismissing the champions of intermediate classes; 2) it shows arrogance on Schwantz' part by not realizing Pedrosa's results are quite comparable to his, and that the difference between his only title and Pedrosa's none is a matter of chance as much as ability.
Puig was right to tear him a new one.
