what's with the boo birds for Ricky?-if your a big McGrath fan your gonna have to get over it. And if it's because of goin around Travis, i didn't notice anyone gettin all upset when Travis bumps Larocca last year in the middle of a triple.
or for that matter-Brown takes Ernie into the bales every chance he gets and he's a "gladiator" according the the renthal adds, but Roncada moves over on McGrath and Bailey acts like it's the end of the world. Travis needs to remember- if you want to finish first- first you have to finish

Travis spun around on that turn and jumped straight into Ricky's path. Ricky didn't nail him. He pulled up to a stop and bumped him over.
Travis was almost able to save it.
My 2 cents. YMMV

I was there also, but on the other side of the dome. And YES... I was giving Ricky a hard time that night and the kids had a rope with his name on it.. for taking out there HERO. But.....after watching it on TV I saw Travis miss the inside line and try to recover only to find Rickey looking for the same turf. It was a great battle and I would love to have seen a clean finish, but I hope if Ricky could of stopped, He would have. Just my 2 cents. What a great night !!!!!!!!

Ricky would have had a legitimate beef if Travis had knocked him down. Travis doesn't have one.
I have never been much of a Ricky fan, but he does ride fast and no one deserved that booing.

As fast as those guys are going and making split second decisions I think it would have been hard for Ricky to totally aviod Travis. After all Travis was taking the outside line and then cut back inside. Ricky was just holding his line.
Plus, its not like Ricky has a history of pulling moves like the french riders.
To me it looks like Ricky has the line in this picture:
And yes, Vullimens move on Ricky was clean too.
