For those with English as a second language - or if it's your first language but you still don't understand it - when Stoner says 'we' he is referring collectively to himself, the team, his family etc.

Brainiacs.

which is why when 'we' had the scaphoid injury it was so dibilitating, all my family had it, my entire team, which made set extremely difficult and also adriana couldn't use her right wrist either but that's another story.. :) for all you no english speakers(that includes Australia)

The truth is outthere I've been watching p racing for almost 60 years and Casey in 4 years has won and been on the podium more times in that time than the post above yours was saying both Kenny jr and Nicky have won less races together in a longer time frame than Casey, point being Casey has always been there or there abouts, you may say whats the difference, only a fool would say the two above were in the same league as Casey. I'll bet my pension Vale would give a nod of approval. I've seen great riders who never won a WC but were greater riders than those two. The flying Scotsman would have eat them for breakfast and he never won a W/championship, but he was a true legend. :) :) :) :) :)

fair dos samas you win the old fart trophy. :)
But your just reiterating my point. I am well aware that neither Nicky nor KRJR are as good as stoner ut I am also equally aware that the same analysis could be levelled at Casey in that he is not even close to Rossi which is my point. Infact it is 2007 that make his figures look so good. Last year he was one of two guys on the factory bikes(I don't include suzuki) who were using BS tyres when the michelins were finished and the majority of his victories(4 I think) were down to Rossi making a hash of it and Casey as second fastest picking up the pieces 'cept of course Qatar... Not trying to dis any riders but it is what it is..

To be fair at Laguna Casey was 1.5 secs a lap faster than Rossi until WUP when Rossi took another 0.7 secs out. Casey nicked pole by .050 sec Rossi but in the most laps in the low digits way more than Casey..
But with jl floundering I'm glad stoner is back or it would be a cakewalk for rossi..

I BET IF STONER DO NOT WIN HERE THEN HIS MISTRY ILLNESS WILL COME BACK AGAIN.COME ON MAN,I DO NOT CARE WHEATHER HE WAS ILL OR NOT. IT IS A WORLD WHERE RESULTS TALK.IF HE WAS ILL THEN THAT IS HIS PROBLEM. AND FOR FACT HE WON A RACE 5 MONTHS AGO AND THAT WAS A BIG FLUKE
