Hey crash, You removed my post - the second one posted and had the majority of posters agreeing with what I posted.

There were nothing defamatory in it. Why the deletion?

EDIT by CRASH.NET:
Your chosen name offends some. Also posts purely meant to stir up flame wars get deleted.

Wow the lack of objective fans commenting on here is astounding.

- It wasn't Stoners fault he crashed, it was purely Vale, yet for most of the comments here you'd think it was stoner who took Vale out.

- The marshalls did favour Vale, no if's no buts, paint it how you want, that's the fact.

- Stoner has every right to be brassed off, the rider who took him out, gets more help than he does and then after scoring points from finishing the race goes back to apologies with a TV crew in tow, what did you expect stoner to do congrulate vale for ending his race?

- the only fair thing, which won't happen, would be if Vale would decline to have these points counted in the standings.

1. Marshals pushed Rossi's RUNNING bike, off he went.
2. Marshals pushed Stoners OFF bike, would not refire.
3. Marshals pushed Stoners bike so hard and fast, one Marshal low sided too.
4. MOTOGP bikes sound BAD ASS

Objective fan, you have perhaps not watched the clips taken by a spectator from the inside of the turn - they clearly show Stoner getting a long but futile push. After they set Rossi's bike on its wheels he got no more help.

If Rossi had been up and Stoner was on the ground, they would have picked Stoner up first. Look at clips of other multi-bike crashes, the marshals go to the downed riders first, not the bikes that are already up and mounted.

This whole debacle will prove to be an embarassment for Stoner and solidify his rep as a crybaby.

The funny thing about incidents like this (i.e. nobody got hurt) is that someone comes out of it the villain. In 2006 when Pedrosa took out Nicky in another bonehead move, Pedrosa was definately the villain (what was at stake was FAR greater than this incident).

However, after 48 hours of discussion and especially THAT YouTube clip and Casey's accusations (SuperSic, there were no marshalls nearby, that was all), Stoner comes out the Villain, not for the accident (it was Rossi's fault, end of), but for his attitude and accusations. Should have just accepted the appology and have done with it... Move on!

I wonder what fans will say when ROSSI gets taken out, he takes to many risks to get his way, how many times was it he has been spoken to by racers, And as we have seen in these two races he is taken a lot of risks to prove he can win on the DUCATI, he is not GOD on wheels.'time will tell.

BTW you know how hard it is to restart a bike on a wet tarmac? The rear wheel will just slide. This is why you see riders when being push start fall down on the seat to create a grip on the rear wheel.

Having seen the incident several times I think it's fair to say that Casey Stoner is the biggest complainer in MotoGp history. He originally said he shut off the engine to stop further damage, now he's saying the bike was in perfect condition and all he needed was a push. He got a push, how many people can push at the back end of a motorcycle? Rossi got assisted up, but didn't get any push. I can't believe how whiny someone can be!
