"how come rossi doesn't get this abuse for whinging about Englands very own cal crutchlow? I quote, rossi said 'f**k cal was a problem' referring to being held up by cal in the first 5 mins of the very first session of jerez!"

Because you need to go to a dictionary and look up the word "context" Rossi wasn't being serious, but obviously humour is wasted on you!

The move by Simo cuased a gap the front two. That is a fact and Casey stated that fact.

His tire did not work well on one side for a couple of laps so he slowed down. That is a fact and Casey stated that fact.

On one lap he gestured to his pit crew that he was having trouble with his back. That is a fact and Casey stated that fact.

How these are interpreted as whining are beyond me. How they are different than what other riders state when asked about how their race went is beyond me. He did not use them as an excuse for not winning. Just how his race went.

It looks like CS having the fastest bike is not enough for him to win the WC,as we all saw in 08-09.CS to win needs a bike that is hands down the fastest like the rocket he was on in 07.

Seems as if most of the moaning is coming from armchair critics who are wonta be's but never where or never will be's, not from a rider who is siting 3rd in the World Championship.
Typical internet junky's, got nothing better to do with thier lives.

Lol! His back locked-up, but the last podium place is his.

His mind game hurts "my shoulder" even more... :p

P/S - I know that pain on the back muscle when you get such crazy shake by the bike on the first lap. It's only happen on the Japanese bike though. You could get the same crazy wiggle on Ducati, yet it catch nothing to any of your muscles.

So, let me get this straight... Whenever Rossi answers a media question regarding an injury or says anything, it's propaganda...

Yet, when Stoner does the same thing, it's the Australian nature of telling it like it is... I mean really, back pain from seven years ago..? Is that the story that they are going with...

Sometimes, it's just best not to say anything...
