I should have made it more clear Stoner is the one that complains the most... it's pathetic... he wouldn't have a clue what was happening if he raced in 500GP's in the 90's... GROW A SET!!!

The more you post the more desperate you are to talk up Rossi with his stats and to put down Stoner and his ability. You and LC are acting like nothing more than cheerleaders. You are annoying not only to Stoner fans, but to bike fans as well.

no two fractures are the same. Rossi just broke his finger and the subsequent swelling must be pretty major. Its a fresh wound so testing should be off the table. Even Hopkins took some time off to let his finger heal for a bit. To me, its common sense.

Hayden is uninjured and will take over testing duties. Throw Checa in there to help out and you can get a lot of work done.

@ LCtanner
"Makes all the other riders on the grid look pretty average dont you agree."
No I do not agree.
It does not say a lot about your hero does it, when he cannot beat average riders, your words not mine,
And it is a poor workman that blames his tools, comes to mind.

How many Ducati GP pilots are healthy right now? Nicky and Randy DP are it? Out of seven!!

After years of all the riders struggling on the 800? Even Casey complained of vague front end feel and they did nothing. Sent Melandri to a shrink, ran Casey off, and after all these races in the 800 era, they've had only two winners.. Stoner and Capirossi (motegi 2007).

Hubris, I tell you.

@Reality i used to be a Stoner fan... a massive fan of his from 2003 to 2008 but then he started complaining about riders being too aggressive and it really was pi$$ing me off... i used to race 125's and i know how aggressive people can be but i gave as good as i got and if he didn't like it he should have fought back instead of complaining... his problem his if someone gives him an elbow-to-elbow race he usually loses out... that's why i admire Rossi he'll fight if he loses out he'll congratulate the rider for a great race even if it was aggressive why can't Stoner be like that once in a while ?

Also it is nice to come on to a Rossi article and have people defending him against all the Stoner warriors... so yea I'll put Stoner down for many reasons and I'll put him down to defend Rossi too and I'll put him down because i like watching racers go at head-to-head on track and enjoying themselves and congratulating each other after instead of one whining about every close/small overtake

I used to be a Rossi fan, but then I saw how he would throw tantrums when he wasn't on a bike that had an advantage over everyone else. He was able to sandbag in a weak field, but now we see that it wasn't the rider.

I think he took on the Ducati challenge to "prove" he was as fast as Casey, knowing that he had an advantage with all the development money being thrown in. I mean ... it's crazy how much extra assistance he's got this year.

Makes sense why he didn't vetoed Casey's move to Yamaha. He really has been exposed this year.

He's an alien, for sure, but Jorge and Casey are better.

@Horses you're a prime example of someone that loses faith in a rider because their not winning... it's happened a lot this year and i bet when he starts winning a lot of you who were once his fans will become his fans again... you just support who's winning.
