Rossi has matched and maybe even surpassed Doohan in one area - Their constant moaning. Doohan was always complaining about this and about that, and now I have to listen to Rossi doing the same. He should try doing a real job day in day out, then he might realise how lucky he is.

@ LCTanner

Wow you actually believe your own Dribble?

If Stoner can win on that Spewcati...he can win on anything!
If want to keep justifying for Rossi not so great performance...Then I guees keep making more dribble!

Very good post by LCtalk it up.
Marquez has been described as rossiesque.
That means he races hard, swaps rubber and bashes fairings. If you have been watching moto 2 at all you'll know what i mean.
The guy takes no prisoners.
He has the killer instinct that stoner does not possess.
Stoner likes to run away out front with no conflict.
If and when Marquez moves to the premier class and repsol honda he will destroy any hope stoner has of equalling any of doohans records.
Will be interesting to see how stoner handles that situation.
Stoner wont know what hit him.
Call it dribble ?
Thats fine, i've been called worse things on this site.
Doesn't bother me at all.

So Doohan raced and won against hasbeens for 5x WCs?
By that same logic, Rossi raced and won against hasbeens for his 5x WCs also?

Stoner won his WC against 2x WCs, Hayden and Rossi. Lorenzo against 3x WCs, Hayden, Rossi and Stoner.
If Stoner wins the WC this year, then it will be against 3x WCs, Hayden, Rossi and Lorenzo also (and three credible riders on HRC factory bikes)?

So should Hayden, Stoner and Lorenzo be held in high esteem as they beat the GOAT fair and square?

Reading the huge amount of posts to this thread, all it's done is change my mind on a few posters.....

Mick Doohan, Retired ex-champ who's record is now set in stone.

Vale, ex-champ who's winning ways appear to have left with his Yamaha ride. Still employed so "could" improve his record.

Casey, on fire leader of the 2011 points collectors looks like his stats are still rising. So as Mick said "Could".
Could, not will or has. Could. It's that Simple

2. that part of the statement rings true for Valentino until he came up against the BEST MotoGP rider in the world. Stoner.


2008-2009 Vale was the Champ against your so called Best. LOL


2011 Stoner is still the chump, sorry!

@Facefacts
In 1992, when Wayne Rainey won title #3, Mick Doohan won 5 of the first 7 races (plus two 2nds) before being severely injured at Assen. In the end, Rainey only won 3 races that season, getting 140 pts overall, with Doohan 2nd on 136 pts, just 4 pts adrift, despite missing 4 races before coming back to race the last two rounds, even though he could not even walk!
You obviously know stuff-all.

Stoner has already done better than Doohan, he won on 2 different brands of bikes and very different animals they are. Doohan never left the safety of Mama Honda, who had arguably the best bike from 1995.

Casey's mentality?
you judge on his past on a hard bike that a GOAT said he couldnt ride that crasily as Casey did.how easy that is even a child can say so.
look at Casey now on a proper bike.how many DNFs ?.remember JL's first 2 years on smooth handling M1?.
jeez you just hallow zink barrel to beat up.
JL still owes a huge thank to Nicky's honest advice that he backed down to being man up to take Ducati challange in late 2009.

Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo are the fastest (at the moment) but they really destroyed motorcycle racing but who knows? 1000cc and everything could be different.
