Casey Stoner, the greatest rider with the most natural talent the world has ever seen .. good on ya.

It's kinda sweet to see Rossi struggle.. can you imagine if Casey came out and said 'its hard to judge the potential of that Ducati, because vale doesn't seem to be trying that hard'... oh the irony.

Go on Casey, win munber 10 in Malaysia!

paper champion, it's satisfying to know your feeling all depressed. He has Honda's an Ducati's ONLY titles in the 800era and yet you Rossi fanboys still MOAN.

Want the definition of a paper champion ? Where are the people Vale won the majority of his titles against ? either retired, retiring or in WSB, a second tier division. yes.. think about it. idiot.

This is a monumental moment for Casey in his Career. He has now understood that his talent can carry him anywhere, any conditions and any bike. Confidence is the greatest technology in any sport. The human factor is what makes this sport so interesting.
You dreamers (most of you english) that think Casey won this because of that BLAH BLAH wake up and enjoy it. The Ducati was 8th in 2007 without Casey. The Honda this year is 3rd without Casey. The Yamaha would have won at least 5 more races this year (based on 2nd's) without Casey and we all would have hailded it the greatest bike ever made.
At least Jorge has some class. He understands what the difference is this year. Casey has a bike "as good" as his own and the talent has done the rest. I will admit though, i am sort of starting to like Jorge. He has really matured this year and i now look forward to some fair and square 1000cc battles with these boys over the next few years.

PS Marquez??? Honestly bring the little fella up. He is a great talent but these two above are special, just like Valentino in the naughties.
Bradl (MM's yardstick) couldn't hold a candle too Tony Elias let alone the likes of Stoner etc. Marquez will win MotoGP races because he will always have Repsol money paying for his factory ride. But Dani had all of these things too and it didn't do SH** for him.
Marc has been blessed with the poorest 125cc field and by far the weakest Moto2 / 250cc era i have ever witnessed in my 23 seasons of watching every damn race. This is actually bad for him. What made Jorge, Dani & Casey so good was the fact they all had to beat each other. Marc will find out just how tough MotoGP is and i don't dislike him at all. I just want to make all you "anyone but Stoner" fans have a think about the facts and not expect too much from him.
Anyway, singing Advance Australia Fair on Gardner straight today with 50,000 other Aussies was up there with marrying my hone
