Yeah, he's been my least favourite racer for a while because of the moaning and dismissing of others abilities but comments like this are a move in the right direction. Showing some due respect to the other champions in there is good to see.

I bet Casey must get fed up of being asked the same question over and over again "who do you think will be your closest competition". Im not surprised he cant be bothered with the media most of the time, I mean its not as if they (or we come to that) dont already know the answer is it? Just look at the timesheets FFS!

Casey isnt' half the moaner he's made out to be. I mean, have you heard that unhappy Ducati rider lately (and lets not forget how much more he is paid, and how much Ducati have bent over backwards for him).

Hard to disagree with Casey's appraisal, but I would put Spies in the mix as well. Not as a title contender, but fighting for wins.

When it comes about moanings and alikes, there will always be some (many !) short memories : the biased ones !How much he might have moaned during all 4 years, is well exceeded by some1 else within one single year in the same promise land.By far !

journalists need to open a few new doors when it comes to asking questions.
if you've read one you've read em all.
dave emmett is the only one that goes to interviews well prepared with a good assortment of original questions up his sleeve .
as always stonsey speaks from within and answers the questions best he can.
he just ain't being asked anything new.

Here we go again....Stoner has never dismissed the skills of other riders or had a bad thing to say about anybody else in the paddock! As for his whinging...all he has ever done is be honest about the bike and why he was going fast or slow. He had harsh things to say about Rossi's pass at Leguna Seca and that was a fair comment, not a whinge. For God's sake, he just complemented Rossi and still some people have to stick the boots in.

I have to disagree with you about respect I have always found stoner (which I am a fan)to be respectful of his peers.There is one rider though who has never ever had respect for his peers right through his career, he rides a factory ducati and his name is not nicky hayden. and I have been following GP racing for a long long time and he is one of the most disrespectful riders I have ever seen.

I think the bookies are in for a rude awakening. These bigger bikes suit the riding styles of bigger riders a lot better than the 800s did especially over race distance...Nicky, Val, Cal, Ben, Dovi. There will be some shake-ups that we were not expecting.
