I have got to admit it Casey is probably one of the most talented Riders of all time no doubt. I just can't bring myself to like someone that sulks at every opportunity and throws tantrums on the track such as when less experienced rookies look for a tow or when somone gets in his way. The man has god like control over a two wheeled machine but he is a little lacking in the personality department. Good luck to him with that sort of talent he won't fail on the track. Can't wait for 2012 to start 5 months without GP has left me wanting!

Roddo....tell me a single MotoGP rider past or present who will allow a rival rider from another team to get a tow, in practice or quaifying or even pre-season? They are out there trying to get the best setup for their bike. Another rider getting a tow upsets the top end performance and aerodynamics of the bike as well as giving a rival a better qualifying position. So Stoner is no different than every other rider I have seen in 50 years of watching the sport when it comes to disallowing tows.

you sometimes hear other riders say someone got a tow from them ie. Rossi to Hector but I have never heard another ride cry and complain about it like Casey. The fact is in a race that's what races do, it happens in all racing sport it's the slip stream get over it.

Rossi has waved his fists and told people to nick off when they were trying to get a tow in practice. What the hell has is got to do with slip streaming in a race? Sometimes a person will ask if they can get a tow and that is OK. It is not OK to just latch onto the back of another rider and muck up their lap. Casey Stoner has let people know it is not acceptable, same as Doohan, Criville, Lawson, Beattie and others I remember. So if some arrogant upstart thinks they can get away with it when everybody else knows not to even attempt it then they are asking to get told where to go.

If Casey is so blazing fast these riders shouldn't even be able to get a tow from Stoner. Of all things, this is the biggest joke to complain about. Riders will follow others to see where there stronger,slower then them not a big deal. This rarely happens anyhow I am more worried about the races being more entertaining, not cry over someone mucking up a practice lap? christ.

Correct me if i'm wrong but i can't say as i remember mamola doohan, schwantz roberts or any of the other well known guys punching a fellow rider whilst ridding in practice i can't recall many other riders saying that they thought passing them was dangerous example stoner v rossi laguna. I did not say stoner was not talented he is just a little unaproachable and tends to let his emotions on camera about his fellow competitors some times get the better of him. I personally think he is awsum but i can see his short commings. Lorenzo is a fantastic talent but i do think he is trying to emulate rossi with his celebrations when winning. Rossi well what can you say his stats say he can ride but lets be fair shall way say his abitions some times outway his talent. This is in no way a personal attack just an observation.
