"Casey Stoner has severe chatter problems and still wins the race"

Well, if you want to start talking about Casey, below was Caseys opinion on twitter to Ellison

Casey Stoner @OfficialCS27
"@racingellison yeah I thought you were getting a little too close! I have never seen chatter like yours, that bike needs to go in the bin!"

Bird needs to get a clue and stop slagging his rider off, ar$ehole!

I believe Ellison has ridden long enough to know if the bike is rideable...He wants to be competitive as much as any one else,and I guarantee it iritates him more than anything not to be running with the CRT bikes....GET IT FIXED!!!!!!!!!!and stop blameing your riders..Hell he use to build and race his own bikes and win.

you'd would have thought the art bikes would be sharing data and developing their bikes to mutual benefit.
I know that the rules supposedly dont allow for aprillia factory support but surely the factory will be wanting all the data to develop any future projects. I would also suspect that pbm propably hasnt got the same level of support or development as the aspar bikes for example.

@cant stand the man

"paul bird - the man who binned hizzy for being too old"

Yeah, what a fool! He replaced Hislop with a young guy who won the BSB championship by 130 points, winning 12 races along the way (also winning both Brands Hatch WSB rounds as a wild card) now what was is name....oh yeah Shane Bryne.

Might be a good idea if only to see where they are with the bike. Whether they get what they're looking for after a 1 race 'swop' remains to be seen.....

@there there now

Where exactly does my previous post state i am a Paul Bird fan?
Just pointing out (using facts) that a previous posters example of a P. Bird managerial mistake were in fact a great success.
Whether Ellison or Bryne are or ever have been Motogp quality is another matter.

I find this absolutely ridiculous. James is a hard worker, great rider, and knows his way around a bike. I find it amazing that just because the bike is having issues that they want to replace the rider. Makes no sense. Maybe Birdy should invest a little more money in getting the bike up to par, that way James can perform.
