I hope that he knows that from the end of the year the money stops.No more Honda money,no more repsol money and no more personal endorsement money....But the payment on the home keeps up,the maintenance keeps going on.Raising kids and sending them to the best schools costs money...might have to cut back on all the fancy cars and other toys...just make sure you keep enough to last another 60 years as its possible you will live to that age

there, there now....No dig, no point to clarify. I was just being naughty.
Mind you after complaining how bad the chatter was in the first 3 races, why did he have to try to make it happen? Where had it gone?
Still set the best time though.

Amazing as he is on a bike, his defection makes him a lesser "champion" (whatever a champion is) than Doohan, for instance. Doohan was uber dominant, moreso than Stoner, had an almost cripling crash AND also had to deal with all the crap on him wining because he had the best bike and also that he only won after Schwantz and Rainey weren't around (which is true, but only because of those dutch doctors from Assen)...

But Doohan soldiered on, rough personality as Stoner, when he didn't had anything to prove but because he liked winning... And that is the main reason why Stoner is not as high as Doohan or Rossi in my book - Stoner does like to win, yes, but not that much!

You are forgetting a very important and very valid point! Hailwood, Agostini, Roberts, Sheen, Schwantz, Doohan etc...

They were not subject to the Internet! You can bet your bottom dollar, had the internet been around in those former champion's days, us sad pathetic keyboard knobends would be throwing crap about the world champions of the day just as much!

Oh no oh no oh no

who can win the title then?

Rossi? no we won't!!
Spies? no no no no no...
Jorge? YES but he wil stay with Yamaha
Cal? no option
Dovi? no option

And somehow we have to lose Dani to, so 2 factory seats free.

what must we do??????????????????????????????

Live press conference! Stoner to not retire! At the behest of Honda and Sony he's going to return in 2013 for 10 races only. No practice, no qualifying, nothing. Just show up, smoke everyone, lap Rossi, win, go home.
Sony want him back as each and every time he wins the likes of gerfulus, McLarenP, etc all smash their tv's and have to buy a new one.

As a fan its sad to see such a talent leave. As a dad im happy for him. And he really has nothing much to prove, hes beaten the best on their best day with inferior machines and is really dominating now. He's got nothing to prove to anyone but most importantly I think he has nothing more to prove to himself. He know for himself that in his time he truly was THE BEST! Just as as one time in his own time Rossi truly was, past tense, the best.
