I am not a Rossi fan and that is mainly because he has the worst fans I have ever encountered in just about any sport. You can brag on him and say he is great and they still get angry. Only thing that makes them happy is to say he is the greatest human that ever lived on the earth and is better than everyone else at everything. And you must add that all other riders suck and do not deserve any thing they have achieved..they only achieved it because Rossi allowed them to. Is that about right?

You can't argue with statistics, is that what the argument was? Well here are some.
And now for your enjoyment, I once again dig up my old posts . . .

Rossi vs Stoner - Head to Head - Part 6
2007 to 2010 In head to head, when both of them started the race on factory bikes, but only to the end of 2010 as Rossi is scared to ride the Ducati fast, for fear of having an accident. Therefore, it may not be fair on the Chosen One to be expected to compete under such harsh conditions. Stoner defeated Rossi 33 times and Rossi defeated Stoner 30 times. As usual my posts will not receive a response because facts cannot be argued with. Best to say that once upon a time Rossi won something, and that the Ducati that Stoner rode was not only better than everything in the field but it also had the most traction control.

"You fanatics will only be happy when Rossi is winning again constantly thing is those days are gone"

It doesn't matter if Rossi is mid pack, old, has been, beaten by stoner, we will still cheer for him. And to us, unless stoner has more championships than Rossi, stoner ain't ****e!

Stoner will win 14+ races this season, then make a comeback in either 2014-15.


Rossi has never, at any stage of his career, been in Stoner's league as far as rider ability is concerned.

"Rossi has never, at any stage of his career, been in Stoner's league as far as rider ability is concerned."

Correct! We knew this when he started racing as a backmarker in the 125 and 250. His first championship on the powerful Ducati never to be repeated. Second championship on the best electronics bike honda. I should say that without Honda, stoner would be a one hit wonder. You are absolutely right, stoner will never be a 9 time champ and will never be in the league of agostini, Rossi, doohan, or haIlwood.
