@Yousef, interesting post. Can you now post the statistics per year that Casey didn't start, didn't score, or didn't finish? Nicky too? Rossi too?

More stats:- 2010 Casey's last year on the Ducati
After 5 races 35 points.
2012 Rossi's current year on the Ducati
After 5 races 51 points.

Realist & Really
I don't believe any racer, at any level, should get slated. On Crash it seems that people revel in the riders misfortunes, poor show.
Stats can show whatever you want to read into them. The stats that I produced seem to show that Rossi is performing better than reality it's comparing the 2 on vastly different bikes, even though they're both Ducati's.

If only the championship was decided after 5 rounds hey? Ooopppps haha!

Oh, the stats for DNF's / DNS's.....

2008 - CS 2 DNF
2009 - CS 4 DNS
2010 - CS 5 DNF
2011 - VR 3 DNF

Stats dont lie.

Forget about who your rider of choice is and look at things with common sense.

Show the results and stats to a guy who doesnt know either guy and ask him to make an unbiased conclusion. He will only give one answer and we all know what that would be.

Now im not saying that Rossi is a bad rider by any means.

Im just sick and tired of all these excuses he's giving with the constant 'moaning'.

'Moaning' can be somewhat forgiven provided the results are there with podiums and wins to back it up.

'Moaning' when finishing mid pack is not good.

You have to laugh at people like Realist and Codger.

What do the points after 5 rounds show? That that rider had more points than the other rider after 5 races. Thats it. Roiders are not judged after 5 rounds. They are judged after full seasons.

What you have done is cherry picked your own stats to try and prove something meaningless. Ooooopss.

its almost as bad as the other old chestnut, 'Rossi is better than Stoner because he won 5 titles (or 7 as some would prefer to say - see my point lol) before Stoner arrived in Moto gp. More cherry picked info. Ooopppps.
