We could all see how Lorenzo has grown up to be a mature sportsman, accepting Buatista's apology with class. Unfortunately, this is something we have not seen with stoner. If this happened to stoner, he'll be punching the rider and ranting to no end to all the world how ambition has outweighed the talent of the offending party without letting up and without knowing all the facts as if he is the only perfect rider in the face of the earth. He'll be ritiring without learning a single thing about our beautiful sport.

Yeah yeah Shamu we get it Jorge is a good guy Stoner is a bad guy..... hang on it did happen to Stoner and he didnt punch Valentino and to add insult to injury Valentino was able to remount and didnt incur a penalty, and guess what Stoner didnt even spit the dummy...
Not that there is anything wrong with blowing off a bit of steam after an incident of this nature, I didnt blame Jorge at all but how about opening both eyes before you pass judgement Shamu

Yeah, but Stoner had no-one to spit the dummy to.

All the marshalls bar one were busy getting Rossi's bike going again, then walking away.

I think when they blow off steam they need to think, that picture of Lorenzo with something in his hand looking like he is ready to throw it, doesn't set the kind of example Yamaha wants to convey. And Stoner standing off to the side giving the up yours to Rossi as he went by isn't exactly what Honda likes either.
Like it or not they do get paid a healthy chunk of money and part of that is to be a good ambassador for their perspective sponsors, brands and thirdly the sport.
Granted it is hard to compose ones self right after you have been taken out, but Lorenzo wants badly to be a public figure with a following. Stoner on the other hand doesn't seem to give a rat's ass what people think.
But all good sportsman should accept a public apology graciously, and then in private tell the other what they really think or just bite the bullet. They like anyone, have to remember most bone head moves weren't done on purpose. Racers don't like falling.

@bikenut

He did punch de puniet without any reason for hostility at all. Or your eyes are completely closed so that you could imagine stoner in an angel suit.

Shamu, he did that because as you have pointed out he is a bad person :) although I have heard him be quite complimentry about De puniet so I think they have a respectful relationship.

@tedG.
i never seen stoner on the side of the track giving him the up yours?
i did see him clapping him and cheering him.
and even in the pits he was smiling and laughing and patting vales shoulder while delivering his now famous line,
does it matter anyway how a rider reacts to these situations? , or are fans of today choosier than old ladies with poison in mind.
jlo freaked out , and he had every reason to.
how riders react or talk is no biggy with me , i refuse to judge a rider outside his riding.
