Is English a second language for most of you guys? He did not blame the marshalls for his crash. He blamed himself. He makes the point that none of the marshalls tried to assist to recover the bike and let him finish. That is a legitimate and truthfull summation of what occured if you watch. He could have gone for the 20 points and you would all say the race was boring and he had lost his passion. If he believes he had a speed advantage over Danny then who the hell are you guys to say otherwise? It may or may not have been the case but he felt he did and since he has far more knowledge of the facts than any of you, I think I will believe him.

its amazing how many fans hate stoner. the main problem was that he was the first one to really beat up rossi (hayden's championship dimissed as a bad run of luck for rossi and a super fast metronomical honda)and was hated then but it could be just put down to a roaring ducati.. but now that we know the ducati only really goes in a straight line he is now hated for breaking the rossi legend.

i think the second problem was that stoner is the type of guy who just hates them back... to be fair i would too.. i would hate people cheering when i crashed out.

Stoner never said the Marshals prevented him from winning. He admitted he pushed too hard. By decent result he meant finishing the race. Posters here are too dumb. But you can't blame them. They have been waiting for more than a year to see stoner crash

Before anyone starts bashing the marshals it is worth noting that standard international instructions for marshals is if you are in any doubt that you can get the machine back & running safely without putting yourself in danger by being near other machines at race pace you must recover the machine to safety and not attempt to aid the machine in rejoining the race.

It's simple. Is there any rider who crashed rejoin any race today? If the answer is YES, you could blame the Marshals for not letting Stoner rejoin the race to get at least minimal point.
