@Dissy......'Pride got Stoner a championship on a superior Ducati, pride got Stoner a doctors sick note, pride makes Stoner punch people whilst riding passed, pride makes Stoner run to a superior manufacturer, pride makes Stoner quit the series as he does not feel valued as a champion.... I could go on!'

Ill go on for you..............

Pride has made him the most successful rider of the modern era, since he arrived his pride has meant that no one has been able to match his success and acheievments. NO ONE! Yes thats right, not even Rossi.

Realist, yes thats right, VR has had a more successful career than Stoner. Most of which was acheived before the real competition came along. And more importantly, before Stoner came along.

As you well know, since Stoner came along, Rossi has been overshadowed by Stoner. And thats an undisputable FACT. Now of course Rossi fans will disagree with this for sure, which clearly shows their envy for Stoner and his acheivements. LOL!

what you say is pure perception and not in any record books. We are dealing with FACTS and only FACTS. If Stoner wants to make it FACT then continue, otherwise just accept the FACTS and move on.
Remember, opinions are like a$$holes, everybody has one, but written records are indisputable.

The Golden Rule of racing you are only as good as you last Race.
7 world titles meant absolutely ZERO at Ducati. This just proves my point you are only as good as your last race.

a lot of commenter's have gotten stoners words back to front here it seems.
what he is saying is you need to put your pride aside and ride the bike how it wants to be ridden.
not use your pride and ride.

"Must be sad to have such a biased view of the world Tetley. Rossi has no comeback to the truths of Stoner's comments. Casey is saying you adjust your style to suit the bike. Posted by WylieCoyote"
Read Casey's comments again and you will see that he is saying quite pointedly that VR is too proud to adopt his style to the Ducati. Then he claims VR's move displays NO pride by going back to the Yamaha camp. It is casey who has the biased view of the world with his Rossi fixation.
As I said before, Rossi is sensibly not rising to Casey's bait.
Beep, Beep !

@ Greggy
So we agree that Stoner rode with pride.

Which kinda make him a hyporite doesn't it?

After all pride comes before a fall and he sure fell off a lot, to the extent of falling off chasing Dani at Sachenring.

Casey won the title when the Ducati had clear advantage, and failed every time the field was more or less balanced, Much the same as everyone else who has ridden the bike.
Now he has too much to say as he wants to hog the limelight for as long as possible.
Stoners legacy is only being sullied by his continued belief that everyone hangs on his every word. Move on and be happy. But don't expect to be remembered as anything other than a talented racer. Legend you are not.

Tetley, perhaps you should go back and actually read the comment from Stoner verbatim, he doesn't refer to Rossi once, he just refers to riding the bike to suit the bike, nothing else! surely you aren't just plucking invisible flowers.
