Haven't commented for a while as I was getting sick of people making comments of things they do not really understand.
Rossi was a great rider. The sport has become entertainment for those who want to comment on forums like this. It is dying because of its has no manufacturers interested in it anymore and you fans want to worry about the soap opera of Rossi and Stoner.
Thankyou for giving us a world where stupid people work harder for less money and the 1% get richer.
I think it is time to protest outside of Dorna, Yamaha and Honda so we can get this duopoly broken and claim our sport back.

I think I would look as unhappy as Nicky if I had just been accused of having no pride after working my ass off for 4 years!
Stoner in his bitterness towards Rossi does not seem to care who he includes in his blanket bombing of put downs.
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!

Crash.net. For all things anti Casey Stoner and all things Australian. By most posters to this site for years now Mick Doohan ruined racing because he won booringly. Casey ruined racing because he won booringly.
D..k Heads.

if you can't beat the haters,join them.
What makes Casey think he can give advice to the GOAT,a NINE times world champion,telling him to change his style an forget his pride.He is a very rude obnoxious little git,who has only won 2 world championships,an 42 races by pure luck.How dare he carry on like that against the GREATEST in the world.He won in 07 because of his superor tyres,an in 11 because Danny give him a good bike to ride.
THIS POST WAS WRITTEN TONGUE IN CHEEK.

I for one will not particularly miss Casey. He's mighty fast, but is one mighty whinger. Think what you may of Rossi, but Stoner has a lot of gall to significantly criticise a 9x World Champion. You're about 7 short of being able to be compared

Why do people class his last few years at Ducati as failures? Still got few wins and podiums against a strong field, I'd be pretty happy with keeping up with the safety car!

It really is sad how some people treat Casey on this site name CRASHDICKS.NUT.I wake up at 6am every sunday race days to watch how Stoner rode that DUCATI an wrestle it to victory.Beautiful long drifts an slides,an backing it in to corners at ASSEN an Sepang.Casey is a very hard worker an he deserves what sucess came his way.I like his aussie personality an no bulls#$t stance.An this is saying a lot about a anglo saxon,cause i am half black.I for one will miss him next year.
My final post this will be

,to be young an fast an free
,to be an aussie world champion is heresy
so off to the farm an fishing i go
i will leave you to your immortal god,Valentino Rossi.
