Can anyone explain why so much damage to his ankle. $hit I pay $300-$600 for these boots the riders wear. They are stiff as, have little movement to stop the ankle bending backwards (adjustable),and the support is awesome. If I was Stoner I would blame the boots, just to be consistant with all the other stuff he moanes about. Marshall's, slow riders in qualifying, tyres, 4kg, milk and chatter. And his fans can't see why he is so unpopular. Geez.
Have to go now to look up what Stoner had to say about Lorenzo when he was getting around on crutches with 2, yes 2, broken ankles. Stay tuned. lol.

@Never say never Don't worry mate, at the speeds you ride at on your Playstation, your $500 boots offer great protection. When you can ride like Stoner can with a broken ankle, well... never going to happen is it?

One of Caseys' better rides, even though the points would not reflect his determination.
True racing spirit, unlike some, who were just smelling the roses.

Here we go again. The statements attributed to Casey last week were a beat up They were comments made over an 18 months period that were taken out of context, edited and stuck together to make it look like he said all that in an interview after the announcement. But the Stoner bashers just ignore the facts and keep sprouting the rubbish. Stoner is not disliked by the other riders. He does not show them disrespect. Respect is earned. Rossi has not earned any respect when it comes to his time at Ducati. So even though Stoner did not say the exact words reported last week, he agreed with their tone and conclusion as would any reasonable person who has watched the Rossi/Ducati farce. Please show me any comment by Stoner where he shows disrespect to another rider.

@creek Crack will fry your brain my boy!

Rossi bagged Stoner for years...snipe here, snipe there...endlessly. He did the same with Lorenzo and Pedrosa. It worked with Biaggi and Gibenau.

His fans called it "mind games". He said Stoner wasn't putting in on the Ducati, and that he and his crew could fix it in no time. Then HE got on it and showed us how good HE really is. All he's done since is complain until he quit Ducati. Then he acts humble. It won't last - it's just another "game".

Stoner shows him enough respect, he simply gives his opinion, based on INFORMED observation. He doesn't need to suck up to Rossi or fools like you. Your comments are based on ignorance and probably substances that will only do you harm.
