@ted

I will leave that up to you!! I like to watch passionate riders who are animated and look like they are fun to be around. I also like to give credit where credit is due hence my original comment. These are my own personal opinions and I know that some people will agree and some won't - that's life!

At least Stoner made the effort to race yesterday,knackered ankle and all.Unlike some who were race fit but couldnt be bothered to make any effort at all.Hats off to Stoner.He could so easily have given the race a miss,but he is being paid to race.And that is what he is doing.He will be missed next season when Lorenzo runs away with the championship.

@ted I'm sure no-one begrudges Alison46 her opinion, or enjoyment of anything. Vitriolic garbage of the kind regularly directed at Stoner (or anyone) by people who know very little warrant "adjustment" for reality though People are free to like who they like.

EDIT by CRASH.NET! No need for baiting remark.

Casey has been overriding the machine to make up for the tire/chassis problems all season, this was bound to happen. It's a shame that Dorna & Bridgestone have ruined what could have been a very close and exciting season. Very disappointing.

I think people are reading too much into his crash.It wasnt as if he was the only one who had a spill.They were going down like skittles all weekend.It just happens that Stoner was unlicky enough to brake his ankle.It happens to the best of them.
