True, what a load of tripe!!! Funny how Casey won his first championship on a Ducati that was leaps and bounds faster than anything else that year. Then what, nowt at all until he rides the Honda, again one of the fastest bikes there that year!! Casey also struggled with the new Bridgestone tyres that didn't quite suit his Honda, and still don't and guess what - he doesn't stand a chance of winning another championship!!! It seems it is Casey that needs the best bike, tyres etc. to give him the best chance of winning a championship!!

"You can't wait next year? Well you should, you will be a busy man, spewing garbage about Lorenzo, Dani, Marquez, Iannone, etc etc..."

@I Remember

No. Only Stoner deserves to be treated like that. The guys you mentioned deserves our utmost respect and we are excited for them. Stoner on the other hand we are happy to see go. MotoGP will never be the same without him. It will be better.

Casey, don't leave motogp...

He does not care about you mate, so let him go. He never cared about his fans anyway. Just wait till he brings his quitting @r$e to V8's and the moaning will start again. A top 10 in V8's and he'll declare himself the GOAT of the sport and will start to disrespect Lowndes and Whincup. I hope he doesn't bad mouth the sport and especially the fans like he is doing with MotoGP or it will be a big bogan fist to the mouth.

The Rossi legend has to be preserved, no matter how much logic is shown to prove he he has been crushed by Casey, not gifted championships like Rossi has with superior tires, lackluster competition prior to Casey's arrival, not to mention uncle Carmelo's helpful hand.

Ok im a fan of both Stoner and Rossi, but what i really dont understand is the logic of some (and i say some) Rossi fans.

Are these guys really trying to say that Rossi has done better than Stoner over the last 7 seasons (the time they have both been racing side by side), just because he defended his title?

Is this the only reason you can think of to try and make yourself beleive that he has done a better job than Stoner?

Anyone with a half a brain knows that Stoner has done better during this period, so why is it so hard for these few blind Rossi fans to admit this too?

Everyone knows and clearly admits the fact that Rossi did really well before Stoner got to MotoGP, but why cant Rossi fans admit that Stoner has done better than Rossi since he arrived in 2006?

Show a total newbie to the Sport the stats and facts from this period and ask him whose achevied more. You'll only get one answer i can assure you!

@ Dave......." "Rossi thread....."Runner-up Rossi: That was for Super Sic" gets 112 posts in 3 days and this Casey thread gets 100 posts in 9 hrs and people say Rossi is the popular one.....hahahahaha

I dont care if he doesnt win I just want to see him ride for the last time as there is no one who can ride a bike like him and the good thing is a lot of ex World Champions think exactly the same thing."

2 points...

Now, that all the other stats dont seem to make stoner the best "GOAT", you somehow think that posts per hour do? rossi still kicks here, again, a stoner fan only looking at one thread out of how many?

A lot of these ex world champions also think rossi is a living legend. So, do these people not know what's going on or are you arguing for argument sake and again, only selecting opinions that suit your argument.

Hahahahaha are you for real, That post was for all the people that say Rossi was more popular because of the number o
