Like Rossi cracked under pressure in 2006 SwissJudge?


Or when Rossi cracked under pressure at laguna this year? Oh wait, there was no pressure, he was just tired and decided to sit a bit..


As for Doohan, Rossi fans slagging off former world champions, now isn't that a familiar sight...

"Jeez, some ignorance ... so if your bike is miles better, you will actually WAIT for other riders to catch up to have a SCRAP ?"

I think they meant that Stoner cries foul everytime he gets into a SCRAP. Laguna Seca 2008 case in point. Also, he always chokes everytime he gets overtaken and his rhythm disturbed. Case in point? Watch all races that he did not win.

@ Replica, That's exactly what I meant!! Casey avoids a scrap like nobody else ever as he can't cope!! Casey has to have a clear track in front of him, a bit of aggro and he cracks up and blames all sorts of things other than the fact that he can't scrap - end of!!

Speaking of choking Swiss. The series was choked to an extent when Mick got physically choked out of it.
That opened doors for many a young turk.
Stoner's retirement announcement this year also choked the series to an extent,but it again opened doors for young turks which is a good thing.
Anyway,I always enjoy Doohan. Always have. Look forward to the parade lap.Prolly Bayliss,Gardner to join him. Bayliss on a Ducati of some or other persuasion no doubt,watched with a wry smile from CS#27 in pit lane on a Honda.

This misimformation going around about Stoner can't scrap,can't overtake etc.it's fairly ludicrous an laughable at the same time.It semms that when you live in britain,you can get sucked into anything once you hear it often enough.That's how they got sucked into the afghan an iraq war by America.I think you are lacking something called decency an respect.Incidentally,Casey won all 37 gp's without passing anyone.I find it quite amazing when a British rider places 5th an people celebrate,but Stoner win by 5 seconds an all he gets,oh the race was boring an blah blah blah.Dare i go on an on,i'm starting to sound as stupid as u lot.

Fer crying out loud, wotta bunch of jerks posty here! KC can ride, KC can scrap and, in true Oz fashion, just tames whatever ride he's got in exhibitions of machine control that take my breath away. I haven't raced anything since a Norton Manxman in production long, long ago, but I survived two years and quarter of a million miles as a UK long-distance courier (Suzi 1000GT) so Iknow a bit about staying rubber-sdie down but quick. But KC as a person - wottawanka! Doohan was very Oz in the same way, but dour is not moody, sharp is not hissy-fit, blunt is not adolescent-rude. WootaMan! And sod the whole GOAT debate - it's impossible.
