If you're going to call yourself the GOAT you must be ready for some harsh criticism when things don't go your way.

Your fans should know well too.

"@ Realist. Sure it ends. Around about Club 30+. Ask Loris Capirossi. One offs and exceptions granted.
Loris was winning races on the D16 though on a shoestring budget while the project was in its infancy. There is no way Rossi can catch up to Capirex' exploits within Ducati rank and file and I'm pleased. The quitter that is Rossi may win all five of the remaining rounds and he will go down as the 3rd best Ducati GP rider they ever had. Highly unlikely though. Bayliss won one."

Mate, the quitter that is stoner may win all the races when he returns and he still will only go down as the 3rd best GP rider in terms of wins only and around 7-8th in terms of championships.

Highly unlikely that stoner will ever be compared to rossi by anyone other than his fans, which by the posts on this site, says very little for stoner.

Into context, if stoner fans bag Hayden for winning a title with only 3 wins, what underachievement is stated by 2 championships with

...with 37 wins? (34 more wins for only 1 more WC).

Stoner will only be great within Ducati ranks and even then, they will still remember the moaning and the early season defection (quitting).

"It's all been a bit Boring
with-out watching Stoner
Thrashing that Honda!"

Why does he thrash the bike? Its not working for him and Pedro can beat him on the same bike without thrashing it! Maybe it doesnt need to be thrashed?

And stoner fans criticize rossi for not being able to adapt!

Dave, I don't think it's appropriate to continue your hatred towards Stoner on a Rossi thread, there is not one single point about Rossi making excuses for being 4 seconds slower than his injured team mate on a bike that was supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread in the wet in your attack. Give it a break and resign from the haters club before you do your head in mate.

No hate mate, simply outlining a logical argument which disagrees with statements on the same line.

I assume then that you will be posting similar advise to the others soon?
