I will repeat again.How can you compare 2 sportsmen during a time period where they never competed against one another?
Its like comparing Rocky Marciano and Mike Tyson.Marciano had the better record but how would he have faired against Tyson?
The only way to compare Stoner with Rossi is to look at how they have performed since they have been in direct competition with each other,ie,2006.And the fact is Stoner has beaten Rossi more times than Rossi has beaten Stoner.You can juggle and twist the stats as much as you like,the result is the same.And lets not forget,more than half of those wins were for Ducati.Even more impressive!

@ The truth hurts...I have to agree with what you say, bear in mind though that you don't have to keep using Casey's name to make your point. You could use Jorge's performance since he's been there too. You could even compare Stoner with Lorenzo since they've been competing against each other (don't forget to include the lower classes results)

If anyone does have the inclination to give us the list of stats it might make interesting reading.

@ there there youngsters, sigh. You keep agreeing with posts against Rossi while I big up Jorge for you (see my previous post).

Don't mention it. My pleasure.

btw..your pre-race prediction didn't quite come off...Rossi 4th?...:)

@ The truth hurts...chestnut? It's more like a coconut. Get's tiresome sometimes. (not you, I like a bit of banter)

Ooh er! I've got deja vu all over again.
