@anti27?
LOOK AT THE STATS OF STONER V ROSSI SINCE BOTH HAVE BEEN ON WORKS BIKES. Casey close to 50% more wins.
Rossi is a great MotoGP rider but he's not the best now let alone of all time. He is the most loved and I tip my hat to his longetivity but he did have it very easy in his early 990cc years.

@Clackarelli

how can you say he had it easy in his 990cc years????

if you say that you can say Casey has had it easy in his career only having to deal with 5 other factory bikes and the rest made up of salelite and crt scooters who have no hope of even challenging for wins.

no rider has had it easy, you try ride around at 200mph with your knee and elbo dragging on the ground and trying to fight with another rider right next to you touching fareing and trying to just survive the race.

To me these ongoing debates seems really futile. Casey Stoner the most talented rider? Perhaps. But he is by no means the greatest. Let's not beat around the bush here, Rossi's track records is so much better as Stoner's it's not even funny. But that doesn't mean Stoner might be better at this point in time. Next season wil be telling if Rossi's time trully has come to pass (I think he will be quit competitive).

I just compare this to snooker. Somehow the greatest players always get the most smack. Ronny O'Sullivan the most talented ever? Perhaps, but not the greatest. That would be mister Stephen Hendry...

Haters gonna hate.

At the end of the day, the fans of the sport KNOW what a humungous talent Casey truly is. And the respect shown between these two over the last two years, Dani too, has made podiums a pleasure to see. True fans will also acknowledge that Rossi is also massively talented.

But, hearing a comment like this from Jorge puts things in perspective.

Casey will be missed. Like it or not. If YOU won't miss seeing his supreme bike skills, you're watching the wrong channel.

It's good that the riders have mutual respect for each other, may it be a solid basic for a lifelong friendship, and btw i wouldn't want to argue about whether Jorge was sincere or not.
Regarding Jorge's comments about Stoner, i do agree..and it sure is going to be a long time until we'll see another rider of Stoner's calibre. Other than that, this Stoner v Rossi tit for tat has been going on ad nauseam, and it surely is not healthy.
Cheers. :)
