@stavros,

good attempt at humor but you may want to think about it a little more...best v greatest??? whats the difference?

Stoner fans have almost conceded the "greatest" tag and are now trying to use different words to say the same thing. How funny:)

As for people remembering, how many rossi v stoner debates on this site overlooked names like hailwood etc? Human nature will determine that after a generation or so has passed, people will only know those who are currently racing in their time and those with the numbers in the stat books.

Like you said, Rossi will be remembered as the greatest while stoner will be brought up once in a while by someone who watched him race.

"I'm still shattered we won't get to see the most talented rider of this generation, maybe of any generation, ride in the top class anymore, but I feel priveliged to have witnessed him ride as long as he did."

It just goes to show how little it matters, in the overall scheme of things. On the other hand Stoner might retire from MotoGP. But who's to say that he won't still race 300cc bikes in Australia? If it really is all about rider skill..

@rahmad .
grow a couple mate.
how do you lose respect for someone because they make a correct assessment of a racing situation?
is it any different from you making a rash assessment of his racing judgement?
get back in the kitchen.

Well I will remember Rossi for being a great champion that impressed us with great racing and beguiled us with his personality. I will also rememeber all the clever things he had to say about Stoner before he went to Ducati and how he hasn't beeen able to back a single one of them up. Not one.

I'll remember Stoner as a great champion but a prickly guy who didn't enjoy the circus as much as Vale.

But long after I forget everything else I'll remember Stoner pushing the front all the way through the Hayshed then drifting the rear all the way to Lukey heights. Didn't matter what he was riding, just shear blinding talent. Everything else is chatter.

So, world titles obviously don't count any more!! What's the point in winning races now if winnig a championship is meaningless when it comes to deciding who is a great rider?? It makes me laugh when I read that Casey Stoner is the best, is the GOAT, is this, is that and probably the other!! Casey Stoner is a seriously fast rider, but he isn't the best or he would have won the last 6 world titles - he hasn't so let's think about what really matters and stop talking such twaddle!!

Sad to see him go. Sadder to see how he has been treated by some idiots on this site. Good to know he left healthy and wealthy.

WylieCoyote ........

People bring it on themselves i'm afraid by feuding over the riding greats!

I wish Rossi the very best over the next two seasons and lets not forget that he has had 10 times as much slating on here than casey has, just as undeservedly!

Good luck to CS and especially good luck to all the gp riders in 2013.

@rahmad
I think it gave him flashbacks to Laguna and made him feel angry all over again.
Casey has seen the direction MotoGP is taking and therefore leaving.
Spec ECU's etc, where is he going to keep his advantage/illusion now, it is better to run than be found out.
