@ separated ..... Good point about Casey haters.
I copied and pasted that after reading posts by gorbachov and mdzane. And now gutbucket.

@ True Fan....Not really rubbish. Audi couldn't listen to Casey, he doesn't ride a Ducati anymore.
It is common knowledge that the wholesale changes have not always been the ones asked for, were slow in coming, and some that were asked for haven't been forthcoming.
You are right about Casey but unfortunately he kept winning, so it is possible that the Ducati engineers thought the bike didn't need to be changed. After all he came from nowhere and trounced the field in 2007.
If Rossi's input was next to worthless, why on earth would Prez, Ducati, and Audi want to keep him.
It is difficult to deny the failures but is it really Rossi's fault?

Rossi and Burgess won on 500 2 stroke hondas,V5 honda,1000 and 800 yamahas and couldn't get anywhere on the ducati,nor could anyone else except stoner,and he started winning less and crashing more when the engine limits came in so he had to push harder through the corners and not rely on his speed advantage.There is a problem at ducati,maybe the weight distribution of the V4?Something needs to be done,hope it works for the future of MotoGP

Shame to see Previosi go but this is not about nostalgia it is about business and VW is hell bent on global domination. Just ask Suzuki! As far as Suter is concerned I just don't know. They seem to have a decent enough Moto2 chassis so they are capable but Colin Edwards would probably tell you otherwise. It is change and change was necessary so I look forward to it.

@Jon

The Ducati management that tried to keep Rossi were trying to prove that their original decision was correct. It wasn't. He was a massive waste of money.

Fair enough the first time, based on his record, he should be the best...but given that they treated Stoner so badly, they got what they deserved. Rossi tried in vain. He couldn't understand how Stoner was so fast before he went to Ducati, and still can't understand how Stoner was so fast. He can't ride the bike anywhere near like Stoner could. He said so himself. Why pay 15 million Euros for second best?
They need to fix the bike. They don't need Rossi. Anyway, he's become something of a quitter.

@ it's Sam

Mate you need help. You are doing it again. Ask Crash to pay you for hit loyalties. Or get a life. Or ride a motorcycle! Won't answer again as you are one of those creepy internet knob ends.

P.s. well done Chad Davies. Ryder is a fat nobody
