Not Sure why Casey is being mentioned on this post by haters

Yet just let it Go Stoner has retired A very strong and decisive move ............

Not everyone who dislikes Rossi for his personal attacks on other riders was a Stoner Fan Personally I find all this personal attack on a rider offensive doesn't matter who the rider is they all deserve respect for there skills and contribution ....

As for there personalities I am here to watch racing not to see how they hold there mouth ......

I hope I am wrong but I really find it hard to see Rossi getting back to his golden days. It is illogical for me. Yes, I do understand that at his age he should/could be at his peak (why not? Doohan, for instacne, was at his peak at 33). No, his age is not the problem. But what I see is:
1 - Rossi from 2001 to 2005 - amazing run of titles (whose change to Yamaha helped himself remain motivated)
2 - Getting tired and bruised from 2006 (his injury at Assen prevented him to give the usual washout of wins in the second part of the season)
3 - Stoners's surprising domination and talent urged Rossi to ride with his pride as main motor. But he lacked the confidence from the past and was never as fast. His titles of 2008 and 2009 were very tiring and difficult. His motivation and speed were fatally hindered by his loss of confidence.
4 - Elbow injury and broken leg only accelerated his problems.
5 - Worse still in the Ducati - he didn't have the faith in himself and a difficult bike only helpe - Unregistered

5 - Worse still in the Ducati - he didn't have the faith in himself and a difficult bike only helped him doubting more.
6 - Yes, he is back at Yamaha but he has a huge mountain to climb back to try and regain some his form and confidence from his youth. I think it is too steep a climb.

Once again, I hope I am totally wrong because a return to form of 2004 and 2005 would be the stuff of dreams!

It doesn't matter what size the mountain is if you can fly! :)

What would happen to Dani, Jorge & Casey if they had to face a younger Vale. Think for once. In 2007 Vale was older than Casey is now! Still he managed to 2 titles. People on here stating Vale cant ride & he is a noob are delusional. Comparing him to Cal, Marc, Andrea etc is outright insulting, to say the least.

So Rossi is older than some of the other riders cant do it anymore are you sure?

What about
Max the Troys Mick and Carlos then they were all old men and look at their final years before retirement.
