Vale must be soooo proud to have fans like some of you. The same could be said for some Casey fans, but at least they appear to be using their brain with correct comparisons and most important variables being constant when comparing A and B.

The comparison is between two different riders, albeit both great riders, and im assuming you are arguing about who is 'better'. Trying to determine who is 'better' is very difficult, but you can only compare thise two riders when the most possible variables are constant. The most unbiased way of doing so is to use a given time frame when they are both on the track together. Hence, why the more intelligent ones are using 2006-2012.

People may or may not like the these figures, but we cannot argue with them because they are there for all to see.

Vale WAS the best, then it WAS Casey. And now to throw a spanner in the works, its Lorenzo that is top of the pile.

We all know the answer to who has had the best career on the whole. Rossi without a doubt.

Why cant you admit that Stoner has been better than Rossi over the last 7 years?

Yes head to head titles is of course a fair comparison, of which, they both have 2, correct.

So what is the next measure of success after titles?

Is it wins? Is it podiums? Is it poles? Is it Fastest laps? Is it average points per season?

Go on then, take your pick.

Ooooh, Oooooh.... Sir, I know the answer to who is/was the bestest... It's who won their last race the most recentist!!!!!

Stoner has answered his question with Phillip Isle 2012.

Rossi has ANOTHER two seasons to get his trump card in. Rossi COULD get the question and steal the final point in the "universally re-challenged scrap heap scrap" Or, he could have two seasons like Ben and ride his steed whilst sat on the fairing down the Laguna corkscrew after a swingarm failure due to pushing his bike beyond limits he can control trying to keep up with Jorge.... Fate, luck and racing eh?

LOL!!!!

It's not that much of a difficult question is it? Maybe it is huh? LOL!

Ill try to put it in a way you may be able to understand this time. Difficult for you to understand i know, but here goes.

As said, yes they both have 2 titles. These 4 titles aside, what is the next measure of success? If the championship is already decided, what do the riders then aim for?

We all know its wins, then podiums, then poles andor fastest laps.

There are lots of measures of success after titles in that same timeframe. But those are the ones that riders thrive on and ultimatly aim for.

To you understand now? LOL!

And Stoner has beaten Rossi in every single catagory.

When will you finally admit that Stoner has done better than Rossi when racing togther.

Heres hoping. But the sooner you accept it, the better.

Use logic and you can't go wrong buddy.

JK, you never learn huh. I guess its a heavy burdain to see 27 bail out and not be the best rider as you would want it to be.

Tough break kid. But Stoner aint the best ever. Not statisticly, nor thought so by the public. So there we are, only the Stonerfans left. By the way, which sport are you gonna watch now that only the bad is left in MotoGP?

Good pick 6 Crash. All of them memorable. In terms Casey showing the rest the finger,it must be Mugello 2009 in spite of etc. In terms of absorbed and well handled pressure it must be PI 2009.
My vote goes to his performance at Catalunya 2007.
Factory backed rookie at Ducati alongside Loris must have required some resilience and more at the ripe old age of 21.

Lol@boner.
He only wants to compare stats 2006-10!
Why not mention 2011-12 boner?
Oh yeah,thats right,Rossi was wobbling around mid pack on the Ducati for those 2 years wasnt he?
You know,the bike Stoner put on the podium time and time and time again!
