."Vale doesnt moan like other riders...he just says fix this(coz he gives precise feedback) and i'll do the rest.."

So, according to your best reply to how the wheel was invented in 1996 with the invention of the 125cc champion elect(Rossi), it's GOT TO BE Ducati to blame for not listening to the Dr(proctology) as his feedback made the Ducati a true winner.
Maybe Ducati DID listen to him and MAYBE, just maybe the ring rust has set in and he can't run with the boyz.

Here is Rossi getting on with it...13/04/2009 2nd to Stoner. Today the conditions of the track were quite different to before and we encountered a couple of small problems related to tyres. 26/04/2009 2nd to Jorge. There was part of the race that I wasn't quite able to ride like I wanted, there was some kind of problem. 31/05/2009 3rd to Casey and Jorge. We made a mistake and chose a tyre that was too hard, so it took me a long time to be able to put enough temperature on it and I lost a lot of time. 05/07/2009 2nd to Dani. Second is good today because we were not in perfect shape here, we missed something in the setting. 04/10/2009 4th to Jorge, Dani and Stoner. I was never able to be fast because I did not have enough grip in the rear and our tyre did not work well. 02/05/2010 3rd to Dani & Jorge. We have struggled all weekend, first with my shoulder and then with the bike..I tried to go with Dani but then I started to slide a lot.

I could quote many more instances where Rossi says exactly the same things as Stoner did but was never labeled a "moaner". Rossi was never any better at dealing with bike setup problems than anybody else.

Ah.. but Wylie, its the manner in which you deal with those problems. Just go and check out the post-race interviews and compare both riders demeanour when stuff has gone bad. There is a world of difference. It's not just about what you say, but how you say it. The same story when either of them had a good result!. Caseys 'Moaner' tag didn't just spring out of nowhere. Anyway, Mr Honda seems to think differently to you judging by his comments elsewhere on here...I suspect he has had a pretty good insight into both riders.

So let me get this straight......

Rossi dominates MotoGP wheStoner was not present.

Then, the moment Stoner arrives. Rossi fails to acheive what Stoner has.

Yes some of you are still claiming that Rossi is better than Stoner??????

You guys are amazing hahahahaha!!!!!!

If Rossi beat Stoner too, then yes he would be better than him.

But, if you cant beat someone, then you are clearly not better than that person.

The end, finsihed, finito.

Er.. Remi, in the years they've raced together they've won 2 Championships each. That sounds pretty equal to me. Then you've just gotta look at what Rossi achieved before Stoner and what he has yet to achieve...

Yes, Rossi never moans... instead of saying "we made made a wrong tire choice" like Stoner, he says " (goofy smile) yesa, i wasn't fast today becausa we had a probrem with a tira, (childish chuckle) after the third lap the rear of the bike slided too mucha, so third is okay (thumbs up and goofy face to the camera).


As you can see, it's a sea of difference..

Exactly! Goofy smiles and thumbs up and chuckles don't really sound like someone bitching at the world do they? That enthusiasm, even when the ceiling is caving in, is what makes the difference. Beat yourself up or smile and get on with it. A ocean of difference.
