So you say Rossi failed in 2010 and Stoner failed in 2012. Well you are right in that they failed to win the title. Like the other 15-20 or so riders didtoo in that case.

So the 'GOAT' has 'failed' 3 years running now. He's also 'failed' to even win a race in 2 years.

So Vilas, who has 'failed' the most in recent years? Stoner or Rossi? Which two riders were the biggest dissappointments of 2012?

I would just like to hear you say it my friend because it will be like music to my hears to finally hear you openly admit it.

this are diferente situacions m8.. Your a funny guy you know, you whant to put people saying just what you whant to hear and you dont even considerer the time between this guys.. You will never cach me saying that Rossi is a failure only because he did the wrong choice for the next Team thats why he dont do better then what he did!! A Failure for me m8 was Casey that is younger that finaly have what he whanted and just fail on the second year on the Honda, he is not better then Lorenzo, for me the most dangerus rider right there since he join Motogp im 2008.. And Casey allready quit Motogp at this age!! Thats a Total failure the guy dont even have balls to feel the weight that Rossi is feeling right now at this stage of Time maybe Casey would not survive until the age of Rossi thats why he quit.. I respect Casey like many other aussies he is fast and have style riding one bike but is not the package i admire on one rider!! If he had more sucesse then Rossi on racent years? yes he had m

yes he had more poles more fastest laps but the funny part is that he dont even manage to do more World Champoins then Rossi since 2006 with Casey on is BEST like Lorenzo is right now we have to question so many fastest laps and poles for What??lolo.. Casey manage 2 World Champions the same has Rossi put the thinghs this way and i really say Casey was a failure for the mouth he have.. One rider at is best vs One King that is getting older is the VS that people whant to do, very good.. Why you dont go to 2001 and compared what Rossi was able to do on one Honda Vs what Casey did?? YOu guys dont like to compared thinks this way because you will have to say YEAH your right Rossi at is best just BEAT evrybody without any question he was the KING..lolo Is better to compared Rossi vs Stoner after 2006 and only to say that Stoner did more fastest laps and poles and Podiums but saddly dont manage more then 2 world Champions just like the Old Rossi mmmmm...

just because Casey won on it in 2011,RCV 12 is the best bike?.
where did u draw such conclusion from?.
RCV 11 is 800cc IS not the same as RCV 12 that is 1000cc in its inaugural season.HRC just happens to have 2 best riders of motogp.I'm convinced to tell so.Dani is also a very skillfull rider but there is something in him that's not enough to make it for his own WDC title.maybe the ride itself.Casey ?well.. he's an enigma!

LOL @ Vilas, i have to give you full credit for continuing to fight a lost cause.

Yes we all know Rossi beat the likes of Gibernau, Barros and Biaggi week in week out, but how many real top class riders was Rossi beating back then?

Who do you think is the best competition even at the top of theor game.....

1.) Biaggi, Gibernau, Barros, Capirossi, Hayden
2.) Lorenzo, Pedrosa, Rossi

These were the riders that each were up against. Do you see the difference?

No one was able to beat Stoner for titles, and no one could beat him on wins either, or anything else for that matter.

Yes we all know Rossi was on top before Stoner came, but since then, the fact is that no one, not even Rossi, could better Stoners acheivements.

Rossi WAS the best.
Then Casey came along to take his crown and beat him in every which way, despite being on inferior equipment for more years.

Thats life. Things progress and the competition gets tougher, as Rossi has clearly found out.

But Vilas will NEVER su

But Vilas will NEVER surrender to this fact!!! LOL!!!

Vilas, I honestly respect your loyalty and persistence in trying to defend your hero, and thats fine, but i think most have seen the light now and given up because they can see the obvious.

I think LCTanner has given up, Reality seems to have surrendered now, Dray is long gone, Dave still chips in here and there (with lame attempts saying that Rossi's back to back titles somehow cancels Stoners achievements out, meaning he has acheived more LOL!).......but Vilas continues like a true Yellow Warrior!!! That, i do actually have respect for so 10/10 for effort my friend. :-)

i also apreciate what you say, i found funny people say Biaggi, Gibernau ETC like if they where not top riders.. its funny if you wach the races most of the times was allways close races and Rossi won most of then fighting hard with this guys, also with Melandri riding the RCV and you have to put Pedrosa also even if now is a more consistente rider allready on the past he was fast.. Rossi after 2006 Loss the title to hayden that was a miracle for the American but Ey heydan Won fair enaught and Loss to Stoner im 2007 and thats it, Then was 2008 and 2009.. More 2 World Champions the same has the super Casey, if you tell me that Ducati was a problem for him to be World Champion is very true thats why he go to Honda and Won but loss on the second year..lolol for me this chat is over is a waste of time and after all Casey allready gone.. If you like so much Casey GG m8 is a great rider is fast 4sure he can also be nice lad when he whant but for me and many he dont even get close of a

If you like so much Casey GG m8 is a great rider is fast 4sure he can also be nice lad when he whant but for me and many he dont even get close of acheive what Rossi did and he will never get close he allready give up the fight.. Hope you keep the good memories about him!! You will have now im Marquez one new rider that 4sure will conquer the hearts of many people because the kid really is a machine...

Ps: If the RCV Honda of 2012 was not the best and fastest bike im Motogp, like we say the best package then im really a blind guy.. Lorenzo was playing like a Dog to win the title just serching for the best bone that end up beeing the 2 plac many times tkx to casey mistake and tkx to the lack of Competicion has we know Ducati was on other planet the slow planet and the Semi oficial Teams only beat the factorys when you have Spies or when the Lorenzo crash

@bikenut - I thought that
'amassing the most points
possible by the end of the
season' was the idea, although
it's clearly not that simple.
Was it boring?..Perhaps we
should ask Jorge?
Posted by wosi..
yess,Wosi,definetely will.
U could also ask how jubilant Nicky felt once he saw Rossi fall at the last round at Valencia 2006 that he might be thinking how amateur this Rossi was for taking it hot too early instead of being composed for securing required points to outscore himself(NH)to clinch his,Rossi's,next title....Bloody more on!
