MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner 'started to hate me' after Laguna 2008

“Stoner started to hate me just because he lost. After that, he always seemed to talk about the past, this race [Laguna], because he wasn't man enough to understand that at that time, he lost!” – Valentino Rossi.

RG500 - what are you talking about? Rossi knocked Stoner? in fastest movie rossi say's he never touch casey EVER. and in laguna 08 stoner run wide and put his ducati on gravel. watch it before you comment. that corner is a blind side even rossi i think he never planned to run in a gravel and take risk just to win.

Rossi vs Stoner war will end this year cause we never gonna see the whiner again.

well said Mr. Rossi.

and in Jerez 11 rossi never touched stoner cause before rossi crash he's already ahead of stoner. that is racing incident.

the bottom line is rossi thought he could duplicate stoners success with ducati but was just another hayden/barbera/anyone else on it. stoner didn't win the ship in 08-09 due to incoming riders(lorenzo, dovi, pedrosa getting better) it wasn't until 2010 when the bike turned downhill, but still it was obviously a bike capable of winning races. to go to ducati and have the success he did, a few fluke podiums, 0 front row starts, is just a real eye opener to stoners talent, not rossis. he was just like everyone else but stoner on a ducati.

Must you crash? Like there aren't enough(all) comment threads that bring up this topic of Rossi and stoner now there will be 290 comments of meaningless crap of who was better/right/wrong. I know it's the off season but come on. You could have an article about a moto3 rider and it will some how come to these two riders. I'd rather you report will they won't they Suzuki/aprillia/BMW rumours. They are both good the had a great rivalry one has retired move on.

Come on Stoner fans, defend your wimp!!

Even Gibernau has goten over the fact that Rossi cut past him in Jerez in the last corner and bumped him of the track. This is racing.

Yes, I'm a Rossi fan. Always was, always will be? Why? Because he (used to / will again) win? Hell no, it's a nice bonus sure. But he is indeed the only one to truly enjoy himself on a bike. He is outrages, he is silly, he is never backing down (which is why he fell a lot with the Duc, sure, who cares).

Like he said, enjoy it!

Smacks of sour grapes to me.
Stoner consistently won on the Ducati ... more wins in the 800cc era than anyone.
Rossi jumped on the Ducati and did NOTHING.
Gawd, I hope Marquez punts this lemon into the weeds and let's see how Rossi wimpers then.

Rossi had a huge advantage on his Yamaha on that weekend??? Did you see the practice times and the qualifying on that weekend?

He move was perfectly LEGAL. I don't think he gained any time by going on the gravel.

Rossi never ever said that Stoner is not a good rider.
What Stoner is is a very bad looooooser.
