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.

@ Fan.
Donnington 2000. Nastro Honda. Capiroosi and Criville were on full factory bikes. Rossi was on a ( maybe factory spec ) bike, but in a private team.

Part1
No I would say Stoner would of started disliking Rossi in 2007 and most probably before in 0607 off season when Burgess was publicly punting for Stoner as a replacement for Edwards at Yamaha and Rossi pulled the Edwards must stay or he would go line, because harmony in the box was important and he didn't want Stoner in the team! Team harmony? Fast forward to 2010, the last time he used the me or him line and the team harmony wall went up. We know how that finished. In 2007 Rossi perpetuated the 'missle' theory continually pimping the superiority of the bike in straightline, the tyres and the electronics, which irked Stoner. The facts however show that Capirossi finished over 200 points behind Stoner and noone ever came close to him on the ducati in 08,09 and 10. Obviously the last two years has not taught Rossi much in the way of humility.

Casey aka light switch Stoner, a legend in hes own mind cant carry Rossi jock strap even with the help of his 20,30 fans.Rossi is only stating facts in 07 when Stoner won the WC he had Rossi as one of his heros, idles on his vest, after that Stoner started hating Vale.I say get over your self Stoner and stop being a little girl that goes for your fans to, it was just a f-ing race and there could be only one winner.And to the guy thats hopes Vale gets punted by Marquez, yea he might cry for a race or two,but not till the end of time like you and Casey are.

Ehhmm,

Why should you like loosing from anyone? Championship winning riders don't like to loose. That is why Rossi made moves that bumped Giveupnau and Melandri of the track, crashed into Stoner in the wet and did this Corkscrew pass. And if you are the one on the other side, there is no reason absolutely to simply accept that. If you accept it and are not motivated in any way to retaliate, you will never be a champion. That is why Biaggi is now a WSBK champion and a Gibernau has won **** all.
That is also the big difference between Marquez and many other riders. The guy is committed and doesn't care much about others. Looks loose on TV, but he is a winner. The one sitting in the gravel crying like a baby isn't.

At least some passes by Stoner showed more class, round the outside on the straight of Laguna for example. Twice. Rossi is more like Marquez. Dishing it out. And the whining about the lack of fun in the paddock and how some riders don't like him. Talk about whining.
