Ramon, it's like this...
A bloke named Agostini has something like 15 world championships (which is more than 9 last time I checked!) yet it's widely acknowledged that another fellah by the name of Hailwood was the real racer and simply the best rider of the era.
Just as your flared jeans and mesh singlet go in and out of fashion, the Rossi/Stoner era is a repeat of that. Just like Hailwood, Stoner came, saw and made it to the top in his own refreshing no bull style, don't get all shirty just cause he exposed a lot of myths and ruined a lot of dreams on the way.
As they say...
It's quality, not quantity that counts.

Hey Roman I am off to the same charity event that Tequila was talking about....with Stoner, Bayliss, Crump and a heap of others racing each other this month to raise money for childrens cancer.
You can also go into the pits to talk to the riders.

Stoner is also doing track days with us mere mortals....I know a lot of us are glad he went fishing.

Seems the only ones complaing are the Rossi fans.

By the way it was Edwards that gave Rossi the goat title, not the MotoGP community, seems a bit irelevent doesnt it when it is not official.
Wonder what people think when they visit the Ducati museum and see Rossi up there as the Goat....Not !!

FACT: Rossi will treat us to yet another season of spectacular racing skills.

FACT: Stoner(The Legend) will go fishing.

You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have The Facts of Life, the Facts of Life.


There can only ever be one G.O.A.T. You can't change history.

I mean come on Rossi say's Stoner rode like a god at Cat and you dont say that if he only passed on the straight.
Also Rossi said after the PI race that, that was the best second of his racing and that he tried his hardest to win and to try and pass would have been disaster for him and possible Stoner.
Also anybody that has anything to do with bikes could tell Rossi was sliding his ar5e off trying to beat Stoner.
