Er Prof-x you may want to watch that again...in no way was CS 'almost pushed off the track'..he was on the inside line on the corner and so had the whole track to his left. VR ( I think in the heat of battle ) misjudged a lunge and had nowhere to go except off the track...which as it happened played in his favour. At no point did they touch.I find it hardly credible that that was a deliberate move...I mean on those machines and on that corner at full flight.....that's asking to crash.

and no, you do not have to be deliberate or have premeditation to actually push some wide and off a track. As soon as Rossi left the track and on to the dirt he gave up his excuse, he was riding over the limit and almost caused a pretty serious accident. There is hard racing, then there is abusing the safety of the riders around you.

Abuse is when you fk up, break the limits of the track and endanger other people. A completely and utterly valid complaint. But the one eyed fans only care about who wins and who loses, something Casey might have alluded to when he was talking about Simoncelli and having a bias towards the show rather than the safety of the riders.

So when Stoner over-rode his Honda in 2006 and skittled Gibernau, causing him to break his collarbone and errectively end his competitive career, we don't mention it eh? Gibernau didn't moan like a ****

Gibernau's hopes ended in Catalunya that year (2006), he was injured for more than a few rounds that year,

... and if you actually watch the replay

Stoner is ahead of Gibernau when he loses control of his bike and Gibernau is unfortunately collected by Stoner's bike. This was not Stoner racing hard against Gibernau, losing control of his bike and running in to Gibernau.

Stoner should shut up now, he has gone, history. We heard enough whining when he was still riding. This is a dangerous sport. Pity he didnt have the same respect for Simoncelli when he was alive. Stoner may be the best natural talent the bike world will ever see.....pity he dosent have the character to go with it

Stoner is the most disliked person in the paddock & this is from riders ,mechanics & their girl friends & yes they know him unlike most in this forum .

He was asked by a little girl to have a photo with him & he came up with crap that he wasn't allowed to she went up to Alvaro & asked him & he picked her up for photo & told her dad if they got photo printed he would sign it for him .

He had security surrounding him to stop fans getting near him in the paddock in case they wanted an autograph & he wasn't on a scooter !!

Meanwhile other riders like Jorge would walk through & if someone wanted a photo or autograph he would stop unless of course he was about to go on track .

He is an awesome rider but sadly not a very nice person

Just throwing this out there if Rossi was in with a chance of the championship, like Casey was in 2009 with Lorenzo and Rossi. They went into the catalunya gp all virtually level in the championship. If Rossi says he has lactose intolerence and takes 5 races out. He would have been labelled a bottler and everything else.
