Why is it that its ALWAYS Rossi's fans who get sledged for disliking Casey?? Those of you who suposedly dislike Valentino sure do mention his name alot...Maybe you are really fans....and with regard to Casey.. I dont care one way or another what he does next..AND Marco has NOT been forgotten and NEVER will be forgotten.. Marco will be remembered LONG after people forget Casey....

i know my inglis is bad but if you find the mistakes you can read and understand what i whant to say.. I dont bored if people pay atencion or Not to what i write!! I just write to express my feeling to Crash.Net and If Stoner read this and understand whati say is even better for me..ehehe

I think i have put out good points on what i write on the last posts and when people say that Casey is bitching a lot wihtout any good reason they are right.. He just dont make any sence, maybe was better for him to think on building is own business to fight against Dorna for the rights of Motogp and star a new fantastic Legacy.. Maybe with Casey on Full command we will have bikes with V8 engines and 15 manufacters brands on the grid..ahaha

while i do respect his decision to leave motogp, his reasons for it sound vague

as of the last 2 years, rossi was the most hated rider in forums etc....we dont see him deciding to leave

stoner has a lot of fans too which he seems to have ignored in this case.....a rider races for his fans rather than leaving due to his haters

he says family wasnt an issue but i think he also mentioned it during the season that he got very less time with his family due to the packed schedule

what i feel is stoner liked the adrenaline mode during racing but he didnt enjoy the bike riding in itself...and as such in the last season there hasnt been too much of excitement....that along with the lack of family time made him decide to leave...

I'm sure he doesn't but if you ever read these boards stoner please forgive the idiots who are out to put you down at every turn. They aren't true fans, by definition they can't be. Any supporter of any sport wants to see one thing, the best of the best compete. We true fans are the ones who may have been screaming for the under dog or the local favorite but in the end still looked on with awe and total respect as you scream in to shot with the back end out still carrying more speed than anyone else could manage. If you had walked past me on a motogp raceday you would have the respect that a king of the track like yourself deserves. That's coming from a brit. You've never been as hated as it seems, the problem is haters will always be more vocal.

stoner has treated fans like ****e for years . He has ran away from them and hidden not because anyone spat on him . He has had a huge chip on his shoulders for years. Just last week he denied this story about supercars on his tweet .He thinks it is all about himself .I wonder how he will deal with fans at supercars . He disrespected the sport by not attending world Champions awards a couple of years ago to hon nob at supercars . Can anyone remember him promoting his sponsors . Honda bent over backwards to keep him happy by letting him avoid promotional duties . He is an absolute great rider but that doesn't make him a great person

Vilas, Casey left racing because it was being "dummed down"... He left because of the immense amount of travel, how many other riders travel with a wife and young baby. Casey left because the series was going backwards, CRT bikes that are 30-40 kph slower.... Is that the answer. He always said he was there to ride the best bikes available. The full prototype machines. Every year something else changes. Now we have 1000cc bikes with all the rider aids that you get on a Cbr 1000, or a YZFR1... Its obvious to anyone who watches withtheir eyes open that he was among the top 6 riders ever, a point backed by many of the top riders and commentators. Tell me, who is your favourite rider??

Like or dislike stoner, no one can rationally disagree that he doesnt seem to know what he wants...and to be fair, at 27 more dont than do

He felt like retiring in 09 because ducati "disrespected" him, he left ducati in 10 because of ??(no one but stoner knows), he left the sport in 12 because of family, then because he fell out of love with the sport and now because he was disrespected (common theme?).

As much as I disagree with many of his fans posts on this site, I do feel for the guy because he really does seem to be "lost" at the moment.

As for a return, I seriously doubt it only on the basis that it will be 15 at the earliest which makes him 30 and 2 years off a GP machine, rule changes and direction opposite to his liking (the worlds economy is getting better anytime soon).

You dont understand what i writte.. Riders are there to ride not to complain about what they have to ride.. Stoner is and if he had continued for 3 or more 4 years or even 5 he would be riding Full prototips has he has been riding since 2006.. Rossi also complain about many changes on the sport first was when the 500 cc 2 strokes where finish, then he complain when the 800 cc where intruduce.. tell me because he didnt enjoy Dorna change that?? NO.. they had 2 strokes then 1000cc , then 800cc and now 1000 again and we never know what comes next but the Riders are there to ride... My favorit rider and the person i most admired is Rossi and aim not a hater of Stoner hi recognized is Speed and talente but like some other guys had say is mind i will never understand, he dont make sence.. Rossi is a fighter allways understand the sport even on is bad moments.. im every aspect for me Rossi is incredible.. A ******* King thats why he have so many records and like every human we have th

@Vilas .
give it a break mate!!
after all those long comments you are actually saying in your last that stoner is not making any sense!!! , i could understand the broken english fine , but had no chance in hell of understanding what your trying to tell us all , the only thing that is clear is you have a tiny little bit of dislike of casey and would probably spit on him or push him off his scooter if the chance came along.
on topic...the one year deal shows he is under no illusions of his chances in cars and being realistic in his approach to the sport , he is not giving himself a lot of time to find his mojo , so i believe if he is only midpack by the end he won't hang around.
hopefully return to bikes.
