Strong person is a person who can take pressure. Not run away from it. In this case, Stoner is very talented, but wasting his talent with his weak heart and always moaning, not always gratitude what he had. What a waste...

Casey Stoner-Super fast, lots of skill and very much a racer-wants to win! Being at the top level of his sport gives him the right to have an opinion. Retires from the sport at 27 as a 2 time world champion on 2 manufacturers. Total of 38 Premier class wins and 45 all up and a lot of podiums. With stats like that it is scary to think how many more races he could have won and C/ships etc. Casey does not give sanitised or politically correct answers in the paddock about his sport. That is why some of the best bike journalists in the world(Colin Young, Michal Scott etc) want to speak to him. However, Casey also has a reputation as a person who complains too much. He recently stated that he had lost his passion for the sport and the paddock is not as friendly as it used to be. Fair enough-however there are two sides to any coin. I know there were two other Aussie riders working themselves up in the moto3 class who happen to worship the guy. Casey never went out of his way to say hello, mak

i think that attitude just goes to show why hes not interested in racing anymore because its more about looking good and being a politician.

I think you guys, who like to judge the man with out knowing him personally instead of the racer, for which is his intent would do well to check out Bruce Lee's philosophy about being a 'star' 'flowing' and being 'honest' with oneself. I watched it recently and was set aback at how much it sounded like Bruce was talking about Casey when he was sharing his own personal opinions about the way 'things are.'

btw, some times worshiping other people isn't healthy.
I admire the he11 out of Casey for being honest in the thick of night.

I may be a Neanderthal but I just knew this thread would rapidly turn into a hate fest.

If anyone finds fault with Stoner, even if it is justified, he is automatically branded a Rossi fan.

You can swap the two names around and the same is true.

Sounds like the idea to quit has not gone to plan and he is planning for a return. I cant see MotoGP changing just so Casey can get his own way so its up to him to just shut up and get back on the Honda if they can still find a bike for him next year.

Seriously, why hasn't Vilas been banned from this site? Pure, deliberate, inflamitory rubbish. Why does he compare Simo to Casey - Simo was never at any point at a level to race Casey and never would have been. He died by rider error, which he committed frequently, and bad luck. Oh, but he did carry the clown mantle off the bike for a bit...

Very sad to see Stoner go. A true racer, not one of these riders where their 'look' off the bike is more important than how they do battle off the track. It is a shame that that sort of rider has attracted the 'tyoe' of fans that have shifted the priorities of the sport. The reasons you hear for people 'hating' a rider are laughable - or maybe it is just me who wants to see the qualities of the best in the world on track, rather than seeing the riders as virtual friends that I will never meet!

I hope to see a return, but I'd specualte their is more chance of JL pulling the plug on his own career, from the way he has talked about the future, than
