.... part 2
"That was part of it, but more it was the direction of the sport.

"We lost a rider a couple of years ago (Marco Simoncelli) and with in a month it was like it never happened. They want to see biff and barge and they don't realise our lives are on the line.

"We became puppets in that world and it had nothing to do with racing."

Spoken like a true racer not a media tart

want to be a famous well known name in racing?
just say something about casey stoner and the exposure will get you out there instantly.
over a hundred comments for a julian simon who would otherwise not even get a thread let alone a comment.
funny thing is he didn't even understand a word casey said.

the problem with why so many people miss the point casey is trying to get out is because no one gives themself enough time to digest what is being said.
first you have to understand just what it is that stoner has a problem with in the first place.
it comes down to irate fans and sly officials.
then the simple trick is to pinpoint exactly when he is switching from fans to officials and back to fans.
its not hard to do and can save you getting lost in misinterpretation.

Clearly whilst Casey may be an exceptional rider he also seems to be exceptional in his lack of Social Skills. This must be the reason why he always lost popularity contests and this may in fact be the real reason why he abandoned MotoGP. He in fact ran away from it knowing that even when he was world champion Rossi remained by far more popular than him. He bitterly commented on this before.

@Oxygen theifs (sic). I presume you were trying to be "above the fray" by stating Max and Moe's posts were "non-cogent" as they didn't adhere to your blinkered view.
Unfortunately you failed badly as 1) you obviously didn't understand what they meant and 2) the correct terminology for your name would be "oxygen thieves".
Irony plus.

Part of Casey' communication problems stem from the fact that he mixes up we and I all the time.
EG I retired because WE got spat at. Reading that literally anyone would think that all the riders get spat at. I guess he uses 'we' out of respect for his team but often he leaves himself open to misunderstanding.

What led him to think that fans want 'biff or barge', more likely they want close racing. If he means the apparent disrespect for the death on the track then it's ironic that it was an unfortunate, one of a kind incident. Marco's tyre gripped and steered him back into the racing path. What could be done about that, make tyres that don't grip after you've fallen off?

I suppose what I'm getting at is that Simon should keep his comments to himself.

btw who is Simon.
