Cubikrube-He's not talking about us (fans-public) forgetting Marco!! He's saying the MotoGP circus, the show, the Dorna parade didn't have the decency to let the fans know of Simo's death at the circuit of Sepang the day of his accident. The PA announcer just told everyone the race is cancelled, and it's no wonder the fans were annoyed an booing. Aside from that, the media show carried on at the next round as if nothing had happened, no-one was saying F-ALL about the incident. Just use your brain and think a little bit and try to understand more about what Stoner is saying. You lot aren't understanding what's happening behind the scenes, if you did much more of Stoners' comments from the day he announced his retirement would make more sense. If you did you'd see that much of what he's been saying is spot on.

CRASH.NET editors - you removed my post stating it was reference to a past sad event. Sorry have I missed the point completely or did I misread the quote from Casey referencing said past sad event? All I said was he seems to be using it as a platform to make his point about MotoGP

EDIT by CRASH.NET! Irrelevant comment removed.

re: "The truth is that I don't share Stoner's view. I do not think people have forgotten a rider like Simoncelli... nor Kato and Tomizawa, and hopefully it will never happen again."

sorry simon, but casey is correct. however, try not to take his comments personal as they are not directed at the passionate, in-touch few like yourself who haven't forgotten.

sad, but true... a great majority went deaf, dumb, and blind well inside the anniversary mark. :rolleyes: the only tragedy greater than any singular accident is when a larger collective fails to learn from history. erecting memorials and renaming facilities are but token acts.

Unfortunately I've got to agree with Stoner to an extent, having marshalled at club level, British Superbikes, World Superbikes and MotoGP for several years. I was disgusted to see people booing him at Donington on Day Of Champions, and the same with people booing Kiyonari and Greg Lavilla at Brands when they won the BSB championships, simply because they beat British riders to take the crown- nicer blokes you really couldn't wish to meet. I was on-scene at Thruxton BSB when a bike went into the crowd and took down a couple of blokes in front of their kids- while we were holding up a screen to let the medics deal with them, you had a good number of people holding up mobile phones to take pictures over the top. When Darren Mitchell was tragically killed at Brands, you even had some a-hole taking photos with a young lad at his side while he was being tended to, while grown men were crying at what they had seen- it takes a lot for a race marshal to react that way. You only have to look at

When you see Casey Stoner, you know theres some whingeing and griping comin....I mean, this is the guy who complains when he WINS races....sitting at the post race briefing with his contorted face moaning about somethng or other...i dont get how people can warm to this guy....very immature and frankly very naive if he thinks people will appreciate this attitude,...and he does want people to like him cos al he ever goes on about is respect...pity he cant show it to other riders or the fans.

@TrueFan
Missed my point again, which was not aimed at you anyway. My comment was removed for referencing a past sad event and I was told to stay on topic when the whole article is from a quote of Stoner's talking about that same sad event!
Trouble is with the quote from Stoner, for someone who speaks his mind he is ill-considered in his wording and sufficiently vague that people can take it however they choose. Of course his supporters will claim it is reference to track safety and the way riders were treated. Others, like me, will view it differently as I have said in my comment earlier.
