Beg to differ with some of you but Stoner would have been right there. Reckon having a child changed his attitude and thats why he retired. Nothing to do with MM coming along. Stoner never avoided a good scrap, thats a fact.

I must admit, I've been lured into the post battles between Rossi & Stoner fans in the past, but now I find myself regretting it. Casey was not the flamboyant personality, but a straight-talking, fast as heck racer! This was the Doohan way, and it seems to be the Aussie way as well (Bayliss, Gobert). Easily the fastest rider when he had the bike he wanted. Vale's fans are very passionate, and Casey's are equally as passionate. This is why the wars were waged. I truly believe that had Casey been here, he'd have continued to be amongst the top 3 at most tracks. We still might have a 5-way battle with Bradl showing glimpses of podium potential this year.

I agree there is def going to be some elbow-to-elbow racing but the only people who have something to prove are Vale and Marc
Lorenzo and Dani are fast and everyone knows that but they have to be wary of rossi and marquez as proven in qatar - Marquez 3rd - Dani 4th and Jorge 1st - Rossi 2nd after coming from about 5 seconds down
You cannot forget about Crutchlow either !!!!!
it is a real shame we are losing stoner this year he was a real talent and would have made the racing a bit more exciting
