lets give credit where credits due... Dani did take out Nicky and I could have cost him the title but Rossi crashed in Valencia... Dani's excuse was he still had a chance to gain points to win the championship ( hard to believe) but that's what he said... But more impotently in the vary next race Dani kicked Nicky a leg and let him pass, watch the race and see for yourself... trust no one was more pissed then I to see that crash, but Dani did make up for it...

as for deserving.... you are 100% correct , 8 years in motogp always on a factory bike ie. best eq and no titile kina sad, but you gota earn it. otherwise Colin Edwards would have a few more wins lol...

Nicky, tho gifted a few races that year after the Seta Geberwho ducati crash, where he took out half the grid and sideline Caporossi and others, gives reason to, you gota finish to win! Nicky was consistent that year, and won.

hopefully Dani will be as well, as much as I hate to use the word, he does seem to deserve

'To Win a title in this game is very impressive'

Especially since 2007, when we have had 4 very consistent and very fast riders at the front - the aliens. You don't get that level of competition all the time , the c last time it was this tough was probably the early 90s with Rainey, Doohan, Lawdon, Shwantz, AND Gardner.

lol, Nicky Hayden: "I have a soft spot in my heart for TOni Elias" "thank to Toni, I always love him"( Words from Nicky himself). Toni Elias cost Rossi 2006's title and gifted it to Nicky!!

Before you all start celebrating, JL needs to prove himself on the Ducati first before he can be considered a great.
Rossi can be a hundred time champion but since he cannot ride the Ducati he cannot be called the GOAT. Because to be a GOAT a rider must be successful on the Ducait. Stoner is the GOAT.

Danny was 125 and 250 WC. Better rider than Nicky perhaps because of that. It's not only the number of WC you have but the circumstances under which they were achieved. Emilio Alzamora 125 WC but no race win that year. CS, WS on inferior machinery.

@ Ducati stupidity-stick

For casey to be named GOAT, he should go back to lower class and win at least one title in moto2 and moto3, and most importantly a 500cc title.
