but thank god Rossi is not weack like Pedrosa.. Rossi fight hard to get what he whant!! And since Ducati loss there advantage of the 2007 year , bye bye Ducati.. If Casey had in mind that he was the best he had to think again because was not only 2008!! Rossi remember Casey again in 2009 who still was the boss in the game..

Correction, Rossi almost put Casey in to the wall because he decided to pull off a risky move going down the corkscrew. Casey had every right to complain about that dangerous move, that most people would not have been able to react to in time, look at the replay, Casey adjusts his line in the space of a few feet and almost runs off the course.

People dont like Casey because he was the real sunshine on MotoGP, waking up the sleepers. Rossi really is the moon, reflecting/misdirecting the light, I think he (Rossi) has seen the light though, and isn't the same believer he used to be, so his time has past, but it would still be good to see him wrap up his career with an honest win.

whats that exactly? everybody fawning over Marc Marquez and opponents getting gifted the opportunity to have like machinery or equal tire performance? Sounds pretty bleak to me, ...

Casey was right, this class of racing is going down down down the drain.

We have come full circle now (again)...its the tires fault?

Some facts...

Multiple riders & teams have complained about the current tire both last year and this year.

Multiple riders & teams have complained about tires every year from the birth of Christ.

Multiple riders & teams have suffered to varying degrees from tire issues at different tracks since the birth of Christ.

...There can be only one winner of a race so EVERYONE else blames tires, engine rules, engines, chasis, electronics etc....its called 'human nature" I believe.

Nice beat-up by Crash though, from all the variables and complex issues involved, Crash tweaks the rossi v stoner angle....again.

As for the "moaner" tag, it had little to do with LS'08 and everything to do with this human nature element. When you lose you tend to look for excuses, when you win you tend to be happy......STONER MANAGED TO BE UNHAPPY AND COMPLAIN EVEN WHEN HE WON.

A. Casey was a perfectionist, if you can't get over the fact that he was always critical of himself get over it,

if you can't stand that he didn't like idiots endangering his life, then get a grip.

B. Before 2009 teams had the opportunity to go with another tire supplier, the BS about BS being better is BS, Lorenzo beat Rossi on BS his first race, the move to BS was complete BS politics. Anyone who believes in that lie deserves to be a slave for life, enjoy your television and classical conditioning.

C. If you don't get Casey because he didnt fulfill your needs to be entertained by a clown get a life.

btw look at the top 7 finishers in 2008 and tell me how many of them were on Bridgestone, not counting Dani Pedrosa whom Repsol forced to move to Bridgestone, not seeing any benefit after that until 2010.

** oh yeah, special mention to Toseland rocking the Island in 2008, turned on his own clinic --Stoner-lite, and showed he had the speed, just not the pace, BS didn't help him any.

Great observation Dave.
When do you think crash will give up reporting on a guy that gave up on the sport 2 seasons ago?
