Just seen the article and predicted exactly what comments would be on here.... Stoner hate comments and ''he cant do this or that'' comments.... He's testing tyres like Edwards is for Yamaha and like DePuniet was doing with the Suzuki bike.... No one started disrespecting them over it so why go out of your ways to do it with Stoner.... And for those of you who do, you're the main reason he doesn't race anymore, you're the fans who suck the life and fun out of the sport.
