So, Stoner's parents selling everything they had and supporting their son why he chased his dream was spoiling him? Didn't have it hard like Rossi and other Italian and Brazilian riders who were given top of the line bikes in their rookie years and lived out of motorhomes and were only a couple of hours from home. Stoner was spoiled living 15,000KM from home in a caravan in the front yard of Puig's house. He now owns a farm in Australia that will provide a six figure income and he will never have to touch the tens of millions he has banked. He has a portfolio of shares that will provide more money per year than 99.9% of the population earn. But he is going to go broke and knows nothing of the real world? I think farmers know more of the real world than anybody, don't you? He is not retiring to a penthouse somewhere. He is working the land like his family has for generations.
