Wiley, I do not deny the achievement of Stoner in my two posts. I try to liken him to Wenger (sorry if you don't follow football) a great champion, but not as great as Ferguson due to the difference in number of titles. In terms of head to head, that is my personal opinion. It is not to say that Casey has not been successful, but to say that in my opinion titles are at more important than head to head, which in this instance has been influenced purely by the fact that the two riders peaked at different moments. There are certainly flaws to my logic, but those are my opinions. Whilst it is factually correct that you state Stoner is the most successful between 2006 and 2012, it could also be factually correst to state that Rossi is the most successful from 2000-2012 which encompasses those years you mention. I do not deny the 06-12 stat is fact, I just think that it gives bias to the peak of stoner. You do make good reasoning though and I realise that you personally don't believe that
