@ 99 Crystal Ball.....I agree with what you are saying, mostly. I would add that Casey said that he would finish the year on the same bike that he started it with, which is Ducati's fault. Rossi left Ducati because they couldn't meet his requirements, as well as that his requests never got to the top of the food chain. Ducati's fault again.
My feeling is that their relative feedback skills, which are pretty high in both cases, were totally wasted.
As regards the fans, no difference in my mind, neither side tries to give a balanced view.
Stoner said that the only way to win on the 2009 Ducati was to over ride it to get heat into the front tire. When he got past the critical point he would win, often he crashed trying to get past the critical point. I have great admiration for him in his courage to do that. Rossi crashed 12 times in his first year on it, and I respect him for realising that he couldn,t do it.
