MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner comeback wouldn't make a lot of sense

Yeah, he is a great talent, but I can't understand why any fans would want him to come back. Why did he leave the sport? Because he hated the fans. He hated doing interviews, he hated doing publicity events, he hated signing autographs. He hated the press. In short he hated everything fans enjoy. He wanted the fans to acknowledge how wonderful he was while he shunned us and sneered at us. Why would any fan want that back? Racing exists because of the fans. Without us paying to see the races and supporting the racing, these guys would be nothing but poorly paid test riders at best and not wealthy international stars. Somehow Stoner never got that part of it and he despised the very thing that made him a wealthy young man who could retire and spend the rest of his life doing exactly as he pleased. He can keep his talent, I'd much rather spend my time and money on riders who appreciate us.

MotoGP » Marquez tempted by 2014 chassis switch

While everyone seems to be concentrating on how badly wrong Honda have got it, I think they are missing the real point. Yamaha have massively improved their bike this year. I suspect that the Honda probably isn't really any worse than last year, it's just that the Yamaha is so much better, Marquez has to ride closer to the edge of the performance envelope to attempt to keep up, with predictable results.

MotoGP » Rossi: Stoner comeback wouldn't make a lot of sense

He wasn't treated terribly well at times and he seemed really unhappy with the MotoGP circus so why would he want to put himself in that situation again? In what way was he not treated well? Became wealthy doing something most of us dream of doing? Actually, he treated us the fans poorly. He was disdainful of us. Talk about not knowing what side his bread was buttered on. Good riddance to him!

WSBK » Biaggi pips Giugliano to end Friday fastest

Robert Danley:
shakennstirred: it puts the so called top riders in WSBK to shame and they wonder why very few of them ever make the step up to MotoGP. this is why
Actually, Edwards, Bayliss, Toseland and Spies all WSBK champions tried and didn't do too well.
Need I remind you that Bayliss won a MotoGP race in a wildcard ride?
True, after not doing very well in both the factory Ducati and the Honda support MotoGP teams and returning to WSBK.
