MotoGP » Casey Stoner: Why I'm leaving MotoGP


Really disappointed with his reasoning. Basically, he's saying that he has taken the attitudes and words of others to heart. Sorry, that is not good enough. Motorsport is a very tough sport that requires mettle both on and off the track. To come out and admit that he didn't have the mettle to get past how others were toward him, well, that's just pathetic. Sheene, Roberts, Lawson, Rainey, Doohan. These guys were tough until the very end, and beyond. I think Stoner is actually the most talented rider I've seen but he has brought himself undone by placing too much weight on the wrong things and letting them get the better of him. Such a shame.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to retire from MotoGP!


I'm upset. You are a long time retired. You are only young once. This is a decision he will regret when he comes to fully understand these two facts. Unfortunately, you don't come to fully understand these two facts until you reach an age at which it is too late to do anything about it. Bad decision, bad advice from those around him. You don't waste talent like that. You put it to full use then savour the remainder of your life when the time truly does come. At 26, that time is several years away.

MotoGP » Portuguese MotoGP, Estoril - Race Results


@billywiz "Its actually about money the teams and riders are just a means to an end." From whose perspective? My statement was "from the teams' and riders' perspective", but you appear to be addressing a perspective I wasn't talking about. By all means, tell me I'm wrong lol Just make sure I'm wrong about something I actually said. And when I say "team", I'm talking about the spanner spinners - the guys responsible for making the bike go. Yes, money is a concern but the concern of those financing a team, not those tuning or racing a machine. If anyone has the luxury of making tuning or racing decisions on the basis of making things more entertaining so they can generate more money, which is what you appear to be saying should happen, then those tuners/racers must not have much in the way of competition. If you hav

MotoGP » Portuguese MotoGP, Estoril - Race Results


cont... The so-called 'shows' in years previous were entertaining for sure, but the 'show' was artificial, borne from a guy with advantages over everyone. To make my point, why is this 'show man' not putting on the same show today? Quite obviously, because the advantage over the field he once enjoyed is no longer there. No advantage, no 'show'. I don't want to see an artificial show because a guy has an advantage that lets him play with the competition. I want to see a group of talented guys on pretty equal machinery doing the best they can do. That's what we saw last year and it's what we are seeing this year. Personally, I find it intense and it's motorsport. And motorsport is never boring to me. Rossi has given some great things to this sport but one thing I'll never thank him for is the multitudes of "I want my show" mentalities he has brought to a sport which, from the racer's perspective, is about winning, not entertaining. I want gen
