Imo, Casey is calm when he wins, and since he has won four times this season, he has been quite calm. When victory is uncertain, he is quick to unleash vitriol and punches.



Stoner's remarks don't really change my opinion of him. His appeal is his riding, and to a lesser extent, his willingness to trade punches with whiny Marlboro executives.


This is why Hayden and Stoner ultimately get on. Hayden knows how it gets at the top and he seems pretty good at empathy. This whole thing was probably over after a few minutes.



Bit of molehill being built for some readership, especially when they seem highly "prompted" questions.



You have too have a thick skin if you are at Hayden and Stoners level ( and you have beaten Rossi ), Stoner sure has and I'm pretty sure Nicky does too

Which is exactly why Ducati are in their current state of poo, Randy said that Sunday was the worst race of his life! He

thought was going to crash 3 times a lap!



Stoner's ride for the win or bin, lulled Duc into a false sense of security as we all know. Going for the win on the current Duck

takes a lot of talent, which Stoner showed, I have no doubt that

Rossi could do the same, however the smart rider knows where

the limit is and how to reach it consistently without crashing,

developing a bike so that it can get here and be competitive is

the key, not one off wins-closely followed by a crash. This

maybe gets you to 4th.....



Nicky is one of the nicest guys in the paddock, and once again a simple conversation afterwards would have been the more

mature thing to do-as I've mentioned before several times

already this year-so far this season Stoner has had serious

issue with Hayden, Loris, Randy, Hector, Rossi and Aoyama....



Stoners current extremely arrogant attitude towards the majority of the field is utterly nauseating to witness, he is setting himself

up for a big fall, hopefully the gods of racing will once again

punish him soon.......I've spoken to a lot of Aussie race fans recently and all of them are in agreement that they would love to support Casey as his talent is incredible, however he makes it impossible to do so by being the biggest cock in the sport.

All the previous 5 replies are very, very true.





............. I still hate the moaning though.





......not just Stoner..........bloody Lorenzo when he gets going !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..............Simo may be dangerous.......but the shit Hee-Haw used as an example was absolutley laughable.





If you ride into someones leg.......how is that their fault?





Pedrobot............



c'mon........toughen up...........if you have a problem...........punch it out in private later ( let us read about it, but leave some mystery...makes it more tantalising !!)..........don't carry on like a 5 year old

" Waaaaaaaaa.........mum !!!!...........he hit me....took my toy" ect





As Doohan said of Biaggi..........





Maybe they should all get Kleenex on board as a sponsor.

Honda knew this , thats why they courted Stoner. They suspected they had a good bike but none of their riders was capable of getting it to the limit.



Ducati had the rider who could find the limit, they just didn't know how to keep iit under him.



How anyone can say "they are building a championship winning bike" by running around 3 seconds off pace is beyond me .........



When will we see this championship winning bike? I suspect only when it wins championships ........ how many champions have got there running around in 5th or 7th before? ............
Would that also be the same boat that Casey was in after he won his championship, the boat to no championships. Casey rode the piss out of it and he is the winningest rider in the 800 era but where are his championships. This is Ducati's fault, not Casey's or Rossi's. Casey is in a better place now and rightfully so, I'm not a big fan but he is amazing and earned his ride onto the top bike, he deserves this like no other, the top guy should be on the top bike. To say that Casey is the only one who can bring the Honda to it's limit is an insult to Pedro who is also lightning fast but can't finish a season because he seems to be made of glass.

I agree Pedro is a fast rider and I am a great fan but he has just not got that extra "X" to win a WC. It may well be an insult, but I will say it.



And Honda hired Stoner which could be seen as a gross insult to Pedro ......... they could go on forever not insulting Pedro ....... but where would they be ?

Pedro hasn't been able to deliver a full season yet due to all his injuries, he had to of known they were eventually going to go out and get some insurance. They just happened to get the world's greatest policy. As much as I don't like Casey for being a douche I'm happy he's on a damn good bike, he deserves it, but it doesn't mean I have to like the little turd. I hope you Stoner fans enjoy your time as I think he'll be the first to get some back to back championships in a while, I've had my share of fun watching Mladin and Hayden.

What a stoopid beat up over sweet fuck all - most of you crap on about Aliens and others to tuffen up and get on with it on and off the track but most of you do the same here via your posts whinning and bitching this or that.....heck its the net and the keyboard is your armour.

So the little fella had an opportunity to have a dig about KK-the Duc and VR - this would have been expected sooner or later this season DOH and so would any other ex rider when in their new team and on a good thing.

As for Talpa - biggest cock in sport quote - how do you know ? more like your eating it eh and it doesn't taste good
