So, what was the point here, duder? I thought you were stepping away from the Stoner b.s.???

I don't completely grasp the reasons for the intensity of the continuous arguing on this site between certain members, but at least it gets people posting, and that is better than the "xopussyrtposrterj" threads. The wording is entertaining, sometimes, too.

___________ About the interview:
Color me an incredulous MotoGP fan with the following Forcada statement. I understand how to pivot a motorcycle on the front to induce a slide. So the front tire is important in that aspect, too. But I am skeptical about the claim Stoner didn't care about the rear. This is the rider who slid INTO corners and powered out virtually without using the front at all. This is the guy who threw the bike over into "Stoner corner" at 150 mph, without touching the brakes and drifted out under full power, again barely using the front tire at all.

Dub and JKD like to shit up any Stoner thread on this forum with their usual tag team efforts. That's why I feel less and less compelled to post here. Beavis and Butthead blame everyone else when a topic goes south and claim no one can take jokes here. It's like they share the same genetic components as Donald Trump.

To follow this up, I just received a couple of PM's this afternoon from members who longer post here to tell me that they stopped posting because of Dub and JKD. They said they got tired of reading Dub's bullshit where he instigates shit and then pretends like he did nothing to warrant whatever responses he gets. If they want to post and confirm this they can. As usual reality is a lot different from how Dub likes to portray it.

I have carefully avoided any confrontation with you Dub. Personally - if it were up to a vote as to whether you should leave, I would vote Dub stays. I can honestly say I've enjoyed a number of your posts. I've even "liked" a bunch of them. We all know where each of us stand on the Stoner thing. No reason for us to keep keep revisiting that. Nobody is obsessed with you man. Just tired of being mocked for liking a Living God.

I will confess to mild baiting, but in my usual pedantic way what I was attempting to do was back my underlying argument, which is that mention of Stoner even by Stoner tragics can sometimes be in context, given the thread concerned a grab from Forcada, currently rather heavily involved in the sport as the crew chief for a leading contender in Vinales if I am not mistaken, rather than a has been reminiscing in his dotage, and in no way initiated by any usual suspect/circle jerker on here.

Not trying to be overly nuanced Mike, but I think there's a pretty clear line between good natured taking the piss, and cynically "baiting" a person.

I don't know why you guys get so butthurt
I never disagreed about Stoner being an alien.
He is from another planet. He only came to live on Earth after the pressure of the atmosphere on his planet got too great.

Mate, Australia is another country, not a planet.

We may be a little out of this world, we may be weird, we may even be upside down, but it is just a country.

The only 'alien' we have in Oz is Sir Les Patterson

Mentions of Stoner around here invariably never work out even if it's a discussion as was the case here, on the comments made by someone who worked with Stoner directly. Either way the whole thing has gotten pointless since he's the only recent rider who gets questioned in a way that would make you wonder if he actually won any world titles and grands prix. It leaves me incredulous that a guy with multiple world titles continues to be questioned in terms of commitment by armchair jockeys. Winning one world title without commitment is impossible, and I suspect the probability involved with winning two titles without commitment would be impossible to quantify.

Either way this site has run it's course for me personally. It's been a pleasure here, and I learned quite a bit that I've enjoyed. I have nothing left to add here that hasn't already been said a thousand or million times by now and by those with far more intelligence. Hopefully Marquez wins the title again this year and indefinitely into the future as he's easily the most complete rider out there now. Only question for him will be if he can remain healthy for the upcoming years.

Anyhow, onto whatever the next thing is for me, and best wishes to all.

Don't go JP! I'll get blamed for that too.

Seriously, stick around.
