On the off chance you actually arenít my old pal JK, plaudits for beginning to catch on though. My own prediction based on the Valencia test would be:
Winner: Not Rossi
Runner up: Not Rossi
Third: Unlikely to be Rossi
Lol, fair enough

Mr. synn, this is not really the right place to attack the posters with weak Whorstershaire sauce on milk toast. Most of the regulars here are pretty lucid and knowledgable, and smart enough to know that this is the internet, and they can't really be intimidated by your empty threats.

Despite what you want to believe, because it is easy for you, this is not a Stoner fan site. It just has a lot of people who have followed racing for a long time, and many appreciate Stoner. I am a Stoner fan. He did things that reminded me of Kenny Roberts, Sr. and other guys, but with his own uniqueness. But, I have argued with others on this site about Stoner and other riders. It is not a fan club here, for anyone. (Thank goodness). Dovi came close this year to fan club status, but I understand the sentiment.

On topic:
All the champions have shown moments of stress, including Stoner, Rossi, Lorenzo, and Marquez. Rossi has had several really obvious moments. And Stoner had a couple that really stood out for me. It happens to even the best, obviously. Imagine the stress of trying to keep a rider job, while riding for a Aprilia satellite team or equivilant. That could wear on ya', even if you are young and stupid.
I think people sometimes forget these riders are human beings.

I think people forget that anyone famous whether actors, singers or athletes etc are humans.

Listen folks, I hate to break it to you. It's almost 2018. Stoner has been gone for more than half a decade. Maybe it's time to stop talking about him and SNS and the moon landing in every single thread...
I hate to break it to you. This forum is dominated by people who couldn't give a fuck about your opinion. You're pissing in the wind. Try selling this shit over on Crash. In fact they'd eat it up. Since you claim you know of no other racing forum, I'll even give you the link. Believe me, you'll feel right at home. Crash.Net | F1 & MotoGP | Motorsport News

Yea synn, how dare you share your motogp opinion on a motogp forum where everyone doesn't share your point of view. Shame on you. I'm offended.

Walt and Stoner both don't like people disagreeing with them.
That's why Walt tries to run off the disagreeing parties and Stoner stays at home (Where he is the undisputed GOAT).

Racing is fucking stressful. I don't care if you are the father and it is your kid racing mx for fun. It's extremely stressful. I find a big reason why people who race for fun do it is because of the high stress. It makes mondays stress a lot easier to handle. But when you are racing for a living the stress is astronomical and can have so very strange effects on the human mind and body. I've seen people cope with these stresses in many ways. Some by being clowns, some by smiling and pretending it isn't there, some jut shut down, and others just can't cope. There is never a point when a person is satisfied monetarily that makes them content. Racers race and are fucking stressed out of their minds trying to maintain an edge over everyone else. The only thing we see is how they handle it.
