Synn, yes! The first "natural talent" on that Duc. I had read somewhere that 2007 was meant for Loris, but I think a crash he had in 2006 (the Catalunya crash or some kind of post-season testing?) was a major drawback to his career -psychology-wise as he wasn't seriously injured-, ended up a rear gunner for Casey.
I was never a huge fan of Capirex after the Harada incident at Argentina. However, the 990 GP3 - GP4 that he and Bayliss rode was a beast and I always enjoyed watching him on the 500 when he rode for Sito.

I still believe had it not been for Catalunya 06, he may have won the championship that year...but am thankful to say that it was earned by a better man.

I wouldn't call Casey a man (I mean "man" as belonging to the human race).

Casey was something else and man do I miss him...

I also figure there is some kind of central authority rule, I mean the sporting section (Corse in this case) doesn't enjoy many degrees of freedom. Maybe a structural drawback, I don't know.
I note quoted in your post the assertion that Rossi didn't have much choice in 2010, but in fact he had the choice of staying at Yamaha and getting beat by Lorenzo.

Plus, he said better man, not rider. And as you said, stoner wasn't a human being

I Ride: pillion with hubs on 1200 Bandit :) Do have a full bike licence though
My boy finally wins a race on that bloody bike! I was quite honestly overcome with emotion!! So they got the bit for him but its too little too late...

At least he can leave Ducati with Some pride in place, and take what he has learnt onto the next venture...
