childish gentlemen really!!!
Gods sake is there really any need for all the name calling?? if anything this season has shown afew things.
1. Ducati are barking up the wrong tree with there chasis design and need to expect this and come up with a plan be or they will have wasted the money they paid out to get Rossi and Burgess on board. If they cant make the thing work properly no one can.
2. it shows how brave Stoner has been for the last few years to push so hard on a bike that clearly doesnt not have any feeling to it. So to win as many this as he did shows his talent plus also explains why he crashed out so often. who can blame him for moving on when honda can calling with a very sorted bike.
3. Rossi is a very different character to Stoner and has finished every Race this season as he's tried to get the bike to work properly, nothing they have come up with can take it up to the level Honda and Yamaha are at , and rather than rider beyond the point we're the bike loses feeling he's brought it home.
You can call that what you like, excuses , cowardly or plain common sense. Rossi finally started to admit the bike need to revert back to a conventional frame if they a hope of getting it onto the pace.
The haters say it excuses and he's past it, i just think its a 9 time world champ saying he's not willing to smash himself up overiding the thing like Casey used too . Do people really believe Rossi has gone backwards to a 7th place finisher overnight??? come on get really and admit the truth to yourselves.
I for one will put my hand up and say ive got Stoner totally wrong and have gained massive respect for the Guy this season . some of the things he does on that honda are unreal, and no it aint just down to the bike!!!!
