OH BOY – MORON CITY! (2)
The “most successful rider of the 800cc MotoGP era” (2 x Titles & 33 x GP’s Won – compared with your man’s 2 x Titles & 21 x GP Wins) gets barbs & sly bullshit like yours as a “knee-jerk defense-mechanism” – where was VR yesterday again. Oh, that’s right, 9th – thanks to Dovi’s “off” that promoted Rossi up from 10th and just in front of the CRT boys. And, guys – Christ NOT on a bike! – only 2 x “soft” Podiums in two seasons to date – that’s a real “problem”! Not “fading” – more “disappearing”... Oh woe, despair & depression!!!!
Let’s look at FACTS so far this season to put Stoner’s “fading” under the microscope & some sunlight so we can all deduce the truth here: Round 1 @ Qatar- led from Laps 2-19 B4 his tyres went off= 3rd by 2 seconds. Rounds 2 @ Spain & 3 @ Portugal = Won both. Round 4 @ France wet tyre destroyed=3rd by 1.3 seconds. Round 5 @ Catalunya – never in it. Battled for 3rd with Dovi on wrecked rear tyre=4th Round 6 @ England -led Laps 5-11 B4 rear tyre went off – held-off Pedrosa with an incredible display of throttle-control & late braking to take 2nd.
Currently Trails Lorenzo by 25 Points – 140 V 115. At exactly the same time last year, Stoner led Lorenzo by 18 Points – 116 V 98 - as both riders had scored a zero each with a DNF. There isn’t much points & results difference year-to-year & rider-to-rider - and there is another 12 x Rounds still to go. Lorenzo chased & harried & wasn’t really & truly “out of it” until B4 Phillip Island in the penultimate (as Sepang was cancelled) Round 16 last year - when he fell & damaged his hand & finger for a DNS & zero points, handing his 2010 Title to Stoner.
It isn’t the rider at all “fading” – it is an unasked for & unwanted start-of-racing Dorna handicap with 4 x kg’s of ballast upsetting the chassis balance & causing front & rear “pattering & chatter” & rear “pumping” – all exacerbated by the new Bridgestone Type 33 that have affected the Honda’s far worse than anyone else. Ask yourself too – how is Pedrosa travelling? 14 points adrift of “fader” Stoner – that’s where - then its daylight from the 3 x Aliens back. Rossi? Back in 6th on 58 – just half of “fader” Stoner’s points... Stoner knows that if & when HRC can sort the 2012 chassis & tyre issues out –he’s right back in it again - no doubt & no wonder he said post-Brit GP that he is “not concerned” - I believe him, as do hundreds of thousands of others – why can’t you?
Nah - better to keep right on slinging the same old, boring mud, casting unfounded aspersions & suspicions – and ALL because you WANT IT TO BE TRUE – and couldn’t accept reality if it jumped up and bit you right on the arse & the left nut.
When you all queue to post, riposte & abuse me for telling the truth –as usual – please note that I am a New Zealander this time – and NOT an Australian. It seems most dickheads don’t know the geographical & cultural difference. Merely using the Zombie Rossi fan-till-death & Anti-Christ, Casey Stoner’s name - invokes a venomous & seemingly automatic anti-Australian response which is most vexing & unfair to those quite uninvolved.
