"Why do I dislike Casey? Could be entirely unreasonable, but like many, I've seen and heard his complaining about anything and everything."
Oh, it's unreasonable, but at least that's in the back of your mind.
"It just seems to me that when you're paid boat-loads of money to do something that you happen to be exceptional at, a little more thinking how lucky you are is appropriate."
So Rossi, who has constantly complained and blamed the Ducati, who has attacked Ducati like Stoner never did, who is being paid much more than Casey ever was, who has a level of support that Casey never got, and only had to endure it for half as long is ... okay?
"Cal, on the other hand, seems to be honest, is grasping the opportunity he's earned, and just gets on with it."
Oh really? You don't think his two seperate dummy-spits this weekend are getting on with it? We're talking verbal abuse of other riders (twice) on a new level for MotoGP. Bizarre. He was complaining about not getting new brakes. He was complaining that Dovi's bike was faster on the straights. But that's just getting on with it? Bullshit.
Bob may have been colourful about his apprasial, but he's right. You like to think you're on some higher moral ground but, your attitude to Casey is unreasonable. Don't expect others to entertain that without having a crack.
