Casey Stoner slams Valentino Rossi’s Yamaha return

Casey Stoner has criticised Valentino Rossi’s swift return to Yamaha after the Italian legend recently confirmed he will quit Ducati after a disastrous two-year stint with the Bologna factory. The 33-year-old has been a shock failure to perform on board a factory Desmosedici and will return to Yamaha next season to partner bitter Spanish rival Jorge Lorenzo. When Rossi arrived at Ducati...

Maybe...

...Rossi's ambition really did outweigh his talent this time. Just saying. ;-)

Here comes the bitterness..

Great bike racers usually get a bit annoying when they hang their leathers up. In Casey's case he is already annoying so we are in for a lot more of this kind of comment. But I don't disagree with him.

Made a comment last year which I think sums up: "Everyone is wokring very hard and trying news ideas and talking to one another, it would go much better if our rider joined in"

A very asstute comment from another Aussie, is this telling you how it is, or is this moaning as well.

Kids you have to realise that your pagen god rossi is more flawed than you would like to admit, he is one of the most egotistical tossers to grace the scene with his presence, oh you think its personality, no its tiresome.

On the "Entertainment" commnet, its no that at all, it is far more important, it is racing.

petty and spiteful

While stoner has every right to be smug...people in glass houses shouldnt throw stones. Yes stoner is the only successful 800 ducati rider a couple of things come to mind why he should keep his trap shut. Firstly his championship year cam when he was enjoying a HUGE engine(20k thats like crt difference) speed advantage and a equally sweet tire performance advantage. Hell mid to back fielder hopkins finished 3rd that year also on bridgestones. Stoner is young...33 year ol rossi doesnt have 4 or 5 years to mess arond trying to get a piece of crap to work. After 07 stoner didnt have great luck either with diminishing results year after year. Granted casey could win on the duke but rossi won 3on the trot with honda and at stoners age had won 5 titles. Stoner only seems to be able to win with a huge performance advantage as last years honda was the best bike...this year its yamaha...and cant seem to be able to defend his crown....chooooooker!! And finally....who gives a crap if rossi can or cant ride the ducati when he can sure as hell ride the yamaha!!!

Possibly the most perfectly tailor-made story this forum has ever seen.

I can't be arsed reading the other posts, sorry, because I can imagine what they say. Great stuff from Casey Stoner and more fuel to keep this particular fire burning long after he's gone.

Erm...

Stevowarrior - "Sad, but it is understandable that he does not want to push limits and that he wants a 'safer' option."

You're saying he's lost it... understandable as you say, happens to some TTers before they retire... not sure you're right tho'.

Hello4646 - "And to be fair lets not forget how Casey slagged off Ducati when he left."

... & to be fairer let's not forget how Rossi slagged off Yamaha as he's recently reminded us so prominently.

1986vfr - "Firstly his championship year cam when he was enjoying a HUGE engine(20k thats like crt difference) speed advantage and a equally sweet tire performance advantage"

Whoa... it gets more every time... please tell me where he was 20k faster... in races it was usually around the 4 to 6 mark that Rossi's enjoying now.

Which bits of case will we all miss

I think , without doubt, we'll all miss the on track battles, but I doubt anyone will miss his bad attitude and constant moaning.
