The respect post was 'odd' was it Nostro?..fair enough pal but as a response to BBB it was in context, unlike Birt on Stoner above.
The comment was my take on where Stoners problems started..him feeling that he was not shown enough respect winning in 2007.
It underpins everything that he's said or done since and is the cornerstone for fans such as yourself and Aquarius who think your crusade against the yellow is justified because of it..even when it's pointed out the context you have taken it in is pretty much baseless in general, coming from Rossi/Burgess.
To be fair..many #46ers have run with it and perpetuated the wind up, which seems to roll and make Casey spout even more flummoxing, contradictory bollocks than before, which the #27ers go into meltdown trying to defend. haha..it's funny as fcuk.
The problem for you me owd mate..is it has affected Stoner to the degree he's quitting. Ah well..If you can't hack it, pack it.
It is sad he won't be racing next year but, I don't have much sympathy as he could have diffused the situation any time he liked. This is why I say he picked a fight he had no chance of winning..given Rossi's popularity.
His racing ability when he's on song is a force of nature, this is not in question. It's the way he handles himself and the spotlight and how that has been detrimental to the above that is.
Also..a few lucid pills washed down with a cup of comprehension wouldn't go amiss your end by the sound either..
I fail to see the double standards you mention and as I've said before, please don't confuse a certain empathy with Stoner as wosi burning his frilly yellow underwear. You should know better than to suggest that by now.
