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...

Well Rossi may have not achieved much with the Duke like Stoner and he did whinge a bit.  But at the end of the day he didn't throw in the towel saying "I don't like it anymore" did he?  I hope next year will bring some much needed fireworks to moto gp as its becoming a bit predictable of late.

Cal for the red and whites!

While I've never had the opportunity to hear the smack talk in the garage area, we most certainly KNOW it goes on, clearly recalling Sito Pons talking dirt about Nicky Hayden not being able to set up a bike, while his boy Pedrosa continues without a Premiere class championship. People forget how cruel Rossi and his team were to Sete Gibernau, and we know the old saying: What goes around comes around, so maybe Mr. Bitchen #46 is getting what he deserves. As for Stoner calling it quits, again, people have short memories. Casey wants to have a family, and he was deeply affected by the deaths of both Simoncelli and Tomizawa and with Michelin out of the tire development and racing biz, the grip choices have been greatly limited. Further, Stoner harbors some serious disgust with the sanctioning body. It will be VERY interesting to hear what he reveals once he’s out of Moto GP.

Mmmm, I haven't really heard much moaning from Rossi, only frustration from Ducati team who doesn't want to change. Yet over in the orange corner, more moaning, even though he is on the best bike. What a twat!!!

Casey has plenty of friends and fans,

but  Rossi isn't one of them, so why shouldn't he give a brutally honest opinion of the situation?

And one of the reasons that Casey is retiring is because the cult of personality is taking over MotoGP, for which Valentino and his one-eyed fans are the chief culprits.  I blame social media for dumbing down the world and treating the puerile opinions of the masses as if they were intelligent comment.

"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."

Anyway - we should poll the current MotoGP field with the question - "Who do you respect more - Casey or Valentino?"   The answers would be very telling .....

Casey Leaving Ducati

But didnt Casey leave Ducati knowing that it would be hard for him to win on the red bike, he must have seen that the Honda for the following season was going to out class the bike he was riding?

Rossi has just done the same, got himself a competative ride, simple as that.

Man The F&%k Up!

It's a real shame that Casey's come out with these kinda comments, it doesn't serve any purpose! Is this what Marco paid the ultimate price for?  Boring races with little or no entertainment, not to mention no racing. Been a motorsport fan for decades, seen them all come and go. Casey who? Oh yeah the whinging aussie, what a way to be remebered. ALL of you man the f*%k up and get on with the job, give us some racing and something to feel good about or might as well go and watch golf!!!!
