ok mario, we get it...
...you hate Casey Stoner. That's your opinion; you are entitled to it. There are riders out there that I'm not so fond of, either, but I do not belittle them or their accomplishments because I still respect what they are doing. Granted, that sentiment requires a certain level of maturity.
Stoner's career has not been "too short." Obviously, he is leaving the sport at the peak of his talents, and I (and others) would like to see him stay, but you have to remember his entire youth was spent in a caravan chasing MotoGP glory. If he is ready to give it up, that's his business. There is life beyond motorcycle racing.
The three greatest riders of all-time are Hailwood, Agostini and Rossi, in no particular order (Doohan's gotta be right there, too). Stoner is level with Mike the Bike in terms of premier class victories. Ago himself has directly compared Stoner to Hailwood. And, forgive me Nicky, but Stoner was the first to decisively dethrone and consistently beat Valentino Rossi, everybody's favorite GOAT, while on the very machine that has brought The Doctor's career to an all-time low. These accomplishments entitle Stoner to, at the very least, be considered in the all-time top ten. This, of course, is all my opinion; I am entitled to it.
Do you know what isn't an opinion? Right now in 2012, Casey Stoner, the reigning MotoGP world champ, is faster than Rossi. That is an indisputable fact.
