I Love Rossi/I Hate Casey...no, Iove Casey...erm...not I hate Casey, er....
Casey and Rossi on the same page?
Why not? With due respect to Lorenzo, I think both of them were ahead of the pack.
Casey was pretty well unbeatable on the Honda in 2011, and had the tyre chatter issue been sorted out earlier this year, who knows where he or Pedrosa would have finished. Maybe even a first and second? He seemed to be just that bit faster than anyone else.
As for Rossi, his wins and championships speak for themselves, and he was certainly ahead of the rest up to the Lorenzo and Stoner/Honda era.
I think they are pretty close in may ways. I wish Casey had dumped the Ducati earlier, as I think he would've added at least one other world title if he had been riding a Honda or Yamaha, and I wish Rossi hadn't gone to Ducati, as he was still at the height of his powers, albeit facing very fast new blood in Lorenzo.
But, it is what it is. From your disparaging comments about 'moaner' (yeah, I think he whined too much as well, but none of us are perfect), I think you're just another one of the 'love rossi/hate stoner' (swap where applicable) brigade.
In other words, a bit of a chump.
