In my opinion you're not putting much effort in to form your own opinions. Think it's more wishful thinking than serious opinion, that Bradl will beat Rossi this year. He couldn't do it last year, ergo he's got no chance this year.


So as he never beat him in his rookie season, Bradl has no chance this season? Rossi back on an M1 appears to have reduced your 'effort' bud. Wishful thinking doesn't come into play, it's my considered opinion.

It'll be an interesting season either way.

Not long to go now, we'll soon see if Rossi is the G.O.A.T. (Generally Of Average Talent) or not.

how long have you known casey stoner, how many beers have you shared, how many times you dropped into his motorhome for a chat, were youat school together? You make nearly all your assumptions based on what other's report about him, and that is biased

Definitely interesting

We'll agree there.

Bradl did superb last year, but it was telling that at the back end of the season he was trying to up his game, and it kind of fell apart, without really threatening the next group.

Rossi? 7 podiums after the leg break on the Yam, two years chasing his tail on the Duke, now back on the Yam.

You think he's going to do worse?

T-minus 9 days.

Going by your statement, no one should making comments on here at all as they'd biased!! Or are you saying you swan around the paddock high-fiving all ya mates before jumping into their motorhome for a chat!??

I take it this is the info you base all your comments on then???

I see the season being dominated by Pedrosa and Lorezo again, with 4 or 5 others taking turns on the last podium.

PC's comment re. Bradl is a fair call. He go onto being even stronger in this second year.

If your going into a new racing series as a complete novice its probably not a good idea to start slagging off the established stars before you have even completed a competative lap. Not only is it a bit thick but its disrespectful.

As Harry Hogge once said...

In that classic film days of thunder, "No, no, he didn't slam you, he didn't bump you, he didn't nudge you... he *rubbed* you. And rubbin, son, is racin'. Think Casey needs take this on board for his new little venture, because he is gonna deal with a lot more than just "rubbin" if he is pissin everyone off before he has even stepped foot in the paddock.

Some say that this man often likes to indulge in an activity called "rubbing" whilst wearing a skimpy orange thong and that he owns a cardboard cut out of Casey Stoner and JLS... All we know is... he is Nostro

'Cowardly & weak'

Good assessment from an established driver like Winterbottom. Stoner enters that sport as a novice, gifted the drive, and he's already bitching, still hasn't got over the move VR46 put on him on the Corkscrew. He carries a grudge on moves and riders he does'nt like, that affected his racing focus and expectations, that's partly the reason why he's sitting in a car, this year.
