Seeing as we've got the chair out DF..
Why is it that you object so much to implication that Rossi has affected Stoner? That psychologically, he's been exposed as weak and decided to retire rather than put the record straight?
Does it ring a bell that is perhaps a little too close to home in doohanfanworld? Which I must say, seems to be a rather comfortable place set high in the clouds, no doubt feathered by Mummy & Daddy doohanfan to ensure their little chick-e-dee avoided the darker side of life and it's realities?
You come to MCN with a book full of Latin verbs, looking for easy pickings to entertain yourself and masquerading under the thinest transparent veneer of obective comment, while looking down your nose and calling people stupid?
No..you don't object to that, or poor little Casey Stoners similarly sneering fight to right the perceived wrongs he's been dealt in an attempt to gain the respect he thinks he's due?
If you took those holier-than-thou blinkers off for a minute Pal, you'd see that it's all been one way traffic for the last two years. Rossi has been the butt end of much malicious laughter & shcadenfreude..just ask big brain #1.
Wosi and a few of his ilk have constantly been on the back foot, sheilds raised against the slings & arrows. Nobody has been exalting rossi to the skies because the results haven't been there and, despite what you think you know, we're not that stupid. It has been a defensive campaign with the odd raid under cover of night.
Now your boy has quit in a huff, beaten by his team mate without retaining the title, Valentino is back on a good bike..and you want us to play fair? Hahaha..sorry, it's not sufficiently satisfying.
I told you about having to get down in the gutter, not to take this place too seriously and explained I'd make it a mission to spank your lilly livered sorry arse if you didn't come clean about your humourless fanboy back flipping..and so it comes to pass with your sniveling last post.
I suggest you go and stand in the corner facing the wall and have a good hard think about whether this particular sandpit is too rough for you.
There are a few sites out there that will no doubt suit your long winded verbals and whining disposition a lot better.
