You provide a constant invitation to mix metaphors wosi. One trick pony, clutching at straws, re-clutching already broken straws, last straw are some which immediately spring to mind in regard to your input in recent threads.
How is it that stoner on the terrible gp09 for which he was the only midwife still managed a faster lap in winning at qatar in 2009 than rossi did when winning on a yamaha with 12 months more amazing yamaha development at qatar in 2010, apart from postremo applying to comparisons which favour riders you don't like but not to comparisons which favour riders you do like.? How did Stoner despite his terrible fear of rossi and complete loss of bottle after laguna seca 2008 manage to win the wet/dry mugello race by the unfair expedient of making up 10 or more seconds on lorenzo and rossi in the 2 or 3 lap changeover period when conditions were at their most treacherous?.
Do you think it is possible that some of the increase in speed in 2011 could have been due to stoner getting on a factory hrc bike, given that he was immediately faster than dani pedrosa in the 2010 post-season test, hampered by lack of familiarity with the bike though he obviously must have been by your previous argument?
Given your certainty in making clinical diagnoses on Stoner via race broadcasts, am I to assume that your recent references to doc martens are to your medical expertise rather than to items of footwear?
I would say there is fairly good evidence that Mr Stoner does not like Mr Rossi, in which case I guess rossi has gotten under his skin. Mr Rossi would appear to entirely reciprocate the dislike, suggesting Stoner has gotten under his skin. But given your constant references to him even in his retirement stoner would appear to have gotten under your skin most of all.
