Money make the world go around, what other option did he have a factory ride with a mega purse or a budget hit team with second rate gear.

Is he staying..?

Apparently..Cal still has until Thusday to make his mind up about continuing next year with Ducati, and a last-minute change of heart is NOT being ruled out by the respected Speedweek.

Crutchlow on a Honda at LCR could yet be an option..

Love to see him on a works RCV..I reckon he'd do well.

Cal on an "onda" yer avin a laugh

I somehow doubt that Honda would have Cal anywhere near one of their bikes, it could impact badly on their reputation.

He has an option to stay at Ducati, I suspect thats ALL he has ! 

It will be interesting to see how Ducati react when he says to the press that he is officially staying. I hope both of them can then sort themselves out and move forward for the rest of 2014 and into 2015.

Cal should take a leaf out of Michael Schumacher's book on how to work with Italians and win a Wolrd chamionship. Stoner did it, Hayden did it,  good old Paul Smart even won for them. I really hope Cal can do it also.

Who knows? Wages over results? It’s a tricky one.
His bank manager thinks it’s a good decision because he’s earning more there than he would likely be offered anywhere else I reckon.
His opportunity to be a regular podium finisher dropped off (maybe forever?) when he left Tech3.
The horse has bolted now as far as getting adulation for ‘doing a Stoner’ win a dry race on the Desmo. Probably the last time someone realistically had the chance was Vale, and he couldn’t do it in comparable spec. As time has gone by these past few seasons everything within Ducati has changed; different owners, different designers and engineers, different test riders, new rules and regs for open class, new soft tyre, revised fuel limits.
This bike will be better than the Suzuki (for a while at least) which was realistically maybe his other option. And he will have some inside information about what Gigi has in mind for the all new Ducati.
I reckon he's made the best choice for him at this time.

Yes, I appreciate what you are saying ow0, and I agree that it was "announced'  a few minutes/hours after Dovi, but, he has until tomorrow(sic)  to change his mind! I believe. We wait and see, you know how fickle this business may be at times ;-)  and lets face it, you cannot believe a word anyone says these days, its all supposition on here of course, what the F**k do we know LOL its all a bt of fun guessing really, if anyone takes these pages seriously then they are indeed or should be on another planet
