Do you think Casey Stoner will come back to motorcycle racing?

I say yes. He's only 27. He's too young. Thoughts?

I say he will take 2 years off, heal up, and come back for a few years and then really be gone.

I hope not. It's terribly disappointing to watch a man win one of the greatest sports in existence & then whine about it. Not having Eore in the paddock, regardless of how fast he is, will lighten the mood a bit. The grid is too small already to have people act like that.

Just my opinion, of course.

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.

Stoner is the best of the best and learned to dislike organized racing. For good reasons. He will not EVER race pro again.

I don't understand if you have read the interviews and all the other write ups that state the FACTS and not just the opinions of others how you can say he is whining. He has been open an honest and simply tells it how it is. He is saying what all the other top riders are thinking but are to scared to express. To the best of my knowledge not ONE other rider in the paddock has come out and put him down for anything he has done or said. The mood in the Motogp paddock doesn't need to be lightened, it needs a kick in the arse.

I think he hates Rossi more than motogp. He really never got over Laguna seca 08 (what a race) and also when the Marshall's helped Rossi back on track but not him.

Eh, why it is I couldn't say. But I watch the coverage an get the rare opportunity to go see a race... watching Stoner race (and win) is a thing of pure awesomeness, until he gets off the bike and opens his mouth. His presence is just poor, and even winning he can find something negative to say. It's draining IMO. Dani Pedrosa is more entertaining pre & post race; that's saying something. Stoner has the ability to win, and he could come back and do so. He is a quitter. I don't like quitters. It's pretty much that simple. Everyone has their own opinions. :)

I don't think he hates Rossi just dislikes a couple of things he has done and said. Without Rossi Stoner wouldn't be as fast as what he is. The Marshall thing, again just tellin It how it is. When you walk around tellin it how it is and others see you as a threat your gunna attract the haters.
