Ive read some of the views on the Stoner issue. I am not a big fan of him. Mainly because he does come across as a moaner to me. Although, I "Think" he has improved abit this year. It could be because he is doing better than last year or because he feels more supported from Honda. He does seem happier this year.
I do think he deserves abit of respect for the fact that he did win a title on the Duke and for what he has done this year.
However, like someone else said, I also prefer abit more excitment, and I think Rossi manages that, what with the mind games, his talent and how he celebrates a win. I also think he is good at admitting when he has done wrong. It is Rossi that got me interested in Motogp when he was in the first year with the 500 Honda.
just my humble opinion.
