Why is RC called the GOAT?

Stewart is faster than RC, how cant you see that? Stewarts connecting rod snapped and locked up the bike, thats how RC passed him.

AMEN.... wow Greatest Of All Time......i dont think so

: I also think Roger Decoster needs to give up " The Man" title because " THE GOAT " IS " THE MAN!!! :excuseme::bonk: Can you hear me now,, Good!!!

BS!

Decoster will always be "The Man".

McGrath will always be "The King".

Carmicheal will always be "The Goat"

and Stewart will be known as "The Hindenburg".

.

IMO i think stewart is faster but has a hard time keeping it on two wheels in the beginning of the season (like supercross). Keep in mind he was still recovering last weekend and still kept up wtih RC.

Anyone can be fast. Being fast and riding in control is another. Ricky can, James cant right now, but he will.

They call me M.O.A.T.

Mintest of all time.

BS!

Decoster will always be "The Man".

McGrath will always be "The King".

Carmicheal will always be "The Goat"

and Stewart will be known as "The Hindenburg".

.

lmao :excuseme:

It was like 4 kicks! :excuseme:

I love that fricken movie...

Just curious????

:excuseme:

Stewart is faster than RC, how cant you see that? Stewarts connecting rod snapped and locked up the bike, thats how RC passed him.

Stewart was a distant second when his connecting rod snapped.... :excuseme:

The fastest guy is the one who crosses the finish line first more often. If Stewart was faster, he'd have more points, and be in first place, right? :excuseme:

And yeah, he was well behind RC when his bike blew up on him. You guys see all that smoke pouring out of his bike? Never seen that before...

The dictionary also says its other meaning is.........

A lecherous man.

Mcgrath was a great Supercross racer, but he never dominated every aspect of the sport....and JS is only as fast as RC when he rides over his head which is why he's been a lot faster to the ground...RC knowS what it takes to win championships...CONSISTENCY....LONG LIVE THE G.O.A.T.

I hope the goat doesnt retire. I think he could win it again next year, or at least make it fun to watch. Goats dont like to retire. Bahh

RC=G.O.A.T. nuff said

Got me... I always figured GSO (greatest so far) might be more appropriate, although still arguable... but maybe someone has a crystal ball that sees the future, that we just don't know about? :excuseme:

RC was ALREADY in 1st when Stewart's bike blew up. Pay attention.

AMEN.... wow Greatest Of All Time......i dont think so

RC was already in 1st when Stewart crashed................pay attention. :excuseme:

actually......RC had already passed stewart at that point.....stewart may be faster.....but until he has as many overall wins as #4...RC will be the GOAT....my guess is it'll never happen....stewart will end up like 199....ending his career early due to injuries...

Just curious????

Give. Opie. Another. Trophy.

I wish there was still a 500cc 2 stroke class. Guys like Johnson, Stanton, Bailey, Ward etc. used to race the big bikes and the little bikes. I wonder if the guys today could even hold onto a 500. Maybe carmichael and windham. I think stewart would really hurt himself. Motocross today isn't like it was back in those days so I don't think you can say carmichael is greater than some of those old guys who rode the 500's. I think jeff ward deserves a lot more credit. I believe he is leading the ama supermoto championship in points right now.

RC has dominated every class he's ran. He even got a perfect season on a 250 smoker against thumpers and followed it up by dominating Everts in Belguim on the same two stroke with Everts on a works big bore. I'll even wager that CR250 was fresh off a swowroom bone stock. :excuseme: Did anyone see him on that jump yesterday with his left foot hanging off the peg? He is the man.Stewart was holding him up which is why Millsaps was gaining on him.
