Looks like BULLSHIT to me.....Not Good For the sport....Thought he had surgery over the last problem w/his knee? ....The interview is at the end... from Bobby M at motodrive
He certainly didn't have knee reconstruction back in July after he dislocated his knee at Washougal. He never would have attempted to ride the US Open because the ACL graft wouldn't have had time to heal. I think he tore the ACL in July and elected to simply scope the knee to remove some torn meniscus and rehab to strengthen the knee without ACL reconstruction. Been there, done that with similar results to Bubba, more dislocated knees.
I did the same thing but with my shoulder and samething is starting to happen again
There's plenty of racing going on without him. Find someone (else) to cheer for.

BS? kind of like when Reed supposedly tore his shoulder to pieces just prior to Daytona but somehow managed to finish 3rd.. with a third degree seperation? So suddenly the cry-baby is superhuman? C'mon. Not sure why people dont believe Stewart but I think Camp is right.
Cam could be right,but at that level why **** around with a injury like that and not have it repaired correctly the first time???I`m not a big Bubba fan anyway just seems odd to throw away the whole SX season when he had plenty of time to get his knee fixed properly after the first injury during the outdoor season................
There are many reasons. Could be dr's advice, could be advice of some sort. Personally I understand having the choice and I would have taken the same path cause surgery has never worked well for me. Just saynOriginally Posted by Piper

According to what I've read Stewart hurt himself on the triple step-on section right after the finish line at A2. While it didn't look big on TV you're jumping onto a nearly 6ft tabletop from a nothing roller in probably 3rd or 4th gear. Coming up on the face of that is enough to send some pretty massive shock through your knees, and the eye-witnesses I've heard from said you could feel his impact against the face in the seats of the stadium. I've been riding with a similar knee injury for a couple years now, and I let it heal normally like James tried. As long as you're smooth and careful everything is a-ok. There's no pain, knee feels totally solid. But the instant you twist it around or send a hit like that through it, the knee gets extremely sore and hurts to even put it against the shroud.
I know everyone is down on him about not getting surgery right away, but I can see his side in this. I'm sure his knee felt good even after just a couple weeks, otherwise he wouldn't have tried the US Open. And he probably didn't want to jeopardize his chances at even being able to race the first several rounds of the SX series by doing major surgery on a part of his body that felt health and strong. Obviously it all backfired on him and he's screwed now anyway, but it was a risk I probably would have taken in his shoes too.
I was right there literally..... watching him on the triple step-on to a table top, and his near crash was CRAZY-SCARY as hell, still scratching my head as to how he some how didn't eject off the bike HARD CORE. I am not real big on all the speculations cuz Stewart is the only one that knows - makes his own decisions, and is entitled to make his own decision without oweing anyone anything....... BUT, I will say that his near crash looked VERY PAINFUL and wether or not his knee was already giving him problems.......that crash definitely hurt and could have added to the pain, theres no way in hell it couldn't. He cased HARD-CORE to a complete stop, about like you or I being thrown straight into a brick wall. Everyone around was spooked. It Hurt, I cringed like a baby!

Thats because you are a baby, Shandra! As anyone knows who has had serious knee problems (me included) You never get back to where you were before your injury. You can get close but once you get cut, it just does not happen. Stewarts condition however bad it may be, has a major impact on his sponsors (ie. Kawi sales, etc, etc) and his future. So bet your bottom dollar boys he aint faking nothing and there were some serious phone calls that went out from the Kawasaki pits that night before he did the interview. In days past guy's just rode through the pain, but in the old days factory riders did'nt make 3 million dollar salary's. From my opinion, sorry he's hurt, glad he's out! now there's a chance for 2 or 3 other guys to make their mark; and not just a runaway for the championship.
