Did anyone catch James say in his TV interview that he has had only 3 concussions?

He lost 6 since his ESPN interview several years ago. Time does wonders. So does bullshit.

Yea.....it's in this video (around the 6:30 mark) the guy said that he has had 7 concussions.

I like James. I have always liked James and I find it hard NOT to cheer for a guy that says, "I will die trying to win."

the problem is he has the wrong goals..he wanted the most race wins not championships...well guess what typically comes with championships, wins. You dont win titles without some wins (exception Ferry)...he wanted to be the fastest racer not the best and that is what he was, not sure he still is or ever will be again. But James certainly was the fastest in the mid 2000's, but the fastest is not always the best. Honestly, he could have been both the fastest and best if he had had the right goals in mind, but he chose the path he took. I feel bad for him, but honestly he brought this on himself with some of his decisions.

Not racing nationals hurt him and kept him from being in that state of mind year round and riding the Yamaha has not helped. Not saying its the bike, but now it is clearly in his mind. Another thing to consider is all the crashes, Jeremy said after a while your start riding scared (after taking so many hits) I think that is where James is (at least a little bit) he's not even the same as last year.

His concussion at the 125 east west shootout counts as 3! He got knocked the fuck out!

For how many years did James try to gap the field at more ludicrous speed than he ever needed to win, only wad himself up while leading? He could have extended his career a lot longer if his people told him to put his ego away and do just enough to win with less risk.

All those needless crashes and concussions are catching up to him now, and it's really sad. I'm a huge fan, but the guy seems to be just s shell of who he used to be...

Didn't he get one just last year at Daytona? So that was his second ever? Don't tell me he didn't cause he could barely hop on his bike after that wreck.....

Depends on what you call a concussion. That's not a black-white definition like a broken arm. Any real hard hit to the head is a "concussion", but he's probably referring to cases where he was knocked completely unconscious for an extended length of time. You see football players get hit in the head and wander around like they don't know where they are, maybe walk off the field to the wrong sideline - that's a concussion, but a mild one. Stewart has had a BUNCH of those. But maybe only 3 times when he was out cold for an extended period of time? That's possible.

In '01, Pastrana had three serious concussions in one year. I think concussions happen more than people realize, but most of them are relatively mild.

This whole thing about his hand sounds fishy. Even Emig sounded confused.. Let me get this right, you broke your hand but you were cleared to race and might be back this weekend and you only learnt your hand was broke when you tried to open a bottle of water? I hope Bubs doesn't recoil into his cave of weirdness and white lies. Doubt JGR boys would let that happen though. Being a #couchpotato might seem like a somewhat attractive proposition compared to attempting to compete with RV though.

Apparently he "barely passed" the baseline test performed at the track.

Heard about the hand yesterday morning.
Kinda ironic same thing with my kid bad crash x-ray and mri on right elbow, it was nasty swelled and bruised. Only large hematoma went down in a few days, went to shoot a basketball and I saw him wince in pain. Back to Ortho and found 2 fractures in opposite wrist he wasn't even aware of.

The story also confused me momentarily, until I considered the source of this confusing/conflicting information and the history of BS surrounding the Stewart camp. At that point everything kind of fell into place and I stopped trying to figure it out.

I love all the message board orthopedics we have here.

haha. Wonder if the lingering injuries will last all summer too? I just hope he doesn't get too weird and go off the radar again. We won't even be able to blame Larry Brookes this time.

Reed would have ridden this weekend, just saying. wink haha

It's amazing how many guys there are on Vital who have never, will never and could never win anything, who want to give advice to a multi-time ama champion. When he starts listening to compu-tards on message boards, then we'll know he's really in trouble.

Concussions...PFFTT!!.....whatever!

Wait.....where am I?...........what day is it? .....and how the hell did I get here?

BTW.....concussions are nothing to play around with and can have serious side affects later in life. BUT.....concussions also affect everyone differently. Depends on who the person is , how much of an impact that certain person can take and recover. Some get their careers ended after one really bad one.....some get 100's of smaller ones ( like football players ).....and do just fine the rest of their life.

Bottom line.......it's up to that certain individual to make the right decision. And only James himself know when it's time to throw in the towel.......personally I don't think he's ready to step away just yet. He still has serious speed and has night where he rides flawless. I gotta say though.....I have never ( in 35 yrs of watching this sport ) seen a guy be able to take the abuse like he has.....and keep going. The dude has heart.....that is for sure!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

It's obvious he can be honest with himself, why would he be honest with the public?

He listened to the vital tards when they posted encouragement support and well wishes.

Even wrote them back

still amazed that you guys are believing someone other than james stewart. when he says something, its not true. but when someone says something about him, its automatically true.
