Couldn't agree with it more if I wrote it myself, except for one thing. He's good, but I'm not sure its a foregone conclusion he'll win a Cup championship. There are lots of guys who are good enough to win one (and he's probably in that group), but to say its a sure thing for anyone is nuts. There are just far too many variables over time.

Even though I compared him with Dale Sr. last week. Dale was much more sly with his arrogance. And yes very much more adult.I defended his driving style last week, and I still do!

But can't defend his middle finger and junior high attitude.

Nascar on the other hand must LOVE IT! This has got to be good for ratings.

Too much whining and overexamining comments in NASCAR. The whole sport is overly sensitive to a fault.

Gary Sheffield says way worse things than Busch and people forget about everything the next week.

The Nascar crowd as a whole needs to toughen up a little bit.

I think I like Rowdy now.

Harvey, I'll just attribute that comment to the fact that you posted it at 1:30 am, and you were overly tired and not thinking clearly. We know you really didn't mean it. Hehe. gringringrin

If you look at the ratio of baseball players to Cup drivers, there are more fans per driver than baseball player. The stupid comments made by baseball players can also be attributed to whatever substance they claim they are not on.grin

I think this was a great article. I don't see anyone throwing punches over what Kyle does. However a time will come when Kyle messes with the wrong driver and he will get punted in to the wall. I think Kyle is a talented driver. It is hard for me to say that for the simple fact is I can't stand the kid. I think his success at a young age has went right to his head. I think his speak before he thinks attitude will get him into enought trouble on the track. I think he is going to get his on the track. Heck maybe Jr paid his driver to wreck him for the Richmond thing. To many people paying to close attention for Jr to do it so why not get him with his nationwide car? Kyle should take his lucky stars that Jr is not like his father. I don't think Dale Sr would have tolerated the Richmond race at all and pay back would come reguardless of the rules and fines. Kyle, enjoy your success as with all streaks they do end. You better hope it is not during the chase! Your day will come!

I highly doubt you will see any so called "payback". Jr knows the difference between intentional and un-intentional, unlike some on this board

He'll have to do it pretty early before the Gibbs cars get too far out front.

You may be right. Jr is such a cleaner racer and also not near the loudmouth that other fool is.

What I see is a very young, extremely talented driver who has yet to learn the word "patience." No doubt this kid can drive the wheels off the car and do it well, but he puts his car/himself in positions that are extremely risky, and in many instances, ends up causing a wreck of some kind.

He definitely does not know while speaking that enough is enough...that is inexperience and immaturity. Not unlike a Kevin Harvick a few years ago, or Kurt Busch for that matter with his friend Jimmy Spencer.

That article, I thought, was about as "spot on" as it could get...

This kid will win a championship someday...he's got more talent on the track than most of the drivers out there right now. He just doesn't have the patience to allow things to come to him, and that is what makes him not championship material yet...

Give him a few years and he'll be on top... Hopefully his mouth will settle down...

Big E and Gordan both slowed down for a while once they had the fear of God put in them. (injured in a bad wreck) His time is coming.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
