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.

Does it really matter what Rowdy says in interviews and to the press??

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.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
