Good ol DW.

Yep! I was going to mention the same thing. "What is the incentive?" was the question he presented.

There was some other pre-race chatter by the FOX talking heads about competition and I think they know that the sport is lacking the spark it used to have and the popularity is starting to fizzle unless something is done. Exactly what we've been saying here the past couple of months. Booooooring.

DW was talking? Oh yeah, he's the reason I have the TV on mute when I watch a race. He might have been a good driver, but I can't stand listening to him. He can join in any intelligent conversation and cause it to lose 100 IQ points. He makes me feel dumber just watching the race! I can't wait untill ESPN gets the races and won't have him on.

By the way, I do like Larry Mac and Mike Joy, they do a very good job.

I happen to like DW and some of his comments. I would much rather listen to this crew than the guys who broadcast the final third of the season. At least the guys on Fox have experience in the sport, and know what they are talking about.

I was suprised to hear DW's rant. Lately NASCAR has discouraged that kinda talk. I agreed with him!

IMO, the whole crew on Fox is way better than that "other" crew.

The funny thing about his "rant" is it is all true.

Nascar for sometime has missed the bumping and banging. There was a long time when people would go to some race's just to see the big one,the way they have it now with the cot (pos) there is no one willing to take the chance of beating the car up because of fact it will ruin your chance at finishing.

We all talked about the different fines that where handed out a couple of years ago with some of the crew chiefs trying to get around the rules,I can't remeber a car even failing pre or post race inspections the last two years, it is a joke that they want them all to run the same.

Big brother is watching and has a heavy hand the problem is the heavy hand is pushing alot of the fans out the door.

So is big sponsor. Do you want to sign on for a season of sponsorship and your driver gets parked for a week? The "passion" left when the sponsors started calling pretty much all of the shots.

Just one mans opinion.

I've been watchin since the mid 80s when espn starting televising it evey week and nascar started to grow and grow fast

it was RACIN money wasnt such a factor I remember DW callin goeff bodine a little turd 2 weeks later mikey reached and punched lake speed i could go on and on rusty and dale fighten no fines or lose of points back then probably just boosted the rating lol

i think about the time the ole man got killed nascar was peaking

stayed there for a bit but has equalized and ole guys like me will keep watchin cuz thats what we do watch and b----h a bit as does everyone from what i hear and read lol

just dont have the charchacters anymore

harvick kinda mellowed after being threathen in the big truck bush probably leaves so quick cuz he doesnt want to get fined or lose points they say nothing stays the same

but i think alittle of back in the day would be good here

NASCAR started going down hill once they started limiting rear-end gear ratios and everything else. The new car is a tank and can take a beating so thing are out of the driver and crews hands now. Every time things get strung out they call a "debris caution" for a piece of tape on the track instead of letting the race play out.

It used to be fun watching the teams push the limits of their engines and cars. It was fun to see some team trying a new engine/gear combo that turned 10,000RPM only to have it blow up. Now it is like IROC used to be. They are given the same car and drivetrain and the engineering and creativity have been taken away.

That was my most memorable part of that race: The Pit Crew sitting on the wall as (this guy you're referring to) drives by. The front tire guy holds up the lug nut like, "Hey, don't you want this?" laughlaugh

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
