Like you, we're not about to change who we are and shouldn't be expected to. Get over it, there's more to life than this petty crap that keeps going back and forth. You can say what you want but so can we. You can say she's the second coming but we can say she isn't. I'm sure that there's some driver out there that has inspired someone at one time or another. Good for all of them. I'm just sorry that she's the rallying point for the young women out there. She never earned her right to be in the Cup series but I'll applaud any young woman out there that earns her way up without selling herself. And sorry, but there's a word for women who do that.

We all think we're right so please try to accept the reality of that. No one is going to win here so if you can't move on, you've lost one of the most important lessons of life.

you know Simona was at some school talking to girls about how they could do anything they wanted (be a race car driver Engineer or whatever) & that their dress size shouldn't matter. When I saw that, I gained even more respect for her. She was actually out there talking to girls at the impressionable age. Maybe keeping some that aren't so small Self esteem up.

Re: Can we talk?

Yes Rochelle ... we know by now ... and if we should happen to forget, I'm sure you'll post another reminder, telling people you don't care. We get it. We've heard you 1 million times already. Question for you tho ... if you don't care so much... why even comment? Is the fact that you don't care, relevant to someone who does? ? Doubt it.

In your above post - you're telling everyone what to do. In my post, I asked. I asked nicely. I said 'please & thank you" as a show of respect to the members. I don't bark out orders to be followed by minions. Please....

I never said anyone could not say anything. I respectively asked a few members to please, if they can restrain themselves... then please do. For them, the high road - for the Danica fans, a space to breathe without having to defend her, our idea's or posts.

Show me, tell me where is the harm in that?

Schmoopy asked the only good question and to that the question, the answer is - anyone can post what they want. All I was simply asking was ... do some people HAVE TO pop EVERY balloon they come across?

I can't stand Brian Vickers,... altho when he won and people were happy for him here... I LET them be ... without my snarky comments. WHY ruin someone's enjoyment? That's the part I just don't get about most or some people ... and others... I see clearly as "balloon poppers." I believe these would be the folks to whom Racer 1 speaks of and to. ( Just guessing )

Thanks Rulez for at least hearing & understanding where I'm coming from. It's a sad day when someone can't post something because they know it will torn part. I'm sorry to know you ( and possibly others ) feel that way ... and that it has become that way. :-( Sad day. :-(

All I can do is HOPE an SHR statement, like was made on Facebook, comes around here.
Smoke 'em if ya got 'em!

Re: Can we talk?

I had written a huge post in this thread one night, but then, like smokerulez, I figured, what's the point? I did address a little of it in the Nascar.com thread.

People who want to continue to bash her with insults, rather than facts about her performance, are basically trolls in a forum. It's the lowest kind of postings imo. They constantly try to negate anything positive that anyone has to say about Danica.
We get it...you don't like her. And I'm pretty sure it's just because she uses her looks. If she was butt-ugly, you wouldn't care, nor comment, on her performances. When people comment on how she uses her looks to get ahead, well it pretty much verifies it. I say, if ya' got it, use it. Got to make that cash and only look out for #1. (That would be yourself) Forget the haters, 'cause they'll always be there.

Sorry Rochelle, but the only petty crap is really the stuff that is said negatively about her, with bias. And it's so prevalent, that there's no wonder her fans come in and say "Hi," then they leave as quickly as they came. They just want a place they can converse with like-minded supporters. Yet when they try, they're usually greeted w/ insults about her. If that wasn't the case, her fans would be in here in great numbers, thus adding to the forum as a whole.
People who are supportive and positive are NOT petty...they're fans. There's a difference in the 2.
Carry on...

Re: Can we talk?

I want to respect her. It just seems that she isn't trying. But I can tell you that when your boss expects little out of you (he said all he expects is a top 25) you are going to give just a little.

Re: Can we talk?

its funny how people wanna sit here and JUDGE other for talkin about danica, look at all the petty crap i read about JJ, you would think he was the only car on the track yesterday, if we are going to hold fast to the rule of not bashing danica, then guess what, no bashing others drivers, it makes ya'll sound like hypocrites "cant touch danica cause she is under the SHR blanket." get over yourselves sound like fools, yea im a fool too, im so sick of this high and mighty crap that people wanna trash other drivers but when it comes to SHR, no one can utter a bad word, TOO BAD! i came here a ryan, and i am a jimmie johnson fan, and if none of you like it, hahaha well i know some of you dont like, oh well such is life :P :P :P :P :P :P

those comments come to you compliments of the bill of rights, which affords me and others to speak our minds whether you like it or not. also here is another great thing that SHR offers, its called a foe list, so you can block people you dont like, rochelle is good people............ anyone jumps on her, your gonna deal with me

Re: Can we talk?

Those who confuse sports talk with hating should have the privilage of internet usge removed from their life. Just because someone doesn't think someone else is a good athlete, doesn't make them a "hater"...it's just an opinion.

Those who confuse opinions with facts, should also have the privilage of the internet removed from their life.

Those who position themselves to be in/ start/ feed drama should also have their internet removed from their life. It's as old as....well you know......

Hi Jamo haven't seen much of your posting. I miss your humor. Hope you and the family are doing fine.


I've been doin good. Family is doing great, and obviously keeping me BIZZY. I miss having fun on here, and only have time to visit the site once a week, or so. I hope your Michigan summer is as wonderful as it has ever been. That's a beautiful state, and wish I could go back someday. I loved the Michigan summers I got to spend up there.
