If tony wins?

Wed Oct 26, 2011 6:53 pm

Ok so lets face it, Not alot of us like the chase. We all have said that its not fair or something along those lines. Theres the first 26 races, then last 10 for the chase, And how JJ's dominated in the last 5 years. I getting at this. tony hasn't done crap the first 26 races, but so far the last stretch here he has done great. So if he Wins the championship, will you all dog him like you have Jimmie the past 5 years? Saying that the chase isnt fair? Or will be hypocrits?

well I dont dog on Jimmy for winning 5 championships, but I still think the Chase is a joke.
So I wont dog Tony for winning it either, but I will still think of the Chase as a joke.
If Ryan wins a Chase Championship, I will be happy for him since I am a fan of his, but I still dont rank any Chase Championship on the same level as the one Kenseth last won. The Chase is a rediculous concept. Actually all it is. Is a gimmick to frabricate a close Championship battle at the seasons end. (which often backfires)

Tony has a championship in the current format.
No sense "doggin" him for a 2nd in this format.
Figured you knew that.

I think the 5 championships are irrelevant whether you like or dislike JJ. Most people pick a driver and stick with them through it all. Not every driver has won a championship but people still support them, Mark Martin for example. I think people would feel the same way towards JJ even if he didn't have the 5 trophys.

Totally agree......Tony is the reason i started watching Nascar....a coworker was a big fan so i tuned in to see the hoopla.....watched him on the track and was hooked...and that was back in '07...i wasnt impressed w/ JJ then and still aint...has nothing to to do w/ his achievements or failures...the fact he has won 5 and the media shoves him down our throats is the hard part.....i would feel the same no matter who it was...cept Tony...obvious reasons of course....I like several diff drivers for diff reasons....not just for their ability on the track but some personal reasons....its not secret i like MTX, Marcos Ambrose and Bobby Labonte....just something clicks w/ me w/ them....i dont like JPM, the Busch bros...even tho i do respect Kyles driving....i dont like him on a personal level...im on the fence bout a few others...JJ Yeley is another fave of mine...he is just a nice guy and a #### of a dirt racer....Not a fan of the current pts system but its there for now and we just have to deal w/ it.....coulda woulda shoulda....we can disect it all day...but this is what it is...just that simple....

Using terms as "every one" is where you are mistaken. Yes there are many who do, but it is not everyone.

I just do not click with JJ, I think it has to do with the fact that he tried to portray himself as the clean cut guy for PR reasons, but in reality can party with the best of them(case in point breaking elevator at Tony's during a party and creating stair surfing at same party while blitz).

Which driver your follow or support is a personal thing and as a friend said how can you be such a Smoke fan and then have also have Bobby LaBonte and Matt Kenseth as faves. I just like them but I have been a Tony fan since open wheel days.

Tony is the only and will likely be the only Chase and Non-Chase champion. Enough said.

Kenseth is Lurking, so there might be two.

I don't like the chase period though this is the second year in a row excitement has been created. Tony has won under the old format unlike Johnson. And he has won under the chase format already. It would be another title.

I doubt if Jimmie is holding his breath because he may not be liked by everybody. He is a race car champion just like several others but just so happened to make them all in a row. Good for him. For years I thought no one was going to get Jeff Gordon out of the winning circle but time catches up with everyone as pit crews and crew chiefs learned more than they ever had. It's a job for some and entertainment for the rest of us. Lets take the best part of NASCAR and enjoy it. It may not be around forever.
