"well then.....if that's the case, why even give enough of a sh^t to even bother mentioning it?-------------------------------------------------------------"
I mention it as Iam allowed my opinion just like you are. The difference is, I know mine is just an opinion and wont change anything, where some of you act like your God almighty telling other posters what to do and being disrespectfull. Apparently there isnt any moderaters here or certain posters and threads would be deleted.
I was watching auto racing long ago probably before some of you here were born, open wheel and nascar. I watched the great legends like the Mario Andretti's, Unsers, Foyts, Dale Earnhart, Richard Petty and most others now in the hall of fame--lets say the real nascar back then where drivers earned their spots.
Nascar has become a money first series like most everything nowdays and I understand that it takes money and a good sponsor to get a ride nowdays more then ever. However, buying points from another team, whereby any driver, Danica included, is automatically gauranteed a spot where a better more qualified driver trying to live their dream/support their family etc may be knocked out of the race because of that. Yes--I know it has gone on for some time but I dont have to like it.
Danica says she wants to be respected as a driver, but apparently she isnt aware by getting in a race other then actually qualifying and earning it, will only give her haters, critics and even some fans not sure what to think of her yet, more ammunition to use against her. Yes--I know its a SHR decision but still-- she is the one who has to live with it and suffer the consequences-- good or bad.
See this guys--as an avid fan of hers I dont always take her side, its called being a realistic fan and not a fanatical one where she can do no wrong, something some of you could learn from.
Bottom line--if you dont like my opinions, then click off and dont read them or just GO AWAY untill you grow up and realise we all have our opinions. The difference is I dont rant continually every day about "Nothing" like some here where it makes NO sense and it changes "nothing"--GET IT.
