Title: a real champion?
Post by: sally on February 10, 2004, 06:51:16 PM
After listening to Brian France in IWC Monday night, I think he's the one that needs to be "educated" about racing.  I know all he thinks about is the bottom line, and it shows.  I don't see anything so wonderful about giving a driver who is in 8th place, 500 points out of first after Richmond, and "giving him a chance" to win the title.  I will never feel he earned the title if it hadn't been for the "gimmick" of eliminating the points difference.  And I'll feel that way even if my favorite driver "wins" the title.

I couldn't agree with you more, Sally!  In an article today by Lee Spencer at Fox Sports, she quotes Brian France as saying the following:  "Our goal is to create more interest in the sport," France says. "Our goal is to make racing better. Our goal is to get more drivers a championship."

GET more drivers a championship????  Not let them earn a championship, but GET them one.  How sad is that?

And after watching DW on Trackside and Buddy Baker on Wind Tunnel last night apparently we aren't the only ones.  They both are against it.  And I think the chance for people out of the top 10 are going to be seriously gypped out of many$$$ due to the fact that although 11th will pay a bonus I just don't think someone who could have advanced even down to 8th or 9th are being treated fairly $$$ wise.  It stinks!  :evil:

This proves my point... NASCAR knows who will win the race as soon as the green flag drops.  It's all staged.  

Can we get back to talking about erectile dysfunction now?   :wink:

I have wondered how Mark Martin explained what viagra is to his son several years ago when they became his sponsor.  And now I wonder how many parents are having problems explaining not only what viagra is supposed to do but having also to explain cialis and viatra.  Can someone explain that to me?  :oops:
On a serious note, I really don't think Nascar knows who is going to win and they are setting the odds in their favor for their favorites.

Those ads don't bother me. What bothers me is finding out, just now, that all I had to do in high school to have sex would have been to send a girl a Vermont Teddy Bear. I'm so upset I didn't know this vital life fact earlier...

From the number of ads for Levitra, Viagra, and Vermont Teddy Bears, I think it's obvious.  Lots of women at going to be getting teddy bears with permanent erections for Valentine's Day! :twisted:

Sally, you crack me up!  Hope they don't last more than 4 hours or the e.r.'s will be busy!  :twisted:
