Dale Jr. docked 100 points and his crew chief suspended six races

NASCAR continues to lose fans left and right. This is part of it, so is the obvious dirty driving, horrible broadcaster teams, 24/7 over exposure, and simply an inferior product (type of racing). Ticket sales are down and TV ratings are down. They had their day in the sun, but that past and they are on the road downhill.

The 'Next Jeff Gordon' Begins His NASCAR Career

There is no weight limit in nascar. If you watch a F1 race the driver, with his helmet and all his gear he had on in the car are weighed within seconds of parking the cars. As soon as the podium show is over the car is weighed, if you listen to the in car audio you will hear the teams tell the drivers to pick up clag (marbles to nascar folks). This is because the extra pound or two can make the difference in passing the post race inspection. Lewis Hamilton is looking to be a great driver at yet another level, to top one to boot. Having the contract with Ron in his pocket had to take tons of stress off of him as he was coming up. Only time will tell. Remember Jacques VILLENEUVE won the world championship his 2nd year out, it helped that he landed in the top seat in the sport at the time. The same thing is helping Lewis big time. If he was driving a Torro Rosso I am sure he would be totally off the radar at this point.

Mailman coming back for one more delivery:

Say it is so, Joe!

Just because Theisman worked for them for 20 years does not mean he is ready or able to do the top job, MNF. Some people work 20 years in the mail room or just being a desk jockey, this does not mean they are ready for the CEO job. He may have been good at the other jobs he did for ESPN, but that does not mean he was ready or had the skills to do MNF. I think Tony Kornheiser is good in his MNF role, but he is awsome on PTI. As for the injuried retired players someone mentioned before. It is possible to live the rest of your life off the pay these guys get in 1 or 2 seasons and never have to work again, that is, if the money is wisely invested. 5 hummers and all the diamonds and houses and partying, is not forced on them. If they chose to be foolish with the millions they are given to play a game, it is no one elses fault. They need to take resposibility and invest their money wisely. No one needs a 10 million dollar home. If they blow their money, why is it anyone elses fault?

2007 Formula One World Championship preview

Ever since Damon Hill retired, I have been a fanof the sport rather than a driver or team. This looks to be the most wide open, competitive year I have seen in a long time. I can not wait for the race. I hope it comes down to 3 drivers at the last race to decide both championships!!!

C.C. Sabathia looks around Cleveland's clubhouse and sees something missing

justgary said "Losing half of the population as a possible source of talent is bad for the game" Where did you get this insane number from? It just smacked of racism when I read it. In 2005 12.8 of the population in the United States was "Black or African American". 50% of that number would stand to be female and therefore not major candidates for a MLB team. So we are at 6.4% of the population. Actually the number is 97.1 males for every 100 females in 2005, so the number would fall closer to 6%. “Hispanic or Latinos” make up 14.4% of the United States population in 2005 Yes there are MORE of the same race of people he is so upset about having more players in Baseball. How is that 50%??? Source http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0762156.html If you want to talk about minorities, take a look at my “race” American Indian and Alaska Native 1.0%, funny how you don’t hear us calling for 1% of players and owners of all sports be of our “race”.

Martin finds himself odd man out ... again

Let’s At Least concede 6 hours is a big chunk of your Sunday to give to a race. I do not even do that for the Indy 500. I can watch a formula 1 race start to finish in 90 minutes, and if there are any early cautions ETC they shove in their commercial breaks so they can bring you the last 20 minutes or so of the race commercial free. Does NASCAR do that, I told my wife a crash was starting as they cut to commercial Sunday, did they come back, as is their policy? Nope. 5 minutes later you say only the results of the crash.

Sorry but the "debris" flag that seams to come out when someone gets a big lead, for a cotton ball on the track, when they leave broken brake rotors on the track all day, it’s an exaggeration but you should get the point. My wife and son are both huge Jeff Gordon fans, (And is new wife is smokin hot, see the latest issue of stuff mag) but I think they were too lenient on him. I think it would be fun to have a points system for the different rules they brake. And the total of those rules is the number of laps the driver has to sit on pit road at the start of the race before he is allowed to enter the track.

I guess you all can’t read. They came out and admitted they broke their own rule. No danger to the top two? I guess the rest of the drivers don’t count. It would have been ridicules to restart a race already in overtime. That’s the point they could not have. If they would have followed the rules they admitted they didn't, Mark would have won. Tumbling? He got on his roof, slid past the start/finish line. I simply quoted the NASCAR officials. Goddam, when did NASCAR become such a candy ass sport. Yes safety should be first priority, but lets be real, driving 200 mph does carry a degree of danger. If your goal is to make racing as safe as driving on the freeway, it's going to be about as much fun to watch. UM look at Formula 1, they have made MASSIVE efforts to improve driver safety, and they continue to have the highest TV ratings world wide. This proves softy does not hurt TV ratings. But since the top two sports in the world have dismal ratings in America, it stands to reason most American fans need their sports spoon feed to them. Keep the attacks coming guys. I will continue to let the facts speak for me.

http://www.news-record.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070219/NEWSREC0105/702190312 Harvick blew past Kyle Busch in the third turn of the final lap after getting a push from Matt Kenseth at the end of the backstretch. The momentum pushed Harvick's yellow Chevy high into the banking and alongside Martin, who seemed to be on his way to winning the race he has struggled with for his entire career. Martin could have pushed Harvick to the wall in the fourth turn. He could have turned him in the tri-oval. Instead, he seemed to wait for a push from Busch. Busch dropped to the apron entering the chute coming out of 4, bobbled and slammed into Kenseth. Martin never lifted and moved back ahead of Harvick, who had nosed ahead in the seconds earlier. "I thought I would get the push from Busch," Martin said. "I didn't know he wasn't there anymore." Busch disappeared in the smoke just as Harvick pulled alongside Martin. They both waited for the flagman, who leaned over the track and dropped the checkered with the 07 Chevy of Clint Bowyer tumbling and burning into the infield. At that moment, the outcome was in the hands of NASCAR. The message from the control center above the track to the flagman came as the cars reached the line. "Put it out," David Hoots, NASCAR's race director, radioed down. The yellow flag flew after Harvick passed under the flag stand. "When the 07 went sideways on the track, the yellow came out," said NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston. "At that point the 29 was ahead of the 01 and declared the winner." That was a good explanation and all, except that's not what happened. Bowyer was upside down before the leaders took the checkered flag. The caution was thrown after that, technically, and according to NASCAR's own rules, after the race ended. The fact that there was an official margin of victory (.020 second) proves it. There is no margin of victory in a race that ends under caution. And since no caution flew before the end, NASCAR had no official account of the crash. In effect, it never happened. The initial race results showed all the cars involved were running at the end. The entire viewing world saw the 07 burning and tumbling down the tri-oval with a sixth of the field spinning and crashing through the smoke and fire, so NASCAR's reasoning was as brazen as Martin's wasn't. Harvick will go down in history as the winner of the 49th Daytona 500 in part because NASCAR didn't follow the rules and Martin didn't want to cause any more controversy. ONLY IN NASCAR, THIS THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW THE BLEW IT IN THE BIGEST RACE OF THE YEAR “FOR THEM”

Martin finds himself odd man out ... again

“NASCAR announced Thursday that racing back to the caution flag would no longer be permitted. Other parts of the rules change are: Once the yellow flag is waved, all drivers must immediately reduce speed to a "cautious pace" and get in a single-file line behind the leader.” These two statements are in direct conflict with each other. “NASCAR also made a small alteration to its pit road rules. All cars will be required to come on to pit road single-file, and any passing must be made to the right. Passing to the left would result in a penalty of restarting at the end of the longest line for a caution penalty or a pass-through on pit road for a green penalty. “ Well we all watched the M&Ms car pass Kurt Bush on the left Sunday. Opps NASCAR forgot their one of their own rules AGAIN. “Darby said simple track position would determine the scoring order when a yellow is displayed. “ NOT the last scoring loop. I go to tons of racing and was there when Indy became the first track to use them. "We'll review it; we'll make a call on it -- end of story." "It's going to add some more elements that we're going to have to make more judgment calls during the event, but I think we're capable of doing that," Hoots said. Judgment calls cannot be appealed, NASCAR insisted. A call on who was ahead when the caution comes out is a "balls and strikes" call by the control tower, Darby said, and can't be challenged.” There you have it, the new rule is officially, we will decide depending on who is involved and who is in a favorable status with NASCAR. "Balls and strikes" baby, you can’t get any more cut and dry when you are dealing with peoples lives than that!! Did I miss something or did NASCAR not give any penalty to the driver that ran over the crew member of the team in the pit stall in front of him?

"They should have thrown the yellow. Everyone behind that spin had to RACE through it or lose positions when the finish line is in sight. Throw the yellow and they can slow down and go around the trouble rather than mashing the peddle to the floor and hoping not to kill the people you hit on the way to the finish line. I don't care who wins, they were wrong to keep the green out." This is what I have been saying. This is the entire reason they put a stop to racing to the checked flag in the first place. DRIVER SAFTY. And NASCAR threw that out the window last night, and it was just plain wrong!! I have said all along that NASCAR only applies the rules when it befits them. Driver safety is not their interest, money and a “good show” at the cost of the health of the drives is their priority. When they see 60 + cars show up to fill a field of 43 or whatever, they look at the drivers as a disposable commodity.

"My thought process is that if Nascar threw the flag when Kyle Busch spun, odds are, the wreck was just going to keep happening. Then Nascar has to go back to the last scoring loop to see who was where. Where would the cars be placed who wrecked during the caution" NASCAR has real time GPS in each car. It would have been so easy to freeze that data when the crash happened, it would have taken all for one minute to place the cars in their proper finishing spot. i watched the GPS deal on Nascar.com, and it shows the cars clearly, without the smoke blocking the view. NASCAR was again WRONG WRONG WRONG!

This just proves once again that NASCAR can not follow their own rules. The rules clearly state that when a crash happens the field is frozen at that second. It was even mentioned by the broadcast team before the last restart. Their actions caused unnecessary danger for several drivers. What if one of the drivers that were forced to drive top speed to the flag had hit the upside-down car and badly injured the driver. Is this in the sprit of the new safety first NASCAR? I think not. Bad move by NASCAR. Mark Martin, not one of my favorite drivers by a long shot, won that race according to the NASCAR rules.

Dad intervenes during his son's wrestling match.

My brother wrestled for 8 years, 4 high school, 4 college. He wrestled in the OVAC Ohio valley athletic confess, tourney and won it twice; He was honored for that this year of the 20th anniversary. When he wrestled his senior year he finished the last two matches with to cracked ribs. The doctors warned him not to continue. He went out anyway and won both matches in a great deal of pain. He refused to let them tape up the injury, because he did not his opponent to see that and try to take advantage of it. It is part of wrestling, if you see or know you opponent has an injury you go strait for that injury to get an advantage, it is part of the sport. He ended up winning the largest high school wrestling tournament in the nation that day for the second year in a row. In college he wrestled for Mount Union (yes the power house foot ball team in div III, The Purple Raiders With the two longest winning streaks in college football history, 54 & 55 Straight Wins, and div III national Championships in '93 '96 '97 '98 '00 '01 '02 '05 and '06). Anyway he was an OAC champion his sophomore thru senior seasons and an all American in wresting his junior and senior seasons. He wrestled his final 3 matches of the Nation championships his senior year with a badly broken clavicle bone. What I am trying to say is that this is a one on one sport and injuries are VERY common. If his son had a previous injury, he should have warned the coaches, or if he was the coach, he should have done what all coaches are thought to do in these cases. They should ALWAYS have a bath towel taped up into a tube like form. When you see trouble for your wrestler that you do not think he can get out of, you simply throw the towel, so that it hits the ref and the match ends that second. I have seen it done hundreds of times. In fact I wrestled 7 years behind my brother, in the pee wee class, in the same age group as the kids in the video. It was not the sport for me, and I had the towel thrown in more than a few times to save me. No matter what this father’s position was/is, he should be banned for life from that schools home and away events in any sport. He should be charged with assault and battery on the child, and if he touched the other child’s father assault on him as well. If I were the other kid’s father I would file for a restraining order against the father of the other child effectively banning him from entering the child’s school for any reason. I a sure a lawyer would advise him to sue for monetary damages, but I do not think it is warranted in this case, though a jury would more than likely award them some form of economic award. Anger management classes should also be ordered to this father. I am sure many here will strongly oppose me, but I am speaking as someone that has attended literal thousands of these matches, and is a father of a 5 year old son.

The most vocal criticism has come from those affiliated with Ford, which lost driver Dale Jarrett and his UPS sponsorship to Michael Waltrip's startup Toyota team. In a Jan. 17 New York Times report, Ford Racing head Dan Davis called Toyota "predators," claiming he had heard Waltrip signed Jarrett for $20 million, and that another Toyota team, Red Bull, lured engineer John Probst from Ford by doubling or tripling his salary

Doping in Daytona

This is normal for "whitetrashcar". The rules mean even less on the track. The comment on a cheater getting praise for wrecking other drivers on purpose, yes im talking about the late "imbreader" opps I mean "imtimadater". nascar is a total joke. If they would actually enforce the rules evenly, not based on who broke the rule. We did not renew of 16 brickyard tickets. We will spend even more of our time following Fomula 1 and World Rally Car. nascar can learn TONS by watching the governing body of Formula 1 work. They stripped the championship from Micheal Schumacher for "dirty driving" in the final race of the season to keep his points lead. And when another team, Red Bull if I remember right was caught messing with the weight of one of their cars, they had the result of BOTH cars totally removed from the results, PLUS they were not allowed to the next two races. In a sport with only 16 so races and companies putting up money that makes nascar team budgets look like go cart teams budgets, this was a HUGE deal, neddless to say the sponsers and engine manufactures were not happy and took alot of negitive press. But that happens at the apex of motorsport. It costs the same amout to build and lease the engine for one F1 car as it does to run 16 cup cars, and each team is required to put 2 cars on the track. That is 32 cup cars. Try getting sponsor money for 32 cup cars to fit on 2 cars that have to look EXACTLY the same. the 2 cars can not have diferent sponsers on them, BAR tried and was almost thrown out of F1 all together over it. These are the types of lessions Nascar needs to learn, becase I say ALOT of EMPTY SEATS at most every track last year.

Peyton Manning's Monkey Has Died

Peyton deserved the MVP (I voted for him) his stats were - comp/attempts 25/38, yards passing-247, 1 TD passing, 1 INT. The running backs, 191 total yard rushing. In 2002 the great Tom Brady won the Super Bowl MVP with these stats comp/attempts 16 /27, yards passing-145, 1 TD passing, 1 INT. The running backs, 133 total yards rushing. Did Brady deserve this MVP more than Manning’s? Ok Peyton vs all the Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks averages. ATT Manning 38 - Avg 29 Comp Manning 25 - Avg 18 Yards Manning 247 – Avg 266 TD Manning 1 – Avg 2.3 INT Manning 1 – Avg .58 The Chicago kick return game was busted after the 1st kick return they averaged 26.4 Yards including the 92 yard return. They averaged 10 yards per without the 92 yard return, on 6 attempts. Indy averaged 22 yards on 4 attempts. The Colt’s defense held the Bears to 165 yards passing with 2 INT, one for a touchdown, and 111 yards rushing, with 0 rushing TDs. That’s 56 less than their season average. Not bad for the lowest rated defense ever to play in the Super Bowl. The Bears defense gave up 247 yards passing and 191 yards rushing with 1 INT. That’s 144 more than their season average. Not good for the 2nd rated defense. My one complaint was the quality of the HDTV picture. They did a horrible job keeping the rain off the camera lenses. And there was a slight fog on 1 of the camera lens during the entire game. Well and the commercials sucked overall.

Technology Touchdowns

The AC pads are an awesome idea. I did not know the colts were using them. Anything to help the health of the players is a good thing. Like the pill and the new helmet. I was watching the pre game for one of the playoff games, NE I believe, and when the QB put his helmet on he threw the ball a few times and walked over to a guy and patted one side of his helmet and the guy attached what looked like a air pump for a football and pumped it a few times till the QB said ok. I guess it had air bags in it to fit the head better. Also in Indy car racing they have a air bag in the top of the drivers helmet that the rescue teams have a small nitrogen canister that they hook to the helmet and it lifts the helmet off without the possibility of further spinal injury. Something that the NFL should use. I could see it being used allot more in the NFL than it gets used in Indy car.

If you have ever had to sit and listen to him speak for 30 minutes, you would want a frontal lobotomy. I lost count of him saying "you know" somewhere north of 200. He only said it twice last night in the 90 second speech. My issue is with his lack of class. Some people have it and some do not. All you have to do is read peoples views on things. Wal-Mart is a great company. My mother retired from Wal-Mart last year with 1.2 million in stock. Mostly given by the company. When my son was born I worked the overnight shift so I could be with my son while he was awake. If Wal-Mart is so bad, then why do so many Americans shop there?

Venice You are no one to tell me what to do. I never said a word about the Pats fans or organization. I was talking about the Coach ONLY. Look back at the video and you will see that EVERY member of the broadcast team had the EXACT same reaction to the interview as I did. So you should look at the crap you are shoveling. I am an Arizona Cardinals fan since the 1970s. I do not leave my team. We lived in Indy for 10 years and went to countless games. A game in the dome is like watching one in your living room. Perfect lighting, temperature and views from anywhere in the stands. Also keep in mind that the roof is kept up by AIR PRESSURE ONLY. Ask anyone that walks out after a game and is nearly sucked out of the building. It was very cold in Indy yesterday, my brother still lives 10 min from the dome, and he commented on it, Maybe the heat was turned up for the cold, maybe for an advantage, either way, that is why it is called home field advantage. I do not believe the Colts have ever had a home game this late in the season and the temp maybe SOP to keep snow off the roof. You never see any on it when it snows in town. Manning deserves to go to the Super Bowl because he is the best player in the NFL (don’t bother attacking me on this). My point addressed people calling him a cry baby. You need to read and UNDERSTAND before you comment. The Colts line up better against the Bears than they do the Saints. So I was very happy to see the Bears win. Can’t wait for the party!!!

The Pats coach showed what an ahole he is in the post game "interview". Did you see the guys in the studio shake their heads and smirk at his disrespectful attitude? For a guy that has had such success to show so little class in defeat speaks volumes about his character. Everyone from the colts made it a point to say how good the pats played. I can’t remember a coach show so little class after a loss. After the last few years of his team getting away with pass interference on every play against the colts you can’t call it if they do it on EVERY play. I was glad to see Indy over come it last night. Peyton deservers this so much. I have met him several times and he is a class person all around. He talks to people on the street and shops at wal-mart himself. I used to run into him there when we lived in Indy. Not sure if he still does since he got married. People call Peyton a cry baby, when he is just a perfectionist who holds himself up to such a high standard that it is almost impossible to achieve. He is mad at HIMSELF for mistakes. But has been always gracious in defeat. The Pats could learn a lesson in that respect.

Michael Vick Passes the Buck

Vick is a good Running back. But a HORRRIBLE QB. They should move him to RB and let him play the position he is good at. Then get a QB that can THROWN the ball.

The NHL to realign?

I dont care to watch the west coast games. They are on to late at night. So I do not follow the teams at all. Seeing them once in awhile is not as good as watching enemies battle. This only benifits the west coast teams. I do not believe there should be a NHL team in a city were it never snows!

PITG wins slots casino license for North Side of Pittsburgh

After paying for 2 new stadiums the taxpayers are not going to pay for another. The team ca not afford it either. They need to sell the team to a company that will ay for a new stadium. The current location SUCKS. I hate driving to the arena. But that said, it is by far the worst arena in the league. But as soon as the team leaves they will find away to build an arena for another team. Look at Huston, Cleveland ETC in the NFL. The team has a great future. Someone needs to payoff the money owed to Mario and get him out of ownership. I don’t know the ins and outs of the slot deal but some people got their pockets lined to vote the way they did in my eyes.
