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.

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.

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?

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!!!

To sickleguy, yes since FOX bought out The Speed Channel and made it "speed" it has become a nascar driven channel. I miss the great coverage of the bikes, formula one and especially world rally car.

With the betting logic, then anyone that smoked, drank, cheated on the wife, got in a fist fight, or broke any law ever can not get in the hall. This is a total joke. But then again baseball has become a total joke.

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”.

This was GREAT. It is old time hockey. Fightting is allowed, because it has been a part of the game forever AND the fans cant easily get involved. Does anyone remember the phily fan that took on tie domi when he was in the sin bin? Has that guy came out of the coma yet? I would pick a fight with an NFL player before a NHL player. Especially one of the enforcers.
