Re: Disgusting display at Talladega!!!

Crazy Earnhardt fans. I don't like the Jeffrosexual, but geesh, people...get over it...he's gone. Ol' Dale won most of his races dirty by shoving people into walls. None of today's drivers: Gordon, Stewart even drunken Michael Waltrip are anywhere near as dirty as Earnhardt was. I can't stand Gordon, but he's won at every level of racing since he was a kid, he does have talent underneath that hair gel.

I was a BIG Bill Elliott fan back in the day...there's a classy driver (also holds the record for fastest lap ever @ 212.8 MPH and it will stand forever because of restrictor plates).

I can't change my opinions about someone just because they die...it would be dishonest.

I think they should take the restricter plates off for Talledega...they don't hit the brakes there anyway.

Of course. I don't know what your programming is on the east coast anymore! haha.
Honestly, I like ESPN 2, it has good programming...but do me a favor, instead of playing some obscure baseball games, or the Yankees, play more Red Sox games. I've also seen them televise the Braves when they are already on TBS.

Re: Disgusting display at Talladega!!!

Fans that throw stuff on the field of play are criminals.
If you throw an object "from" a moving vehicle you get in trouble. If you throw a projectile at a moving automobile you get in trouble.

Sorry for being old school but it's a no brainer.
Don't throw beer bottles at NASCARS
Don't throw beer bottles at NFL Football Games
Don't throw beer bottles at BBQ Competition Teams

WTF? What if it was ok to throw beer bootles at me and my Team cus another team hated me? Ack!

peace and no bottle throwing

Re: Disgusting display at Talladega!!!

"Talladega Superspeedway has permanently banned 14 fans from buying tickets at the speedway following their arrests Sunday for throwing objects on the track after Jeff Gordon's victory in the Aaron's 499.
The fans were charged with disorderly conduct Sunday and posted bond at the track's jail facilities, Talladega County Sheriff Jerry Studdard said. Track officials can't prevent the 14 fans from buying tickets through a third party."

WTF!

They can't by tickets? Who cares? They can still attend the race. Why don't the track officials just ban there stupid asses from the track for life? I had a friend who ran onto the field at an Angels game in High School and he was banned from Anaheim stadium for life.
Who cares about buying the tickets? They’ll just get uncle Billy bob to buy them next year.

you would be shocked how many closet soccer fans there are. They usually dont talk about it 24/7 because they feel people will bash them, etc. For example I was watching the Liverpool game yesterday at our Game Room, I expected about 10 people to be there. Over 70 people showed up for that game! Today is gonna be the Man U game, and I doubt ill be able to watch it there because I am assuming 100s will want to watch that. Plus its on ESPN 2, not usually on ESPN unless it is a US game or something. They also do not show the majority of games, but since the UEFA championships are going on, that is why its on.

There are soccer fans man, hey you might even be a fan. You just dont know it.

Haha, come on SmootSmack, give me my props for that^^. I remember your guys advertising slogans. I love the new MLS ad campaign btw. Also like the NASCAR ads too, with everyone in driving school. Good stuff.

Re: Disgusting display at Talladega!!!

My buddy is a die hard Liverpool fan, so he was calling me with updates on my drive home, and I got home in time for the Penalty Kicks. Reina is the man. I'm a Manchester United fan, so once a year, we get together at my house to watch the match live (either Fox Soccer Channel or PPV). Guinness, bacon and eggs, and football. Makes for a great morning.

So I definitely have interest in the match today. I had to watch the replay on ESPN Classic last week. I erupted when Rooney hit that shot in Extra Time to clinch it 3-2. But there was nothing better than watching them put 7 up on Roma.

So yeah I watch football...you want to fight about it?

Yeah Roma game was sick. I dont know about you guys and Milan today. Might be a bit tough. I am an Arsenal fan, and Man U hater lol, so I root for Milan.

yea, i agree with that 100%. i'm well aware of the passion people have for soccer all over the world, i just don't see it around here. maybe it's just the company i keep, i have met like 2 people over the age of 5 that was a fan of soccer. here in va. beach the city built this really nice soccer stadium. it was built a while ago when playing soccer was really becoming popular among the young kids. the beach even had it's own soccer team, the sharks or something like that, well, attendance never lived up to expectations and now the team is on it's way out and the city is trying to figure out what to do with the stadium.

hockey is a sport that is struggling right now with it's popularity but i'll tell you what, around this area hockey is leaps and bounds ahead of soccer when it comes to popularity. like i said though, maybe it's just the company i keep or maybe it's just the area i live in.

It's gonna be a war at San Siro today. I wonder how many Man U fans get locked up this time around in Italy?

i'm pretty sure that i'm not a fan. i've tried watching soccer before,sometimes there's just nothing good on tv,even then i can only watch about 5 min. or so. i just find it too boring. i'm like that with other sports as well, i have a hard time watching baseball, golf and a few other sports to go along with soccer. hell, i even have a hard time watching a whole nascar race without falling asleep or something.
