Another reason NASCRAP gets a thumbs-down from me........

This is something I just flat don't understand: http://sports.yahoo.com/nascar/news?...v=ap&type=lgns
When did NASCAR decide to get all uppity and ****? Seriously, can anyone come up with one instance where someone watching this NASCAR "race" on T.V. was truly offended by Earnhadt's little word?
Who is their core audience? Who in their core audience has not used this word?
****, he didn't even say it to anyone or about anyone, in anger or anything. He said it as part of a sentence, just as anyone else using a normal word would.
I don't know, I just can't get into NASCAR, and this is beyond laughable to me.

The fine doesn't sit wrong with me because anyone on live TV who said a "bad" word would probably be fined by someone...BUT, docking him the 25 points is just ridiculous.

how many times did they say **** on that episode of South Park, yeah I know it was cable tv late at night but they still did it. People have to learn words like **** and **** are just words.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I'm definitely NOT a fan of the left-turn-only circuit, but I think this is pretty ridiculous. I say fine the guy, but don't take championship points. That's like taking a touchdown away from a Superbowl team because the quarterback cursed after a play. Stupid.

Just not a fan and this certainly doesn't entice me to become one.

yeah seriously who the **** can't get the car into top gear, keep their foot almost all the way down and hold the wheel to the left?
