I think most sports in N. America are becoming way too vanilla. Too much money on the line for crashing and banging. Sponsors over react to any independent thought or action. Kapernik not playing may have more to do with NFL sponsors then owners. Too much money on the line.


True, but you still need personalities. Sports media does not market Packers vs. Giants. They market Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers vs. Eli Manning and the New York Giants.

Who is marketable in NASCAR right now? The Brothers Busch? Keslowski? Harvick? Larson? Hamlin? Truex?

Going from Earnhardt, Gordon, Stewart, Wallace, Jarrett, Martin, Junior, the brothers Burton and Labonte, etc over the last 10-15 years to the current crop is an incredible dropoff in personalities. We don't even have a Jimmy Spencer or a Sterling Marlin type, we sure don't have a Dick Trickle.

The technology and speed won't hold interest like it used to, there's nothing to connect the car on the track to the cars everyone drives on the street, and consumers aren't nearly as brand-loyal (or nationalistic) when it comes to cars as they once were. Personalities are a must.



I agree with everything you say. K Busch is trying his best to be a villian and Kyle Larson is a great driver but lack of personality/drama/soap opera/storyline is killing Nascar.

NASCAR and these teams are learning their expenditures are not sustainable because the spigot is turning off and they'll all left scrambling for money. Lots of people in trouble with securing sponsors and commitments.

When some teams are hogging all the sponsorship dollars this is not going to end well. I think they are trying to reign in costs but when a team has several cars dedicated to certain style of tracks and multiple haulers running everywhere dropping the jack man is not going to do **** to save money.

Pretty soon getting a 40 car starting lineup every week is going to be a challenge.

It's as if Brian France is trying to put Humpty Dumpty back together again by taking a hammer to the largest pieces.

So Sang, if I come to buy you a pizza in Chicago if you win this fantasy league (you won't haha), what do you give me if I win? DanB trying to make it a 3 man race. What happened to Heineken, faded a bit. LeglizHemp in 4th place overall, they watch NASCAR in Australia?

Did you not use Kyle Busch this week because you thought I would use him? That's the reason I didn't use him because I thought you would. Worked out good for both of us though.

LOL, I have very limited cable here. No Nascar, NFL only on monday morning. I get 4pm game and sunday night game so far. I think later in the season i might get more.

Watch out in Nascar because i have 6 more uses for busch and truex. Not sure i can catch Sang, but maybe.

That's why I'm going to beat you!

I do keep up on it. But there was a race 2 weeks ago Saturday night, whatever race it was, last one before the playoffs started. I get really really into college football, totally forgot about a race and didn't adjust the starters on my team for the first time this year. Checked the results that night and as it turned out A and B drivers that were started finished the best over the bench guys. Had I changed the lineup I would've likely used different drivers, so just goes to show that alot of thought doesn't always make a difference.

But in the long run, I'll get you pit stop sang!

Didn't bring it very good last week. I had avoided crashes for a while, but not last week, 2 drives in the garage. Can't afford any more mistakes the last 8 races and will need you to make one or two.

Well Sang, it's been nice racin' with ya!

You'll need atleast 336 pts, but likely more, this week to beat me. You might be worried about who is coming up on your back door for #2 overall (DanB).

So you never said, what do I get when I win?
