Thanks for the response, Mike. I'll accept your opinion, since you are a lot closer to Indy than I am and maybe you're a more regular reader of The Star than me. I read Cavin's blog pretty regularly, and it seems to me that he always mentions Miller with an attitude of holier-than-thou or superiority or something.
I know Miller is a polarizing figure. And I don't always like the way he injects himself into his stories (I don't think professional journalists should "call people names," among other things; Robin does that in his articles/commentaries and I think it makes him look unprofessional--imagine John Clayton doing that with an NFL owner or Peter Gammons doing that with a MBL owner). The whole split has become too personal for Miller, and it comes out in his writing in ways that I think are amateurish.
But with all that being said (just so you and whoever else reads this knows that I'm not a Miller apologist--I see the flaws and, let's face it, there's a reason he's been fired from more outlets than just about anyone else in the biz!), he still gets the stories BEFORE anyone else, he knows what's going on with both series BETTER than anyone else, and it looks to me like everyone else that reports on American open-wheel racing is always playing catch-up to Miller (including Oreo at ESPN and the guy that writes for SI). Miller's the best, despite all the stuff that drives everyone crazy!:)
Let's hope for good news this week out of Japan!
