Did he really want the "job" or was he hoping they would settle or he would win the lawsuit? I believe he was going for more ($) than just the buyout. I think he would have preferred the buyout plus the additional. And there is no doubt in my mind that his fiance would rather he wasn't racing.
That's the difference, I am happy my husband has a job that he enjoys and he wants to work to keep it!
And the point to this little tirade of thinks, beliefs and being happy your husband is employed is? I keep looking for a fact, hidden somewhere in all the "Deep thought and beliefs" and can not find one.

Let's see if I can help you, voice of "reality." New at this is married and her husband has a job that he likes. She is supportive of him and is happy about it and does not undermine him in his work efforts. Amanda has a fiance who has a job that SHE doesn't like ("I can think of plenty better things to do on a Sunday than go to a race"). She likes (LOVES) the money but is not willing to treat his fans (the ultimate source of his money..quoting the King's speech, years ago, to his son, Kyle, "no fans--no TV, no NASCAR.")with any kind of decency or respect. He does have his ride back. We'll see, this season, as his wife ("not somebody's girlfriend"), if she can grow up and find some class and act appropriately in public. If not, ultimately, Sadler will probably resign his ride to "save" his marriage--which would be the ultimate mistake. My belief is, that had Sadler's "biological clock" not been "ticking" the day he saw Amanda playing softball, she would be nothing more than another of his one night stands. She is NOTHING to look at, apparently not as intelligent as her degrees would imply and has the personality of a wounded leopard when at public events. He could find much better stock to breed with!!

I have to disagree with you on this point. IF he chose the buyout and sat out this season, odds are that he would've been out of racing completely. With teams basically running at a minumum and sponsor $$'s limited. There are FAR more drivers than available rides. To not have exposure or the opportunity to "try out" for another team, his career would've been over, IMO.

There's no doubt SHE wanted him out of racing, but I believe thats NOT what he wanted and bottom line, he has to do whats best for his career.

Amanda and Elliott will always give us something to talk about weather it be good or bad. They are the ones that have to decide that when ever the cameras on them or when they are at the track with fans around.

It was not about the damn money. It was about his love of the sport. She will either get over it or be gone. No matter what she thinks she will never come before his car. If she thinks she will she is a fool. Yes he had gotten very comfortable but this has taught him how quickly that can be gone and if she tries to ruin it for him she will be gone just as quick.

Kevin Buskirk...he was team engineer at Yates under Todd Parrott...when Elliott had his last two wins. Maybe he'll bring on some luck!

I don't care who he's with. I care about his job on the track. If the recent poll is any indication, we'll see AJ Allmindinger in this ride by the Daytona 500!

Elliott already has the ride back. AJ is in the 10 and because of sponsors supporting Elliott,he will be in the 19. Where have you been?
