Thats why i love this man. He is the ultimate bad boy. The first time i saw him climb the fence after winning a race, i knew he would be considered as one of Nascars greats.

I volunteer to slap his arse. I will slap it very hard and it will sting. In fact, I volunteer to slap his arse everytime he does something wrong. I can walk behind him and just slap his arse everytime he opens his mouth...maybe for no reason at all, just cause I feel like it. Sounds like a perfect job for me. Wow.....

The way I'm hearing it Tony got his ass spanked by the fellow he head butted with his helmet still on. I hear he's wearing shades to cover a big shiner one of the race promoters down under tatooed on him.

The guy did plant one on him, but Tony had to have been holding his helmet in his hand and hit the guy with it. Hard to deliver a shot to the eye if he was wearing the helmet.

There was nothing written about Tony having the helmet on . They said he smashed the guy in the face with his helmet . There is nothing saying he was wearing it or if he wasn't wearing it .

According to this it states he threw the helmet. >>>According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Stewart threw his helmet at track co-owner Brett Morris during an alleged dispute over track conditions at Sydney Speedway. The newspaper said Stewart received a black eye in return from Morris, who the paper described as "not slight in size.''

No black eye. He talked about the incident and spent time answering questions regarding the new track for Daytona. Nothing major on it. He did not get mad about the questions regarding Australia. He also stated he would go back next year.

Wow, Fat Tony gets his ass handed to him on and now off the track. What a surprise. He's all show n' no go. Maybe that shiner will make him a lil' more humble. BWAAA!!!

I don't think Tony is out of the woods yet. The man he smashed with his helmet is going to need surgery. Tony may be in more trouble than what
he had figured on.

IMO, Tony will handle it as he has done in the past. As I understand it, the surgery is considered minor surgery. We all know that Tony has handled people's problems with him financially, so he could pay for this surgery and not bat an eyelash. I think Mr. Morris is seeing big bucks here...we'll see if that happens. The Aussies really seem overly concerned with how much money Tony makes!

Turn on your TV . You can sue if you received this type of injury . You can sue if you took this medication . You can sue if you had what ever joint replacement ( I think the big deal now is some knee replacement .) You can sue if you worked in this type of environment .Hell you can even sue if you had a certain IUD. Even in are own country we are being told to sue someone to get rich .I do not care who you R or where you live . Suing someone is becoming a way of life . JMO
