Obviously, it was a black and white survey. Do fans think it was junior's fault? I imagine some do, but think as I do. I think it's racing and they are both equally at fault

Jackpot!!!!!

Even though it's mostly Vicvkers fault, it ISN'T all his fault.

Also the reason a mojority of people blame Jr. more, look who his owner is! I know it for a fact, ask my Dad!

It is way past time.For JR to start being judged by his actions and talent, and not his popularity. From the great racers that he comes from his father and grandfather. He is a joke. And I think people are staring to see that.

Keep it up Jr. and we will be watching "funniest home videos" every week-end. I am sure when you wrecked half of the damn field that did not help TV rating. Don't give me that crap it was racing or it was Vickers fault. Hell; Steve Wonder could see who damn fault it was.

They are backing Little E. His fans have manners unlike the anti-little e punks so you don't see bad behavior from them.

Who gives a damn who's fault it is?! Wrecks happen at 190 mph. Somebody causes a wreck one week, somebody different the next week. If you can't handle watching the races, I suggest Dr. Phil. Maybe that would suit you better.

Vickers needs to get out more. A good many fans are backing Junior. Anyhoo, can we move on???? I am really tired of hearing about this. Lord knows DW and his side kick will have to give us their opinions again in the booth today.

Lets see how much attention is payed to the 2 teams that got suspensions this week. 1 for Drugs and 1 for Cheating. To me, that is FAR more serious that an accidental wreck. I am so sick of hearing all the pitty party's for BV. If you cant handle things that happen at races maybe he (BV) should try go-carts where you cant get up over 30mph.

I think the focus should be more on the cheating and drug use. Weather it is in Sprint cup, Nationwide or Truck series. There isnt a driver out there that hasen't caused an accident and to continue to critisize ANY DRIVER is redicilous. Dalr JR is not perfect nor is any other driver, but to continue to slam him for something every other driver has done is really unfair. It's all part of racing and if you cant handle it, watch something else.

Your right it way past time for Jr to start being judged by his actions and talent and not his popularity, fan base or last name. This statement applies to the haters as well.

Nobody is a joke. That's just ignorant.

No, you only wish people would start to share you opinion on Jr. They won't.

That's so true. Had it been any other driver, it would not have been made such a big deal. I don't remember Carl Edwards getting bashed relentlessly for a solid week after Talladega last year.

Dale's the fan favorite and I'm sure all the media knew people would read anything with his name on it...negative and positive. It pleases both sides, his haters and his fans.
