Rick knew exactly what he was doing. Bet he's glad now he saved himself the embarrassment of Kyle's behavior.

Mr. H released Kyle due to behavior/maturity and he didn't fit within what his drivers should be.

DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH JR. Kyle was BUMPED by Casey Mears, who probably will loose his ride this year also.

Hi, havent seen you post for awhile. I look for JJ to come on strong the last part of the season. What do you think of him & Kurt banging around on each other? I look for him or JG to spin him out or put him in the wall.

Hi girl. I'm not on that much anymore. Comes in spells. haha. I think Jimmie is doing a great job. I think Kurt is reveting back to his old crybaby self. Maybe he doesn't like all the attention his little bro is getting and wants some for himself.

I agree...I think Rick new exactly what he was doing

Remember, at the end of the day, it's all about the almighty dollar...lol.

As far as being embarrassed by Kyle's behavior, I think Joe and JD received plenty of "schooling" on the subject from Tony from '02 to '05!!!

Thank you for proving my point. I didn't say "my post", I said other "Jr fans posts". Hense their being quite a few more then me stating Jr has 'd up this year. If you took your blinders off, you would see those posts made by "other" Jr fans.
Thanks for showing you couldn't read either post you responded to.
Have a great day. I am off to write finals.
As for brain capacity...how does one finish a Nursing program in just one year at the top of her clas?
Those blinders must be permanently fixed.
In your original post #224 you said;

"You certainly missed my post".

So what I was referring to was what you originally said. It must suck that you don't recall what you said and I do.

Which doesn't change the fact that not seeing someone's post (because they're not on here all the time) is having blinders on.

I'm trying to explain it in its simplest form since you seam to struggle with basic common sense.

I love when people feel the need to brag about themselves to someone they don't know to make themselves feel better.

Do you feel better? Laughable!

You know I actually doubt that. Gibbs put up with Tony and Tony was hitting people at one point. At least Kyle knows not to punch people. Gibbs will work with him, I'm sure.

And yeah, Hendrick is a business man and Jr's his cash cow. Until that's not true, Jr is going no where.

Not sure which statement you are referring to when you say "You know I actually doubt that."

He was released due to his behavior and it was to make room for Casey.

I have mucho respect for Coach Gibbs, and I hope he works things through with Kyle, because the boy does have talent.

Mr. H certainly is a busines man, but I think his having JR is beyond $$, I think it's personal. Now that's not to say that if Jr, at the end of his contract, still wasn't producing, that Rick would not hesitate to say adios, but for now.. more than money, it has to do with their relationship.

I am a Dale, Jr fan and frankly am getting sick of hearing all of the crap wrote about him this year. This whole thing began at the 1st race in Daytona and has only gotten worse. Jr's mistakes and his crew have been sensationalized all year. Blame the media, yes I do blame them for some of this. Anyone performs better when they have confidence in themselves and right now it would be hard for Jr or anyone else in his position considering what has been written about him. I honestly feel that Dale, Jr is every bit as good a driver as most of the ones currently in the top 12 for the chase. Jr. has little chance of making this year's chase but he can still turn his season around and start winning races and getting good finishes. It wouldn't bother me either if he started using a bit of his Dad's driving philosophy.
Then why read any of it? I am not trying to start anything here, but seriously, why read about it and then get mad and make up an excuse for Jr's not so great performance by blaming the media and what is written about him? All sport's star's get this kind of treatment, it isn't specific to Nascar only, they "kick him when he's down" philosophy is pretty much held by a lot of the media because they know it's what reel's the stupid masses in.
Dale is a full grown man who grew up in this industry, he is not niave to the backstabbing and hateful commentary of the cr*py media, as a matter of fact, he grew up with that too! He know's how to turn a television or radio off and to ignore websites on the internet that disapprove of his performance this year and want to rip him apart for it. Stop treating him like he is this fragile personality who's going to crumble at the first negative comment about him, his family or his performance. He has tougher skin than I think people want to NOT give him credit for. Dale Jr is not his father, so why would he go by his father's philosophy, just because you think he should? He seems to be sticking to his own philosophy pretty well to me.

I have a MBA. Thought I'd say that. You're arguing with the dude who argues for the sake of doing so.
Those of us who don't prefer to argue constantly noticed ya'll (yes I'll lump everyone in to a huge group) state that he had messed up, and I've actually seen someone admit that Jr is indeed the problem.
Unfortunately there's still those dorks out there who refuse to recognize what's in front of them.
Thank God you guys have the sense to pay attention.
Anyhoot.
LOL thanks. Some of us fans do go "damn you Jr" when he messes up time and time again.

Since Jr won't be in the chase, I am hoping for a Tony or Mark Martin win.

I suggest you go back and read my original post #194 and YOUR response in post #210 which started this conversation. Since you claim to have "missed it", even though you responded to it.

I suggest you eat the crow well done so you don't catch any diseases.

Have a lovely day.

ABFan is just as bad as mrbreeze, they expect you to respond to their post 5 minutes after they post it and if you aren't on for a while you're supposed to page back to see if they posted to you.
Some people have lives outside Topix, by the way I'll be away for a couple days but I'll check back. NOT!!!

Is it me, or are the AOL anonymous users bigger morons then they used to be?

At least go to school and learn to read, then maybe you might be able to keep up with the conversation.

They're nutcases, They wait like Predators waiting on their prey, to pounce on someone's posts. They are what Bugs Bunny would call, Moroons.
