You are such and a**. Just because some of us are true fans of someone, you have to be a jerk about it. We don't need to route for the ones who have a "perfect" winning record. If we did, it would be sooooo boring.
Unless you are jealous and wanted Sadler all to yourself. Youre just being a jerk-off because of it. Takes all kinds to be in this world

I hate to tell you this, but there are more of us out there. You and Edwin P. should get together and crawl back in the hole you came from.

I attend about 10 races a year and I can tell you that Sadler fans are far and few between compared to what they were 5 years ago. All his "true" fans must be in hiding or something, or maybe they are in perminent Halloween costumes dressed up as non Elliott Sadler fans. Because they don't show up for races anymore.

Most people jump from driver to driver based on who is running good or hot at the time.(Except Jr. Nation) Riding the bandwagon is done by all sports and is more popular today than ever. The Carolina Panthers in my area is a great example. If they are doing well everyone is a fan, if they are not they disappear only to appear after a win or a few good games.

Most people? Isn't that contradictory from the mantra that NASCAR FANS are the most loyal in sports? You can't have it both ways can you?

I didn't know I had it one way, but that is nice to know. 10 or so years ago, yes they were more loyal, but IMO todays fans jump ship from the "not so big" drivers pretty quickly. People, in general, today are not as loyal to anything as they used to be.

That's good ole days syndrome and can be discounted very easy.

Are you sure you are not Elliott's PR pitchman? Because you can sure shovel the excuses and BS with the best of them.

Pitchman? I guess you don't run into people who actually have an educated opinion often, must be tough for you. bs = bs, unless it only goes one way in your world.

Your excuses are far from educated and full of emotion. Me thinks you are a pitchman, Probably Elliott's webmaster to his little domain or something trying to keep up with damage control. You may own that place, but you don't own this one.

So with all of your emotional filled stuff, does that make you AJ's or ,I get it, a former RYR employee still upset at Elliott for ruining your favorite place.(I don't think that really, just riding your wave for a bit).

While I would love to work for a team, driver, sponsor or something in NASCAR, my 2 weeks a year and a couple days a month job with the US Army tends to take up the majority of my free time, besides my regualar job anyway. Feel free to try to fit me into whatever box you feel is important to you.

The Sadler apologist fits pretty good. We can stick with that one as you continue with that methodology.

I missed my calling, I knew I should have been a 97b. Maybe I can still get a reclassification. Don't tell anyone, I am "from Emporia" now.

The kicker for me this weekend was listening to Elliott and his disappointment after finding out that more cars in front of him didn't run out of gas. Pretty sad when you think about it.

Wow/Perkins...
Clearly you're not a Sadler fan, so what is "sad" is your obsession with him and his performances. Another thing that is scary/"sad" is how you come on here blasting away at the Sadler fans when you are one who comes back here to update this thread on a regular basis.
Why not go by one or the other SN (Perkins or WOw)? Scary. Damn scary.

Why do you hate America and free speech?

How about mixing in a few pass on the track next time instead of wishing more would run out of gas or wreck in order to gain spots. You could hear the joy in Elliott's spotter's voice when that wreck happened that took out a half a dozen lead lap cars. Again, pretty sad when you think about it.

Best garage rumor heard last weekend at Texas. Elliott has been passed over for the Bass Pro ride even though Jamie McMurray is a terrible fit for the sponsor (too feminine). The Sponsor felt that having a driver that would give them a better chance to win was more important that having an avid hunter/outdoorsman is their spokes person.

I was @ the race on Sunday and I can tell you that win I was there 4 years ago there were a bunch of ES fans showing their pride. This year i think I so one or two. The ES fans have jumped off the wagon thats for sure. Not surprising.
