So Newman has a college degree in engineering for that matter and that makes him smarter? I think you just proved a point.
you asked, scroll up.
Elliot is exposing himself with this twitter fade, a few months from now it will be something is right?
So what happened in the NW race today? I read here the Elliott had a good car. Something must have happened.
Anyone who thinks they are smarter because they have a degree only makes my point, so thanks for the help proving it, and yes even I have a degreee.

I would say to those who want to know real "smart" people, go serve your country and get shot at for a while. Those "degree" only having people you speak of couldn't carry their water.

You have a point? All I see you posting is deflecting statements and not you are trying to tug at the hear strings.

I mean come on, we are comparing people with engineering degrees to a person who dropped out of college after one semester. If you had no idea who was behind a tweet full of spelling and grammar errors, which would you guess? The engineer or the drop out?

I said early on that his treets are exposing him in a way that down the road he will probably regret. I'll stick to that one too.
I see it too

Elliott will do this twiiter thing for a few months then it will die off like all his other gimicks. The My Space, the Infield Parking, the Weds chats all went by the way side after the newness wore off. Twitter will be no different eithewr, especially when a few of his tweets get him into trouble.

Someone used the word Transperant, and that is just what twitter does. I do not Elliott is smart enough to use this tool without messing up.

If exposing a country guy from Virginia as being a country guy from Virginia then you are right. I never thought he was anything else. I just think it's funny that an engineer and Elliott ended up in the same job. I wouldn't use that as an example of engineering being better but that's just me. They drive cars for a living, if I could have left college or even quit high school and ended up with millions I would have done it in a minute.

I just went to Twitter and read Elliott's posts. Most of them are spelled correctly but some of them look just like any other text message. It seems he is in a hurry or trying to make words smaller to fit into the 160 character limit.
just guessing

I love you guys (well, most of you) but this is the most ridiculous forum. We are reduced to picking at Elliotts tweets, twits or whatever they're called! Who cares if he makes a spelling mistake. My goodness. There has to be something better to talk about.

I see you bitch about a topic, but add nothing to it. Just insist there is something better to talk about...but don't talk about anything.

Apparently since Elliott Sadler now sucks as a driver and is married to a psycho...maybe there isn't too much to talk about??

Oh good, another person who wants to talk crap and be negative. You're right, I didn't add to the "topic" because they're isn't much to say when the "topic" is someone's incorrectly spelled words on Twitter! I've seen more spelling issues on these forums then anywhere else! I figure its because people are in a hurry, not because they are uneducated.

I choose to keep quiet rather than spew nastiness. I was raised by good people who taught me basic decency....you know, if you can't say something nice say nothing at all?? You might want to take that advice "Brainiac" (hhmmm....).

You should google the word "bitch" because what I said certainly doesn't fit that definition.

Hope you have a nice day and not a miserable pathetic one.

You didn't choose to keep quiet b/c you posted a negative comment about a subject someone chose to post about.

bitch:
Slang. a. a complaint.
verb (used without object) 5. Slang. to complain; gripe:

Think it fits perfectly.

Did I miss all the new threads you posted w/all your exciting topix you want to discuss?

Sorry it's not up to your high standards.

If one chooses the communicated with his fans verbally, and is grammatically and spelling challenged, expect some fallout. Ryan doesn't have that problem with his tweets, which was the reason for the comparison. It had nothing to do with on track performance (although Ryan is a step above there as well.

I wonder who the worse tweeter is? Elliott or Junior? Or is it content over grammar/spelling? Reading both, I'll go with Junior by a nose.

Just because a statement doesn't agree with your opinion doesn't make it a complaint or a "bitch." Geez you are a dumbass. I spend my entire work day dealing with negativity and people who try to stir up issues and controversy and make excuses for their bad decisions. You want to argue and debate about something that doesn't matter, at least to me. Your desire to be right is pathetic. What a loser.

This used to be a place to come and talk about my favorite driver. Before someone gets all crazy, I realize that he is not the BEST driver, he is MY favorite. All of the regulars (Sorry4esad, theo, Mo-Mo, etc.) have been driven away by people like you who only want to talk crap about us, and our driver. So, respond if you feel the need to as you apparently need to have the last word, I am done with you.

I tried to jump in a few times on conversations here but now I lurk around and just read everything. I feel the same about Elliott as you do cak. In fact, I take a ton of grief for being an Elliott Sadler fan but I don't give a rip.
What pisses me off is that Elliott is under the microscope contantly. Every little thing he says or does comes under heavy scrutiny. Noone is ever satisfied or happy with what he says or does. The man could crap golden eggs and hand them out to every fan yet this still wouldn't be good enough. It all gets really old. Now it's this Twitter thing and how he doesn't spell right or he talks about this but doesn't mention that. When he mentions his wife he gets torn to shreds and when he doesn't, the same still happens. The man can't win for losing.
I'll continue to support Elliott regardless of how poorly he runs, the way he spells on something as unimportant as Twitter, whether he talks about his wife or not- yadda, yadda, yadda. It's likely that he doesn't mention Amanda alot to avoid all of this crap. His personal life is really noone's business except for those that are closest to him. That's the way I feel. So what if he doesn't spell or puntuate perfectly, who does? I know I don't. Give the man a break.

One more thing- I happen to enjoy reading his Twitter updates. I think it's cool that he does this to keep in touch with his fans and friends. It's not his obligation to put his life out there like he does. I think NASCAR drivers go above and beyond the call of duty in order to keep their jobs and their fan base happy. They pretty much work nonstop and get very little time for their personal lives.

How ridiculous that things are so quiet on the forum that we have to reduce ourselves to criticizing Elliott's grammar and "tweeting." Can't wait until something interesting happens and we have something legitimate to talk about.

I guess everyone has a job that has a two and a half months worth of vacation while working only 4 day work weeks with the occasional sponsor appearance scattered in between.

thats non stop for ya!

Don't try to convince anyone that it is.
