I like both football and nascar, but the money involved is just too great...when you discover the amount of wealth taken out, and not reinvested in the fans, there lies the problem

The TV timeouts, play reviews, and all the other play stoppages at football games are as bad as all the cautions in NASCAR. Most sports are becoming TV events; best watched from a comfortable chair with a remote control in hand.

That's exactly what I do. Been doing it for years. But still there is nothing better than the awesome feeling of being at a track live and actually feeling the rumbling of 43 cars racing. I was hooked my first race.

I'm not sure what you're getting at. How are you wanting money invested back into fans, exactly?

Step 1 - Football
Step 2 - Invest in fans
Step 3 -
Step 4 - Profit

That's a South Park reference, of sorts, in case anyone is confused. In an episode of South Park, underpants gnomes were explaining why they steal underpants. They have four steps to their explanation. Step 4 is profit. They leave out step 3, which is the important bit needed to make sense.
