I just read that Kenseth has signed a multiyear extension to stay on with Roush racing. I have to admit, i'm very disappointed. not JUST because i hate Roush either. i'm saddened because i honestly figured Kenseth had more sense than this. I would have thought the first 3/4 of the 2005 season would have taught Matt something. I thought it would have exposed him to the reality of just what kind of bandwagon owner Roush is. i thought Matt would try and go to a team who would appreciate his talent when things are good AND when things are bad. frankly this is like finding out a married friend of yours has decided to go back to her husband even though he treats her like crap and hits her on occasion. sure, we all know that this was Matt's choice and i'm sure he has his reasons. you just can't help but look at this and think to yourself "does he think Roush is going to change? " or even worse he really will act like a battered wife and blame himself, "maybe i didn't perform as well as i could have. maybe Jack was right for ignoring me the way he did. maybe if i try extra hard he'll see how good i am." am i wrong for feeling like Matt just surrendered like he was a French Army?
