I've been thinking about the flak that Tony has gotten over his driving and his safety comments. I've come to the conclusion that maybe he doesn't deserve all of it. i still think opening his mouth was foolish. just because of the can of worms he ended up opening.
think about a few things
- when he made his comments he was referring specifically to "bump drafting" when he said they'll end up killing someone.
- his wrecks and bumps during the race had nothing to do with bump-drafting. at all. he was hitting guys from the side.
- was this kind of behavior atypical for him? he's been paying guys back since he got on the track. it's just his style.
- do you really think it's realistic to eliminate bumping and banging altogether? try to imagine Bristol with no bumping.
so when you think about it, he wasn't really being a hypocrite.
if i'm wrong someone tell me why.
