Pole Position #3

Pole Position #3

Now isn't that about a false statement. When is the last time the #3 held a
pole position? Hell he has trouble just qualifying for a race.

Everybody ***es about the #24 dominating Nascar Winston Cup racing but
doesn't realize that there team is just a better team. And all the
Earnhardt fans are upset because he has taken away the spotlight from him.
Hell the only interview Dale E. gets is a what happened interview.

The bottom line is that the chance of #3 surpassing 7 WC championships is
very unlikely. When people face up to the fact that JG is probably the best
driver in Nascar at this time maybe all the charachter bashing will stop.

There is a new king of the hill and his name is Jeff Gordon until proven
different. So an accurate statement should be Pole Position #24 cause he
usually sets there.

Jeff Gordon is not the new intimidator! I prefer to call him the Dominator
and that is a factual statement.

     While I certainly have no love for Jeff Gordon, it's more
appropriate to say he is "one of" the best drivers, not "the best."
     The fact of the matter is that he's neither the most consistent or
most cool from the driver point of view. He still makes impassioned
and/or silly mistakes that happen to drivers with as little sedan-based
oval track driving as he has compared to many of his contemporaries.
There were a few foolish drafting moves he made at Talladega a few weeks
back. One was trying to pass Mark Martin early in the race when it was
obvious that he and Mark were the two fastest cars on the track
*together*.
     None of these drivers is perfect... no driver is perfect. Even
Michael Schumacher made a fairly large mistake in his dramatic win at
Monte Carlo a few weeks back. It's the cool, level-headed driver who can
triumph over all and still be regarded as the champion, even when he
doesn't win. Gordon is no flash in the pan, but he's certainly no
Schumacher.
     Too many people flatter themselves by thinking Gordon is disliked
because he wins a lot of races. Rusty Wallace won 18 races over two
years a couple of years back. He then won five last year. Where are his
detractors? Mark Martin won five races in 1993, four of which were in a
row, and four in 1995 (two consecutive). Why did you never hear him
booed at the track?
     Both Rusty and Mark are and have been point contenders as well. The
Roush team in particular is hot right now. The have five consecutive top
three's (two thirds, a second and two wins) and six consecutive top
fives. I didn't hear too many people booing Mark yesterday.

     <<There is a new king of the hill and his name is Jeff Gordon until
proven different.>>

     Terry Labonte is the current champion and points leader. Is that
proof enough?

I was thinking the exact same thing last night, but was too lazy to turn
my computer back on.  I think he's jinxing Earnhardt, maybe he should
change his signature to "97 Champion #24" and see if it works on Gordon.

ELSE to post their nonsense!!!!!!!!

Let us HOPE,

I still don't understand why it's the Earnhardt fans who complain the
most about Gordon.  The two guys get along really well, and I think
they've got a couple of business deals going together.  They always race
each other clean.  I dunno.  Figuring out half the people in this NG
would take a millennium.
