I have seen this - Agreed. Question, why didnt Danica receive the same excuseapolooza? I mean I was/am a diehard DP supporter, but I was fighting an army of nay sayers.
I was never anti-Danica, I wanted her to succeed too, but honestly she was NEVER as likable as Ms. Deegan in my opinion, even though her valley girl voice wears on my brain after awhile. I can understand and accept the opinion many have that Deegan is not very talented, I just don't get the aggressive hatred. She isn't doing anything anyone else wouldn't do given the same circumstances, and think she has conducted herself like a professional under some trying situations. She interacts well with her crew, she doesn't whine every time something doesn't go her way, she doesn't play the girl card all the time, and doesn't throw the team under the bus when they don't run well. I think she has good car control. Her one and ONLY sin in my opinion, is she isn't super fast. Is THAT a reason to be outwardly hostile to her? As for her media presence, it probably isn't that big in the grand scheme of the world, but there are companies willing to pay for her to do something we would all give our left gonad to get to do. Isn't that big enough? You can argue that she hasn't earned the opportunity she has, but I could probably name 20 GUYS in NASCAR's top three series I could say the same thing about. Why single her out?
