think that the description for this sub-forum is rather poorly worded?

"A board dedicated to those drivers that have lost their lives for our entertainment."

I'm certainly not being flippant but this just bothers me every time I read it. I'm sure it wasn't intended like it reads but it just doesn't sound right.

You're absolutely right, it's worded terribly.

I've never been entertained when a driver has lost his life.

I can see how it was intended respectfully by whoever wrote it, as in they sacrifice their safety in part to provide entertainment for racing fans.

Just trying to get on the same page..... Are we saying that the description, The Checkered Flag, is offensive or was something else posted that had since been removed? Color me confused.
