According to FBI. Garage door pull rope fashioned in a noose has been there since last race and verified by pictures.
If anyone was criticized for expressing that they would calmly wait for the results of the investigation before reacting, yes. For those who termed it a deliberate hoax (already happening again above), or played the "What about crime in Chicago?" game, no, they aren't owed anything but scorn.Alot of people are owed apologies on this board as well.
In these times, I wouldn't even say an overreaction. I'm happy it wasn't as serious as it could have been, no one is harmed and everyone is safe.I’m thankful Bubba wasn’t the target of an actual hate crime. That’s the important thing.
That said, this is an embarrassing overreaction. All the unity and positivity from yesterday is about to get completely enveloped.
When I heard the rope door thing I thought the same, there is no way someone is going to make that kind of mistake, yet here we are. I'm stunned beyond belief.Un****ingbelievable.
I heard the pull rope mentioned last night and I responded with "no dumbass everyone is aware of those, no way they **** up this bad" aaaand here we are.
Big F by nascar, jumping to racial conclusions and making every member of the sport with a twitter handle look like idiots.
Well, considering it was the 43 garage and it would be easy to see something sinister.When I heard the rope door thing I thought the same, there is no way someone is going to make that kind of mistake, yet here we are. I'm stunned beyond belief.
Sorry, I don't see it as embarrassing. I see it as being sure that everyone is safe and not being threatened in any way.Un****ingbelievavle.
What an EMBARRESSMENT.
Nascar had the world in its hand and they BLEW it.

Im fully appreciative for Bubba’s safety obviously. Love that dude. And also relived to know the support he was shown yesterday was authentic.In these times, I wouldn't even say an overreaction. I'm happy it wasn't as serious as it could have been, no one is harmed and everyone is safe.
Its going to be a hit to the PR department, but rather that than this be more serious than what have could been.
Moody absolutely railed on some guy that called in and said that it had been a garage door pull rope. Railed on him and anyone that dared to suggest it was anything but a hate crime and Bubba was a victim. I’m tempted to go outside and just sit in my vehicle to listen to him make excuses.You should listen to the guys on the NASCAR channel backpedaling right now
I said something similar to @Michfan and have already apologized elsewhere. How did someone on the track staff not point this out?I heard the pull rope mentioned last night and I responded with "no dumbass everyone is aware of those, no way they **** up this bad" aaaand here we are.

I'm sure NASCAR has protocols in place for situations. They needed to follow the steps to insure safety.
Had they just assumed it was innocent and something dire happened .........
I wish I had your positive outlook, I just can't see it that way, they should have kept it low key until they were sure instead of blowing it up the way they did, a massive and monumental overreaction that I'm afraid could be very difficult to overcome.Sorry, I don't see it as embarrassing. I see it as being sure that everyone is safe and not being threatened in any way.
Yeah. NASCAR was being supported HARD this morning by major sports talk shows.This should serve as a lesson to everyone that it is better to wait and see and get all of the facts before jumping to conclusions. NASCAR, the media, and some fans failed miserably at that. Also, somebody seeing a situation and saying they want to see all of the facts and evidence first and that something seems off does not automatically make that person evil or racist. This is a black eye on the sport on so many levels, and any respect the sport was gaining has now been lost. News outlets are gonna make fun of NASCAR for a minute now
Nope. A sport diseased from the inside out would have lost respect. This whole deal is about unity and pushing out hate. I saw a lot of unity yesterday for all of the right reasons.This is a black eye on the sport on so many levels, and any respect the sport was gaining has now been lost.
As I said to Texas, I wish I had your outlook but I can't, this was without question one of the biggest overreactions on anything I have ever seen and nascar is going to have a very hard time recovering from it.No. This was the right reaction. There was context for that reaction. An overreaction would have been pulling out of Dega without a race--which I asserted.
