I keep wondering if you have to have ADD or ADHD in order to drive in Nascar. ADD would give you an insensetivity to risk and faster reaction times.
Test Mikey and Kyle.
But Senior Judge Graham Muller who is hearing the case will be as fair as possible but this may get crazy.
Judge Muller heard the Riddick Bowe case, when Bowe kidnapped his wife and kids. Muller gave Bowe 30 days but ordered him into treatment for punch-drunk syndrome. Bowe is severely brain-damaged.
Judge Muller also reheard the Jim Bakker case and reduced his sentence from 45 years to 18 years (which was within federal guidelines).
Muller also challenged the appeals process in drug cases. He felt the sentencing differential between crack cases and cocaine cases was gross abuse of the legal system and would no longer accept pleas, stating that defendants should go ahead and "take a chance" and go to trial.
I'm wondering if this may be a Supreme Court case.
If Nascar does not win this case, this may be the beginning of the end of Helton and Gary Crotty who is "legal counsel" for Nascar. It will make Nascar management look like dictators and thugs. And this is what hurt Michael Eisner at Disney, looking like a thug.
What else could happen is Brian France "swaps" places with Lisa Kennedy, which could give the appearance of a "softer, kinder" Nascar.
Whatever happens, if Nascar wins, then things are going to get worse and the francise system may become more of a usual thing. Independent owners will become a part of Nascar's past. Drivers will become more "replacable" and more "sheep-like". Nascar will become more like F1.
I really think the worst outcome for Brian and friends in this case, win or lose, is the drivers looking around and saying, "this is nuts, we need to protect ourselves!" NASCAR is very proud of the "It's our sandbox" mentality. Of course, that is crap! The sandbox belongs to NASCAR, the drivers, team owners, track owners, sponsors and everyone else involved in the sport. NASCAR has always been built on the backs of it's superstar drivers. If those drivers decide to protect themselves and organize into a union, ownership of the sandbox will change hands immediately. NASCAR is pulling it's same old mafia-like crap here with Mayfield. Eventually the drivers are going to man-up and challenge NASCAR on this one-sided relationship.
No the drivers won't strike. The driver's tried before. That's how Richard Childress got into the sport-he was a scab driver during the 1969 driver strike led by Mr. Petty at Talladega. And the sponsor's are not going to support the drivers in a strike.
Jeremy is done, unless Judge Mullen sees some merit in Jeremy's case. Judge Bridges would have settled the case himself if their wasn't questions surrounding the case that Judge Mullen can settle. And so much controversy in the decision, I don't think that Judge Bridges wants to be the fall guy whichever way the case rolls.
