OK, here's the article causing a ruckus.

A NASCAR fan makes the case to euthanize stock-car racing. - By Robert Weintraub - Slate Magazine

Your thoughts?

Personally, the fact that he put the word sport in quotations ("sport") makes me question whether he was ever a fan to begin with. I'm SO tired of "ESPN-like" sports writers saying nascar isn't a sport.

Robert Weintraub is on TMD now as I write this. (Oops, sorry. Apparently they couldn't get Mr. Weintraub on so they replayed an interview with Al Gore on MSNBC)

Was the author of the article actually on TMD this morning? I missed recording it.

I agree with quite a few of his points and disagree with some of it. I think Nascar needs changes starting with its management, but theres no reason why change cant be made without killing it.
