The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Neither in sorrow nor in anger

It's a fairly safe bet that Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be socked with a 25-point penalty and a $10,000 fine for an expletive he uttered in Victory Row at the EA Sports 500 yesterday; there is apparently ample precedent should NASCAR decide to do so.

Did Janet — Miss Jackson if you're nasty — really cause all this?

I could understand the fine, for anyone, but the point reduction should be based on competition infractions, not behavior, I didn't agree with the previous two penalties and I don't think they should do it here either.

I'd have to concur with that. It's not like he ran someone into the farging wall, fercryingoutloud.

It appears Ravenwood has a similar idea.
