Default "Who is more deserving of their athletic celebrity status -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. or Da

Schmitz said Earnhardt is more deserving. I chose Danica and then blurted something like: "Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the most overrated athlete in American sports today."

Sorry, but this is truly one of the most moronic articles I have ever read.

That is all.

i am not a fan of either of them.. and still thought it was kind of stupid, to the point that it was funny.

Since when are race car drivers considered ATHLETES ??

Next thing, someone will try to say that GOLFERS are athletes as well !!

While we're on the subject of true athletes there, Candy Cane, since when are the Browns considered real football players?

Jerry Green is good. He has to write a column like every single day in a pseudo sports town (Orlando) filled with transplants who just want the funny. He brings it.

What did the guy say that was so wrong, anyway? Jr overrated? I predicted that Shrub would blow him away because talent always trumps equipment, and, well, here we are. Jr. has been unimpressive at best, a failure at worst.

wow. so where does that leave jeff and jimmie?

since jr has shown to be the best driver in the hendrick stable so far this season, does that mean the wondertwins were just riding the coat tails of shrubs talent for the past few years?

the brownies need to learn to lift the seat and pee while STANDING UP first. until then, they will always be the Cleveland Squat2Pee's.

anyways, jr is more deserving of the atheletic celebrity status, although danica has earned hers too. both are good (great) for their respective series. when your doing videos with jay-z and tapping that market youre doing something right.

Junior has a resume. It's that of a better-than-average driver, and that's about what he is. Now he has top equipment, and he's performing at about the same level he always has, with one exception: His equipment is usually still actually running at the end of the day now, and he's benefitted immensely because of it. Still, Johnson and Gordon have 5 Cups between them, and the season is still early.

Hey, I like Junior! I think he's pretty cool. He's just not anywhere as great as people make him out to be, and his popularity is largely inherited. No biggie, it's just that Kyle Busch was, is, and will continue to be a better race car driver.

i dont get it.

if hes performing at about the same level that he always has, how is he benefitting immensely from the better equipment?

of course team hendrick and dei both have resume's too. what did dei have, a big 0 wins before jr came aboard?

what i wanna know is how jimmie magically gained all this talent upon leaving the busch series, and jr. suprisingly lost it.

but youre right. jr is cool and many people think that, regardless of how they felt about his father. the fact that he can remain so grounded despite the presumed "silver spoon" that never existed, is the main reason i think he has earned his celebrity status.
