Tiger spits, curses, and has thrown a club or two. If getting pissed is so bad why are people tuning in not turning off when it comes to Tiger?
I'll take you further than that; why is it the only fight in NASCAR anyone can recall in the '79 Daytona 500?

The world got to see this. Not too brilliant when you've got an in-car camera.

The best thing that could happen to good old Kurt would be a run in with Happy Harvick. I am sure Kevin would be more than glad to take him to the woodshed where he could be properly punished.

Really? No other driver has been caught flipping the bird on camera? If you're going to play that card at least find a clip of him mooning or shaking his tallywacker at another driver. Even fans have been caught.

^^ Thought the topic was Busch and Addington, not other drivers and a drunk JR fan.

In regards to both of your answers to my posts--so does this make it all right what Kurt did? You are allowed your opinion and I have mine!
Maybe you should read this for another point of view--a good point of view about the Busch brothers by another respected driver!!

My point is many drivers have acted like a******s over the years. I don't necessarily condone the behavior, but when you stick a mic in someone's face during the heat of the moment, which is what sports media is after, don't cry foul when the reaction is more than you expected.
I've listened to my favorite driver, Stewart, beat down a reporter during casual interview.
Nothing of any value in that article.

Keep up with me- just pointing out other drivers have been caught on camera using the "you're number one" gesture. Just happened to stumble across the video of the fan.
My mistake for thinking objectivity was permitted here.

And what would make you think their parents aren't the same way?

The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree so you may be right.
As far as the article with competitionplus--again, each to their own opinion! I thought is was really to the point! My opinion!
Tony is my favorite driver. Yep, he's had his problems with the interviews but I also said in an earlier post that I can understand certain situations and deal with it in some cases but Kurt is out there and acts like a spoiled brat. Big difference in Tony and Kurt--big difference! My opinion!! Oh, and Tony did learn and mature--something I doubt Kurt will ever do!
