If you don't have direct experience in something.... shut up.

Default If you don't have direct experience in something.... shut up.

Due to life and other things I haven't posted here in a long time. Anyway....

Once again the mainstream media is making a big deal about this Indy 500 being Danica Patrick's last Indy 500 Race.

Sorry, but as a big car and racing fan, it sucks that mainstream media has over-hyped this woman.... just because she is a woman.

I was once told by someone, "You like to bash Danica but what race car are you driving?"


Fans who regularly watch the IRL and NASCAR know that the only thing Danica is good at is making the highlight reel when she crashes into other cars. This is also mentioned by people within the organizations, so it's not just fan assumptions. Danica also has videotaped evidence of being rude to her fans, to put it nicely.

Meanwhile, over in the NHRA, Courtney Force - an actually good driver who's good with fans - has won 3 times so far this year and is currently leading the points in Funny Car. But do you hear anything about that from mainstream media? Nope.


My issue is the comment "what race car are you driving?" One does not have to have direct experience in something in order to talk about it.

I'll use (American) football as an example. Let's say I tell you that if the losing team would have tried another type of play instead of the one that they actually used they might have won. It would sound pretty foolish to tell me, "Are you a player or coach? Then shut up."
