Okay Gabber's, time to start rifling through the stats, deciding who's hot and who's not, it's fantasy football time!!!

We'll be starting the leagues at NFL.com as we have in the past. Most of you are already signed up there, if not, signup for NFL.com and then post below you want to play and I will email the invite to you, same thing goes for anyone who has played in the past. I have to email the invite from the league for you to get in because it's a private league.  

The draft for this league is scheduled for Sunday, August 24th at 7:30 pm. If the demand calls for it we'll start a second league like we've done previously. 

Are you ready for some football??? 

If his Name Wasn't Petty.... Tags: Kyle Petty Danica Patrick NASCAR

 
He'd be just another average driver, not really that relevant. He obviously rode the coat tails of his famous father and judging from his stats he was only able to hang on to sponsorship due to the Petty brand, if he was anyone else those last 13 years of being winless he'd be washing windshields in the pit not sitting behind the wheel of a race car. Since he chose to call out Danica Patrick I decided to look up his stats since I'm only a novice race fan, but I know enough that he was never any standout driver like Earnhardt or Bill Elliott. Let's take a look at some of the statistics that standout most from this driver who made no bones about calling out Danica Patrick. First, she's done something he never did, ran Indy Series, she is not a prodigy but he is. 
 
Here's what I got from his stats that made me wonder why he felt the need to point out how she qualifies, he must have a very short memory, or inhaled way too much carbon monoxide. 
 
Petty raced for 30 seasons, but didn't get his first win until his 8th year. His last 13 years of racing he had no wins at all. He had only 8 wins overall during his spectacular 30 year career. 
In 30 years he raced 829 times yet he won only 8 poles.
His average start? 23rd
His average finish? 21st
In a total of 232,922 laps he led only 3,909.
He had 28 DNQ's.
And had 52 top 5 finishes in 30 years. 
 
Now to the diehard fan these stats might mean something, but for me they say Kyle Petty is the last person in the world who should be questioning Danica Patrick's ability. Maybe Danica doesn't qualify that well, but Mr Petty, it was hardly anything you mastered in 30 years of racing…from the stats I'm seeing, you sir, sucked at qualifying too, and maybe you did breathe in too many fumes…judging from your average finish you were pulling up the rear weekly!
 
Stats were taken from http://www.racing-reference.info/driver?id=pettyky01
 
I had to run when I posted this, and then thought it would be fair to offer some comparison from Danica's career and I'll use Indy stats first since that's where her career took off and Petty never even ventured into the high speed, open wheel racing that as far as I'm concerned takes a lot of balls to run in. 
In 7 years Patrick ran in 115 races, had 0 DNQ's, won 1 race, had 3 poles, her average start was 12th and average finish was 10th.
 
In NASCAR  she has started 60 races, never had a DNQ (better than Petty to date in both INDY and NASCAR), average start was 18th (better than Petty), average finish 21st (same as Petty), she's had 1 top 5 and 7 top 10 finishes in just 4 years. If anything, in Petty's first four years, and cars were nowhere near as fast as they are now, he fared the same if only a little better in top 10 finishes, he had to wait 8 years to win his first race. Again, Kyle Petty needs to shut the fuck up! And by the way, Danica looks a helluva a lot better with a ponytail than Petty does, and I'll go out on a limb and bet she looks a lot better naked too. 
 
The Bro Code - Volume Two Tags: Bro Code
I had been wanting to start a new Bro Code for a while, after what I saw today I felt now was as good a time as any. I've got two that are big time Bro Code violations! Since its been a while since we last did this I'm sure we can come up with some really good offenses against the Bro Code!

1) Guys who lay poolside all by themselves should never, under any circumstances use their cell phone to take pictures of themselves to post online.

2) Any guy who uses Foursquare should get his Man card revoked for using it, and needs a smack in the head when he shares what he posts on Facebook so everyone knows he just left the QuikMart with a coffee and $10 in gas. Really dude? We not only don't give a shit but now we all know you long to be mayor of the local gas and go. That's pitiful.
