By gosh Jeff got a good top 10 this time. I’m the first to rag on Jeff (I usually find him off color somewhere), but he NAILED this one. Brilliant list. Clearly Brian France has never done the “Smarty Pants Dance”. Poor scrub (well, rich scrub) prob couldn’t pull a 2.3 GPA at a po-dunk Community College. How Bill Jr put this schlub in charge is beyond me. God, is the rest of the family SO ignorant that Brian is the brains of the operation. Oh I hope not. Just frightening. Oh well, he gets what he deserves – dwindling TV ratings, sponsors pulling out right and left, TONS of empty seats, declining merchandise sales, etc. Way to sink the ship, Francy!!

Just a word or two, Brian’ it was Racing NOT a show, and it was run by racers not, Gucci Gulchers.
Come on Brian make us proud, give it a try, go back to NASCAR RACING, go back, dust off some of the the old ideas they worked then, and will again. I am not hiding behind some funny name, how about you coming out and talking to the racers?.

A “perfect” day for Brian today! There is no bigger FOOL in the world than King Brian!

(unless of course you count the fans that
still buy tickets to his three (3) ring circus!)

Regarding #6 and #3, are you trying to say he’s a drunk, or he must be drinking too much to come up with his ideas? I dont remember seeing any evidence of him having an alcohol problem. What’d I miss?

This is a funny list, the caption under the picture is the best part.

Kevin in SoCal…I agree. There always seems to be inside comments but nobody comes forward with facts.
Not that it’s going to change anything, but if you’re going to sling dirt, show the shovel.

If my memory is correct, BF crashed his suv into a tree while in the parking lot at his condo a few years back. Then did a Mikey Waltrip… Hide, deny, and utimatly have the whole incident covered up. Remember, you get all the justice you can afford.
