The fine is no big deal. The sponsors will make it up to him. The points suck, though. Nascar shouldn't do it for something so minor, especially now that they're changing the rules every season with regards to the championship. End result is, they'll probably have an increase in viewers over the remaining races anyway, hoping for more jewels to fall from Jr's mouth.
Every year the broadcasters were pushing the limits just a tiny bit further until it finally culminated with the Janet Jackson incident.
What a non-event. Some b-grade singer's desperate publicity stunt shouldn't mean Jr. loses points. That's what 5- and 10-second delays are for. I doubt anyone's kid will turn into a serial killer just because some middle-aged boob pops into view. The irony is all the gridiron mayhem surrounding Ms. Jackson's 'incident' goes unnoticed.

Ever heard the expression, "the few have ruined it for the many"?

Well said guys. Up here on CBC late in the evening you can see and here some nasty stuff and later it's like porn and this is a public broadcast station.

Not to beat this subject to death but who decides what is acceptable to air and what is not. Pardon my use of these words but it is to show a point and is not meant to offend anyone. Bitch and ass have been acceptable on soap oppera's and on shows such as Saturday night live and even prime time shows like Will and Grace, E.R., Law and Order (all of them) and Joey. I have watched pretty racy scenes on Days of Our Lives (wife makes me record it and watch it with her every night). And there has been on some rare instance that a live news broadcast that some redneck spouts off the f word. There have been also many instances that you will be watching basketball (football, baseball, whatever) and the coach's will get so peved that they will scream obsceneties at the top of there lungs yet they are not on mike, but you know exactly what they are saying. Next you will see little fuzz boxes over the mouths of everyone. Like others have said before, the few have to ruin it for the many, yet I will bet you a months wager that not one person will stop watching NASCAR because of a slip of the tounge. By the way, was Janet Jackson fined for what she did? Did anyone knock her down two notches in the top 100 list for her little "slip". I can tell you this much, if JR does loose buy less than 25 points, there will be a lot of protests by a lot of loyal fans.

ur right Issahs dad the network was fined 500,000 for the wardrobe malfunction not sure about her though also their is a list of 7 unacceptable words that the fcc puts out but ur right nascar is a grassroots sport with occasional grassroots language and though it is apparently a mistake I think the penalty is unfair to all but the rule has been established through out the season and shouldnt have been such a big surprise Nascar was just trying to remain consistent in their rulings for once in their existence the rule sucks and had they known that they would have to use it on Jr they would have never made it in the first place rest assured what truly sucks is some soccer mom thinks that everyone should have to pay outrageous fines as a result of a celebratory slip because the truth of the matter is this that with the exception of church (I actually once heard a priest say S***) there really isnt anywhere one may go that they dont hear a profane word from time to time its just another person who thinks they should be god and everyone else should listen

I'd say fine the media again for airing the program just like Janet Jackson case!

I think today it would be an interesting exercise to determine what the S word actually meant, and specifically in that context. Therefore whether he had actually committed an offence could be debatable, particularly in front of a jury, still I guess he can live with the $10k fine but I think the language at the end of the season if he loses by 20 points could be a tad rich

It is a rule and he knew the rule ahead of time. If he isn't smart enough or doesn't have enough control over cussing then hey, that's what he gets. Anyone that can't talk for two minutes without cussing has a problem....sorrry Junior.....he probably won't finish within 25 points anyway....earlier in the year I believe he lost another 25 points plus a fine for intentionally spinning himself out to cause a yellow flag caution so he could go into the pits and get his car worked on..the problem is he said he announced that he did it on purpose....oops again....not very smart...

My motto is this..Fly...Rebuild...Fly
