    DD was certainly spot-on about a month ago.

    I don't know any reporter who said it better...the "merger" will be sloppy, bumpy and at times ugly, but it will get done.

    I don't always like what he is selling, but he had it right on this one.

    Did he throw anything in about John Paul Jr??

      DD is another one who made his own bed and is now going to grovel to get back into the fold.

      There is actually a CC radio team (contracted, nothing like IMSRN). What are those guys going to do? Not to mention the garage guys and the inside folks at CCHQ? I feel genuinely sorry for their situation. I hope they land on their feet somewhere.

        I'm glad you approve, I don't see much "bumpy, sloppy yet," Derrick Walker wasn't able to make a deal, but I expect we haven't seen the last of him. TG made them a heck of a good deal, it wasn't his fault Walker/Gore/Kalkhoven had some housekeeping problems. I still think The CCWS will make good on a heck of a lot more teams than I thought they would, twice as many in fact.
        It's always been about the Indy 500!
        I realize I have the right to remain silent, but don't have the ability or enough common sense to do so.:rolleyes:

              Mr. Croche you would be correct.

              No venom Mack, just an observation. My love for the league is solid, just the lack of information right now is telling of some disorganization regarding said merger.

              The Fisher rumor is exciting.

                1. Mr. Daly has driven IndyCars and F1. Most of us haven't.

                2. As a commentator, Mr. Daly has done nothing but bash the Series which is now the only one standing. How he will integrate himself into this new world is the issue.

                The above are two seperate issues. Mutually exclusive, if you will and can be discussed as such.

                    If you take a close look at the photo of Daly's accident you will notice that he is indeed holding on to his hollyhocks.

                    Kidding aside, that was a huge one. Wasn't it John Paul that t-boned him and prevented Daly from going legs first back in to the wall?

                      This is an outstanding observation!

                        I don't think he deserves a place in the sport anymore.


                        The truth is, the guy won almost nothing in his entire career. There probably aren't five people on this forum that can name anything major the guy won at all. Here's a hint, he won Sebring in the car that couldn't lose, the Nissan GTP, and propped up by superior co-drivers.

                        This is why it's so funny the Cheever bashers carry on and on like they do. Unlike Daly, Cheever started his own team and won races in the IRL. Unlike D
                        Daly, Cheever won multiple World Championship races. Unlike Daly, Cheever was competent enough to keep a job in F1 for a long, long time. Unlike Daly, Cheever won an IROC race.

                        And, most unlike Daly, Eddie Cheever is an Indianapolis 500 champion.

                        Funny how the cart/champcar apoligists and Cheever haters society doesn't hold Daly to the same standard and critisize him for not winning anything.

                        We've seen above the highlight of Daly's Formula One career. here's the highlight of his F-1 career.


                        Daly does hold one honor though. He's listed prominently as an "F1 reject."

                            As a "so called" CART/CC apologist, I for one have never held Mr. Daly in high esteem. He had a great shot at doing something when he was with Williams in 1982 (the year his teammate Keke Rosberg won the World Championship), but never did. Ditto his CART career.

                            I kind of think his writing a book about racing is akin to Mario Mendoza writing one on hitting, to say nothing of his driving school.

                            I do think he adds color to his broadcasting and for that he's managed to make a great career out of it, but his driving has never impressed me in the least. Yeah, DD is a wanker as a driver, no question there.
