Judging by the reaction in the press and Twitter environs, we think many of the windier wind bags doth protest too much, as usual. Because common sense once existed and thrived in this country, no major professional sports league allows its participants to publicly belittle the sport. IndyCar only fortified its stance in this regard after a number of drivers did exactly that in California.

Will Power and Juan Montoya‘s utterances following the thrilling MAVTV 500 at Fontana were completely unacceptable. Their degrading judgments were way out of line and as we wrote deserved action. Now action has been taken. Don’t blame IndyCar however, blame Power and Montoya.
