Just a simple question. Why all the hate towards him. I love what he brings to a race each weekend. His win or die trying approach brings a ton of excitement to each race. If that approach cost him titles, that's his loss, why should it bother you. Why is he judged on a different scale than the other riders. Example, two weekends ago Villo lost it on Boni not once but twice, he was pissy walking off the track from the heat race (Boni's bike stalled took a nasty digger that collected Villo in the process) and then completely lost his mind when he didn't make the LCQ. Had Bubba done this I can only imagine that we'd be trying to approve a public hanging. I appreciate every rider out there that has made this season so great. Here's to a great year!!!
Its a matter or how frequently something happens. How many times have you seen RV lose his cool? Compare that to how many times Stewart has done something dumb.

I think the reason for so much "hate" is because this guy pulled his own Superstar card before really accomplishing that much. Too much hype, Sponsor money and arrogance to ask for a SX only deal....The rest seems like history, now !
I think the real problem is political correctness.
Everytime I start to like the guy, he does some bonehead thing, or bitches [see the wind tunnel after the ATL sx] and then I go back to being a hater...

It's simple, really. Yeah, Villo lost his cool with Boni but he never went over and kicked his motorcycle over- THAT is a bitch move but Bubba gets a pass because he is the media darling. Also, did you notice how Villo had the class to move over for lappers at Toronto? I believe that if RV would have lapped James "Badge #7" Stewart at Daytona, Stewart would have taken him out. RV rode a smart race and let Stewart alone.
Anyone in the public eye is going to eat shit when they pull a bonehead move like Stewart did with his police impersonation- that's just the nature of the beast. Hell, I'm not even famous and I'd be eating shit for doing something so stupid as would probably all of us on this board would (and should). Nobody is picking on poor Bubba, he is reaping what he has sown.
Did any of you follow SX in the 80's and early 90's? T-boning, blatant takeouts, and whatever else was fair game and a common occurence. And I don't recall all the whining and complaining from anyone back then. Must be this internet thing causing all the hate.
1. People are dumb.
2. Follow the money.
villo did look like a bitch but how many people could stay calm when you know you just f**k up while leading the points in the biggest series of his career. weather it was boni's fault or not i know i probably would have lost my cool a little bit knowing that i just f**k up and could possibly not be leading the series after all that happened.
now for Stewart's dumass, i respect his work ethic and determination, but as for a person and the way he acts i have no respect for him. he may be the fastest rider but look how far thats got him this season. u don't have to be the fastest to win the championship, just the most consistent and being the one that there week in and week out, i.e.. Reedy and RD.
