He's become the Yankees of NASCAR.
And frankly, I don't like the direction NASCAR is going in right now. The Car of Tomorrow seems to have made races less competitive, Jimmie Johnson wins every year, the Chase is a joke, attendance is at an all-time low, and there's really no more big personalities left in the sport. They need to go back to how things used to be in the old Winston Cup - racing hard, bumping everybody else, and of course, rubbing it in their faces in victory lane.
The only thing haters hate more than winners are consistent
winners. The Yankees were already mentioned...add the Celtics, Lakers, Red Wings, Steelers, 49ers, Cowboys, and Patriots to that. Me, I don't mind one bit that JJ pulled off the 4-peat...while ruffling feathers in the process. Just ask Jeff Gordon.
As to the second part, didn't Carl Edwards just pull that off like two weeks ago? He pretty much "did what he had to do" to win that race.
