Michael Knight: Yet Another Former cart Employee Devoted to Destruction of the Sport

Filed under: The Disciple Blogs — Disciple of INDYCAR @ 12:36 pm

He also writes a blog. The purported topic of his latest missive is the fan unfriendly traffic disaster at Kentucky that alienated tens of thousands of NASCAR fans and the seemingly unfazed attitude of Bruton Smith and crew. Officially, their attitude seems to be of the que sera sera school of thought.  THAT is a legitimate topic.

Why, then, would he devote the first meaningful paragraph after the setup to express his wish for public apology from IMS for all the ‘damage’ caused to the U.S. open wheel industry? The only real ‘damage’ was watching cart kill itself off in brutally stupid fashion. Twice. It could not have happened to a more deserving bunch of self-interested, arrogant egomaniacs. Did you know the number about how much the ‘IRL’ spent now being bantered about by this band of ignorant, cart-centric tongue-waggers is now $2 BILLION? He even goes as far as to try and excuse the taunt by saying he believes champcar leadership should also apologize. As if that makes such pointless inclusion into an unrelated topic OK.

It is always the same with that bitter handful of ex-cart employees who refuse to let go of any portion of the past. We are nearly sixteen YEARS down the road for the ill-fated cart boycott/mutiny II and they STILL bring up the same pointless garbage at almost every opportunity.

These people are also hypocrites. In his ‘split’-related missive of just a week ago, he chided the anonymity of chatroom dwellers that slam him and subjects of his writing by hiding behind their screen names. Isn’t Knight the guy who uses an anonymous pen name when he writes on behalf of an oil company?

The sooner these bitter, petty losers begin either dying off or discovering maturity (unlikely given their continuing hysterical yammering) the more at peace the sport will finally be. The top 3 are Gordon Kirby, Michael Knight and Ed Hinton.

In truth the open wheel niche is being nurtured in ways never before attempted. It is being led by a successful CEO with a proven history of turning very little into a whole lot and involves the dedicated effort of players from both sides of the so-called ‘split.’ One of the biggest impediments to forward progress are heels-dug-in malcontents with column space who refuse to budge from the last century and feel compelled to spread some of the most bullshit-riddled propaganda ever foisted on rationally thinking people.

Michael, it is high time you grew up, pal.

  1. I’m glad I don’t know who or what you’re talking about.

    Good description of a situation.
