Wow! Taking your penalties like a man! Pretty strange behavior if you ask me. When's the last time we saw that?

"I know I made a mistake during the race"

Yeah, you got caught. Since when is blocking illegal; they have training schools for that.

Block pass is one thing, being a lap down, getting the blue flag and then blocking is bad...

Yeah? Well, I saw SuperCross! TWO TIMES dude, and they blocked like crazy and the good guy even quit over it so if you're trying to tell me SuperCross! was anything less than a completely factual account of racing then it's going to be really tough to convince me.

I dunno about this one. His action didn't really have any effect on Reed. Reed bumped Stewart a lot harder than that, several times during the race.

Could have been a honest mistake.

It was like that in SuperCross! too except that they had these motorcycles from "American Nami" which sounded like Vietnam won the war which I guess they sorta did but that's not really the point because they were blocking on purpose and everybody knew it and even said so on teevee.
