Red face Aaron Yates Incident @ The Daytona 200

.....just wondering what others are thinking....................

1. The other team would be justified in pressing assault charges.
2.Let the AMA handle the situation.
3.Ignore the whole mess.
4. Or????


What are your thoughts?????

Penalize Yates with a suspension. Maybe one from a Harley Softtail?

Yates, about two laps from the finish, clipped a privateer backmarker. After the wreck, Yates drop-kicked him, then started to walk away, returned, and shoulder-butted him. The guy told Yates he was a jerkoff with a pretty graphic motion on TV...

Yates caused the wreck, the backmarker was running wider on the corner to let people pass on the inside.

I do not see the races as I will not pay for Speed as they have screwed it up so badly. Reading a detailed report when I come across "Yates collides with a lapped rider, Anthony Fania, and both crash entering the west horseshoe. Yates goes over to Fania, who is standing up, drop-kicks him and then head-butts him.".

Well I will be danged for he has pulled another one of his stints for most of us remember him laying down on a circuit to stop the race last yr & some other incidents.

We might not like Mladin's words or outlooks, but really Yates needs to see a shrink or politely step out of racing for there is something wrong with him when it comes to the mind area-----possibly he has had to many conussions.

I sat on my ass today infront of the TV and watched Speed all day long.

Yates acted like a classless dick. It was his fault. He drop kicked the guy then gave him a head butt. AMA racing is not NASCAR or the WWE. WHat;s with these Suzuke guys?? They should start doing some pre-hire testing to screen out the A holes.

In my opinon the AMA is on the spot. They need to put an end to this now. He should be severely reprimanded. A lot of people watched the race live and saw what we did. Not cool at all and less than professional.

needless to say, this subject is all over the net...Anyway, I was a big fan of Aaron's, until today...As for who's fault it was, there is video, from a couple angles....Sorry, I have no links to them..

As for Yate's punishment...I'm bettin he gets, points deducted, and at least a 1 or 2 race susupension...

As for the privateer, I wonder if he will really go through with pressing charges against Aaron..

And what about the fighting it self..? Ever watch circle track racing..? man, them car drivers get into some real Fights..I'm not excusing what Aaron did, but some people are making such a Major deal out of it..but not here....

Old, Slow, but ...Smooth

Yates was an ass, period. He clearly ran into the other guy and caused them both to go down.

Thumbs down WWE/AMA

The AMA definately should suspend Yates for at least one race and a fine would not be out of line either.
I wonder how his sponsors feel having him represent their products?? Would this be enough for some of them to pull their sponsorship of Yates??
Sheesh, the guy certainly needs anger management classes!!! .
