Whinging Scaife again....

Reading the Herald Sun this morning, Scaifey now claims he has a back injury. Its funny how when he has a bad run, he'll blame something after the bad result.....

Re: Whinging Scaife again....

I thought Todd Kelly would of had a sore back after hitting the wall yesterday. Maybe the boss wanted an excuse for his poor form!

Re: Whinging Scaife again....

actually this is not the first time skaife has had back troubles, he has had problems before at the first adelaide 500, seriously guys, I don't like skaife either, but the bashing is getting absolutely ridiculous

To Skaife's defense(even though i dislike him) he did say he wasnt making excuses for his result and that his car isnt quite right, well something along those lines. That was from the Sunday Times here in Perth.

Scaife has actually had ongoing back issues since his huge off at Eastern Creek a few years ago.

Re: Whinging Scaife again....

Yes but how come you never hear about thing's like this espcially in the past 6yrs of his winning but now the competition heat's up, it is an excuse, I'm not doubting he has back trouble, most of the driver's probably do but for him to enhance his problem now,it's so funny just like poor old Murph and his trouble's at the Creek in last yr's final round, come on fella's, everybody has problem's it's the way they whinge about them that's funny.

Re: Whinging Scaife again....

for a person with no feeling in his leg he was doing alright to be driving a v8 at over 240 n pull it up in time...

anyways i believe everything skaife has said is 50/50 abit like murphy in the last round of last year..

cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!
