Skaife gets Australia Day honours for services to motor sport, what-tha, when does the dummy spit to end all dummy spits and a suspended sentance for "bringing the sport into disrepute" constitute services to motor sport.

What kind of out of touch wombats give these awards.

I do commend snozz's efforts for charity but they are no more or less than many other public figures.

Next think they'll be giving Steve Irwin an award for child-care, or Steve Bracks an award for photography.

Go Figure!

I heard this on the radio this morning and thought it was funny. Services to charity?... Is that supposed to be the wins he let Ford have last season? Of course he'd never lose if he was trying! :hl:

Ha ha, I heard on the news Steve Irwin was a close 2nd to Steve Waugh for Australian of the year, just imagine if he won! Now that definitly would've been a "CROCK" for sure.

yea i give him credit where it's due

He is worthy of a medal.. he has been at the pointy end for years now and has taken the next step buying the team.. we are not talking about chicken feed here.. its big $$$.. add to that the time he and his family spent raising and donating money to charity, all the work he puts in with HSV ,, gee not many people have such a diverse workload and could still excel like he has...

One tantrum ( in the heat of the moment) shouldn't detract from his achievements

FFS we're letting Shane Warne play cricket again and he was proven as a cheat! A tantie doesn't even compare to that

Congrats to Skaifie

he deserves NOTHING geez! what is it with australia and skaife? he cant drive, its just that he had a quicker car than ford, and as holden as a major sponser, money is no object... just shows you how f'd up some things are.....

they probably gave it to sooky sooky just so that he dont sook like a little f'n baby that he is....

Apparently he has a couple of Ronald Mc Donald house rooms named after him "temple of the big schnozz" or something like that in recognition of his services to the organisation. Perhaps he just has a Ronald Mc Donald house in his schnozz! It's big enough!

So is he the only one to have dummy spits,lets count up the ones with D1ckhead Johnson's dummy spits and you will find good old Dick out does Mark 2/1.
They all have dummy spits,but the focus seemed to be on Skaife because he is such I hiprofile driver.(the best 3 years in a row;))

I never realized you guys were so narrowed minded!

I'd have to say guys, I agree with Chris5ltr. I think skaife is a reasonable guy, who has done pretty well in the sport over the years, and I think has been a reasonable ambassador, even remembering dummy spits (most of us, including sports stars have had some).
I wasn't aware of his charity work, but hey, good on him. If he's using his position to benefit others (and sick kids at that), I'm happy to stand up and salute him - its a bloody good thing to do.
The main objections seem to be that he's spit the dummy, or drives a holden. Let the debate rage on about the professionalism of a tanty, but objecting on the basis of him driving a holden is just pathetic and one eyed - exactly what people like to accuse the holden owners/drivers of being . . .
