Carl Edwards' slap on the wrist

I wrote my column today about NASCAR's lenient response to Carl Edwards intentionally wrecking the car of Brad Keselowski Sunday in Atlanta. I think Edwards should have been parked for a race -- most other sports wouldn't have stood for something like this.

But NASCAR is trying to go with its "Boys, have at it" theme this season to increase the side-by-side competitive racing (and the TV racing and ticket sales as well). This is the dark side of that credo.

Here's our own Jim Utter's news story about the incident, as well as an online poll where you can vote as to whether you think Edwards' punishment (officially, a 3-race probation) was correct or incorrect.
