Time for Carl to Grow Up

Reading all the A.P. articles, blogs and other related media concerning Carl Edwards, Kenseth and Roushfenway only made me look into this on a deeper level, especially where Carl is concerned.

I've concluded, although my conclusion is relative to only one side and/or possible reason{s}, that Carl is disliked not only in the RoSox camp, but in the general garage areas as well. This is a guy that has it all. Personality, talent, looks, brains and brawn. He is very sure of himself with glowing self esteem and confidence. Chances are he grew up this way and his peer rivalry goes back as far as Kindergarten. Living in these shoes is not easy. His peers have most likely always viewed him for something he's not... a cocky, self-centered know-it-all. Guys like Carl usually develop a lot of resentment and unresolved anger due to their being misunderstood, disliked and ridiculed. This evolves over time and can erupt. The good news is, with maturity it usually levels off.

Does this excuse his on-camera display? No. But it does make sense in what is a very gray area. I hope these guys work this out. RoSox is an awesome organization with the potential to win championships and it's a shame to see all this talent faltering due to boys being boys.

Man, it's 11pm - and that seemed like some really deep stuff --- but I agree.

Or, like most males, stock car drivers can be hot headed at times.

I am a cellular switch tech and I blow my lid a little sometimes.

At least Carl didn't "BLOW", but instead let off a little steam.

I thought maybe he's else could I explain to myself what's wrong with him?
