I guess Hamlin has been going to the Kyle Busch school of how to make friends and influence people:

I don't think Hamlin's comments are unreasonable. It's a tough tough spot for all with playoff drivers and non-playoff drivers competing with each other. What is right and what is wrong? Where is the line that non-playoff drivers shouldn't cross? Like last week, when Suarez didn't cut Truex any slack, back in the pack?

I agree it's a tough combination with playoff contenders and other drivers on the same track at the same time. My problem with the above is Hamlin's choice of words... saying (1) he doesn't give a damn about the fans and (2) that Bowman should have basically "respected" him and given him the win. If Hamlin thought Bowman was such a "hack" and a "terrible driver" then maybe he shouldn't have kept himself along side of the 48 car lap after lap after lap. It was just a matter of time until something happened and it did. The smart driver would have let Bowman go, then do the bump and run on the last lap for the win.
