Another year, another rigged vote from Darrell Waltrip

Once again we found ourselves presented with the opportunity to vote on whether the person infamous for abusing the past champion's provisional, Darrell Waltrip, will continue with his catchphrase, "Boogity, Boogity, Boogity". This year he poses the question: "Use It or Lose It?". As I wrote a year ago, the poll results on the afternoon of 11 January showed those voting "No" led with 86%. It wasn't until 12:28AM EST early Saturday morning that the first comment was posted indicating the poll wasn't going as DW hoped it would. If the FoxSports website was "hacked" as Waltrip now alleges, why wasn't the FBI involved and anyone arrested/convicted? Maybe because no one hacked in, but merely voiced their opinion in the poll.

Now another poll was posted last night (which I saved a cached copy of) and surprise, surprise it vanished this afternoon. What will be Waltrip's explanation this time? More supposed "bogus votes"? Or perhaps it will be like last year when Fox's [Sports Chairman David] Hill said "Waltrip won't drop the phrase 'because I've got a bigger vote than anybody else.'"

One final question: what explanation will FoxSports give to the 17444 that voted to have Waltrip "lose it"?
