If you're a professional athlete, the quickest way to lose a ton of dough is to imply that your league is fixed and the easiest way to do that is on Twitter. According to Hamlin, he was just trying to have an open debate on ways to improve racing. Unfortunately for him, NASCAR didn't see it the same way and hit him for 50 stacks.
