    Are you people that support this little Punk Kidding me.
    I have watched the show and all I have ever seen is a Rude Disgusting little Punk, when I look at Nick.
    And for you that are saying that this is not his fault, you are doing exactley what he wants. You are telling him that he is above the law. He needs to go down for this and go down hard!!!!!!! I don’t care who he is or who his father is, he broke the law, PERIOD!!!!!
    I always loved and respected Hulk Hogan and have watched him for years, but if he doesn’t make his son stand up and take responsibilty for his actions and his crimes, he will lose my respect forever. And if it turns out that Terry (Hulk) was the driver of the Viper, he needs to go down with his little Punk Kid.
    Grow up Hogan Family, your NOT above the LAW!!!!!!!

    You have to be kidding me; Nick Hogan is acting, as any teenager in his situation would have. He has a love for fast cars, (which he purchased him self) his fascination led into a professional career, which cannot just be handed to people. Nick as any other normal teenager has done was speeding in his car and lost control. People should not be criticizing him driving fast or crashing. What happened was unfortunate for both families involved; they have both gone through a rough period of time. Nick is standing up for his actions in the best way possible; he is staying with his friend not avoiding the damage he caused. People should realize that Nick is only 17 years old and for this to happen to a kid this young is terrible. People who are being rude or calling Nick and his family irresponsible are obviously not looking at the other side of what is happening in an effort to make the injured better.
