Tony, Zippy, Chad, Darian, Addinngton and Jeff Meendering

I hope you will all understand in my Dear Chad Johnston thread that those are my raw ramblings from a die hard fan almost immediately post race. I hope I don't come off like a kook but there is one thing that is certain.....I love me some Tony.

I've read a bunch today regarding all the names mentioned above both here and on Facebook. I'd like to play a little game with these names if y'all will humor me......please list each name, and list just ONE word describing your feelings about each. Then tomorrow I'd like to see this and discuss each with what the general consensus of our membership is.

Thanks everyone who plays along.

Re: Tony, Zippy, Chad, Darian, Addinngton and Jeff Meenderin

I wanted to get a sense of what us big time Tony fans thought about what the beginning of the season and the past vs current group of 14 team players.

We all love Tony and want to see him perform well on the track. He's a 3 time champion. Enough said. #smokewillrise is more than a hashtag. It's a promise.

Zippy. While I think like some of you that he has plenty on his plate he needs to decide what his role is in the organization. This guy is no dummy but as a whole this organization is behind the 8 ball and it all lies at his feet to make this better.

Chad. Ok. Chad number 2. I think we're all trying to give him a chance.

Darian. The debate continues over whether he was best thing since sliced bre...oh never mind. He got the result in 2011 but to be fair Tony felt like they were not a good match and was underperforming. Good enough for me.

Addington. Didn't we have high hopes?

Jeff Meendering. The car chief. He needs to step up his game for sure. Apparently he doesn't understand about the car and hasn't learned anything new in a while.

What do you all think??

As I was thinking later about all of this I'd sure love to know if any of these folks ever avail themselves of HMS support and what if anything did they find upon tearing down the Vegas car.

Re: Tony, Zippy, Chad, Darian, Addinngton and Jeff Meenderin

I think, in all honesty, that we spent six months waiting for Tony to be back. We got real excited and thought it'd be this huge, spectacular comeback right off of the bat. Maybe we set ourselves up?

I wonder if he's feeling that pressure too. He did realize how important he is to his fans during this. Does struggling on the track seem like a bigger thing because he now realizes how much he is loved by us? Do you know what I mean?

What can we do as fans to help him succeed? Yeah, I just asked that question. I say we have to be cheerleaders, we can't be critical but rather constructive. But most of all we can't be disappointed.

I am a PROUD Tony Stewart fan. Will always be. No matter what.
If Smoke can't do it then Rowdy sure can.

Patti, you are sure right about us waiting with much anticipation for his return. He is Tony Stewart after all. I don't think any of us expected 3 wins at this point but we did expect better. Good heavens only one lead lap fInish.

Do I think this will be the future of the 14? Nope. But like you I'm standing with Smoke no matter what.
