OK--actually I guess you are right as I find myself criticizing Danicas crew now but its tough not to say anything sometimes. The issue here is I watch Danica and her crew more then Ryan and his crew and since he doesnt say anything in the open, Iam not seeing all the problems with Ryans crew that many of you apparently see. I do see Danicas lousy car setups race after race, 18 to 20 second pit stops etc and as Nascar even comments on how bad her car is and showing in car camera at her fighting the wheel so bad race after race. Therefore thats fairly accurate info iam going on, whereby Ryans issues are just what I see from most of you but-- OK--I guess we all complain.
The difference is Danica will say when her car wasnt/isnt good when interviewed and over her radio so at least she says something so the team definately knows it, and thats NOT whinning, its telling them like it is, which as ive said almost all the drivers do at some point.
Point I was once told--If you dont tell me something is wrong --how will I ever know?

I understand some of the Newman fans frustration over this (to be honest I thought there was going to a crew chief change a long time ago). The 39 team is a weird team. I think mediocre is a bit much. Gibson is mediocre though. They are too inconsistent. The pit crew is not very good. And Newman and Gibson have lost any chemistry they have. Though if Newman keeps saying that he wants Gibson to be his crew chief one has to question if he even knows what he want and question his judgement.

Dale jr fought tooth & nail to keep Eury Jr. as his CC & guess what. Mr. Hendrick said no we are making a change. I am pretty sure this was a good move for Dale jr. & I never hear you question Dale Jr. I think you want your drivers to be loyal, but as an owner you have to be able to make the changes anyways.
BTW I dont hear to many Danica fans saying many nice things about Eury now. Imagine if Dale Jr. & Eury were on the 39 team owned by SHR. Dale Jr. fans would also be screaming for a CC change. I know this because I remember when it was happening. Same thing here. Only it isnt in the press 70 times a day, because the media doesnt follow Ryan like they do Dale. So the fans that follow "the broadcast" doesnt know of the issues the rest of us know. maybe Rick can give tony some ownership advice
