Did you people listen to the scanner yesterday?

If so, where in the world did you come up with good communication. It was the same ole Jr., bitching, griping, trying to second guess the crew. It is the same thing he did with Tony Jr.

Gain confidence, my rear.

Why else would McGrew tell him, "We just need you wheeling the bad boy".

To me that means, report to us what the car is doing and we will make the calls about air pressure, bump stops, etc.

I think there is a bartender job open at Whiskey River, maybe you can do that Joonyer. Save some money too!

Instead of worrying about them hoping for Dale Jr making the chase maybe you ought to worry about Kyle staying in the chase. He's been dropping week after week and now is only 53 points away dropping out. That's not real good considering he has 3 wins.
Kyle isnt my driver so why should i worry about him?

I just think the hype of Dale Jr doesnt match the preformance. Its

No different than if the NFL constantly pushed the Detroit Lions as its "Great Team"

Hopefully he will get back to victory lane.
What a great comeback!! Cranking out those top 15 finishes when you basically have unlimited funding and engineering, all your teammates are winning every other week, and the guy you replaced (Kyle) is driving circles around your sorry A$$!! LMAO!!

Thanks for backing us up! We are Jr fans because we want to be. It's just a shame that people just can't let it go. Alot of people just want to talk about their favorite driver without getting bashed with every comment that is made. And then wonder why we come back and do the same about their driver. Just don't understand why they are even on a Jr forum. I think it's to just cause trouble.

Not quite true.. at times yes, he was complaining! But other times he/Lance were on the same page and when Lance told him to "drive" it was POSITIVE reinforcement of their communication. Take some time to listen to other drivers and you'll hear the same or worse. You are just putting it all on JR, because you are not a fan of his. That's OK... but try to be a little bit more objective.

I wonder about people like you. Why do you listen to the scanner of a driver you don't like? To come on here and post crap? That says way more about you than it does Junior or his fans. Really "Dale" get a life for pity sake!

I just read the exact quote oyu are talking about on another board. It appears you have conveniently twisted it around for your own gain.

Junior called out a whole slew of changes to the car. Lance told him not to worry about it, that he had it under control and he just needed to drive the car. Junior replied, "10-4, it's just a history deal." You think Junior isn't trying to change his behaviour???? It appears he is quite content to let Lance call the shots.

you didn't answer the question. why come here and post on a driver site you don't like.. why not post on the driver site you support?

I know, to stir up things and vent.. OK

Goly Gee, when my driver gets a 14th place finish I'm sad and depressed that he did not win. When you guys get a 14th the heavans open up and the angel's sing! You spin it like it is the greatest victory in the world!

I can't believe how hype and "overrating" some guy who is the son of a famous driver has destroyed the American spirit of competetion!

What's next? the popular NFL team who misses the wild card game is declared the "Super Bowl Champion"?
