I will believe all this chitter chatter once he proves he can do better and communicate in a mature manner. He gives a lot of lip service about change and then does not follow through. But so do a lot of other people so I am not just down on him. He does sound positive so only time will tell.

Well, I am a fan but the first time he disrespects Steve I am done. He is lucky to get a chief of Steve's caliber and if he can not communicate with Steve properly, well, that's it. Cursing some one out is not communicating and that is what has ticked me off to certain degree last season. We'll see.

Joonyer actally needs to leave Hendrick and go back and attempt to revive DEI. I do believe that the expectations and pressure were too much for Joonyer to work under. By now most people have understood that despite all the hype, Joonyer is not a great driver, he is more like a Journeyman driver with a great last name keeping him in a first class ride. I am sure that Joonyer would not have any trouble getting a sponsor to go with him and perhaps being an owner or an owner driver is his real place in racing. I am not sure what Joonyer will do after next year if his results do not improve greatly, three or four crew chiefs, two car owners and all of the money and resourses have not produced consistant winning results or anything near championship caliber driving.

At one time I did not like Joonyer because I have met him and to be honest, he is not much of a worker as far as getting better and felt entitled because of his last name, however, at this point I actually feel sorry for him, having to go to the Monday morning meeting at HMS knowing that he is by far the weak link in the organization. It can not have been fun for the past three years.
