I just read on Jayski that the changes on IWC will be replacing JB and Michael on the show.  Guess that means Schrader stays, I hope?  Maybe the disgust with Mikey's constant plugs, and his tendency to take over the show might have caught up with him?  Poor Johnny couldn't get a wrkd in edgewise.

I was shocked when I read that on Jayski today.  I guess Mikey's act sure is wearing thin then if him and Benson are the ones going.. Benson, as nice of a guy as he is, really doesn't show a whole lot of emotion when he's on. I guess that's why they want to swap him out.  Schrader is a perfect fit for the show so I could see him staying..

Maybe we should praise Chris Long instead of bury him.

Maybe not.  As feared, he has also hired LeeAnn Tweeden... :x

JB is one of my favorte drivers, but he is a bit too introverted for that show.  I'd willingly trade off losing him to get rid of MW.

Just hope they don't bring on Kenny "pyscho laugh" Wallace or JImmy "no excitement anymore" Spencer.

Yeah exactly Cheryl.. They say they want to add two younger drivers..  I wonder who they would choose if that is true?

I saw a pic of Ms. Tweeden on Mark Martin's board. All I can say is: Holy Toledo!!! Some how I doubt that she is being hired for her intellectual ability.
 I agree about trading off JB for Losing Mikey, Cheryl, but I really think that Johnny might come into his own with Mikey gone.
  If they bring on either Spencer or Herman, then the show is over for  me.
  How about Biffle, McMurray, C. Mears or J Johnson as a replacement??

Well, surprise, surprise.....

I may just watch that show again.  But then again depends on who replaces them.  I do like Johnny and I always thought he was just over powered by Waltrip but I do remember when Mikey was not there, Johnny was more forthcoming and would always give us good information.  Too bad he had to go.  I thought he was okay.  

My choices for replacement would be....maybe Biffle, definitely not JJ, maybe even Kurt Busch.  Hold on, I know a lot of people are saying 'What!!?' but think about it.  Any time  he has ever discussed the track conditions, racing or any thing to do with it, he has done an excellent job as does Robbie Gordon.  I don't especially care for Kurt but I respect his knowledge of things and he has a good voice tone, imo.

It would be nice for that show to be good again.  It's a shame about Benson.  He had good insight when he could get a word in, but most of the time he looked like the net in a tennis match.  I do think one of the "experts" should have watched the Cup race live, which means it needs to be a Truck driver with how many Busch companion races there are.  I love Schrader's comments.  Now let's just hope they show a little sense.  Some of the alternatives are worse  :shock:  A rotating team might be more practical.  There just aren't many drivers who are willing to and can commit every Monday morning.  The question is more who is available than who would be ideal.  Vivian, I agree Kurt would be good in that format.  It would be nice to have Bill Elliott and Terry Labonte after the races they run.

Just as long as we don't have someone trying to be a comedian or spouting off their sponsors every time they open their mouth!  JMHO...

Deb, the idea of a rotating team is a great one.  I would like that.

Deb, T Lab or Bill Elliott would be awesome. Terry is a good speaker and both guys are fine human beings. A rotating team or two would be fine too. Cheesy
