In his defence Jack took the blame I'd say.
From the article:
"We just made the wrong choice," Roush said. "We'll be wiser going to Atlanta."
I'm not blasting Jack. I was simply saying that Goodyear can really do no right. They make what was a better tire than expected and they still get mentioned as being part of the problem, no matter how small a mention. I find it amusing, that's all.
