I am thoroughly disgusted!! DISGUSTED!!!!! Any other gm who has blundered like Sweeney has would have been fired ..most would have been axed after that 2015 disaster. There has to be a buddy system going here no other explanation. Sweeney is Neely’s boy, Neely is Chucks boy. I can’t see them gettin out this mess. With Sweeney headin the helm this ship’s heading for Dave’s Jones locker at almost warp drive.
