I think there is a difference between 'having a teammates back' and being a complete moron. Having two drivers go at it, or two pit crews go at it is fine by me, but if I was an owner I would draw the line if one of my employees tells a media member to GTF out of my face repeatedly when these guys (in ALL sports) know they are fair game. Once you are IN your garage or motorhome the media knows you are kinda 'off limits' and most respect that. Of course my example is Kurt Busch/Jerry Punch, and where I don't care too much for Mr. Punch, Kurt was way out of line. These guys forget without the media they are n-o-t-h-i-n-g, media made them what they are ($$$). Generally speaking, motorsports in america is a tier two - nearly a tier three sport as far as local media is concerned (except for places like Charlotte and Daytona), local media does not cover them at all unless a 'big' event is happening at a local track, whereas they cover tier one sports year-round regardless of if they have a local interest in it or not.
