Theo is a master at those news conferences.  He made it clear that significant changes are needed, but the proof will be in the pudding.  I inferred two things from what I heard.  Like Ron, my sense is that Rossy is far from the preferred candidate.  Secondly, I was struck with Theo praising Contreras and then immediately talking up the season that Caratini had.  I might be reading too much into it, but I'm sensing that they will be ready to move Contreras for the right return.

Indeed - Theo sounded many of the same notes after last season and then stood pat.  The question is whether he was blowing smoke, or genuinely thought he had license to do what he needed and had the rug pulled out from under him by ownership.
