As long as said employees don't act in a way that is prejudicial to someone or a group of people à la Cherry, then I don't think blaming the whole station is relevant, no.
I remember a story about a writer who covered the Expos, who manged to piss off a player. The player wanted to start something with the writer, I remeber either Melnick or Elliott Price warning the guy that it would be a mistake, the writer played professional lacrosse, and had a rep as a tough guy. The player didn't listen and things didn't go well for him. I always thought it was a guy named Blanchard, but I'm not sure.
I know what you mean. I see comments here all the time, Marinaro[or Stock] has managed to annoy someone, so the Team has no credibility. I dunno, I think it's a pretty good sports station. It could be better, but frankly, me not liking someone doesn't mean they're wrong.
