Sad to see anybody lose their job, but I have been critical of his style for years. I always viewed him as a sort of fanzine-type reporter - back in the pre-Internet days there was room for that. Not so much now.
And to all those who would like to see cox, Simmons, or even bob mccown follow, all three are much different cases. While all three share a similar sarcastic distain for leaf fans with Berger, that's all Berger had. Mccown has brains (like him or not, he is not a dumb guy), cox has sources, and Simmons can be downright funny.
Poor Howard, the era of the one-trick pony is over. Truly nice to see they allowed him to post that nice career retrospective blog yesterday though. I actually really enjoyed reading it.
