Some people, especially new listeners, didn't like his voice, and that's a factor to be considered as well.
It's been several years though, so who knows if he's still got it? I always sensed a lack of passion when he was covering the Seals, as they weren't the Solar Bears, but he'd also get some post-game relief with the Solar Bears so he could stay on track and not end up a rambling mess.
