Wayne Scanlan is the exception. He is a true journalist.
They are company men. That is all they are and as long as they remain uncritical of the Senators they will remain employed. Donovan is okay but the problem is Jason York froths at the mouth when he is on (going on about Chum) and he doesn't bring much despair. Todd White is fine for the most part but again he lives close to Phillips so he can't call him or other players out.

Also, why isn't Paul Henderson in the Hall of Fame, I'm going to have a pint now."

Phil did a good job.
Phil was horrid. He would high voice all the time, wax about his agent and girlfriend and was arrogant beyond compare. Sorry he lost his job but glad he got replaced, even if is by the terminally bland Terry Marcotte at the moment.
