I can't say whether he maintains a grudge against the organization but at the time of his departure from the team, it was a public spat involving Ron Ryan -- then the team's point man on such matters -- and Emrick. The team wanted a dedicated broadcaster, one who would be the PxP for all games. Emrick wanted an out for conflicting broadcasts because he had commitments nationally and had other obligations including some other sports (lacrosse, IIRC). It is why Gene Hart was brought back into the fold, from radio to TV, for a brief period.
