I actually like Strader more than I like Emrick. In fact Strader/Pang/Engblom >>> Emrick/Olcyzk(or however his damned name is spelled)/McGuire and its not even close in my eyes.

The next step is to dial down the damn matinees, but afternoon sports seems too ingrained in the American culture for that to happen. Still, I'd like to see them try.
At least move the matinees from noon to something reasonable like 3pm. And They need to man up and get some Sunday night prime time games on NBC proper before the Cup Finals round. Maybe a few Saturday night prime time games too. It's not like NBC has lucrative original programming on Saturday nights in prime time. No one does.
