You're spot-on that JR did exactly the same thing here that he does with players, and not in a good way.
My point was drawing from the NESN talent pool. No one is going to work as a full time sideline reporter at NESN and then jump ship to Fox Sports Carolinas. It's a smaller audience with less national exposure.

And as you agreed, it's a classic JR move. And like most of these moves he makes, if they don't work out, next year there will be a new person in that role. That is making the assumption that JR gives a flying **** about this.
