And he's terrible from a technical aspect: his use of language is substandard and his enunciation is absolutely awful.

I actually liked him between the benches as he was something of a bonus to the broadcast, but the role they have him in now is just terrible. He can't do it and he needs to be replaced because the Sabres broadcast is now as bad as it's been in my lifetime between Ray and the fact RJ isn't what he used to be.
Agreed. Sure Brown will put a Bills spin on his things, but he does write "so and so struggled" when it is warranted...Ray will never say that.
