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.
Job descriptions aside I was referring to towing the company line. I suppose not the best comparison.
The bottom line is Rob sounds like hes leaning the way the people that sign his check want him to. He doesn't even sound natural anymore.
I can tune him out luckily. The bigger problem is what the players are doing on the ice.
