Frankly, I like Dale. He knows the game & league. Some may not like his delivery and to each his own. But the guy is as informed and knowledgeable as they come, IMO.
I'm honestly not a huge fan of Dale, but I'll admit that he knows his stuff. The problem, IMHO, is that people can get all the same information that he's providing by going online (e.g. just a quick visit to this board will tell you everything that he can tell you, + more) so at this point, the hosts have to be about entertainment as much as information, and Arnold & Kluzak just lack in the entertainment category for me.

For all their faults, Tappen & Milbury seemed to try to be entertaining as well as informative - jokes, comments, etc. Dale & Gord just play it too straight for me to enjoy them
