I think the change is a bit overdue. I'll agree with DSL, that, as a listener, I had a hard time following the play while listening to him. And, as it is, I had an unpleasant experience with George a handful of offseasons ago during the rookie camp, that really shaped my personal opinion about him. Its especially hard to rectify when I see almost universal praise from others that have met and spoke with him.
And I'm not going to say that George, or the other broadcasters, were a a part and parcel of the problem with this organization in the past, but Change has been good thus far this past 12 months.... I think this was the right time for this happen. Best of Luck to George, truly.
He will be remembered and honored for his contributions, but forward, I say.
As for a "replacement", With Bobby Mac sliding into George's seat, I'd look for Andrew Cassels to be a name worth watching. I seem to remember reading rumors that he was trying to land an assistants gig as well as the job that eventually went to Dan Kumal. His wife is from Columbus, if I remember right.
