They need to bring David McCreary back!

well said. MT is a nice enough guy, seems to do okay enough...I'm just not sure what else I'd expect of the arena host. Sure, he's a little 'folksy' but this is Columbus OH, midwest USA

To me, it's really white noise anyway...I rarely pay much attention to the hosting activities and if I do, they tend to leave my mind shortly after it's over so it just doesn't bother me much.

I've been to several other NHL arenas and have concluded Todd is an embarrassment to our fine city.

If the franchise wants to improve the arena experience and shake the "cowtown" image, then replacing Todd is long overdue.

Thanks.

The biggest problem with the FSOhio is that they show Reds games instead of the Jackets games if you live near Cincy. I guess at this point there's no legal way to watch the game. It's frustrating

That's your cable providers problem not FSO. FSO provides an alternate channel.

You gonna double-check to make sure Fro's being inconsistent here? Because I have a guess, and it's "no."

not sure if I read correct, but I liked Jim Day, didn't really care for John Michels (but knowing how FSO handcuffed them, I didn't give him enough credit), and liked Natalie...I could give or take Mike Todd, but he's a decent guy and does a good job with what he has to do...

Referring to Derby's post. She quotes you and suggests that it's unfair that Natalie is fair game while MT isn't. I don't believe that's a position you have ever held.

I guess I was posting it to the thread in general, shouldn't have quoted Fro. Mea Culpa, no hard feelings?

Doesn't bother me any, just be careful whom you quote when you're going to take the whole forum to task.

And, in fairness (and I'm not going to do the research), it's highly possible you've got many folks complaining about both. It's pretty difficult to do a "good for the goose..." commentary in a forum with a whole bunch of individuals.

This reminds me...

This season, instead of Todd doing all the intros, etc, for between-action stuff, they sometimes had one of the Pepsie girls do them. Her voice was much too shrill to be amplified throughout the arena and it made me crazy! Didn't anyone running the entertainment side ever listen? It was painfully unintelligible and annoying. I understand having another voice involved, but there had to be another young woman available with a more suitable tone.

Agreed, pete. At the very least someone should have been turning the treble down on her mic. Which wouldn't have solved only mitigated the issue. Yes, if they're going to have a co-host, it needs to be someone else.

nope...i made the comments a couple of times when I got the game ops ears...they had no issues with her voice...Kallie is a nice girl, but yeah, her voice goes right thru me...but same thing goes for her, she did what she could based on what she was told to do...

I felt the same way and the people surrounding me seemed to agree.

CBJ front office people being tone deaf? I don't believe it.

Apparently they take the idea of "brick by brick" very seriously.

Some of you get your wish
I'll be okay *sniff*
I'm sure she's moved on to something bigger and better.

Jody Shelley better have nice hair.

I've also heard a lot of talk about Jody Shelley, but what about Manny Malhotra? He'd be terrific in broadcasting.

I would agree, if he wasn't 80% blind in one of his eyes.
