Pssssst, if one is worried about the PR of a move, they wouldn't have made the move in the first place. See Linder, Allen, Bowden, O'Brien, et al., they're no longer running the franchise according to the reaction of the populace. They may be winning some and losing some, but I think these guys understand a consistent winner brings in Reds' fan, not whether or not the guys calling Andy Furman give a thumbs up or a thumbs down
