I certainly hope he has no hand in marketing or going after television contracts etc..., and can't imagine Castellini trusting him with any of that after the last 10 years.
Hate to say it, know some disagree, but I think Allen is one of the, if not the, worst things to ever happen to the Reds org.
When you think of creative, intelligent, visionary businessmen - John Allen is the last person that should come to mind. I pretty much hated everything he did - even though DanO was Lindner's favorite monkey supposably.
One thing about the DanO hiring was that - certainly DanO was one of Allen's candidates after bringing him to the table with Lindner in the 1st place, and probably had him in his top 3. Allen had a lot to do with that as well - his hand was in everything.
He should really be let go altogether and the people he hired - he'll have no problem finding work along with DanO and friends. He's been here a long time. Clean sweep please.
