    Re: FSN Hearing the Criticism?

    The people who "really, really like" George (who basically sounds like a continous loop of Sally Field's "you really, really liked me" Oscar speech) keep saying they are glad he is not a "homer".

    But he is, he is ...a homer.....for the other team.

    I mean how hard is it....to either not cheer as much or talk about non-stop, about the other team.....or be as excited for the team you cover as you are for the other one.

    No one wants a Ken Harrelson.....but this year, with the team in a real race for a division or WC, he could be more pumped for it.

    I do not bash him for being nice.....i think he fits the percieved idea of what a Midwestern person is like......he could be the Vin Scully of the midwest if he wanted to, beacuse of his stories.

    I've gotta believe he's a Reds fan. He is more excited, not as noticeably, but more excited. This is my main concern with Steve Stewart. He is not a Reds fan at all, and even though he's being paid by them - he couldn't care less if they win or lose...

    This could just as easily mean the Creeper gets the heave-ho and George winds up breaking in the newbies. Grande's "StL connection" with Bob C. just might make him the teflon man

    (Let's hope not)
    Never overlook the obvious
