FSD has decided to save money by not hiring anyone to be between the benches. Instead the Red Wings are just to have Franzine handle it while he floats around out there.  He has a great view by the way! No need for a Color Commentator to replace Mick on the road either...Franzine mic'ed up!

 

lol you and Esteef have to be my favorite posters.

No thanks...I can do without countless mentions of Sidney Crosby during a FSD Red Wings broadcasts... Now if he wants to take Franzine's spot on the roster, I will sign that one! Can't be any worse! :lol:  (quota met)

How can they get rid of Murph and make us endure Darren Eliot? HOW?

Eliot better NOT be Mick's road replacement!!!! Dude played like a minute for the Wings and only played 89 total games in the NHL...he may be a fill in, but I could do better than he could ever! I'd rather have Bill Clement! and I cannot stand him!

Is there any possibility that something was said by Murphy during a broadcast that was heard by a certain high-ranking official (no name mentioned) who then contacted FSD, putting pressure on them to "do something"?

Wtf??? They don't just fire someone like Murph mid-season for ratings. He must have come to work drunk a few times...people on here have made jokes about it, and here we are. Sucks.

Drapes would be an amazing color guy, but he's under contract to the Wings as some sort of assistant isn't he? Or is he in GR?


I can't see Drapes or Ozzie (or any former wings player) accepting a job if it meant Murphy would be canned.

I don't understand how anyone of you thought Murph was drunk.  I never saw it.

Wow, I didn't see that coming... and neither would he.

 

 think the next step is to put Richard Bernstein in Murph's old spot between the benches.

Ratings are bad probably because the red wings suck, and has sucked for a few seasons... Naturally the ratings were higher during the 07/08 and 08/09 seasons

That pisses me off. Should have fired Elliot. Murph probably had a nice contract that got built up over time and thats why. I would have swore that he would be taking over for Micky in the near future.
