Gino is the color guy - Gil is the play by play. That job doesn't go to the former player types, it goes to a broadcast professional. I know some of the youngsters here get frustrated with his detail miscues lately, but his call of XXXVI is a classic - which is why they used it for all the DVD's as opposed to the deadpan Pat Summerall call on the broadcast. Dale hasn't quite got the pipes for football play by play by those standards, but you could do worse. DeOssie would actually make a great color analyst along side whomever replaces Gil when Gino finally (and these days almost mercifully) hangs 'em up. As for the original thread topic, I'm not cutting Ratgenius any slack, but I have no doubt he had no concept of what a Pandora's box he opened when he gave the OK to call in the Feds (NFL Security). But that's what happens when you cavalierly backstab your mentor while working for his obcessively jealous nemisis and almost former employer at the Meadowlands. It's the ultimate proof that Eric wasn't ready for the big stage and his inflated ballboy ego would ultimately result in his own demise on it.
