It cannot be stated how bad of a decision maker Maar is. The only good thing he's done is bring Erdahl with him from Minnesota. He's the one responsible for talent decisions like Nikki Reyes, Sarah Nicole Davis, Elle Duncan, ect. Made the call to go with the super generic new morning show and putting Duncan/Davis together for NESN Live, which may be the worst show ever created. His eye for talent is pitiful (minus Erdahl), and his feel for programming is worse.
So in other words, he's Tom Werner's dream hire!
Red(s)HawksFan said:The timing is questionable, but if it's true that DO leaked the story today, I'm not sure NESN is 100% to blame for it. If the network was planning on quietly letting him go after the season/the end of his deal, that seems like the best possible way to handle it other than maybe a fond farewell/tribute during the last NESN broadcast of the season.
Unless DO felt his hand was forced by the threat of yanking him off the broadcasts sooner than the end of the season, the awkward situation tonight and going forward might be as much his own doing as NESN's.
I thought DO was extra-giggly this past weekend on the games. I guess he knew the end was near and decided to thoroughly enjoy himself.
