    Lest we forget, David Courtney. RIP big fella.

    I agree that Faust has seemingly found his groove. Fox on the other hand...

    As to Alex....the guy is less that 30 years old, right? Bob didn't start here until he was 35 so Alex just needs time. I've never had a problem with him. My problem now is Fox...who just goes overboard way too much. Bob must have kept him in check or something but now the genie is now loose. JF needs to get back to his old self, IMO.

    I agree. Bob was a master of that simulcast when it was him and Nick paired together. I have met JF a few times and like him as a person, but don't care for his commentating. Sometimes I will listen to Nick/Daryl online just for something different.

    Bob and Nick on the simulcast were FANTASTIC!! Such a treat to listen to (usually on the radio) in the 80's, when the Kings weren't very good at all otherwise.

    Couldn't agree more on the remarks abt Fox. Anymore, the broadcasts should be titled "An evening with Jim Fox"

    Fox does try too hard to be a comedian,but as others have said he is a real nice guy. I think he became too dominant in Bob's absence.

    I just wish he would call the game more and analyze the game less.
