While the blazers consider adjustments for next year in order to better compete, my hope is that there is also a change in the broadcasting corps. Specifically, my hope is that a replacement for Mike Rice can be made in order that we viewers are afforded a higher level of viewing experience.
I want to point out that my comments are, in NO WAY, a result of the recent issue's with Mike's son, Mike Jr. Of course Mike Jr.'s actions in no way are a reflection of Mike Sr.
I am a native Oregonian; moved away after college in 1987, and moved back to Portland in 2010. The quality of commentating in every other market is noticeably superior. It's time to upgrade the color commentating element in order to deliver a commensurate professional product.
