They should have replaced him with ScottLaw or Mr. WEO.

I was just starting to like Rodak. I thought he did a decent job but we held his New England ties against him. Oh well, on to the next one

Can't blame beat reporters for being negative the past 20 years.

 

Hopefully we give this new guy something positive to write about.

I neither like nor dislike him as a reporter. He doesn’t really move the dial. But I’m going to take this as a sign that we are going to the Super Bowl.

Ahh, some of the replies to that tweet are classic.  Overboard, but classic.

 

I think Rodak grew in his job over the years, but man, was he terrible for the first few.

Some of the tweet responses are brutal.  I never warmed up to him, although he did grow from terrible to mediocre in his team here.

For his first several years his stories provided absolutely no insight and it didn't even seem like he was watching the team personally.  I think he started to "get it" more recently but still lacked any real journalistic "spark."  If I read anything of his it was truly by accident.

I had no issue with Rodak.

 

 

I do have a poor first impression of anyone who describes themself as a "habitual line stepper"  outta here with that

He’s pretty boring. Doesn’t provide any insight at all. That’s why there is nothing to like or hate. I get that’s his job, to report, and not to analyze. Just saying. I don’t remember if he had “hot takes” in the past.
