Aremid, I have no problem with differing opinions. I really don't. It is okay that you don't agree with me on this. I agree with some things you say and some I don't.
I still don't see the baseball comment to read everything you are saying or JSF for that matter. I don't see him as meaning "all inclusive" to include all the ones in his comment. If he said it about SN, MBE, BD or AS I would question it and possibly have a problem with it as they were front and center during that time, but looking at the others were front and center: James Scott, Blake Berris, Rachel Melvin, Darin Brooks, Brandon Beemer, and even Johnson and Madison and then all the newbies like Willow, adn those two crazy island people were all minor leaguers compared to the vets on Days. In regards to Days alone they are rookies still and in regards to what Days fans wanted and needed at the time they should have been starring minor stories building to the major stories with the exception of maybe EJ who did get a lot more involved in every damn story than he should have been.
But Drake didn't call any names so I can't say who he meant and won't condemn him until he comes and says - this is who I meant by that comment. Then if he clarified I could but not until then will I do it.
You make an excellent point about Thaao. I have wondered that too but didn't include it in any of my comments. How did he get by with his statement. he basically said that James Scott and all those were little guns and that he and Joe were the big guns and the only ones taht mattered.
I think a big part of it boils down to just what you said "popularity". And not saying that against you but the whole daytime genre as a whole. Fans are quick to condemn those they don't like esp. when it might be offensive to their favorites. Fan bases have a lot to do with it. Going back to the Jate thing that PR brought up. The reason that was such a stink is because Drake went against the Jarlena fan base for the first time in forever. He liked Jate and wanted to pursue. That was sacriligious and uncalled for to his fan base.
Thaao is seen as a salvation for fans but personally I have had a problem with him ever since he spilled the beans on the SSK story. I know that Days would have probably scooped it themselves eventually but when he revealed the info he did it ruined the suspense of the story for me. He to me always did that out of anger over being fired.
The best thing for Drake at this point is to move on. Unfortunately the Days fanbase will always hold this against him, despite the fact that he gave the show 20 years of devoted service. With Days fans unfortunately you get one chance at a mistake and that is it. At least for some of them that is the case. Not a condemnation of Days fans but it is just an observation.
Old Milton said that it was "a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of a wrathful God".
Old Stevie turns it around and says it is "a dangerous thing to fall into the hands of a wrathful Days fan."
Who knows which is worse?????????
