I understand that you and others are trying to see why this decision was done, but its the the way he has gone about this, by simply firing these two popular vets the way he has, over the phone, not offering to discuss his plans with them or to at least explain the budget crunch to them to see if they are will to make sacrifices, he simply insults them hugely by firing them, insults a significant fan base by pushing BS in magazines, and risk them (the DH's and those J&M fans left) not coming back at all simply because he behaved as if he just met Deidre and Drake.
Deidre was backburned from January 07 to June 07 and never complained, while during that same time period Drake, MBE and others did so publicly and loudly. Drake was fired and John killed off and he complained loudly and often. Deidre held her tongue and sold the show whereever she went, calmly stating that everything would work out. She did more to keep the J&M fans holding on from October 07 to January 08 than KC, Hogan Sheffer, and Drake combined.
I just don't think she deserved to be fired like someone who just joined this show last year and has not shown it some loyalty. I think she would have agreed to be put on recurring until they got their heads above water because she has stated she wants to remain until the end. That offer simply was never made. Noone is saying Days is not in a tough position or that hard choices must be made, but assinine and insensitive choices are being made and those who want to be overly objective are ignoring those facts.
