I understand what D&D fans are going through. It sucks. I adore Dee and will miss her like crazy and Drake won me back over again this year. However, you have to put yourself in the situation and doing what is best for the show. How many other people work there? Some keep saying that if your just going to axe vets or limit them, cancel the show now. Ok, so cancel a show and put others out of work and break the hearts of fans who still like the show and want it around because your faves are out? That doesn't seem fair to me.
Oh, how I wish there was Internet in the 80's. Actually, no I don't and I don't think most fans do either because, if there was, I would bet the show would've been in a similar predicament and we may not have ever gotten Bo, Hope, John, etc. I know people who watched at that time, including myself, who were just as mad, if not worse, then many on the net right now over seeing their faves pushed aside for the new era of couples and characters. Same goes for the early 90's. How many beloved faces were let go? Matthew Ashford and Missy Reeves were extremely popular yet Matt was fired. I remember then being a worry about Days crashing and it didn't. Why? Because they retooled and through that process came out with a tighter, fresher show and the storytelling was upped a notch. If the show can do that again, there will be no problem.
I'm in upper management. I hate it. I can't bare laying off people who are friends or people who have worked for us for over two decades but you have to. Otherwise, the business goes under and the whole company is out of work. We all have our faves but sometimes we have to look past that and acknowledge that there is valid reason behind this. No one has to agree with it or keep watching or whatever but some are acting like there was absolutely no rhyme or reason to this and there was.
