So they are in magazines, just like the SOW and SOD articles about J&M leaving.
Right, except this comes from the show. See my post above - my point is that NBC/Days is missing this opportunity to promote this. You were saying that these only go on the internet, so I corrected that. But the point remains that the show is missing many opportunities to promote this or pay tribute to Deidre and Drake.
See this is what I don't get. You seem upset because they (as in Sony/NBC) didn't pay Drake and Deidre a tribute, but they didn't do that to all the other actors that have been fired, at least not the past years. Why should Drake and Deidre be treated as royalties when others weren't? Is it because they are long time vets? So were Thaao, Renee, John and Matthew when they were fired, and more than once. Is it because they are a "supercouple"? Jack was part of a supercouple too but not the others. Is it because J&M have one of the most vocal fan base?
No. It's not because of any of those, and I can tell we're not going to agree on this. It's because Deidre Hall started on Days in 1976 and has worked there about 30 years total. She's been the star of the show for years. I can't say either of those things for any of the people on your list. Drake has worked there 23 consecutive years, and he's also been the male lead for many of those. Again, can't say that for the people on your list. We talk here about "A" stories, and for most of the years that J&M have been on the show, they WERE the "A" story. That's why I think NBC owes them something here.
Did they not get paid and paid very well? Have they not had adoring fans thru the years worshipping the ground they walk on?
If nobody knows about J&M leaving by now maybe it's just cuz they don't care. How many articles have been posted about it? Even FOX news had a blurb.
I guess it's hard for me to muster more sympathy for them than I do for the average Joe who just lost their job.
