Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! The first great news of the offseason. He belongs in the east coast, clearly did not have the appropriate sensibilities to deal with Minnesotan fans, all too awkward. Hopefully this means a lot more Maurney Gelner.
As long as her moving to Twins duties gets her off the Wild broadcasts... She is awful on wild games.

I will say this - I know the players and coaching staff liked him, and that's important in his job and not terrible easy and also probably leads to access and insights from which FSN benefited. Good luck to him in Pittsburgh.

I never understood all the hate for Robbie. I could only assume it was because he used too much gel in his hair.
No it was his awkward exchanges with the lucky lotto winner fans in the stands and his all too frequent uninvited references to Bert about inside jokes that clearly had to do with drinking. He wasn't bad interviewing the players or anything, but he doesn't belong in a Midwest market.

I really didn't like this guy personally because he was a dick to my brother and his friends during a pick up game of hockey. For some reason he got real into it. Also, when I was in Houghton Michigan for Gopher Hockey, Robbie was just a prick at the Downtowner bar. He was on mission that night if you know what I mean.
However, after listening to the Gleeman and the Geek Podcast I have changed my opionion on the guy. He really did a great job covering the Twins and brought some respectability back to the broadcasts. Good bye Robbie.
