Andrew Gross leaving beat?

Recommended Posts

Looks like the Devils writer for The Record is leaving for Newsday to cover the Islanders. 

 

Next man up.

That's Gross.

At least we have Amanda Stein (meh) and Chris Ryan (yay!) left.  I can also imagine The Record replacing AG with someone.

Ehhhhhhhhh not a huge loss imo.

Stein does a great job imo (if you can look past her occasional insecurity outbursts on twitter) so I won't miss him,

That's far and away my biggest issue with her.  That and he occasional politics she throws in there.  At least she is not nearly as bad as Jesse Spector in that regard.

I don't blame him for wanting to move on to a new gig, for whatever reason on Twitter I saw him taking a lot of abuse from the cesspool section of our fanbase and it noticeably got under his skin a few times. I don't know if he caught more flak from the idiots in our fanbase for being a former Rangers reporter, but it sucks we're losing a good reporter.

The older I get the less I care about these things, don't follow any of that stuff besides what is posted here and hf boards. No loss in my opinion.

Gross was fine, the newspaper business is gross, and the idea that I'm going to watch a fvcking video of a journalist talking instead of reading a piece he wrote is crazy.  Whoever they hire will probably be worse.

Kinda how I feel, but to be fair, a lot of the information that is posted here comes from people who are checking Twitter and/or these beat reporters.  The info has to come from somewhere, and a guy like him was someone who got the information pretty quickly, and pretty reliably.  Weird thing to me is that he just took the position like a year ago, didn't he?  Feel like it wasn't long ago that we lost Tom Guilitti (sp?).  

Anyway, I hope they replace him with someone, mainly because it's always nice to see the team get more coverage, and I'll miss him if for nothing else than he had the same last name as me.

Sounded like the Isles beat was easier for his family situation.  He was fine I guess, but these days best reporters aren’t great for that much unless they can get some sort of info as to the team’s internal deliberations which for the most part Devils beat reporters don’t get.

How quickly can we pack Andrew's bags and get him over the Throgs Neck Bridge?

Yeah, nothing against Andrew but this one is easy to digest. He didn't do such a great job, or stay for long enough,  that I grew attached to him.

Unfollowed Amanda, way too much politics mixed in.  Hope the next guy/lady is good

I like AG, I though he was finally starting to get some personality across and build up a rapport with Devils fans on Twitter and there were some fun back and forth between him and Chris Ryan.
