You know, one of the things that amuses me about Hawk's fiercest critics is how they like to compare him to Vin Scully. "Scully would never do this ... Can you imagine Scully doing that? .... Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah."
Let's be clear about one thing: Hawk is not Scully and Scully is not Hawk. And there's nothing wrong with that. Why does Hawk need to be more like Scully? He is who he is.
I think there are some perfectly legitimate criticisms of Hawk out there. The fact that he isn't like Vin Scully is not among them. That is just stupid.
