I must say I haven't really noticed Haber being gone, didn't mind listening to him, but hated watching him (does that make sense?)
I think that having a rider added to the commentating breakes the monotony (sp?) of hearing only McKee's & Gaffney's voice. They do a good job, but with just the two of them I'm sure they are scrambling for things to constantly say.
I think McKee needs to come up w/ a new saying the "he's got velcro on his wranglers'" was cute for a while but I'm tired of it now. It's still funny though but like I said they have to scramble (in my opinion) for things to say.
I love the new format too and I really like JW Hart, he is so down to earth and funny.

I think that bringing riders up to the booth, sparked alot of peoples interest. Its something new and different and lets us see a different prespective on things...i like it alot. It seems as though they've caught on that the fans like hearing from the riders, and looks like there going to keep doing it every weekend. I think its the best addition that the PBR has made in a long time
to tell you the truth i really have not missed haber at all, and i wasnt against him or anything. But it seems so much more natural for Justin Mckee to comentate...if that makes sense.
Does anybody know if Craig Hummer is being added to the OLN crew??

From what I understand no fans heard it. It went over the OLN headseats. So all OLN crew and the riders in the locker room heard it. Nobody in the stands did, thank God for that! There probably would've been a riot!!!

I for one liked Haber in the booth. He became a really good play by play guy while he was learning the sport. He allowed Justin to be Justin! I met Bret once in Nashville in 2004, and he was a class act. He spent about 10 minutes just talking bulls with us! We all make mistakes!
