Blah, I had a feeling that the structure of my response was suspect, but can't unsay what's already been said. As the original thread's been closed, this is my response to Rinoa and anyone else who've felt that my words were harsh.
Please do not misconstrue my reponse as sexist and I apologize if you felt any offense to my statement, as it was not my intent to be sexist or offensive. I fully believe that it doesn't matter what gender you are, as long as you have both the game knowledge and public speaking skills to provide useful, constructive commentary. If anything, Rinoa, I'd like to see more ladies on equal footing with guys in the gaming scene. It'd be awesome to see you or other lady Rioters added to the announcer lineup in the future.
However, my original point is that I don't believe that adding a lady to the announcer lineup "just because they have a pretty voice" is a good idea... it would be distracting more than anything else.
