Keep Phil Chenier as the primary game analyst for CSN Wizards.

Phil Chenier has been covering the Washington Wizards/Bullets since 1984 and now CSN has decided to not renew his contract. We the fans love Phil and do not want to see him replaced. This Petition is to raise awareness to CSN that we do NOT want a fresh voice, and we would like to retain Phil if he is willing to comeback (Which it appears he is). Phil is one of the Bullets Greats and deserves to stay as long as he would like. This move does not resonate with the fans of the Wizards and CSN should explore options to renew his contract if at all possible.

From a Washington post article written by Dan Steinberg 04/06/17:
"This summer, though, with Chenier’s contract set to expire, executives at CSN decided they should seek a fresh voice, although the decision didn’t become public until this week. Working with Monumental Sports & Entertainment, they created a new job for Chenier spanning multiple organizations. He’ll be a CSN studio analyst on pre- and postgame shows and other content, will sit in on occasional three-man booths, will do on-air work with Monumental Sports Network (including content focused around the upcoming 40th anniversary of the team’s only title), and will serve as an alumni ambassador and a representative for the team’s alumni operation. He’ll remain on the broadcasts through the rest of this season, and for CSN’s first-round playoff broadcasts."

Chenier, 66, said in an interview this week that he would have enjoyed remaining on the game broadcasts."
