seniority on the Salem PD force that Roman could have to let them step up to interim commander first prior to *temporary special assignment dectective? Isn’t that what they originally indicated that Rafe’s *position was?
Once again, if Roman is stepping down from his position in order to avoid nepotism, yet, he skirted the issue saying until the matter was brought to the forefront – he was going to let the subject lie and blatently put Rafe in charge. If I were the other detectives on the force – I’d be going to my union representative a.s.a.p. and crying foul!!!! Favoritism is alive and well held in the Brady clan.December 24, 2010 at 6:10 am #19319ta143Participant
Rafe does have experience considering he was an FBI agent. I would imagine they have a higher level of training than the average police officer. I could be wrong.December 24, 2010 at 11:51 am #19324SWParticipant
your inlaws? Last I heard Rafe was Sami’s husband! I do agree that Rafe has more training and connections though. I wish they had gone with his really working undercover to get the drug dealers in Salem when he quit the FBI. Just have it faked so he wouldn’t be suspected.December 24, 2010 at 3:25 pm #19330PattiParticipant
I would have to believe that a crime of this caliber would require experience over ‘next-in-line’ seniority. Rafe’s experience as a former FBI agent does give him a trump card, IMO; however, I really wish the writers would begin writing him in some meatier surroundings rather than simply being a shield for Sami. It’s starting to not work for me. I need Rafe’s role to become more forceful and, to say the least, highly overhauled. I love GG and his character, but if they don’t soon give him the situation that the role requires, I’m going to have to rethink the actor’s ability to carry the role. More recently I have to agree with many who think he’s boring and a bit wooden. Although hot as hell in the looks department, he does at times put me to sleep. For instance, I so wanted him to punch E.J.’s lights out every time he questioned Rafe’s business being in the hospital, or speaking to Johnny, or questioning the doctors and then telling Rafe it’s none of his business and that he needs to go away. Rafe is Sami’s husband and Johnny’s stepfather. He has every right to be there. Find me a director who will allow the men to take a good punch when they deserve it instead of watching another catfight between Sami and her opponent of the day. Rafe is FBI, for crap sake. Give him the gonads to go with the title.December 24, 2010 at 4:36 pm #19333caseyParticipant
GG’s role on GH (wasn’t he a cop there too?) how did he compare on there to DOL?
The little I caught him I always felt he was a bit stiff.December 24, 2010 at 5:42 pm #19337NoraParticipant
You mean Passions right? He was a cop on there. I think he’s alot smarter on Days than he was on Passions. . although on Passions he did have his shirt off a whole lot more! LOL! YUM-O!December 24, 2010 at 8:30 pm #19344DeeLanParticipant
Since most of those on the SPD are crooked and in the DiMera’s pocket maybe Rafe was the safest bet.December 24, 2010 at 9:33 pm #19340
just collecting a pay check (a lot are dedicated and professional as well) but just to assume that since he was an FBI agent he is capable crime fighter – Rafe may be a nice man, cute and all, but that does not make him a seasoned and able FBI agent or cop on the SPD force. Just exactly how long was Rafe an FBI agent anyway? Eight to nine years possibly, (?) if he graduated from college at say 23, then went directly to the training at the agency which is a couple of years – if he suppose to be the same age as Sami (although, emotionally she’s 14), and she’s 36 chronologically. Remember that Rafe wasn’t an agent for about six months when he quit the first time.
Why would a FBI agent with ten years (if that) have any more experience than a seasoned 20 year veteran on the SPD? I am sure Salem PD has at least one or two dectectives that could have stepped up to the position, in spite of Roman and Bo’s many Keystone cop faux pas over the years!December 24, 2010 at 9:52 pm #19346
nepotism – then from the Comish. on down to the beat cop, they ought to be fired.December 24, 2010 at 10:49 pm #19349caseyParticipant
Yes, I meant Passions.
